Here is a Deer tag question

Here is my Deer Tag question.

Firearms Season

If I hunt in a management area,

I can havest a buck or antlerless deer with regular license, then get another antlerless deer with a bonus tag. Am I done?

Now, filling my regular firearms license and bonus tag

for that management area that I hunted in the firearms season.

Can I buy a Muzzleloader License? Can I purchase a bonus tag?

Or is my hunting over for the year? hunting same area as firearms season.(management Area)

If I bow hunted and harvested a buck in a intensive

harvest area then go gun hunting in a management area, can I

use my regular firearms license to tag a anterless only and

buy a bonus license, like maybe getting 2 deer during firearms

season. having got a buck, making this 3 deer per year.

Can these scenerios play out as long as you only

tag no more then 5 deer,also one of them can be a buck and only one that is .

This is what I interpet from Rule book

Or am missing something?

Just want to be clear on the rules.

Like to hear your imput.

Also Good luck to all of you hunting and be safe!

Thanks

They addressed this on the radio last night. You can only tag the number/combination of deer authorized for your area. IE.. if your area allows a buck and a doe, then that is all you can take regardless of the combinations of seasons you hunt. It sounds to me like you've got it correct though, you can mix and match you just cant go over the alloted deer harvest number for your area.

While this post should not be viewed as a substitute for the regulations book, you pretty much have it right. If you killed both your deer during the gun season in a managed area, you're done in managed areas because you reached the bag limit (2).

The 2 major rules are:

1) One buck ... period

2) Areas are managed by bag limits. You can mix and match seasons and license types (regular, bonus) in any way you want so long as you don't exceed the bag limits (or the statewide bag limit of 5) -

a) lottery - one per year total

B) managed - 2 per year (not 2 per managed it's 2 total)

c) intensive - up to 5

Remember, the early antlerless bag doesn't count towards your 5.

Good luck!

Firearms Season

yes, in a management area you are done, you can move to intesive harvest area for 3 more anterless deer.

Now, filling my regular firearms license and bonus tag

for that management area that I hunted in the firearms season.

Can I buy a Muzzleloader License? Can I purchase a bonus tag?

Or is my hunting over for the year? hunting same area as firearms season.(management Area)

You are done in a management area, you would need to move to an intensive harvest area to muzzleload.

If I bow hunted and harvested a buck in a intensive

harvest area then go gun hunting in a management area, can I

use my regular firearms license to tag a anterless only and

buy a bonus license, like maybe getting 2 deer during firearms

season. having got a buck, making this 3 deer per year.

This is correct and you could go back and take 2 more anterless deer in an intensive harvest area for a total of 5.

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
