Muzzleloader License

Recommended Posts

Was thinking of going muzzleloader hunting in a few weeks. After firearm hunting this weekend and talking to various people I do not think I will be going. I bought a regular firearm license this fall for firearm season. Now the way I am hearing it I needed to buy the All-Season License?? This would have been my first time trying it so I was in the thinking that a muzzleloader license was out there to buy. Humm, maybe not. Anyone know???

Russ,

You can only buy one firearms licence per year for deer. You are not eligible to purchace a muzzleloader licence this year. The all season licence would have been the way to go.

Thanks Tour. Pro 175. I guess I thought it was like buying a bow license, an individual thing. Oh well, next year I will buy the all-season license. I guess I have all summer to practice shooting it now, no excuses!
Well, I am out the door to sit in the stand.
Thanks

Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't you buy management tags and still muzzleload hunt with those? I know you are limited to a doe, but still good to get out and get the experience. Check into it. There still may be hope to go.

Good question on the mgmt tags. I would think that the management tag goes along with the firearm season you hunted in.

From what you are saying, I sounds like I could just buy a mgmt tag and hunt in any season. That just seems too odd to be true.

What if you didn't rifle hunt this year, but you have been bowhunting, can you still buy a muzzeloading license?

You can only buy one firearms licence per year. the management permits and intensive harvest permits pertain to the type of licence you bought, be it regular firearm or muzzleloader. The system the DNR came up with this year is a little confusing to say the least. If you have a copy of the 2003 Mn. hunting and trapping handbook it spells it out pretty good. you can also call the DNR {651} 296-6157 or {888} 646-6367 they are helpfull at answering your questions.

Good luck!
Paul

Ole,

Yes, you may buy a muzzleloader licence.

Just talked with DNR.. Being I have already bought a Firearms License for the Firearms season I can not buy one for muzzleloader. If I would NOT have bought my Firearms License for the regular season then I could have bought the same license but selected the Muzzleloader season. I asked about using MGMT or Intensive tags and he said NO... Being I do not have a Muzzleloader License I can not even use the MGMT or Intensive tags...

Thanks for all the replies!! Now I know for next year.

    • dont look so puzzled, I was correcting the stuff rick posted on fm as per your request.
    • From the left or they buck you off
    • revenge... LOL     But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better?   But for almost $200 bones more for an Ice 7 than an FL18, not sure how much better.     
    • Hummingbird Ice 7.  Yes please fix anything you don't understand that may bug you! 😃
    • 3 years ago I fell for the FLX28 from a FL18 and while I like the quiet I miss the 18. The 28 has a couple advantages but it has so much worthless dump on it my 18 did everything I wanted in a flasher. I sold the 18 to a friend and there's no way he's selling it back. JMHO but that 18 was the best ever. Like others I had a chance to buy at a very low price but still question the decision. As much as I'm tired of these flasher/auger posts this one is actually more about features more than brand bashing. Also a smart post by Rick to get some traffic going. I think this is still the best ice site but wonder why so many disappeared. The rules have been relaxed too, I haven't been banned for 2 or 3 years now. My reputation has a plus sign on it!  Eyeguy, time for some underwater photography?
    • for a ice???  then instead of than??  want me to edit???  ;lol
    • I heard they work a little better on small targets. 😁 But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better? 😮
    • youtube was down last night so wasnt able to upload video. Maybe I will get it done later today.   Here is an update on harvest:  
    • leech and others, i actually thought the same exact thing, the whole screen is used up with "history", trust me, I loved my marcum flasher and did not want to give into the 2D sonar; but after swapping it out of the boat from the summer use then using it all winter, I'm sold. Like getanet posted, you can still have the flasher screen with the helix so you dont have to use the 2d sonar view. hence my argument, smartphone (with all of the gadgets, summer, winter, etc) vs flip phones (flasher only).   but I rarely use the flasher portion on my helix and opt to the 2d sonar (by the way with 2d you still get the flasher/rts window in real time) and it's history. you can adjust the size of your history and RTS window on the helix as well, and I've found to have the history useful at times as well, if you look away for instance and see a mark on the history screen, you can be fore-warned of a nearby fish, with a flasher, you get that quick flash and its gone.    it took me some coaxing just like when I didnt want to switch out of my reliable dependable flip phone to a fancy smartphone, but I'm a convert now, and I still bring my Marcum with
