TB in area 101

Recommended Posts

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?

    • Chocolate peanut butter stout is back on tap at the Boathouse in Ely.    A little thinner than last year but still a treat!
    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
