Clarify All Season license ?

Recommended Posts

ozzie

I know this may have been asked but with the all season license can I shoot a buck (rifle/shotgun season) most anywhere (except 3B) in the state? I understand the doe part but I read the DNR regs and am confused as to the buck portion for this season.

Yes, anywhere & any time the season is open in that area, with any weapon legal for that season.

But you may still only take 1 buck total for the year and not 1 buck for each season. The other two tags you receive with the all season license are for antlerless deer only.

Thanks that is what I thought.....I also picked up a regs book on lunch break and found my answer. I was confused after reading something on the DNR website.

just one more question reguarding all season license. If I used both anterless tags and my eithr sex tag on a buck last weekend in a managed area can I use a bonus permit in that same area to take a another doe. thanks for the info in advance.

Elwood I'm not 100% sure of my answer here so maybe best check for another answer or read the regs youself but I believe in a managed area if you taken 3 deer by firearm or combination of weapons(2 antlerless and 1 buck) you are done hunting that area. There is no mention in the regs about an all season license holder having the ability to by bonus tags for additional deer in managed areas. It says you may take 3 deer. Whereas for hunters in intensive areas the regs say an all season license holder can purchase bonus tags for additional deer up to a maximum of 5. So it seems to me 3 is the limit from a managed area.

MANAGED DEER AREAS

The number and type of deer you can kill in managed deer areas varies by license type. Below is a summary of the licenses and what type of deer may be harvested:

• All-season deer - may take up to three deer in managed deer areas during the firearm season but only two can be antlerless. Hunters can tag an antlerless deer with their either-sex tag but are advised to use their antlerless-only tags first. All-season hunters do not need to purchase bonus permits for use in managed areas because the license

now includes a third tag.

INTENSIVE DEER AREAS

Intensive deer areas have a bag limit of 5 deer total. Below is a summary of the licenses and what type of deer may be harvested:

All-season deer - may take up to three deer with that license during the firearm season but only two can be antlerless. Hunters can tag an antlerless deer with their either-sex tag but are advised to use their antlerless-only tags first. All-season hunters can purchase bonus permits and the bag limit in intensive areas is five deer.

So it seems to me if you want to keep hunting you would have to buy a bonus tag and hunt in an intensive deer area as you limit of 3 in a managed area has been reached.

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger.
