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.....

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.
