New Regulation Change Article From The Star Trib.

4 posts in this topic

I know most know of these and I always recommend to look at the regs on-line or in the real book, but the Tribe has broke down some of the changes.

The rules afield have changed

Last update: September 9, 2008 - 7:07 PM

There are plenty of new hunting regulations this year. Be sure to get -- and read -- a copy of the DNR's 2008 hunting and trapping regulations handbook for details. Here are some key ones:

• The minimum age to hunt big game, including deer, has been reduced to allow 10- and 11-year-olds to hunt. They will have to be under "direct supervision" of a parent or guardian, who must be "within immediate reach" of the youth. Big game taken by the youths must be tagged with the license of the parent or guardian.

• People ages 12 to 15 can now apply for moose and elk hunts.

• The law prohibiting hunters from baiting deer has been clarified. The new definition of bait or feed includes "grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, hay or other food that is capable of attracting or enticing deer and that has been placed by a person." A person hunting on private or public land adjacent to land that was baited is not in violation if he has not participated in, been involved with or agreed to the baiting.

• Hunters no longer will have to validate (notch) their deer licenses when they harvest an animal, though they still must validate their site tags.

• A law requiring grouse hunters to be at least 20 yards from a vehicle was repealed. It's still illegal to transport an uncased firearm in a vehicle or ATV, or to shoot from a vehicle or ATV.

• The bag limit for pheasants will increase late in the season. The two-bird daily limit will increase to three, and the six-bird possession limit will increase to nine from Dec. 1 to the end of the season, Jan. 4.

• The minimum cartridge requirement for big-game hunting now is a centerfire .22 caliber.

• Beginning March 1, 2009, residents under 16 must obtain a free license to hunt small game.

• People hunting small game with nontoxic shot are no longer exempt from blaze orange requirements.

• State duck and pheasant stamps no longer need to be signed to be valid.

.22's for big game yeah it could be done but is it responsible? Who brought up this change and why? I think it is a poacher's cartidge.

Sorry about the negative post,but it's never a bad idea to thoroughly question new laws and find the loopholes and unexpected ramifications. Hans

Take a closer look. It's a .22 centerfire, not rimfire. I bet you could search forever and not find a .22 centerfire. Basically what that law did was allow varmint guns to be able to be used hunting big game. The balistics are much different using a .223 centerfire and a .22 rimfire. Of course, proper shot placement is still needed much like with a larger gun but a .223 is still plenty to bring down a deer.

I failed to take a closer look. So my "thoroughly need to explore every new rule" quote from above-has just been proven.

Thanks for the heads up BGB. There is a huge diffence in performance between the two.

I'm a huge 257 Roberts fan for whitetails and there is little practicle differance between that pee shooter and a .223

.22 long rifle rimfire isn't even close. Hans

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
