Can I shoot a doe with Muzzleloader if....???

6 posts in this topic

I hunt in central Mn. I applied for a doe tag but didnt get one for the regular firearms season. If I muzzleload in Northern MN (north of Park Rapids), can I shoot a buck or doe with muzzleloader or did I loose that option of shooting a doe when I bought the reg. firearms tag???

What if Im in an intensive harvest area?

Thanks

If you are in a lottery area -- it sounds like you are-- you can not shoot a doe with a muzzeloader. You lost your chance to do so when you applied for a doe tag during the regular season. If you go to a intense area, then you can purchase a intense harvest tag for a doe and use it in an intense area only. Thats my read on the rules.

Pete is right, the only way you can shoot a doe with your ML in a lottery area is if you a.)were successful in the lottery, or b.)never bought a firearm license. You can go to any Management or Intensive harvest area and use a YOUR ML tag as long as you have not reached your "bag" limit in any of those areas, i.e. 2 deer in a managed area, or 5 deer in an intensive harvest area, and you have not met your 5 deer Minnesota Bag limit in any combination of areas. Sound confusing???

96trigger, why would he need to get a bonus tag? This doesn't jive with what you told me before that which tag it is doesn't matter. If he goes to an intensive or bonus area can't he just use the ML tag he has?

Also, he can look for areas with surplus doe tags in lottery areas. That's another way to get one, I got one that way for Rock County after I didn't apply originally.

LAWDOG. I just reread my post, you are right he would NOT need to get a bonus tag to shoot a doe in the Management or Intensive harvest area, He could use his regular license to tag the doe. I am sorry for the confusion, I mispoke. I'm glad that one of us understands things, thank you for catching the correction.... I have since edited the post. Again, thank you.

I like this system better, but more questions come up about that darn lottery area than anything.

Differant area ya you can shoot ethire as long as you haven't taken a buck one buck state wide. you can fill one tag in a manage area let say a buck and go shoot a doe in a manage area with a bouns tag and go to a intensive harvest area an shoot 3 more deer with bouns tags. its still 1 buck and 4 does it meets state wide quota. look at regs.

    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
