Is there a 5-7 day quiet period in the NLP for dog hunters? Just curious didn't see anything in the game laws about NLP saw for the U.P. only possibly.

Thanks

Yes there is. It's 5 days; from 9/10 to 9/14. Then it will be the running of the hounds.

I'm talking Northern Lower and that would mean that it wasn't the 5 days prior to season. NLP Starts Sept 19th if I'm not mistaken

I don't believe there is a quiet period in the lower prior to the opening on the 19th. Most hound hunters don't run much if at all close to the opener because of the risk of getting a dog hurt just before the season starts

The only quiet period in the UP is the first 5 days of bear season, it's legal to hunt right up to opening day. Hound hunting in the UP is not allowed during those 5 days. The first day of the season is 9/10, the second season starts 9/15 and hounds are allowed.

Yes there is. It's 5 days; from 9/10 to 9/14
My first post contained a little humor it wasn't meant to confuse the issue; sorry. A few guys did catch it and PM'd me. I didn't want to see another hound bashing thread get started. We have to share the woods with others even if we disagree with their methods.
