Senate Bill 2308 - ndgfd Permanent Registration Number

Recommended Posts

Folks,                                                                                                           January 26, 2017

 

I've got some great news – Senate Bill 2308 - “legis.nd.gov/assembly/65-2017/documents/17-0983-01000.pdf” would allow the use of a NDGFD issued registration number to identify an unoccupied fishhouse or a coyote snare; OR a name, address, and/or telephone number (as currently required). When the Century Code is amended, you will have the freedom to choose what is best for you.

 

This wouldn't be possible without Senators Shawn Vedaa (D6 Velva), Howard Anderson (D8 Turtle Lake); David Clemens (D16 West Fargo), and Jordan Kannianen (D4 Stanley); and Representatives Dick Anderson (D6 Willow City) and Craig Johnson (D6 Maxbass) introducing this legislation. Thanks to each of those legislators and to everyone who has contacted their respective legislator so far for their support. It's good to send a reminder as there is now a bill number for identification.

 

So what's next? Senate Bill 2308 will be referred to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee for a hearing in the next couple of weeks. After the hearing, it will be voted on by the full Senate. In late February, all Senate bills will pass over to the House. The bill will then be referred to the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee for a hearing and then to the full House for a vote.

 

Please continue to let folks know about this legislation – friends; relatives; co-workers; fish and wildlife clubs; businesses that have anything to do with fishing (sell bait, fishhouses; and fishing equipment); guides and lodges; fellow trappers; or any other person or entity that may benefit by this legislation. It is important that the momentum continues to build. Spread the word, make your contacts, and thank you for your help!

 

Contact your respective Senator and Representative and ask that they vote in favor of Senate Bill 2308. Use this link to identify your legislators and their contact information - “legis.nd.gov/assembly/65-2017”. A quick and easy statement asking for their support is all that's required.

 

Background information supporting Senate Bill 2308 - utilize a registration number issued by the Department to identify unoccupied fishhouses and snares in lieu of North Dakota Century Code requirements for name, address, and/or telephone number.

 

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department licensing provides an opportunity for individuals to view their licensing, lottery, and registrations on their page. Go to the North Dakota Game and Fish Department page homepage at “www.gf.nd.gov”; click on “My Account” in the upper right hand corner; complete and verify the “Customer Identification”. Welcome to your “My Account” page.

 

Registration requirements currently exist for darkhouse spearfishing. This registration is required annually and the registration number changes from year to year. You can register for darkhouse spearfishing from your “My Account” page (see center of page).

 

North Dakota Century Code (NDCC 20.1-06-07.) requires unoccupied fishhouses be identified by the owners name and address or telephone number.

 

North Dakota Century Code (NDCC 20.1-07-03.1.) requires a person using a snare to identify it with the person's name, address, and telephone number.

 

There has been interest within the outdoor community to have a means of identification for both fishhouses and snares that does not broadly proclaim the name, address and/or telephone number of the fishhouse owner or person utilizing the snare. Other benefits include ease by which the number would be displayed on the fishhouse, or engraved on a plastic or metal tag for snares (one line with six numbers versus three lines of characters, numbers, and spaces); reduce repetitiveness in the event of address or telephone number change; anonymity from harassment, damage, destruction or theft; and each person having their own personalized permanent number. North Dakota Game and Fish Department personnel (law enforcement) could easily cross reference the number to a name within their automated record keeping system.

 

Previously, the North Dakota Game and Fish Department did not have the means to assign a personalized permanent number to any one individual. The ability to do that now exists, and when this legislation is passed and the NDCC amended, the Department will make registration available. It is a one-time registration and will result in the assignment of a personalized permanent number to an individual. By authority of the Century Code, this number may be used for identification purposes. The implementation of this bill requires no funding whatsoever. With everyone's help, we can get this done this session. Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

    • The whitewater rafting was decent.  Low level class 1-3 but still enjoyable.  River and Trail Outfitters at Harpers Ferry.  Now sitting in the Guide House, a local favorite established by one of the veteran rafting guides.  Having a Duck Rabbit Brewery Milk Stout and ready to dig in to a fine bowl of crab mac.   Yes. Yes I did fall out of the raft in one of the rapids.  It’s was pretty fun!
    • How many people are still fishing out of a 14 foot Lund?  
    • Seems kinda pointless for about 99.9999% of people that are just fishing some dumb lake in their 14 foot lund.   
    • Whats everyone's thoughts on this new feature? https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/ais-in-the-boating-app/  
    • What you are doing is even better than what they hope to achieve with the law. I do the same thing. My minnows never see lake water while in my possession except while riding on a hook. It is not possible to transfer invasives via my minnows or minnow container unless they came from the bait shop and the result would be same either way.   This brings up a good question. Aren't minnows trapped in lakes and streams? They could contain microscopic versions of invasive species and therefore be responsible for transporting them to every lake where the minnows are used. Even those raised in rearing ponds are potential threats if the rearing ponds become infected.   Unfortunately, it is impractical (not impossible) for a CO to know that my minnows have not been in the lake. He would have to take my word for it. As a result, unless they catch me taking my aerated minnow cooler from my boat to my truck, ....  
    • I see they got Eddie & Cron back last night but now Buxton's out again. It didn't help though as they played a sloppy game & beat themselves.
    • Work related travel.  Never been to the northeast before and wanted to experience it as much as possible so I drove and took a couple extra days.   Original plans had me touring some stuff in the DC area but its been a little more difficult and expensive to wander about than I’d hoped.   Get me to some water!!!
    • Most of the fish I've caught out of the abyss were caught just above the thermocline or high in the water column (1'-15' down). A friend of mine once caught a 31" hog walleye on a top raider over 100'+ of water. That's just one of the many hogs to come into my boat that were 0'-5' under the surface in mega deep water. So, keep your lures above the kill zone on slot lakes and you'll still get bit.
    • To young to be retired whats up with all this Wandering?  Didn't you just come back from Musky fishering? 🤔
    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
