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.

    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me. 
    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days
