License question?

11 posts in this topic

I remember last year they extended the time when a fishing license expires until the end of april but it was not on the license. Now I just checked my license to see if that held true this year and it is contraditory. It says Expires FEB 28th 2009 and then below that it says Eff. 03/01/2008-4/30/2009. So which is it feb 28th or april 30 that it expires. With it printed that way I could see one conservation officer giving a person a ticket and another not giving a ticket for fishing between feb 28th and april 30. Anyone know for sure what is the correct date of expiration.

Anyone know anything about trout stamps? It says that it expires Feb 28th and I don't see anywhere on it where it gives a different date like the fishing license.

Check the DNR HSOforum, all the answers to your questions are there. I looked at it last night and if I remember right, all stamps/licenses expire April 30th.

    • After a quarter century in the construction sector I learned you should take your budget, double it and add another 10%. That gets most people in the ballpark anyway lol. 
    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
