new hunting regs

82 posts in this topic

When do the new regs come out? I see the fall turkey hunt app deadline is 7/31, so I would think some of those regs have to come out pretty quick.

Anybody been able to find this year's dates for Ripley yet?

My bad your loking for the Ripley hunting dates not the deadline to apply. I think they usually come out in early August Least thats when I usually get them. The deer seasons are for this year though

Regs come out the last week in July. The Ripley deadline is always the Friday nearest August 17th. That makes it Aug. 14th this year.

Unless changed by the Military, the hunt schedules are:

Hunt 1: Third Thursday in October

Hunt 2: Last Saturday in October

Another good date to remember is the general deer lottery application deadline, which is always the Thursday after Labor Day (Sept. 10th this year).

I hope that helps.

The third Thursday is the 15th this year. The last Saturday is actually the 31st. I'm thinking the best bet is the second one would actually be the 24-25 weekend wouldn't it? It seems like normally the second one usually starts 7 days after the first one ends.

Man the end of July seems like a long time away... I guess I'm addicted to deer hunting...

I hear you man! I've been checking the DNR site everyday to see if they're posted. The actual dates for Ripley showed up a few days ago, but that's about it.

#1 is 10/15-16 (Thursday-Friday)

#2 is 10/31-11/1 (Saturday-Sunday)

Need them posted soon as I have to see what type of area (lottery, managed, or intensive) my main areas are going to be, so I can decide when I'm going to WI. That will determine which fall turkey season I apply for & that deadline is 7/31. Sometimes maximizing your opportunities gets difficult...

The book should be out in a couple of weeks. However, permit area designations can be found here: 2009 Deer Permit Areas.

It went to the Star Tribune and Outdoor News but they haven't run it yet. Hopefully, a lot will go up on the DNR site next week. The main stuff is in the final editing stages.

So Youth Only means only youth can hunt deer period in those zones? Or only they can take does?

Everyone can hunt but they'll be the only ones allowed to take does and the number of permits will be limited. It was used down there in 1999 and 2000.

Thanks for the info lcornice. The area designations takes care of what I need to know to make my plans. They're pretty much what I figured they should be in my main areas (213 & 214). Good job

Thanks for the info lcornice! I don't hunt in those areas, I was just wondering. Sounds like a good plan if the numbers are low there. This way the youngsters can still take "A" deer. Hopefully we'll see higher numbers there soon.

If the area is managed how many does can you take then i know it was intensive last year and that was 5, is it 1 extra permit this year?

Yepper, You will get two deer max. Only one can be a legal buck. Not sure of the reason for change in my area, but we will see what happens.

Yes, I agree, I am in 342, I have seen more "herds" of deer this past spring than any other. Not sure of the change. Maybe an increase in harvest last year? Maybe they will do the every other year thing. Not sure, but whatever the case, it is what it is and I do believe the DNR still know what they are doing.

Holy [PoorWordUsage]!!!! Am I reading that right? 3A and 3B regulations are the SAME except for the last weekend of 3A. You no longer have to apply for doe tags during 3A? They are over the counter and 3B still has to share the last weekend with all the 3A ML hunters. WOW is all I can say. 3B is history.

It was nice that they essentially shut down the muzzleloader hunt in my area.

What a joke.....

How do mean "they shut down the muzzleloader hunt" in your area? I don't get it.

...Have to apply for a doe permit, zero alloted doe permits in area.

Weren't there those that were complaining about everyone shooting young bucks not too long ago? They ought to really take a beating this fall and winter.

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
