Hunting Licenses and BOW

Recommended Posts

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!

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
