Archery question about doe's

8 posts in this topic

Used to be you could not shoot a doe during the Rifle/shotgun season. I've looked through the regulation a couple of times and can't seem to find anything about it. Can you shoot a doe with archery during the firearms season, in a lottery area, without a antlerless tag??

Yes, all archery tags are either sex. However if you shoot a doe with your archery tag in a lotto area you also burn up your archery buck tag.

In the lottery zones; if I take a doe in a lottery zone w/ my archery tag, can I still harvest a buck w/ a rifle/ shotgun during the firearm season in a the same or a different lottery zone? All this new stuff to learn before the season gets hard. I hope they don't change everything again next season.

You may only take a buck in a lottery zone after that if someone else is hunting with you (party hunting). You have burned your one tag for the lottery zone and you can only tag one deer in the lottery zone be it a doe or a buck.

The only way to take a buck on your own is to go to a management or intensive harvest zone from my understanding. Some one correct me if I am wrong.

lottery zones only allow the harvest of ONE deer, be it doe or buck. to take a doe with a bow in a lottery zone, you must tag it with your archery tag. if you shoot a buck with bow in a lottery zone, you can no longer shoot a doe with your bow, no matter what season, firearms, and muzzleloader. lottery areas are one deer total. also, correct me if i'm wrong

Soooooo... I can or can not shoot a doe w/ my archery tag and then shoot a buck w/ my firearm tag all in the same lottery zone? One deer total in a lottery zone for all 3 seasons? archery/ firearm/ and muzzleloader. last year in the same zone I could harvest 5 does, kind of wierd if you ask me

thanx jameson; one thing wasn't mentioned though. No bag limit/ unlimited qouta in the metro zone... meaning that any one who buys a tag of any kind in MN can harvest as many deer as they want to. I think the insurance companies have some pretty good/ powerful lobbyist at the capital. Good luck every one; make sure you know what the limits are where you are.

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
