Recommended Posts

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

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
