No. You do not need to harvest a deer in the general season or during another deer Special Permit hunt before your Second Deer Special Permit season begins. If you harvest your first deer of the season during the Second Deer Special Permit hunt, you can still hunt an available general season or your other deer Special Permit to fill your first deer tag.
You must buy a second deer tag to hunt a Second Deer Special Permit. You can only use a second deer tag for a Second Deer Special Permit hunt. The second deer tag must also be the same weapon choice as your first tag (unless you have a Multiple Season tag). Please note that second deer tags cost more than a general season deer license and tag.
