Question on the laws.

3 posts in this topic

Ok so the DNR tells me I will get a tag this year because my pref. points are high enough to get one. So when (if) I get one. This will be the reg. tag not just the archery one, can a person bring a shotgun and a bow out to the blind and shoot a bird with either depending on the range? Thanks for any info ahead of time.

Yes. With a regular tag you can use any LEGAL weapon of your choice to take your turkey. Be it a bow, regular shotgun,or muzzle loading shotgun. You can take both a bow and a shotgun out with you.

Yes you can. My advice, leave your shotgun at home/camp. I drew a tag for the third time last year. My first year was a learning experience. Heard birds, saw some, no opportunity. Second year, shot one with my shotgun. Third year, goal was to shoot one with my bow. I'm glad I didn't carry a shotgun. Patience, and it payed off. If I would have had a shotgun in my blind I probably wouldn't have been as patient. I shot a nice Tom at about 35 yds. It was the most "rewarding" hunt that I've ever been on. My two cents. Take it for what it's worth.

good luck

      Yes the Navonics phone app is as accurate as more expensive ones and you don't need to spend the extra $$ on another unit!  The app costs under $10!!

      Hopefully things will start to happen soon.  The next 15 days of overnight lows are starting to stay below freezing. Maybe a few test holes will have to happen for me next week!!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Looks like we might have walkable ice in 2 weeks
