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.

    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
    • Here's the exact reason why I encourage everyone to buy the digital readout.  After getting holes drilled and everything setup, I always run my bathroom roof fan/vent to get rid of the moisture as the slush on the floor gets melted.  Yesterday I cranked the fan on max which moves some serious air, but I forgot to crack a window, which caused it to actually suction the CO from my water heater back into the house through a propane line pass through.  I looked up and saw 30ppm on the CO detector, which isn't high, but an indicator that something wasn't right.  All it took was cracking a window and turning down the fan for a minute and it was back to 0.

    • I looked into fiberglass a few years back for a build.  I decided against it as it needed a wood backer.  Not sure if there is a different product out there now.  
    • finally got out Friday, put on 75 miles in the heavy drizzle, not the first time I have riden in the rain. the trails were OK, I rode in aitkin co. that doubles the miles I put on in the last two years.
    • they load tested the battery and said it was bad, everything else they said was fine, they put in a new battery. tried it today after sitting since Tuesday, and it started up fine, problem fixed.   I have a 2002 grizz carbed, and that sat for close to 3 months, went to start it this weekend, and it cranked for at least a minute (very cold blooded machine) and it started, it has the same battery that's in the Polaris.
    • Precious snowflake Trump needs a safe space from the media apparently.   I suggest you familiarize yourself with the word kakistocracy, because that appears to be the road we will be traveling down.
    • No,I am saying those who are left with jobs are working for those who Obama is happy to give money to for nothing. He was as bad as it gets in terms of getting people back to work after a recession especially when you factor in the amount of money he spent to do it.
