Bear aging notification from DNR

Recommended Posts

Tippman

Hey guys, this was my first year bear hunting. I was just wondering how long it takes the DNR to get back to you on the age of the bear from the teeth I submitted?

It seems to me that I've gotten mine right before the next season.

I seem to remember always getting mine in middle of July. It is really neat to find out how old the bear you took from the previous was. I have taken 3 bears a 12.5, and 10.5 year old, and am waiting on this past years which was the biggest out of all them. My mount was just finished so it will be at the MN Deer Classic, im excited!

What was the weight on those 12.5 yr old bears? Sows or boars?

The bear that was 12.5 years old weighed 367lbs. dressed. My 10.5 year old weighed 305lb. dressed. The bear I shot this year was the biggest shot with a bow in the county we hunt. Our scale stops at 375 and bottomed it out.

They're going out now in several waves. If you haven't received it by now, you will soon.

What happens if you get one and it says 0 years old? No it wasn't me. Will they get a ticket?

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
