license question

2 posts in this topic

Maybe this has been answered already i just havnt found it. My question is - I hunt archery and i hunt the gun season in a "managed area". Which means i can tag a deer with my bow and gun this year but only one buck may be taken. Now if i was to hunt with just the bow i could get 2 deer using a bonus license . And if i was to hunt with just the gun same thing , provided only one buck being harvested.

Now here is the confusing part if i hunt with bow and gun ?

The laws say i can fill both my archery and gun license this year, well to me that means i can treat each license seperate provided only one buck being tagged between the two.

1) So does that mean i can get 2 deer with the bow and 2 deer with the gun . only 1 being a buck

2) Get 2 deer with gun and 1 with bow . vice versa

only 1 being a buck

3) OR am i only allowed 2 deer this year . no matter what

IM already confused thinking about it ! HOW MANY DEER CAN I GET ?

      I am looking at a new portable shelter this year. It would be ideal to get one that fits 3-4 people so I can take my whole family out. I am looking at the clam x400. My concern is the weight. Does anybody have experience lifting this unit up in the back of a truck or dragging it around or to move from spot to spot?  Any suggestions of other shelters to look at would be great. Thanks!

      Just wondering what you guys prefer for fishing fall walleyes down here in southern mn. I know the creek and redtail chubs work great on the northern mn lakes during the fall months but wasnt quite sure if our lakes responded the same down here or if a smaller profile would be the way to go.
