      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

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

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.
    • Reel_Magic
      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update
    • Rancid Crabtree
      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there. 
    • gimruis
      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious
