Party hunting can be done legal and done without abusing. If you know of this being abused than call tip until others start doing that then you will always have this debate and nothing will change. Tip is on speed dial on my phone.
Our group has always party hunted no tags are filled by others who are not in the field or near the other hunters. No one in camp tags being used or wifes tag , when ever stopped or checked we never had to worry about anything being illegal. We have had to turn in other hunters before , making a drive and you walk in on deer hanging in the trees untagged and mile deep in the woods.
People have traditions and not are all bad and deer camp is great time of year to be with family and friends. The gun season will not be moved back MN likes having the out of state hunters from wI same with WI. I know 15-20 people that come over hunt MN then go back and hunt wI gun. They love it and have been doing that since they were kids and their dads did the same.
I'm not saying everyone will like or does party hunting but does not mean it's abused by all. If you know of people abusing then call tip if you don't then stop complaining if you not willing to do something about it. Or the abuse will not stop and we will be always be seeing these threads. I know guy who has 5 tags and hunts a lone.
