Hunting Licenses and BOW

6 posts in this topic

The way I read the DNR regs. is that since I was born before Dec. 31, 1979, I don't need a hunting license.

Another VERY cool thing I found on the DNR HSOforum was called BOW-Becoming an Outdoor Woman. Here's the link! I copied this from the webpage too:

"Becoming an Outdoors-Woman in Minnesota is a program which focuses on the teaching of outdoor skills usually associated with hunting, fishing, and other outdoor pursuits. It is designed primarily for woman 18 years of age and older. The B.O.W. program offers activities through half-day clinics and weekend workshops. This program is for you if you meet one of the following:

You have never tried the activity but would like the opportunity to learn some basic skills of an activity.

You consider yourself a beginner who hopes to learn the basic skills.

You consider yourself an intermediate but would like to improve your skills or try your hand at some new activities.

You consider yourself advanced in outdoor skills and would like to acquire additional techniques.

You are just looking for the camaraderie of like-minded individuals and an opportunity for a wonderful getaway from the daily stresses."

Just some info if anyone's interested since I've never heard of this program before. Has anyone else attended any of these clinics or events?

As far as becoming an outdoors-woman I was that before I got married --and then he said "Don't you have some housework to do??

Every woman should know how to hunt or handle a gun and fish - you never know when those skills will be needed- kinda like cooking & sewing!!

You are absolutely right about the actual license-I do need to purchase one if I want to hunt. I don't need the gun safety class in order to get the license though.

So then like my mother believed, every man should know how to sew and cook, cause he never knows when he might need those skills. Both my brothers knew how to sew and cook, but neither of them hunted.

Good for your mom. Its too bad that alot of mothers never teach the sons that, the basic survival skills, it just another job we wives have to do I guess. Although I've taught mine where he can get along pretty good without me. UH OH , anyway it seemed like a good thing at the time!

    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
