Deer hunting zone questions

Recommended Posts

walleyeking19

Okay I think I understand this nut I wanna run this by you guys too to double check. I bow hunt in a managed zone but gun hunt in a hunters choice zone. So can I shoot a doe with my bow early in the year in the managed zone and still shoot a buck or doe with my gun in hunters choice? I understand I can only shoot one buck all season. Thanks for the help!

Why do you say no? That is perfectly legal, just has to buy a bonus tag to take the second doe

Yep all the scenarios above were legal as long as the management tag was used in the management zone. You would also have to do it with two different method tags like firearms and archery as was mentioned in the scenario above.

The way I understand it is statewide we all get 1 deer total/ year, regardless of license type.

Then you can take 1 bonus doe in a management zone and four bonus does in an intensive harvest zone, and unlimited does in the metro.

How can tracker x-2 take 2 does in a manged zone, then take a 3rd deer in the Hunters Choice zone?

That would be 3 total deer, one too many.

Nope your reading it wrong. A person can take 2 does in a management zone, say a buck in a hunters choice or lottery area, and 2 more does in an intensive area. You cannot take more than 4 does and 1 buck per calendar year. You can go to the metro area in unlimited zone and shoot more does.

I don't think so. If you go shoot 2 deer in a Management zone, then you have 2 deer in your total bag limit. You can't turn around and go get a 3rd deer in a Hunters Choice zone when your bag limit for that zone is 1. You'd only be able to harvest remaining deer from Intensive and Unlimited zones.

So if you shoot a deer in a Hunters Choice area, that's your 1 deer for that zone, then your bag limit in a Managed zone is 2, so you can only get one more deer to be limited out in that zone.

Or, I'm on something... wink

Your on something then... ha ha. It is perfectly lega what i describedl. 2 deer total in a management zone, 1 deer in a hunter choice, 5 in an intensive. You can hunt all zones all seasons but cannot take more than 5 deer total and 1 can only be a buck. The only way a deer counts from one zone to the other is if its a buck

Okay then. wink

Doesn't really matter to me anyway. It's all Lotto and H.C. up here in the Great White North. I get one deer this year, if I'm even lucky enough to see one to shoot at.

You're on something. The two deer taken in Managed doesn't have anything to do with Lotto/HC. A person could use two bonus permits on antlerless in a Managed area, then use their main tag on any deer in any non-Managed area. Can do it all with one weapon, too.

Jameson, I am not sure about using 2 management tags in a managed area, I thought they changed that, if I am wrong, I apologize for the misinformation. I will have to reread the regs again.

Quote:
Managed Deer Areas—The bag limit for managed deer areas is two deer and hunters can use any combination of licenses and bonus permits to tag both deer.

I believe I stand corrected. Remember, the total statewide bag limit is 5 deer. Guess your lottery and either sex area are the only places where you cannot use a bonus tag. Makes it easier.

Except in areas with early antler less seasons. The deer shot in early antler less seasons don't count towards your overall bag limit, so 5 extra deer can be taken in those areas. Free landowner tags also don't count towards your bag limit, so there's an extra deer as well.

If you remember a few years back it was the way you thought it is. Lcornice (and myself) thought otherwise and was wrong. The following year it then got changed/clarified so that we can now use two bonus tags in a Managed area. Not sure if it's still in the searchable archives here or not?

I thought it was the other way around. I thought originally you could use the management tags and the DNR changed it so I you couldn't. I remember the thread.

From what I understand is that you can hunt a hunters choice as long as you have your main tag... So if you use your bonus permit for the management zone you will still be able to hunt the hunters choice with your main tag.

Yep back in 2009 there was some confusion but Lou made some changes to the regs to clear things up so now you can shoot two does in a managed area with bonus tags and then take a buck in a lotto area.

Yeah, one of the last posts in the linked thread explains it perfectly. It is the answer given by the CO.

      We also ran into Fisky on the lake as well as at the weigh-in. He is a fun guy to share a boat seat with.....and catches lots of fish big and small. We had a 30 1/4 fairly early but struggled to find 18 - 19 inchers. Or 16 or 17's. We had 1 18 and finally kept two 14 1/2's as the day wound down.  Not getting nice unders was really unexpected. But color us very happy with the results. Good luck

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.
