What are we trying to accomplish in Zone 4???

2 posts in this topic

Now I dont want to start a big fight about quality deer management or anything but just want some insight here. Really though, what is the DNR's goal for the deer herd in Zone 4(specifically 277). First off, why were there so few doe tags handed out??? Is the population so low we cant take some does out??? Myself and most others I talked to seen plenty of does and fawns running around out there. Therefor every 1 1/2 buck has a bounty on it for 9 days.... I was at a few registration stations last weekend and both of them figured they registered bucks 75% of the time. So I guess i'm just wondering what were aiming for???? Thanks

I think that the DNR is managing for population in zone 4. There will be 75% buck registration when only 25% of the hunters get a doe tag. you also have to remember that zone 4 is huge, basically all of Mn except SEMN. You might be better off dicussing what area you are in . I think some areas in zone 4 do not have the deer population that you are describing.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!

    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
