Bonus permits

Boyz in the Woods

How many deer can I harvest with my bow in Zone 3 in SE MN. The area I hunt is a Lottery area during the 3A firearm season and it's an Intensive harvest area during the 3B season. I have bonus permits but I don't know if I can use them.

I could be wrong, so dont take my word as right... if you are Archery hunting in an intensive harvest area.. I believe you can tag 1 with your Regular archery tag(either sex) and then may buy up to 4 more antlerless tags for a total of 5....

That's what I thought but the language in the laws made me wonder about the whole 3A vs. 3B area classification.

Happy Hunting!

almostthere!

Had the same question so I called the CO on Friday. She said as long as one of the gun season is either managed or intensive harvest, archery is either managed or intensive harvest. For instance, the area I intended to hunt is 342. It is lottery during 3A but intensive harvest during 3B, so it is intensive harvest for archery.

It's just too bad that 344 is a Lottery area. However, I have the All Season license and can take up to three deer from there. grin.gif

Thanks for the information. This is the first year I have had to worry about this. I arrowed a doe a couple of weeks ago and I would take another if I have the chance.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
