Military Deer License

6 posts in this topic

Have you military guys seen the change this year in the MN deer regs? From the DNR HSOforum -

Military deer license. Residents discharged from active military service may receive a free deer hunting license that is valid for either-sex deer. The license is also valid for either-sex deer in lottery and youth only antlerless areas.

It doesn't specify if "when" you were discharged makes a difference in getting this license. I emailed the DNR and tried calling but no luck yet. Anybody know if it matters when you were dischaged?

Thx.

I never heard of such a thing but it would be nice. Are you sure it is not for guys who are home on leave... and i know 100% disability gets a free license but far as i know i dont think jsut a regular guy discharged from the military qualifies. Maybe I am wrong?

I think you only read page 3, which is just the "what's new" section. The full military deer license info is on page 19. The answer is within 24 months. Take a look at the page and post any follow up questions.

nice gesture on the state's part. Here, a military member stationed outside of the state can walk into any GF&P office and buy his choice of tags and unit. No lottery invovled.

It goes 2 years from the date of discharge on your DD214. When I came back from Iraq, I got to hunt for two years without having to buy a license. Just take your DD214 to any license agent and they will issue you a free deer license. Works the same for fishing. You get to fish for free for 2 years. Don't even need to get a license. Just have a copy of your DD214 in the boat with you and that is your license. Very nice part on the state to do this for its vets.

I agree, it is great that the state does this. It happens in most states across the nation. I deer hunt in Iowa and my cousins husband is a active Air Force officer. When he gets in town to hunt with us all he has to do is sight in his gun. He does not even have to have a paper license. When he harvests a deer all he does is call the local CO. The CO shows up and looks at his leave papers and then tags his deer for him. Very Cool!

    • Honestly I'd rather just face the Hawks whenever we get our shot, we are either good enough or we are not. This the first year we have been better than them for the entire season, I say bring em on. I don't want to trade anyone away right now, havingn a guy like Scandella on the bottom pair makes us that much better. Throw some picks at a rental and keep our depth, no reason to make any drastic moves. We should be warry of San Jose too, they have a very solid team and made the trip last year but everyone else should be beatable if we play like we can and don't run into a hot goalie.
    • Pope suggests it's better to be an atheist than a bad Christian. CNN   Count me among those saying, "I don't share your beliefs, but you're one awesome pope. Keep on rocking."    

    • What is more likely, that your half of the media, gov & courts are honest and trustworthy and the other half is trying to destroy the world. Or that both sides are playing the public to enrich & empower themselves via a broken and corrupt system. Picking a side in this mess is playing the game by their rules. Your basic salami tactics to control the masses.
    •     Both from the same news outlet.
    •   Then why are you asking me this question?     Isn't that the way it's done now that we are in the Trump era?
    • Sounds like there is still some good snow up the Gunflint. I sent an email to Bearskin lodge about their web cam not working and got a reply.   "That's correct. The repaired webcam has broken again, unfortunately, so only the same picture gets sent.  It is fairly inaccessible because of deep snow, but someone will be going out soon to take it down so we can get it fixed again.  It will probably have to be put up in a new place, which will disappoint people who have been keeping running snaps of the photos to make video.   For what it's worth, it looks exactly the same now as it did when that picture was taken.  Winter tends to look the same everyday here."   Sue Bearskin Lodge   -----Original Message----- From: Steve A Sent: Thursday, February 23, 2017 11:10 AM To: stay@bearskin.com Subject: From the Bearskin Contact Form   From: Steve A Zip: 55429   Message Body: Whats up with your web cam? It's had the same picture for a month. There are a lot of us snowmobilers who watch your cam to know if there is any snow left up there and if we should come up sledding or not. Can you check to see if it's working?  Thanks.  
    • Any combo of Dunn/Jones is not something you can build a contender around. Either could eventually become a decent backup; neither looks to be leadership/starter material. I would have no problem with trading Rubio for another PG, as long as it is the right dude. 

      Much like Rubio, Rose just isn't worth the salary he will command. 
    • Anyone who took Brett Hite is a happy camper! Wayyyy too early yet to get too excited or too worried. Bobby Lane stuck an 8+, and his total weight is 17 and change, so he could vault up is he makes a couple of good culls.
