  1. I did talk to a CO and you are incorrect (I was told that the CO would double check to make sure). You are only allowed to take 1 deer in ANY 1 deer zone with ANY weapon. You were also correct that the weapon of choice does not matter, but ONLY in 1 deer zones. But since the Metro is not a 1 deer zone I can take a buck in the metro and then use my rifle tag to take a doe up in rifle season. If you see something in the regs I am missing, please let me know the page and section.... or copy and paste like I did before. Thanks!
  2. Thanks for adding that for me, yes I think I am good too.
  3. Anyfish - That is how I read it too....
  4. Page 71 of the reg book is where I am getting most of my info. Here is the parts I am referring to... Statewide Bag Limits for Deer A hunter may tag one legal buck per year, without exception. Although hunters can buy all three licenses, the bag limits may not allow all three tags to be filled in a single deer area. It is the hunter’s responsibility to know the bag limit for the areas they hunt. The statewide bag limit for deer is five. Bucks-only Deer Areas—The bag limit is one legal buck total per year (see page 72), regardless of license type or season. No antlerless deer may be harvested, by anyone, in a bucks-only area. If you take a deer in a bucks-only deer area, you cannot take another deer in another bucks-only, lottery or hunter choice deer area. However, you can take antlerless deer in managed or intensive deer areas, as well as some special hunt areas with a valid permit, provided you adhere to the regulations and bag limits for those areas. Bonus permits are not valid in bucks-only deer areas. Lottery Deer Areas—The bag limit is one deer total per year, regardless of license type. An either-sex permit is required to take antlerless deer in lottery deer areas. If you take a deer in a lottery deer area, you cannot take another deer in another bucks-only, lottery or hunter choice deer area. However, you can take deer in managed or intensive deer areas, as well as some special hunt areas with a valid permit, provided you adhere to the regulations and bag limits for those areas. Bonus permits are not valid in lottery deer areas. Hunter Choice Deer Areas—The bag limit is one either-sex deer total per year, regardless of license type. If you take a deer in a hunter choice deer area, you cannot take another deer in another bucks-only, lottery, or hunter choice deer area. However, you can take deer in managed or intensive deer areas, as well as some special hunt areas with a valid permit, provided you adhere to the regulations and bag limits for those areas. Bonus permits are not valid in hunter choice deer areas.
  5. Harvey - This really depends on what zone/s.... If you hunt (archery and rifle) in a Hunters choice area, then no you cannot. Most of the state is Buck only, Lottery (doe permit), or Hunters choice (1 or the other). If you hunt in any one of these types of zones this year, my understanding is that you get 1 deer.... Archery or Rifle. Even if they are different Hunters Choice zones. Just my understanding....
  6. I have rifled hunted for 20 years in zone 2. This year my son and I will be archery hunting in a different zone/area. I plan on asking a CO friend of mine this Saturday to make sure I have this completely right. But I just got done reading the regs. The Rifle zone is Hunters Choice and the Archery zone is the metro zone. Here is what I understand.... Let me know where I messed up. - I can only take 1 buck period in the state of MN regardless of zone/weapon. - If I take a Buck in Archery season, I can still use my rifle tag to take a Doe. - If I take a Buck in Rifle season, I can still take a Doe in the metro zone without buying an antlerless tag (use my main archery tag) Is this how you more seasoned archery guys read it? FYI - I don't plan on taking more than 1 or 2 deer between my sons and myself. I just want to make sure I completely understand the law before I head to the woods. And I will ask a CO this weekend, just curious of everyone else's read of the regs.
  7. I like using Tiger Eye's for my dead sticks and I cannot find them ANYWHERE in the cities. Buddy txt's me and found them 3 for $5 at the show. Needless to say we stocked up!
  8. WOW is all I can say about turn around time. I sent mine in on Tuesday (from the Metro area) and had it back at my door on Friday. The blade looks extremely sharp. I can't wait to start drilling holes with it. Now I have to put this blade on and send my other blade in (too nervous about the process to send them both in at the same time). If you are like me and hesitant to send stuff through the mail, don't wait any longer. Frank is the real deal and delivers on what he says. Thanks Frank! Luv2fish
  9. Yep, that is the upgrade I was referring to. You also get a new softcase and the ability to record (Like the LX9). Seems like at the end of the upgrade you will have the same as LX9. Pretty sweet for those of us that bought the LX7 last year.
  10. I actually emailed support and they said they are still working out the details of how to do it. They mentioned the new stuff you will get, that you have to bring/send it in and that it will be around $500.... Luv2fish
  11. For the last 7 years it has been local (cities) day trips and 3 Red weekend trips with the wheelhouse. This year I can't commit the time to Red and I am switching to Mille Lacs for most of my trips. Going to give it a good year long try to learn that lake a bit!
  12. Tisosy11 - I don't have the steps yet. But will be trying it tonight. I just got direct TV installed and told the installer my plan to use it on the lake. Here are things he told me that might help you. 1. Almost all installs use the Slimline Dishes and SWiM technology for HD. He really urged me to NOT use HD in the camper/fishhouse. He told me to just buy an Oval 18" dish and get SD TV. He said that aiming the HD dishes was hard to do, SD was very easy. (I am planning on using an HD receiver that I am using today in my house with the existing system) 2. With that said, he said the first thing you need to do it change the setting on the receiver to remove the SWiM stuff and get it to 18" dish. 3. Then he said to go into settings and tell the receiver to pull the NON-HD channels down also. I will be trying that all out tonight as I just got my second dish in the mail. Mike
  13. Cool, I was going to try that but stopped as I was not 100% sure. It looked like just back that screw out a bit.
  14. I am going to get out this week for my first trip, so I finally got in the garage to get the Auger fired up. Like always, I got it running really quickly and it ran good. Only had 1 problem.... When it was idleing the auger wanted to turn. In the past it would want to turn just a little bit, not a big deal. This time it really wanted to move around. I am guessing there is something I can do to fix this? Sorry not really mechanical but good at following directions... Any thoughts? Thanks!
  15. I got a chance to use mine this weekend fishing for panfish in my portable. I loved how easy they were to adjust. No messing around with all these different bobbers cut do different sizes. And yes, they helped me catch a fish or two. Next test in a week in my wheelhouse on Red Lake!
