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

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.
