      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

I assume you used a bonus tag in CA? If so you can use your either sex tag in any part of the state and you may purchase and use three additional bonus tags in the any intensive harvest areas. The zones 1-4 don't affect bowhunting.

The bag limit for managed areas is 2. They can both be from the same area or 2 different areas. It doesn't matter.

Both answers are correct. You can no longer hunt in lottery areas, you can get 1 more either sex deer in managed, up to 4 more in intensive and of course unlimited bonus tags in the metro zone #601.

Zones 1-4 don't apply, just stick to the lottery, managed, intensive classifications.

Powerstroke,

You stated "you can no longer hunt in a lottery zone" So are you saying if he takes a doe in a managed area he cannot fill his second antlerless tag in a lottery zone? I thought you could only shoot one deer in a lottery area (regardless of weapon) and then use your other tags in either the managed or intensive harvest zones.

Please clarify.

Thanks,

WG

I was just going to say something about that. I sent an email to the DNR and THis is what i asked:

I hunt in a lottery zone, the book says that there is a 1 deer limit in a lottery zone,

I would like to know what is legal and what is not for the following scenarios.

1> I shoot a Doe in a Lottery zone with a bow, can i

tag it with my antlerless tag and still be able to shoot a

buck in a management or intesive harvest zone with my

either sex tag.

2> i shoot a buck in an intensive harvest or management

zone, am i still able to with a bow shoot a doe in the

lottery zone with my antlerless tag on my all season

license.

THis is the reply:

Yes to both 1 and 2. One deer in lottery areas, 1 buck unless you get drawn in the lottery or with archery, 2 in managed 5 in intensive areas. Good Luck. Kevin

Wrong

Deer shot in managed areas do not count against your one deer allowed in a lottery area. A hunter can tag TWO deer in managed areas, ONE deer in a lottery area without one effecting the other.

You cannot use a "bonus" tag in a lottery area. If you are bowhunting you need to use your main archery tag in a lottery area. You will not be able to tag a buck later in any other area with bow since your main tag has been used. Lcornice has mentioned this several times here on FM.

I just reread your point #2 about all season license. I do not know the correct answer there. I answered your point #1 based upon regular archery tag and bonus tags. Sorry for adding to any confusion.

The attempt with bag limits was to make them more discrete; hence, easier to follow. Again, they are:

lottery - 1

managed - 2

intensive - 5

Aggregate bag limit is 5 total, except for special conditions mentioned in the book (tb zone, early antlerless, metro), which are extras.

I thought that would be easier than 1 in a lottery unless you kill one in a managed than that counts towards your lottery, etc, etc.

As indicated, no bonus permits at all, ever, in lottery areas. Remember, the goal is to decrease the antlerless kill in those areas. Bowhunters should be pretty thankful they got a pass on doe harvest in lottery areas. They could have easily been put under the permit system (like firearm and muzzleloader). In fact, gun hunters are wondering why they weren't. I'll leave it at that ...

I May have not specified to you but i did when i wrote the email,

THis is with a all season license,

it is not a bonus tag it is considered a antlerless tag.

I made very clear when i wrote the email that he knew i was using a all season.

The rules is limit in each area.

So if i do shoot a deer in a managed i still have not shot one in a lottery.

THerefore i am able to use one of my remaining tags in a lottery zone.

Sorry if i didnt explain totally but i have a buddy who asked the same question and got the same response.

Here is my email with the response on top from THe DNR .

Yes to both 1 and 2. One deer in lottery areas, 1 buck unless you get drawn in the lottery or with archery, 2 in managed 5 in intensive areas. Good Luck. Kevin

I was recently talking with someone about the all season deer license and we had a disagreement on the wording in the regulations book.

I hunt in a lottery zone, the book says that there is a 1 deer limit in a lottery zone,

I would like to know what is legal and what is not for the following scenarios.

1> I shoot a Doe in a Lottery zone with a bow, can i

tag it with my antlerless tag and still be able to shoot a

buck in a management or intesive harvest zone with my

either sex tag.

2> i shoot a buck in an intensive harvest or management

zone, am i still able to with a bow shoot a doe in the

lottery zone with my antlerless tag on my all season

license.

After reading over and over the rules book i have come to

the understanding that what i have written above is legal.

If it is not could you please explain what is legal and

give me the page in the regulations that this is

explained.

I thank you in advance for you help with this matter. I

just want to be as legal as possible, because if i cant

understand it i am sure there are many others that also

cant.

Sincerly,

Greg Kiess

Yes on both accounts. Refer to my previous post regarding discrete bag limits for each area designation.

Thanks for the clarification of my response. Obviously we are all still struglling a bit with learning the new regs.

My answer to uspen went a bit above and beyond what he asked for and I got the lottery portion incorrect.

Okay so if I am understanding this right I can shoot a doe in a lottery zone, with my bow, tag it with an anterless tag, then go to a management zone and shoot a buck or a doe, with my bow, and tag it with my either sex tag?(I have the all season license)

Sorry but after reading the above posts I am still a little confused. I must be a little slow this morning grin.gif

      Up until about seven or eight years ago we were on Head-o-lakes bay. Minimal to no Rustys. Just the old school guys with the big blue boxer-mit claws. We were seeing rounded gobies.  We're on Frazer now. Wow! It's indescribable how many of those buggers there are. We've been trying to do our part by having frequent crawfish boils. Haven't made a dent but fun and tasty to try.

      will definitely be hunting turkeys again this year.  Love chasing these birds. Intend to go the archery route this year for the first time.  I have 2 kids that always are excited every year, until a couple of early mornings wain thier enthusiasm!  Figuring archery will allow me go on those days the kids dont want to wake up and I think I have something figured out.  Hope my skills will be up to the challenge.  
    • hookie
      I've had very good luck with them also. Always pick some up before heading out on the lake.

      Was thinking about heading up the shore for some open water fishing. Was just wondering if their is alot of ice floating around and if not wat kind of wind would make it difficult to fish from shore? Thanks

      There is a bunch of walleyes in Mille lacs and for the first time in a long time there is  bait fish for them to eat. Mille lacs is a son of a gun to fish if there is a bunch of bait for walleyes to eat. It’s still one the best walleye fisheries in the world.

      Wait until open water season.  It was ranked #1 in the country for bass for a reason.  Its also ranked #6 in the nation for muskies too if you have enough patience to target them. A recent review of Mille Lacs was conducted by an independent Biologist from Lake Erie and found that what the DNR has done with that lake has been fair, accurate, and appropriate in terms of regulation/harvest/restrictions.  Course, some business owners might say otherwise but the science and data has been found to be true.
    • gimruis
      I did not draw an early season permit.  I may be able to snag a surplus season B, otherwise it will be a later season for me this spring.  The birds are getting SMART.  They have refused to listen to any calls and they are decoy shy so I haven't been using calls or decoys for a while now.  Rather, I just sit there and wait on a travel route and hope they walk within range (sort of like deer hunting I guess).  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  Scouting is obviously important.  What has also really helped is the use of Winchester Longbeard XR ammo.  I have harvested turkeys out to 60 yards with it in recent years.
    • monstermoose78
      Found out we will have up to 17 guns up for grabs. Plus all the of other prizes. That does not include the 3 guns in the 3 gun raffle. The 3 gun raffle tickets must be purchased before the banquet, so let me know if you need some they are 5 bucks each.
