License Help....WalleyDan?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I having a problem getting a fishing license for a German exchange student living with me. The problem isn't on the DNR side, it's on the bait shop side. I can't find a store that knows how to deal with a passport, while at the same time issuing a MN resident license. I talked to the DNR and they told me that their computers are set up for this issue, I just can't find a clerk that knows how to set it up. According to the DNR he needs a resident license, not an out state/country one. I was wondering if anybody had any ideas. I live in the Deerwood area and was planning on travelling up WalleyeDan's way this weekend to pick up tickets for the ice fishing contest. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

Sorry, I am not walleydan, but...

I would try going to the DMV, they should be able to help you out. At least they should have access to the right resources.

Sorry, I'm not Walleydan either (I'm Walleyedan). I will talk with Sherree at S&W Bait and see what she has to say. We have had people from all over Creation out fishing and there have only been a couple of times where they weren't able to get a license. I would guess she would be able to handle it. But I will talk to her and get back to you.

I just talked with Sherree, it sounds like he will have to get a non-resident fishing license and she can do that by using his passport.

Dan- I could be wrong on this... and maybe its different for people from across the sea.. but I thought students could get resident fishing licence?

Loopholes created by the new system make it tough for

exchange students. frown.gif Should call the DNR office and ask about it.

The regulations do state that a (non resident) student spending a full term school year may purchase a resident license with proof of student status.

If your exchange student gets a student ID card from the school they are attending and shows it to a license distributor, that should work. I know when I went to college in WI, all I had to do was show them the school ID card and my driver’s license. They used the drivers license number as their hunter ID number and I got all instate privileges. MN may be different (and obviously more difficult) but it is worth a shot.

Dan, sorry for the typo. According to the DNR, he does qualify for a resident license. As stated before, I just can't find a clerk that can process it. I'll be in Brainerd this weekend, have to take my VPG back to Gander and get a new one (short in the battery line). I'll pop up to S&W to get my contest tickets and talk with Sherrie.

The folks at Gander in Brainerd/Baxter can help you as long as you get there Friday during the day. They said they'd need to call for a lic# from the DNR office. Bring as much ID as possible.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota snowmobile trail conditions are in good shape. The Baudette trail is great north of Knight Island. Walleye action heats up in periods of stable weather. The best catching is happening in 21-25ft, with the most productive method being a dead-stick beside an actively jigged rattle bait such as a buckshot or rippin’ rap. Glow white/pink is out producing other colors. The late ice bite can be phenomenal on Lake of the Woods, ice permitting we will have houses out through the end of the month!   Canadian fishing is recommended via snowmobile as they are light enough not to drop into the slush as easy as other track vehicles. Crappies are still filling buckets and walleye are actively feeding on reef break lines and points. Walleye season is open through April 14th.    Sunset Lodge
    • Stuff is getting hard to find so best load up on ammo I'd you find it.  Many have rebates going now so that helps some.   I haven't shot the new Feferal TSS shot yet but guys that have report excellent patterns and downrange energy.  Luke Don mentioned 45 yards is doable depending on your gun's pattern.  Two springs ago my dad dumped a big Tom at 54 yards, (misjudged the yardage and bird was working away) with the federal heavyweight in 6 shot with his 20 gauge.  I'm not advocating for shooting those distances, but it's a testmate to how far this ammo has come. 
    • I've been seeing them in corn fields and around home owner homes.
    • if you have gone through a set of carbides in 1000 miles you definitely need to change them now as you are getting a lot of wear 
    • Just a reminder this Seminar is tonight.
    • I did shoot the RX-1 but there was more hand vibration and a little louder. RX-3 did not have any of that . Also could just be in my head but felt smoother in the draw too.
    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
