Archery zones?

Recommended Posts

This will be my first year bowhunting and was wondering before i go to get my licences if you have to have a zone selected like you would for firearms?

I haven't read the regs for this year, but assuming no changes Archery is essentially a statewide season with no zones. Only exception I recall is that the season closes a couple weeks earlier on the North Shore than in the rest of the state to protect deer that yard up. Read the regs to be sure.

Also, there are some archery-only hunts in State Parks and similar areas typically closed to hunting that may interest you, but you need to apply for them. Again, read the regs. And good luck this year.

The only think that really matters is in some areas you can get tags for additional does, but you can buy those later (as you need another one to continue hunting). They're good with any bow license as long as you're in one of the permit areas they're good for.

Being a new archery hunter, you just need to realize if you shoot a buck with your bow you can not tag a buck gun hunting.

yea,I am a little confused with the new regs and i heard the new license you can get the archery and firearms but what your saying is you can only tag one buck and one doe?..im only 15 so i would get the youth archery tag so is that the same with youth?

The new regs allow you to harvest a deer on both your regular Archery tag and one on your gun tag but only one can be a buck. Basically you can shoot one deer for each tag you have in your pocket as long as you only shoot one buck. This is different from years past in that you could only tag one deer on a regular Archery or regular Firearms tag. Esentially in years past if you wanted to shoot 2 deer you needed 3 tags -1 Regular Archery - 1 Regular Gun - and one additional antlerless tag (one of the regular tags became voided if you filled a regular archery or gun tag with any deer).

It got complicated as my explination did. Now you need only to purchase Reg Archery and Reg gun tag to shoot 2 deer.

Personally I am going to get the All-Season License. I won't have to worry about all hte different license combinations, get 2 tags (1 either or and one antlerless)and I can hunt muzzleloader too.

That's all I do is buy the All-Season License & then I buy Management Tags or whatever they're called currently and keep buying them as I fill them, until the season's over or I've filled all the ones I can.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
