TB in area 101

7 posts in this topic

I just read the DNR is opening up another season in area 101 in NW MN because of TB. If memory serves me right, didn't that happen to another area close to there last year? Are the deer contracting this disease because the densities are too high or what's the problem?

Yes they are opening the season the same as they did last year. Area 101 "is the TB Zone"....the season runs 12/27-1/11 and you can use any unused deer tags from anywhere in the state for any season...but....if you have only a archery lisc. you must hunt with archery...only a muzzy license, you must use a muzzy...etc....You can buy as many additonal bonus permits as you want for $2.50 each...there's no limit...All deer have to be presented for registration and testing at designated sites in or adjacent to zone 101...This is just an ongoing "precautionary" measure to erradicate TB...of the deer tested this fall in this area and surrounding areas none have so far tested presumtive positive for TB...there was however a cow from this area that was detected to be positive when it was shipped for slaughter this fall....when the extended hunt is done they'll take an arial survey and see if they need to bring in the sharpshooters and extend the hunting for area residents again like they did last year...

Sometimes I wonder, why don't they just let the hunters thin them out during season and have fewer registration places and check them when the hunters bring them in, I don't see the pluses of slaughtering them and finding no TB. Let the hunters get them and then check them, we wouldn't have to pay there salary for culling deer. Just a thought that maybe is way off.

Gotta show my dumb side: so if I understand this, I have an unused rifle tag, I could then hunt in zone 101 during the season and be legal?

Ya you could, but don't bother. There are not many deer left around there. I know landowners that have to go elsewhere to hunt because there aren't any deer.

Musky buck,

There's a ton of them come here. That place smells really good some days... It's about 2 miles North of my work.

Where are you sending those sick ones from?

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.

    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.
