Old news???

15 posts in this topic

I heard on the radio that they have cut the ALL season deer tag? Is this old news or what? I looked on the Mndnr site and did not see anything. What is the word on this?

Their is an article in the current MN Outdoor News about this. Their is now two regular firearms licenses. The statewide (A) season license, and then a (B) season license for what was traditionally the 3B season. Areas during the (A) season have different season lengths resembling the old zones we were used to (1A, 2A, 4A..).

So eyesorbust, you'll be spending $28 instead of $78.

Can they at least print all three of the licenses I'm going to have to buy one one sheet like they do my pheasant stamp and duck stamp on my small game license? The very last thing I need is more pieces of paper to carry with me all the time and make sure which one I have when I'm hunting which season. Also will each one have a separate tag too? This will be a mess of paper...

Looks like 28*3=84 so the DNR is also raising my all-season license $6 huh? That's a pretty sneaky way to raise a license fee without telling anyone.

I think the new suggestions are great, but to make it easier to understand they should word it "the firearm's license is valid statewide" (except 3B(also silly)) and keep the zones the same.

That would be better than "...new zones, but the shotgun and rifle areas still apply, but the season length didn't change in the North Zone but now the South Zone is 8 instead of 2 and 4 days..." etc.

But a lot of people were buying the All Season license that didn't need archery or muzzloader, so for them it's cheaper.

Plus everything is going up. It would have gone up even if they hadn't made the changes.

It'll still be a lot of paper because of the tag. There's just no way to design a licensing system so long as the animal has to be tagged. As for price, deer licenses are $26, not $28. License fees are actually controlled by the Legislature. DNR couldn't raise them if they wanted to.

oops, sorry about the $28 vs $26. Thanks for the correction lcornice.

This will be my first year arching. Does the archery license come with only one tag?

Lou,

First appreciate all that you folks do to try and make things work.

Second any word yet on the Intensive Harvest areas or bonus tag areas?

If so are these going to be identified by the old area numbers?

And if or when the early season is held will that also be considered seperate license or count towards the regular season doe tags?

How does the regular season license work? Is this a bucks only license, does only, one of each?

Does your regular season tag need to be filled first before purchasing bonus tags or fill bonus tag prior to regular tag?

I know we should just wait until the regs come out but some of us are tweaking for the season to start already and are incurably inquisitive:)

Im curious how this will affect the Lifetime Licences. This should be a good thing for me since I have archery and firearms deer. I had to upgrade to Multizone Buck in order to hunt in zone 1 along with zone 2. This cost me an additional 30 some bucks every year.

Obviously I am a non resident now but bought these licenses before I moved.

Does anyone know if I can get a muzzleloading licence with my lifetime licence?

If so are these going to be identified by the old area numbers? The 400 series areas will be renumbered to a 200 series. The boundaries aren't changing

And if or when the early season is held will that also be considered seperate license or count towards the regular season doe tags? They'll be EA areas and they won't count towards your total season bag (same as always)

How does the regular season license work? Is this a bucks only license, does only, one of each? Same as always. Either-sex in managed or intensive areas right off the bat. It's bucks only in lottery unless you draw a permit.

Does your regular season tag need to be filled first before purchasing bonus tags or fill bonus tag prior to regular tag? Nope, it's never been that way. You just need to have the tag before you shoot the deer. You can't shoot first, buy tag later

I think I opened a can of worms

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
