Zone 2 Hunters

5 posts in this topic

Just looking to get you thoughts now that we are in the middle of the new 9 day season?

I really like it, it has allowed me to be more selective in what deer I chose to harvest or pass up. Although I still don't think this alone is enough to improve the overall quality of the herd. More doe tags or the opportunity to harvest either sex with the standard firearms licenses would be the way to improve the size structure of the bucks in the area IMO.

I like the longer season. Like you said, able to be more selective. Minnesota needs to get rid of doe tags and initiate buck tags instead. This is the way every other state does it, they can't all be wrong.

Agreed, while I don't want to harvest a small buck, being as all I do is shutgun hunt, I am left with either hope for a big guy or go home empty. I would rather be able to shoot a doe every year and then have a buck tag some years. Although this also opens up problems, there is no perfect system but ours isn't close...

I assume youre talking in the southern/SW part of the state, because its always been Zone 2 up here around Bemidji except that Bemidji is Zone 1 now for the last 3 years.

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
    •   1. He's one of those scary brown people 2. He's a scary Mooslim, not a god fearing Christian 3. Donald Trump sort of likes him.       How would I know? You're the one who brought it up. I thought you always said that it is the obligation of the poster to prove the facts that they post?
