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 ?

page 68 in regulations

Managed deer areas: The bag limit for managed deer areas is two

deer, except all-season license holders and hunters tagging deer with both

their archery and firearms license may take three deer.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
