Col. Hoggiebun

I have a qouta tag an a non qouta an if I'm reading the regs rigbt I can fill both tags. It clearly stats 1bear In qouta an 1 bear in nonqouta. So both tags can be filled. Am I right? Ivenfled my no qouta tag last night with a respectable 250 big headed dry sow. Gona eat yum yum tonight. But nownwith cooler temps com ing the bear sre gona be feeding. Get ready boys it coming.

That is the way I read it also. You can fill both tags.

I would call the dnr headquarters and ask just to be sure. I would hate to see someone picked up for poaching

Reading the reg's it clearly states one bear in lottery zone and one in the non quota zone.

Look on the DNR website and there is an update in big red letters that was dated back in June, I believe, and it states only one bear per hunter per year. A buddy and I had a discussion on this while at bear camp and someone at the DNR messed up big time!! So instead of printing out all new regualtions they just made the change in the seperate bear regualtions and on the website.

Whitewolf is correct.

The link below is to the online version of the bear regs. About half way down on page 95 you'll see the correction that stats one bear per hunter state wide.

Page 2 of the bear reg's state it is only one bear in non-quota are. The bag limit used to be 2 bears in that area. Look at the bag limit description on page 4 of the bear reg's.

Minnesota Hunting Regulations confusing? Really? Hard to believe. crazy

I read everything referenced above and I still can't tell for certain what the answer is, and I fear that a call to the DNR headquarters might not reveal the true answer either. This really shouldn't be THIS complicated.

I saw what you are talking about on page 4 of the bear regs before I went back to the main Hunting Regs book. The main Hunting Regs book included incorrect information when it was first released. The incorrect info has since been crossed out and corrected to read one bear per hunter state wide.

Page 4 of the Bear regs is poorly worded but I think it is trying to say you are allowed one bear regardless of hunting quota or non-quota.

I just emailed the DNR for clarification.

On the main regulation page at the DNR website here: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/regulations/hunting/index.html

It says:

Updates as of 7/26/2013

Bear season - one bear per hunter statewide, p. 95

with a link to the full hunting regs here: http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulat...emode=bookmarks

The bear regs on the DNR website ( http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/recreation/hunting/bear/bear_regs.pdf ) in my opinion state that we are allowed one quota bear AND one no-quota bear.

Just heard back from the DNR. Here is their response:

Quote:
The bag limit is one with a quota (lottery) license and one with a no quota area license. It used to be one in a lottery and 2 in a no-quota area. It’s on page 4 of the bear regulations: http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/recreation/hunting/bear/bear_regs.pdf Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We’ll have it fixed soon.

I filled my quota tag opening night. I emailed the dnr roughly 5 days ago asking them if i can now buy a no quota tag and they said I can harvest one in the quota zone and one in the no quota zone.

I will be putting out a bait in the no quota zone tomorrow.

So even the update in the regular hunting regs is also incorrect? Crazy crazy

Sounds like it was corrected incorrectly, go figure.

Well, at least they owned up to it. Gotta give em' a little credit for that. I still think these folks are doing the best they can, given what they have to work with. Gotta be frustrating for them as well.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
    • Wanderer
      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray 
    • monstermoose78
      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!
