Early season deer

6 posts in this topic

I keep getting conflicting info on the early season from license sellers. My question is: Do the early season tags count against the bag limit of 5 deer total in an intensive area? One place says yes, the other says no they are seperate and do not count against the bag limit of 5. Hopefully lcornice will clarify.

Early season Doe tags are seperate from your regular season firearms license, if your in a Intense harvest it does not go against the doe tags for regular firearms season,

Remember to not try and fill early season doe tags left over during the regular firearms season also.

I'll quote by reading a passage from the Book of Regulations, page 66 ... (sorry, couldn't resist)

Exceptions to the 5 deer limit are:

- the early antlerless season where two additional deer may be taken.

So no, it doesn't count towards your total 5. There's also a bunch of information on the early season here: 2007 DNR Early Antlerless Information.

Good luck to everyone and be safe. I'll be up in Roseau county working and partaking in the season myself.

I found basically the same info in the FAQ part of the regs:

Q: How many deer can I legally tag per year?

A: During the regular seasons, up to 5 deer can be taken per year. Additionally, landowners can tag one deer in certain deer areas and 2 deer can be taken during the early antlerless season.

So you can take 5 deer with the All-Season and bonus permits...and an extra 2 if you get the early season. From what I understand, the early season deer tagged do not count towards the 5 you are allowed to tag during regular seasons.

Thanks Lcornice, I knew you'd have the answer. I will inform the local bait shop to make sure they are putting out the correct info.

Sounds good. If they have web access, I'd send them the link I posted. It should answer the majority of questions that come up.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
