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.
