Early season deer

Recommended Posts

ruster

I keep getting conflicting info on the early season from license sellers. My question is: Do the early season tags count against the bag limit of 5 deer total in an intensive area? One place says yes, the other says no they are seperate and do not count against the bag limit of 5. Hopefully lcornice will clarify.

Early season Doe tags are seperate from your regular season firearms license, if your in a Intense harvest it does not go against the doe tags for regular firearms season,

Remember to not try and fill early season doe tags left over during the regular firearms season also.

I'll quote by reading a passage from the Book of Regulations, page 66 ... (sorry, couldn't resist)

Exceptions to the 5 deer limit are:

- the early antlerless season where two additional deer may be taken.

So no, it doesn't count towards your total 5. There's also a bunch of information on the early season here: 2007 DNR Early Antlerless Information.

Good luck to everyone and be safe. I'll be up in Roseau county working and partaking in the season myself.

I found basically the same info in the FAQ part of the regs:

Q: How many deer can I legally tag per year?

A: During the regular seasons, up to 5 deer can be taken per year. Additionally, landowners can tag one deer in certain deer areas and 2 deer can be taken during the early antlerless season.

So you can take 5 deer with the All-Season and bonus permits...and an extra 2 if you get the early season. From what I understand, the early season deer tagged do not count towards the 5 you are allowed to tag during regular seasons.

Thanks Lcornice, I knew you'd have the answer. I will inform the local bait shop to make sure they are putting out the correct info.

Sounds good. If they have web access, I'd send them the link I posted. It should answer the majority of questions that come up.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      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!
