ZONE 3B

Recommended Posts

EXTREME

What is the scoop with Zone 3B? I was reading in the regs that a All-Season license is not good in that Zone. Why? Can you still hunt down there if you buy another license? Can someone out there let me know. I was thinking of going with a friend down there and hate to be breaking the law. Thanks

If you bought an all season license, you are done in 3B. I believe you could still Archery hunt it if you haven't used your license. Many of the areas down here are either Management or Intensive harvest so you could still shoot a deer with your bow. I think it has to do with the number of deer hunters in the woods at one time.

It's never been legal to hunt the 3B firearm season with an all-season license (or a multi-zone buck for that matter). The reason is it's the only open deer season and there's stiff resistence from landowners and 3B hunters to allowing the all-season license. The general feeling is there would be an influx of hunters if it were allowed since it is the only area still open.

So can I still bowhunt during the 3B firearms dates with an all season license?

3B is a firearm designation and does not pertain to archery. So long as you abide by the rules for archery you can hunt concurrent with the 3B firearms season. The only difference is you'll have to wear blaze orange because there's a gun season open.

So I guess the general question is: I have and all season license...haven't tagged anything yet...can I bowhunt in zone 3B? Icornice let me know...you seem to know all the regulations. Thanks guys.

I wish they would have an all season license available for people who hunt 3B and ONLY 3B. Just make it so the only gun seasons on the license are 3B and muzzleloader. It doesn't seem too unreasonable to make that available for those with land access issues in zone 3. Anybody see why this wouldn't work?

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
