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.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
