10 posts in this topic

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.

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

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...
