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

    • Is this public land where the thefts are occurring?  
    • Little update: water temp. is hanging around 64-67 right now. A lot of the thick milfoil mats are starting to turn brown. The great fall bite is getting ever so close! 
    • He's outside the political box but kind of like Hillary, a lot of the country hates them or doesn't trust them and really why would they? Seems like now more than ever would be the year for a 3rd party to step up but with this 2 party monopoly and 2 party media we won't get an honest answer until the votes are counted. A long shot for sure but things are shaping up nicely for a lot of people to jump to a 3rd party.
    • Picked up a couple decoys this weekend
    • Step 1 go to your bathroom. Step 2 turn on the light. Step 3 walk in and look in the mirror.
    • On sale is good but since I would have to carry them in and set the up opening morning I don't want to haul a piano in there. We have hunted this spot for about 18 years without seeing a person, now it's getting hard to trust the area.  We think it may be a local that comes during the week with a bolt cutters and cuts the lock cables. Kind of suks.  Will head over to Fleet and check them out. Thanks.
    • I buy whatever is on sale, but dont much care about portability or weight.  Just got some big game 32" sticks for $13 each at farm n barn.  They work fine for my purposes.
    • We had a good opener in Ashby! Kids shot a lot and even got a few  If adults would have been shooting it would have been limits of teal and possibly even some divers. Kids got to drive the trucks around the farm, shoot .22's, shoot some trap and even learned how to row a boat and retrieve ducks, and also how to pick up and wrap decoys. Saturday we saw lots of ducks and had the teal coming right into the decoys perfect. Sunday was not nearly as many ducks and the ones that did come just buzzed us. Had to leave at 8:30 due to kids sports in the afternoon. Great weekend!
    • I'd like to see your definition of "elitist", by the way. Gary Johnson and the Libertarians are not Trump's problem.   He has the same problem as Hillary - himself.
