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!

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
