license ?

3 posts in this topic

Lets say you have hunting ground in zone 1, area 184 and zone 2 area 209. Both of these areas have intensive harvest opportunities. I understand with a regular license I can only shoot a buck in one of the two zones. Does a multi zone and all season license allow me to use the intensive harvest permit in either area?

Also, my sons 1st license this year. Does he have the same restrictions as an adult. someone told me he can harvest 1 deer, regardless of what zone or area but must be in that season. Hopefully you understood all this. I have read the books and cant seem to find info. Thanks. To summerize, I need the abilty to shoot a buck in either zone with the ability to use a intensive harvest permit in either area.

all season license is the multizone with the addition of archery and muzzleloader. all three licenses are statewide, wherever there is an open season. however, intensive harvest permits are valid in any zone only where they may be used. some zones dropped to managed zones, where only two deer can be taken, and others are lottery areas, where you would had to have applied for an anterless permit to shoot a doe. the map at www.dnr.state.mn.us/hunting/deer/index.html shows what all zones are Yes, you can use the multizone and all season to purchase intensive harvest, as the intensive harvest isn't zone specific

The $26 dollar zone license has always been that way and it won't change. If you want to hunt 2 (or more) zones, you'll need either a multi-zone buck or all-season license. If you have killing options in intensive deer areas (looks like you do), I'd suggest the all-season because it comes with 3 tags. The multi-zone is buck only, one tag. Some might argue it's obsolete and should be eliminated smile.gif

So, I'd strongly suggest you not buy a zone 1 license and hunt zone 2 because you'd be hunting without a valid license. That would be a lot more expensive than just buying an all-season license.

I hope that clears it up.

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
