party hunting question

Recommended Posts

Ok me and my dad where having this discussion this weekend while fishing. My brother in law is going to bow hunt until our slug season (3b). He is bow hunting in a lottery area and our slug area is also a lottery area. If he shoots a deer with his bow can he still party hunt with us? I know he would not be able to tag a deer while slug hunting with us, but can he hunt? He cannot shoot a buck while hunting with us, since the new law this year, but if a doe comes by him can he shoot it and I can put my tag on it, since we would all be afield party hunting or would he have needed to put in for the lottery in order to shoot one and have me tag the doe if I was successful in the lottery? Or is he done hunting all together?

I was wondering if I would lose somebody on the wording sorry. He is bow hunting until our slug season. Once that gets here he will trade the bow in for a slug gun and hunt with us. As for him not being able to take a buck during slug season that was only if he shoots a deer with his bow before we go slug hunting.

PARTY HUNTING

• A “party” is defined as any group of two or more licensed deer hunters

who are all afield; hunting together at the same time; and all

using firearms (including muzzleloaders) or all using archery.

• A mixed group of firearms and archery hunters is considered two

separate parties.

• Crossbow hunters may not party hunt with firearms hunters.

• Crossbow hunters may party hunt with archery hunters if they

possess an archery license with a crossbow disability permit.

• Any member of a party meeting this definition may kill a deer for any

other member of the party who has an unused tag valid for that deer.

• Some restrictions apply to 300 series deer permits. See page 78.

from page 78....

Buck Cross-Tagging

This is most commonly referred to as party hunting. The intent of this

regulation is not to break up the hunting party or force hunters to leave the

field once they are successful. This regulation simply requires the hunter to

shoot and tag their own antlered buck. Specifically,

• A person cannot take and tag an antlered buck for another member of

their party. This applies to all hunters, license types, and seasons.

• It remains legal to take and tag antlerless deer for members of the

party. This is a population management strategy and may lead to slight

increases in antlerless deer harvest.

• Party members may not kill an antlerless deer in a lottery deer area

for: 1) a member of the party who is a resident under age 18; or 2) a

disabled person authorized to take antlerless deer under a permit to

shoot from a motor vehicle.

• Party members may not kill an antlerless deer for a youth in limited

youth-only areas.

So, yes, he can purchase a license and hunt with you, and shoot a doe and you can tag it, as long as you're not under 18 or hunting with a disablity permit...

thanks fox, I thought that he would be able to, but just was not sure with pertaining to the doe permit deal. Now I know.

ok I see now, you should be fine to party hunt then.

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
