That is the way I read it also. You can fill both tags.

I would call the dnr headquarters and ask just to be sure. I would hate to see someone picked up for poaching

Reading the reg's it clearly states one bear in lottery zone and one in the non quota zone.

Look on the DNR website and there is an update in big red letters that was dated back in June, I believe, and it states only one bear per hunter per year. A buddy and I had a discussion on this while at bear camp and someone at the DNR messed up big time!! So instead of printing out all new regualtions they just made the change in the seperate bear regualtions and on the website.

Whitewolf is correct.

The link below is to the online version of the bear regs. About half way down on page 95 you'll see the correction that stats one bear per hunter state wide.

Page 2 of the bear reg's state it is only one bear in non-quota are. The bag limit used to be 2 bears in that area. Look at the bag limit description on page 4 of the bear reg's.

Minnesota Hunting Regulations confusing? Really? Hard to believe. crazy

I read everything referenced above and I still can't tell for certain what the answer is, and I fear that a call to the DNR headquarters might not reveal the true answer either. This really shouldn't be THIS complicated.

I saw what you are talking about on page 4 of the bear regs before I went back to the main Hunting Regs book. The main Hunting Regs book included incorrect information when it was first released. The incorrect info has since been crossed out and corrected to read one bear per hunter state wide.

Page 4 of the Bear regs is poorly worded but I think it is trying to say you are allowed one bear regardless of hunting quota or non-quota.

I just emailed the DNR for clarification.

On the main regulation page at the DNR website here: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/regulations/hunting/index.html

It says:

Updates as of 7/26/2013

Bear season - one bear per hunter statewide, p. 95

with a link to the full hunting regs here: http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulat...emode=bookmarks

The bear regs on the DNR website ( http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/recreation/hunting/bear/bear_regs.pdf ) in my opinion state that we are allowed one quota bear AND one no-quota bear.

Just heard back from the DNR. Here is their response:

Quote:
The bag limit is one with a quota (lottery) license and one with a no quota area license. It used to be one in a lottery and 2 in a no-quota area. It’s on page 4 of the bear regulations: http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/recreation/hunting/bear/bear_regs.pdf Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We’ll have it fixed soon.

I filled my quota tag opening night. I emailed the dnr roughly 5 days ago asking them if i can now buy a no quota tag and they said I can harvest one in the quota zone and one in the no quota zone.

I will be putting out a bait in the no quota zone tomorrow.

So even the update in the regular hunting regs is also incorrect? Crazy crazy

Well, at least they owned up to it. Gotta give em' a little credit for that. I still think these folks are doing the best they can, given what they have to work with. Gotta be frustrating for them as well.

      Set up deeper on rock reef for the rest of the weekend and only managed one fish (26" eye), missed a couple others. We wanted to stay deeper due to all the traffic on the lake. We did enjoy a good time at Fishing for Ducks, we saw a nice walleye pulled through the ice but it only measured 27.5". Talk about a bummer for that guy!

      Roads to the islands always need to be taken very cautious and I would encourage going with someone who knows the area..  I believe they were shutting down the highway H extension due to this recent weather we just got?  Plenty of fish and opportune situtations in the bay.

      Another crazy busy weekend is in the books. I really enjoy giving out my fishing/what's happening on the lake reports but finding the time has been tough. To say its a grind is a understatement.
       I can tell you again as the season winds down I'm never ready for it to end, as I truly love being out there in my trucks, moving houses, plowing the  hillmen highway, giving advise, helping other fishermen when they do something silly, Driving into a snow bank, dropping there gun down a hole or any other important object like there keys. Every year all the workers seem to get a little grumpy as fighting mother nature, going from sun up to sunset takes a toll physically and mentally. It also seems I ruffle a few feathers every year and its never my intent  so I have to chalk it up as a long season. If I stepped on anyone's toes it sure was not planned or intended as all most every day plan a turns to plan b and c. Mother nature dictates where I go sometimes as well as any plowed roads that can make our job easier. The cookie shuffle worked very well this year as I tell everyone that gets lost in my maze of trails. I'm not a road engineer.
       Man did we get overwhelmed with wheel house's this past weekend, any fish coming from southwest had to go threw a gauntlet of hooks to find my fishermen.
       I had two wheel house's  that I set up at the end of the hillmens highway and was surprised how bad they did. I guess I should of went south not east? The nw road has gotten to much to maintain, there's one lone house out that way that will need a new trail made .
       Its all started Thursday as jonnny boy and I prepped for the weekend with Joe, Zack, Adam and   his crew arriving fro florida. Zacks birthday wish was fishing red lake, they had a blast. They went to westwind where they enjoyed a fish fry, plus they took home a few fish with a couple even getting a ride in florida fish house as we moved a small distance to put it on fresh ice for there last night sunday. Last year when they came we landed on the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie mother load? I think  they had dreams for a year of repeating that. Every year is different and again this year was no exception.
       Ben who proposed in old Minnesota to Shawna 8 years ago were in old Minnesota with there two adorable kids. Louie the fishing machine and his little sister Willa plus there friend Nelli.
       They had a blast also with Shawna getting a elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie to boot. They also managed to take home a nice batch of upper red lake walleyes.
       Hunter and his two buddies were in north Dakota. It was slow but they also managed to take home a batch of fish.
       Charlie and Rizzo were in montana , They were very serious about there fishing and went home with there 8.
      Jeromy and his gal were in north Carolina Saturday, sunday . They also managed to get there 8.
       Sunday was a very tough day as we had all 5 houses re rented. I was planning on moving all of them so we battled mother nature the whole time as a ne wind with 2 inches of snow made it impossible to see. At one point I was getting sea sick as I struggled to see, With the sky, horizon and the lake all the same color. wow what a struggle.
       It took us  7 1/2 hours but we got every thing cleaned, moved.
       Mother nature has given us another bout of snow so tomorrow I will let every one know how the houses did the last two days as its time to check the fluids and fire up the fleet

      Figured I should report back... I fished prime time on Saturday morning and Saturday evening. No action. It didn't help that I forgot to grab the vexilar on the first outing, but it didn't help to have it on the second outing either! ha! Marked a few but couldn't get them to bite. Used a GPS chip to punch some holes over structure, but when I came back with the vexilar, they weren't quite as deep as I hoped. Thanks for the pointers BrianF

      Around this time last year this thread was started by @Royal_Dutchman. I got my trip planned for April but by the look of the extended forecast it's not looking to promising, especially compared to where it was at last year on Feb 23rd. 
    • osok
      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck. 
    • Wanderer
      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!
    • Borch
      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.
