      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.

3 or maybe more depending on where you are and if you buy additional tags. Regardless only one can be a buck and the rest antlerless.

With the all season license you get 2 antlerless tags and 1 either or tag which can be used for your one legal buck OR for a third antlerless deer.

With that combination of tags on the all season license and assuming you hunt in the correct area for legal antlerless harvest, you can take two 2 antlerless and 1 buck OR 3 antlerless deer (again check your area for harvest of antlerless deer).

The restriction is that if you take 3 antlerless deer they cannot ALL come from within the same hunting season. What that means is its okay (for example) to take one doe by archery and shoot 2 more with your gun or muzzleloader, but you cannot take all 3 antlerless within the same season (all 3 taken by archery, or rifle, or muzzy). If you are going to take 3 deer within the same season (all archery, or all by firearm, or all by muzzleloader) with the all season license, at least 1 of them must be a legal buck. Otherwise you have to take at least one of the antlerless by a different method from the other two.

Hope I got that right and explained it clearly enough.

Longline

If you only have the All Season license and don't shoot your buck during the regular firearms season you can still fill all 3 tags but you cannot shoot 3 Doe in the Muzzleloader season or 3 doe in the Archery. From the way I read it you can shoot 3 doe but 1 would have to be with the opposite weapon. And out of the 3 tags only 1 can be a Buck. I also think it says that during the regular firearm season unless you applied and recieved a doe tag you can only shoot a buck during these 2 weekends.

Say I am rifle hunting in an area you can take does without applying for it.....can I shoot 2 does with my rifle and use the antlerless tags only and not waste the either buck/doe tag?

If you are in an Intensive harvest permit area then yes. I believe if you are in a Management permit area you could only use 1.

The regs also say to use the antlerless first b4 the either or tag to maximize your chances.

you can shoot a doe without a doe permit if you take it with bow and arrow even if gun season is open

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      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.

      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.
