Did I read the regs correctly that Zone 170 (primarily Grand Rapids area) is intensive harvest this year? Does that mean that there will be extra bonus tags...I mean more than 1...up to 4? Just wondering if anybody else noticed this. PS last year zone 170 was a Manangement area...not intensive harvest...I think???

Hey Kyle,

Yep that's my understanding too. That's what a local CO had told my dad week or 2 ago. As much as we like venison, we're happy to have 2 in the freezer when the deer season is done. Anymore than that would take up the room designated for fish, grouse, and ducks! grin.gif

I think an entire deer season of does only would greatly help reduce the deer herd #'s, but the state is too greedy when it comes to license fees and too many people would whine about not being able to shoot a spike or fork! And to think these are the same people who never shoot or see a big buck for some reason? crazy.gif

I'd love to see a point restriction come into play or even an "earn a buck" system where you have to shoot a doe or 2 before you can use a buck tag. Or how about drawing a buck tag?

I think when you had to apply for a anterless permit and you got one you should have had to take a anterless deer, and not be able to take a buck.That would of helped thin the herd some time ago.

I wish they would put some sort of antler restrictions on too except for kids. But you and I know it will never happen! Oh well, I do however think that the message is slowly getting accross. You seem to see way more 2 year old or older bucks getting processed than the spikes and forks these days. Kind of nice to see.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
