Clarify All Season license ?

Recommended Posts

ozzie

I know this may have been asked but with the all season license can I shoot a buck (rifle/shotgun season) most anywhere (except 3B) in the state? I understand the doe part but I read the DNR regs and am confused as to the buck portion for this season.

Yes, anywhere & any time the season is open in that area, with any weapon legal for that season.

But you may still only take 1 buck total for the year and not 1 buck for each season. The other two tags you receive with the all season license are for antlerless deer only.

Thanks that is what I thought.....I also picked up a regs book on lunch break and found my answer. I was confused after reading something on the DNR website.

just one more question reguarding all season license. If I used both anterless tags and my eithr sex tag on a buck last weekend in a managed area can I use a bonus permit in that same area to take a another doe. thanks for the info in advance.

Elwood I'm not 100% sure of my answer here so maybe best check for another answer or read the regs youself but I believe in a managed area if you taken 3 deer by firearm or combination of weapons(2 antlerless and 1 buck) you are done hunting that area. There is no mention in the regs about an all season license holder having the ability to by bonus tags for additional deer in managed areas. It says you may take 3 deer. Whereas for hunters in intensive areas the regs say an all season license holder can purchase bonus tags for additional deer up to a maximum of 5. So it seems to me 3 is the limit from a managed area.

MANAGED DEER AREAS

The number and type of deer you can kill in managed deer areas varies by license type. Below is a summary of the licenses and what type of deer may be harvested:

• All-season deer - may take up to three deer in managed deer areas during the firearm season but only two can be antlerless. Hunters can tag an antlerless deer with their either-sex tag but are advised to use their antlerless-only tags first. All-season hunters do not need to purchase bonus permits for use in managed areas because the license

now includes a third tag.

INTENSIVE DEER AREAS

Intensive deer areas have a bag limit of 5 deer total. Below is a summary of the licenses and what type of deer may be harvested:

All-season deer - may take up to three deer with that license during the firearm season but only two can be antlerless. Hunters can tag an antlerless deer with their either-sex tag but are advised to use their antlerless-only tags first. All-season hunters can purchase bonus permits and the bag limit in intensive areas is five deer.

So it seems to me if you want to keep hunting you would have to buy a bonus tag and hunt in an intensive deer area as you limit of 3 in a managed area has been reached.

      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?

      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

      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.

      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!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?
