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.

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.

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
