DNR Regulations == law??

5 posts in this topic

I'm probably totally wrong here but just because the DNR publishes something in the regulations does that make it law? What about people who don't hunt, don't buy licenses, and don't ever read the regulations?

i.e. the target shooting a firearm before/after firearms deer season.

Do the DNR regulations actually pass through the legislature and get signed as state law?

Or as license holders are we voluntarily agreeing to these regulations but they don't affect the general population?

Just wondering...

Thanks for the info jbell. That clears it up. I suppose since they are laws any officer can enforce them then and not just COs?

Just be careful of the trespass law. What they have written is a "guideline" and not a law - many things come into play. In general it is better to be safe than sorry... but I gotta say, if you are a waterfowler, and you follow the law, you will find that you can hunt in more places than the regs would seem "to allow".

Best to ask questions, check with the most local (cities or tonwships), and don't be afraid to check farther than what you hear from the reg booklet or the Internet.... case in point the Hugo thread on this forum... smile for any people who recall it, check the Hugo blotter from last week, and you will see that the landowners around BE are full of [PoorWordUsage] and have a ticked off sheriff conducting "some landowner education" discussions wink hehe.

good luck, find out what you can do and go and have fun where you can!

    • Update   I was able to get an extension kit from Tim's Outboard! Couldn't believe it, I checked all over the internet and local shops and NOBODY had the right one for my motor, but Tim's was able to dig one up. It was a great price too, much less than I expected to pay. They shipped it out to me and I'll be installing it on Sunday. Thanks to swamptiger for the suggestion!
    •    Whether, for examples, it's the Trumper's silence, and sometimes support of, his proposed stimulus spending after opposing BHO's, or war protesters largely absent while BHO intervenes in the Middle East after 6 years of massive protest marches when GWB did, or this story, I guess it's up to the observer to decide how much of this so called outrage you've seen in the last several decades has been really based on true principles or just party politics. The press has promised to scrutinize Trump. Great. I expect that. The problem is they've lost their credibility with the rabble so the rabble are left with trying to figure out which institution is telling the truth or pulling our legs   I suppose the one positive to come from the Trump presidency is the left will now become concerned with things like fiscal responsibility, Executive Branch overreach, and interventionism in the Middle East. Not that I wouldn't welcome their  conversions once again to the aforementioned issues after taking a hiatus the last 8 years. But, better late than never, I guess

    • *snicker*   CPAC scrambles to control damage after attendees wave Russian flags during Trump speech Brad Reed
      24 Feb 2017 at 10:44 ET                        CPAC attendees wave Russian flags with the word "TRUMP" written on the front.   Staffers at CPAC quickly scrambled to confiscate Russian flags with the word “TRUMP” on the front that were being waved by attendees during President Donald Trump’s speech on Friday. The trouble began when some attendees took out pro-Trump flags to wave during the president’s speech that also happened to have the same white-blue-and-red striped pattern as Russian’s official flag.
