new deer regs?

12 posts in this topic

so hows this working now.

i buy an all season liscence so for archery I can shoot a doe no matter what! now am i able to take a buck in the lottery zone also if i have shot a doe in a lottery zone? i would use one of the antlerless tags for the doe and use the either sex for the buck. from what i read i dont think i can i think you can only take 1 deer out of the lottery zones per year. even if i would get drawn for a doe permit would i be allowed to shoot a buck in a lottery zone? some one help me clarify this up its kinda blurry. thanks

Go back a few pages and you can read some of the past topics like 2007 Hunting Regulations where this has been throughly discussed.

The way I understand it. If you hunt a lottery area, you can only tag one deer no matter what.

exactly, unless you tag your other deer in some other non-lottery area.

Does this mean one deer per lottery zone or one deer in any lottery zone and any other deer has to be taken in a non-lottery zone?

The way I read it & it was discussed. You can shoot one deer total between all lottery areas you hunt.

That would make sense. Since you can't use a bonus permit in a lottery ares, you'd have to use your either sex tag and be done hunting lottery areas. You could, however move to managed and intensive areas to secure as many bonus permits as allowe and hunt there, correct?

Yes, one more in one managed area & up to four more in intensive areas, depending on how many you've tagged already, total of five. If it were me I wouldn't shoot a doe in a lottery area with my bow until after gun season, otherwise if Mr. Big walks by you can't shoot him, unless you're party hunting with someone who will tag it. You would be done hunting in lottery areas. I'm not sure if you have to use your either sex tag or if you could still use a doe tag. I won't be hunting any lottery areas, but I thought it said you could use both doe tags if you wanted on your All-Season in a managed area & could still fill your buck tag in an Intensive area. I think the key is the number of deer killed in the areas, not so much doe or buck, but I could be wrong about that.

lcornice can you clarify that for us? Thanks

Whatever number of deer that are allowed in each area is the total you can have. Lottery area 1 deer, Managed I believe is 2 total, and Intensive is up to 5. It does not matter if they are all does (permit required in lottery), but you can not shoot more than one buck.

However, if you shoot a Buck in a lottery area, you can go to another area that is intensive harvest or managed and shoot your other deer, up to 5 total.

Correct!

Now this is new to me. If you buy an all season license to hunt 4A and are unsuccessful during Firearms season, you are not allowed to muzzleload hunt? That is what the guy at Gander Mtn. said to my father-in-law. That doesn't make a bit of sense. Why buy an all season license then, especially when it is a lottery area.

The guy at Gander had it wrong, or you understood him wrong.

If you are successful during the 4A season in a Lottery area, or anytime, you are done tagging deer in a Lottery area. You could still party hunt with someone who has an open tag.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
