      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

intensive harvest permits

Recommended Posts

say_der

When do I have to buy an intensive harvest permit for muzzleloader season? I know I obviously need it before I take the deer. I'm just wondering because if I take a buck on the first day (I know, wishful thinking), I've got a couple weeks left to go look for a doe too. Do I need the IHP before I take the first deer? Or can I buy it after using my regular ML tag?

Thanks.

There is no waiting period on the intensive harvest tag, so you can buy it anytime before you go out for a doe.

Yeah, but I think I figured out my question - my regular muzzleloader tag needs to be valid in order to purchase an intensive harvest permit. I can't fill that tag and then go get another intensive harvest one. I need to buy both and then I can use them in the order I chose.

Any one correct me if I'm wrong here.

Thanks again.

I think you are mistaken. You can buy an IHP anytime during the muzzleloader season as long as you have a muzzleloader license regardless of whether you have filled it or not. You can shoot your buck and while you are registering it, purchase an IHP. You could even purchase a second IHP while you are registering the first IHP, an so on (up to 4 times I think). It's a great system if you like venison!

The Intensive Harvest Permit rub is...

If you shoot a doe as your first deer and haven't bought one, you need to tag it with your regular license. You can go buy up to 4 intensive harvest permits after that, but deer tagged with those MUST be antlerless. Therefore, be prepared to let the biggest buck of your life walk by. OF course, if you hunt in a bigger party, this is likely a moot point.

I bought an intensive harvest permit and tagged a doe with it. I still have my regular and can shoot either. It's the only way I could figure I'd still want to hunt.

say_der,
Sounds like you expect to do well with the
smoke poles. smile.gif
We have done this for several years now. It
is sometimes hard to come up with a buck,
but I always buy an IHP because we see and
shoot several does each season. My Buck tag
from my all season permit goes unused but my
freezer is always full of venison.

Where 'bouts there do you hunt? We have had
excellent late season success near hinckley. smile.gif

OK, I guess I'll just have to try it. If I can only take the one deer that's fine too. I do really enjoy venison and I'm hoping to get my wife liking it more too.

I go in zone 411.

I really like the ML season because it's not as busy. I've had better luck bowhunting, but I hadn't had enough shooting time this past summer to buy a tag in September. So I'll take out the soot belcher and hopefully connect on a couple.

Hoyter it correct. You may fill your regular ML tag and then go and purchase an IH permit. You can purchase up to 4 IH permits (making sure you are in a IH area of course). These may be purchased in any combination of 1 at a time, 2, all 4, etc. Cost for them is I believe $14.00/permit. I just picked up another one for up North this weekend.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
