Bow and rifle hunting question

Recommended Posts

bigyooper

I am wondering, this is the first year that I will bow and rifle hunt in MN. If I shoot a buck with my bow, can I still shoot a buck with my rifle?

nope. Only one antlered deer a year. You can shoot up to six anterless ones, if you hit all the right zones and seasons.

What I do is take a nice tender yearling doe for the freezer and spend the rest of the time looking for a trophy, the more of them small bucks you let go the better chance of getting a big one later.

If you are party hunting, u can use their buck tag.

Plus it matters what type of zone you are hunting in. Lottery zone, you can shoot only one deer, buck or doe (if you have a doe permit), no matter what type of weapon you use. Managed zone the limit is 2 deer. Intensive zone, limit is 5 deer.

Sorry to be picky, but if we all talk alike their might be less confusion. It is ZONES 1, 2, 3A, 3B, 4A, and 4B. It is a Lottery AREA(example 426), or a Managed AREA(example 461), or an Intensive AREA.

I have had many conversations with fellow hunters where the first thing we have to do is clarify what is "ZONE" and what is "AREA."

Good Luck!

Just check the reg book. Find out what area you will be hunting. It will have all the answers for you. If you are still unsure... call you local CO. As far as your buck question, the answer is you can only take one antlered deer per year.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
