  Section  1.  Paragraph  c  of  subdivision 8 of section 11-0907 of the

2007, is amended to read as follows:
  c. Until October first, two thousand [eleven]  FIFTEEN,  such  special
season for the Northern Zone or any portion thereof may by regulation be
for  up  to  a fourteen-day period preceding the regular open season for
deer stated in column two of the table set forth  in  subdivision  2  of
this  section  or  may be for up to a fourteen-day period following such
open season or any combination  thereof,  provided  that  a  maximum  of

such  Northern  Zone  muzzle-loading firearm big game season may specify
the taking of deer of either sex,  antlerless  deer  only,  legal  bucks

ipating in the Northern Zone  muzzle-loading  firearm  big  game  season
obtain  a  special  permit  from the department. When establishing these
regulations, the department must consider the condition of the herd  and
communities', property owners', hunters' and other relevant interests.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
