With an ASL, you get 3 tags, 2 anterless and one reg..(correct)!

Now, these tags, meaning 1 for archery, one for gun one for muzzle CORRECT??? or is it one tag per entire season????

Please advise!!!

You get 3 tags like you mentioned. You can hunt all three seasons. Archery, firearms, and muzzleloader in any zone or zones you want. You can also use one or all of the tags in the same season. Of course depending on what zone it is. If it is a Lottery area only 1 deer per weapon. Managed areas 1 doe and 1 buck, and intensive harvest 4 does and a buck with additional intensive harvest tags after the first 2 are used up. Last you only get 1 buck tag per year per hunter period! Reguardless if you hunt 1 weapon or all 3. Hope this helps.

In theory they are 1 tag for each season. In reality you can use all 3 tags with the same weapon if the opportunity arises.

The only catch depends on what the harvest level is in the areas you are going to be hunting. If you are in a Lottery zone you still need to apply for a doe permit. If you are in a Managed then you are only able to take 2 deer TOTAL. If Intensive then you can take up to 5 with bonus permits. The key is to know where you will be hunting and the rules that apply. There are pages of info about the ASL if you feel up to it.

The defining factor about the use of your tags is where you plan on hunting.

Also, yes it is 1 buck only and with 2 antlerless or the possibility for 3 antlerless if the zone matches.

I got a question about the managed part. I am going to Ripley this year which is a managed area. Lets say I shoot a doe and a buck there. Can I still use my 3rd tag to take a doe in another managed area (183) where my cabin is? And if so may I buy a bonus tag as long as it isn't in a managed area I have taken a doe already?

FYI, Zone 3B is not included in the all season license. Unless they changed it.

FYI:

All of your questions can be answered by reading the REGULATIONS!!!

I read the regulations as have others and no one thought the REGULATIONS covered this so that is why I posted the question.

Gee Brule, sorry, but some people do get confused by the "not-so-clear" regulations. crazy.gif

Neiko,

You are only allowed 2 deer in a managed area. So if you shoot a buck and doe at Ripley you can only shoot more does if you are in an intensive harvest area. You can mix managed areas but are limited to 2 deer only so if you just get a buck at Ripley you can get a doe at the cabin. Hope that helps.

Do yourself a favor and call the number at the top of page 125 in the 2007 hunting regulations. There's a toll free number for general information and licensing. Maybe I was just lucky, but the one time I called with a question regarding deer licenses and lottery/managed areas, the man on the line put it all out there for me.

Neiko,

Your are mislead, Camp Ripley is considered part of area 248. 248 is a Intensive harvest area, Camp set's is own bag limit of 2, to limit harest. So if you are lucky enough to bag two deer, your opportunity to shoot two in a managed area still exsist's.

Let's help those with question's and not assume everyone understands what is stated in the reg' book. If they don't understand and break a law they are considered "poachers". So let's just help each other out and answer questions if we know the answers!

I'll go further yet.

Don't take everything you read on a public forum as gospel.

Call the DNR if you want the gauranteed right answer.

I am not saying to ask her, because there is lots of good "opinions". But opinions on how people interpret rules vary from what the DNR means them to be sometimes.

Exactly!

I did not mean to come off rude, but the answers are in the regs. I guess when I posted that, it was after reading multiple different posts having questions about various hunting and fishing regs. After reading them I looked them up in the book, and what do ya know, there they were.

Also, whenever there is a thread trying to "define" a regulation, it never fails to have more than one solid answer, which goes to show not everyone knows.

I may be generalizing a bit here, but i feel that people are more apt too post the question they have rather then just reading the regs. Sure there are a lot, but for some reason, I just don't find them all to confusing.

Anyway, like I said, did not mean to attack or offend anyone, just pointing out that the answers to you question IS in the regulation handbook.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
