We have the same issue in zone 260 WAY up North as you do mnmaverick. In 2009 it was intensive harvest area with an early antlerless season in October and now it is "Hunter Choice" area which means you can harvest ONE doe/buck and that is it. Assuming I understand the regulations correctly. The good thing is my backup area is 239 and that area is still a managed area so if I hunt 260 and 239 I could harvest one deer in 260 and 1 in 239 or 2 in 239 and 0 in 260.
