Yes, you can take 7 with EA hunting.

lcornice, what about special archery hunts. If I'm in a lottery area and use by either/or tag early on a doe, can I still take a buck in a special city hunt that's in a managed area? How do tags work in special city hunts like this.

Yes. City hunts are treated as something outside the greater permit area. So, if you're hunting say the New Ulm archery hunt and take a doe, you can still take a buck in the lottery permit area. However, if you take 1 buck anywhere you're done on boys since the statewide limit is one. You actually don't get special tags from the cities. They typically give you an authorization to hunt and you use the state licenses and permits.

I hope that answers the question.

I'm also kind of unclear about the city hunt, and I'll be doing one in a month and a half. I was under the impression that there was no limit in the city unless the specific area you are hunting has a specific one (mine does--5). I understand that only one deer in the state can be a Buck, but I assume that with both a Archery and a Firearms license I can shoot 5 does in the metro, then 1 buck and 4 does up north in my intensive harvest area. Not that I will, but isn't that the legal limit in this kind of a situation?

Page 66 of the 2007 hunting synopsis goes over the bag limits.

So, fundamentally, does shot in the metro (601) do not count towards the 5 deer statewide limit. Page 66 states:

STATEWIDE BAG LIMITS FOR DEER

• An individual hunter may only tag one legal buck per year, without

exception.

• In lottery deer areas, only one deer can be tagged per year, without

exception.

• In managed and intensive deer areas, hunters may tag deer on both

their firearms (including muzzleloader) and archery deer licenses.

• The cumulative bag limit for an individual hunter in the archery, regular

firearms, and muzzleloader season is five deer. Exceptions to the

five deer limit are:

- the early antlerless season where two additional deer may be taken.

- deer area 601 (metro deer management zone) and the bovine TB

special area, (deer area 101) which have no limit.

- landowners can take one additional antlerless deer if they have a

free landowner license.

lcornice, thanks. I guess my basic question is, if I wanted to take my first archery deer in a lottery area, I would have to use my either sex tag as no bonus permits are allowed. And since my either sex tag is then gone. No buck allowed in the city hunt, which is in a different area that is managed, because I'd only be able to use bonus permits then. I think you pretty much affirmed that. Thanks.

Is there any need to shoot 7 deer anyway?

If you're living off the land and not eating in unless you're killing it like Ted Nugent! lol. In a joking mood today. BTW, I bet Ted eats beef. But he might shoot it himself. Who knows?

Well, I myself ate about 4 full deer this year. I have a Mother, Father, Sister, and friends that ask me for venison every year. I will try to make everyone happy and shoot 7 deer this year.

Is their a NEED? I believe most consider food a necessity.

I can eat 1-2 myself, and I have 3 other people who want me to shoot one for them. Also, I plan to donate to Second Harvest Food Bank (which I'll pay for & per DNR rules) so if I'm a good enough hunter there will be at least 7 deer that don't go to waste.

I have no problem with it if you use them up, but for some to shoot 7 is just a goal, then to throw it all away or whine and complain that they cant just give it away unless its done from a meat market, thats when I see the issues, and trust me there are those people out there, and you know who you are!

Trust me, there are those of us who can eat 7 deer. Me and my sons shot 4 deer last year, carved them up ourselves and never even gave away one chop. I was out of venison by June and I am really craving a big fat juicy veni steak on the grill right now. I could eat venison 3 days a week. I agree there are those that shoot 7 just because they can, but I will shot them to manage the herd and put dinner on the table.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
