I could'nt get to the larger map that shows the lottery areas, I see they are listed, just wondering if any of the boundaries have changed. My area 2 years ago was 168, last year it was 169 and I see 169 is lottery, wondering if it is the same area as last year.

The wording for "Managed Deer Areas", which includes me in 347, is a little confusing at first glance.

In Managed Deer Areas we can take one deer of either sex (assuming an adult buck meets the antler point requirements in Zone 3) without needing to apply for an antlerless permit. Then, apparently there may be additional antlerless permits available in Managed Deer Areas, if I am reading that right.

This is a new "hunters choice" category isn't it? I only remember intensive, managed, and lottery before. I like that additional category for recovering areas.

It does seem that we generally got more liberal with our limits across the state. My main area is stll lotto, but number of permits went from 300 to 900. My secondary area was managed, now is intensive. My up north areas were lotto, are now hunter choice. And the back-up back-up areas went from lotto to managed, and managed to intensive.

Anybody's area become more restrictive? Besides loosing the early-antlerless season that is.

ASSUMING you are only hunting firearms season and only area 347; You can tag two deer, only one may be an APR buck. You will want to buy (over the counter, no lottery) one bonus tag and use that on your first antlerless deer. Your either/or can than be saved for your buck, or used on doe if you'd like.

Different advice if you are hunting multiple seasons or areas.

I misread the regs, 169 is one of the new hunters choice areas, can shoot 1 deer of either sex, basically the same as last year, I thought it might go to the lotto again.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
