Question?

7 posts in this topic

I slug hunt the 3B season and a couple of my friends are slug hunting this weekend. I would like to bowhunt the same property as them this weekend. I know I can't party hunt with them because I will be using a bow and they will be using gun. My question is can I even ride in the vehicle to our hunting spot with them or would that be considered party hunting, even though I won't be participating in their hunt?

yes you can ride in the same vehicle. I believe you can even camp with them in the same camp so long as there is no intention to tag one another's deer as per allowed with the party hunting regulations.

I hunt 3B also, can't wait until 3A is over, hopefully the 7 day cool down will get the deer back to normal. I'd like to get another shot at a buck. To the question, You can hunt with your friends, you just can't share tags thats all. I.E. They can't shoot a deer with a firearm and use your archery tag or vice versa. Basically, your not considered one of their party. You would need another bow hunter and would then be considered a 2nd party, then the two of you could share tags. Happy hunting, good luck, hope that helps.

Just a side question, I don't even know if I should ask, it may cause more confusion than it is worth. I know you cannot party hunt with different weapons and cross tag as stated before.

But, What if you have an All-Season license where you can hunt any season (except 3B) and can party hunt. Do you and the party have to use the same weapons to tag the deer even though the tag can be used during any open season excluding 3B?

I guess the easy answer is if you shoot it, tag it. And if you are going to party hunt use the same type of weapon as everyone else in the party. Is it even considered party hunting if you do not use the same weapon?

no matter what license you need to use the same weapon (all using guns or all using bows) as the people you are hunting with to be considered party hunting.....

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
