Bow and rifle hunting question

7 posts in this topic

I am wondering, this is the first year that I will bow and rifle hunt in MN. If I shoot a buck with my bow, can I still shoot a buck with my rifle?

nope. Only one antlered deer a year. You can shoot up to six anterless ones, if you hit all the right zones and seasons.

What I do is take a nice tender yearling doe for the freezer and spend the rest of the time looking for a trophy, the more of them small bucks you let go the better chance of getting a big one later.

If you are party hunting, u can use their buck tag.

Plus it matters what type of zone you are hunting in. Lottery zone, you can shoot only one deer, buck or doe (if you have a doe permit), no matter what type of weapon you use. Managed zone the limit is 2 deer. Intensive zone, limit is 5 deer.

Sorry to be picky, but if we all talk alike their might be less confusion. It is ZONES 1, 2, 3A, 3B, 4A, and 4B. It is a Lottery AREA(example 426), or a Managed AREA(example 461), or an Intensive AREA.

I have had many conversations with fellow hunters where the first thing we have to do is clarify what is "ZONE" and what is "AREA."

Good Luck!

Just check the reg book. Find out what area you will be hunting. It will have all the answers for you. If you are still unsure... call you local CO. As far as your buck question, the answer is you can only take one antlered deer per year.

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.
