trailer plates

11 posts in this topic

why does minnisota give you a sticker for the tongue of your boat and other trailers. This seems to be a problem to law enforcement in other states that do not have this or know about it. I came up here from ark. 10 yrs. ago and when i take my boat out of state i ussually always get pulled over for not haveing a plate on back of the trailer. I'm thinking about registering my boat back to ark. so the states south of mn. will quit stopping me wanting to know where my plate is.

I'd rather buy a lifetime sticker, than plates and tabs every few years. How about you get those other states to get rid of their plates?

Yeah. Maybe we're just a little more progressive.

MN is progressive? LOL!!! Regressive is more like it.

How about not requiring a license for boat trailers like other states? Another novel concept this state cannot grasp....

i am confused, if other states dont require a license, why is the tongue tag an issue?

Besides it is a lot harder to take the decal off of the tongue then it is to take plates off a trailer in a crowed parking lot. shocked

A few years back, before they had the lifetime sticker, I got a ticket at a boat lot for now having a plate on my tailer....I had to go and get a duplicate and present my receipt from the original. The lady at the court house said that they were getting many cases of this happening, and most were due to the plates being stolen, not lost. frown

regressive is more like it. Mn. will probably tell me i can't smoke in my boat next. Anyway,the tags or stickers are really an issue i guess, but yes all staes should be one way or the other, then maybe no confusion.

I think "progressive" is the new name for "liberal" . Minnesota is that.

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!

    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
