  1. New model runs show much of north central and northeast mn receiving 4-6" of snow Friday evening in Saturday. Then followed by freezing rain Sunday. Tree stand safety must not be taken lightly this weekend.
  2. Yea. It's kind of bush league. Managed which is 5 miles from me can shoot 2 does for $15 each. I can shoot 1 doe with my bow for $30 and I lose my buck tag statewide with a bow. So I'm forced to buy a muzzy or gun tag for another $30 to harvest my buck in a different zone. So i have to pay $60 for two deer and the guy a few miles away can shoot 2 for 30$ if there both does.
  3. Thanks for sharing that, I clearly understand what the law is. I'm not fan of only one part of the law. Which is if you shoot your doe in a hunters choice area, you lose your buck tag with that weapon in other areas. You are allowed 1 buck in mn, shouldn't matter which weapon you use.
  4. I've done it both ways. Get your own or go to lucky 7 bait. Both are good ways. Last year though I went to lucky 7, dropped $100 and was done collecting bait in 5 mins. Didn't have to worry about mold, freezing stuff, driving around on Tuesday and Friday when they trash the bread, etc. I save all my oil from fish frys. Pretty slick....
  5. Thanks, that's what I needed to know....
  6. Does anyone know in a lottery area, do youth and archery hunters still get the free antlerless?? If the above answer is yes, do archery hunters have to tag the doe with their main archery tag? There for, you couldn't harvest a buck with the bow in another area?? Its been 4 years since I've dealt with these questions. Need a refresher.....thanks
  7. It's set up a little differently this year. Click on interactive map, then your hunting area and it will give you details. In general most of central Minnesota amd north is hunters choice. The east central area is 2 deer again. Intensive is now 3 deer, not 5.
  8. 1000 doe tags for 183. Not thrilled. 3 years of bucks only and now only 1000. At this pace were going to hook another bad winter and be back at square 1 before more tags are available. I guess once bitten, twice shy for the dnr.
  9. I collect year round. So disappointed in the number of permits though. I get a little discouraged when I see so many bears. I'll have to apply again for extra permit.
  10. So about 20 years ago we started planting Apple trees as wildlife plots. I read a ton of info on how to' s, best practices, etc etc. I planted about 200 trees. Roughly half made it to adulthood. Trees died from many reasons from bears, to moles, infections, etc. But we have lots of thriving, heavy producing trees. Something I found interesting is the trees that I didn't prune have done far better than the trees I did prune. My question is, is pruning a must or overrated in your opinion. Just curious your answers..
  11. News release says we have reached the top of cycle. That being said the cycle is nothing what it used to be
