Bonus permits

5 posts in this topic

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!

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.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
