Duck Boat License Question

8 posts in this topic

I picked up a Otter Stealth 2000 duck boat today at G.M. for $450.00. I thought it was a great deal. I assume something like this still requires a DNR license. Can anyone verify this? I appreciate your input.

If you will use it only for duck hunting, NO, you don't have to license it.

Check out page one of the DNR boating guide:

WHAT MUST BE LICENSED

All motorized and non-motorized watercraft must be licensed by the Department of Natural Resources(DNR). The types of watercraft that must be licensed include, but are not limited to, motorboats, rowboats, sailboats, sailboards, canoes, kayaks, paddle boats, rowing shells or sculls, all-terrain vehicles used in the water, and inflatable craft.

Exceptions to this law are as follows:

6. Duck boats during the duck hunting season,

rice boats during the harvest season and

seaplanes.

No license required if it is only used for duck hunting. If you are fishing out of it it needs to be licensed

That seems like a really good price for the stealth. Do they have any more for that price? Thanks.

I have contacted several G.M.'s and none of them carry the stealth 2000. I would really be interested in buying one at that price. Could you let me know what G.M. you shopped at. Thanks.

I got it at the Forest Lake location. It was the only one they had. Evidently it was a display model or return but for $450.00 I could not pass it up. It was out front with their other boats but did not have a price on it. When I was checking out I asked about it and the manager said $450.00. I went home, did a little research and realized the deal, went back and bought. Wish I could tell you they had more.

WOW! They told me they never sold any otter duck boats. Good for you finding such a deal. Happy hunting.
