I got that taken care of already and a new shelter lic to. I'm debating on the trout lic. I don't fish for them that much. But they sure are tasty!

I work at a Gander Mountain that sells licenses. I remind all of my customers of regulations that could get them in trouble. I had about a half a dozen different groups that were going fishing for northerns after the season closed and didn't know it. Minnesota has some unusual regs, and ignorance isn't an excuse. Spend a few minutes with your reg book and make sure you are legal!

Went out for a couple of hours last night and as we were tearing down my nephew mentioned new license. It totally skipped ny mind that I had not gotten one, even talked about it last week. If there are any CO's reading this I'm guilty. You can bet I have one today though. Mine sure goes quick as you get older. Bill

The Basspoacher was out breaking the rules again. Maybe I will get my fish licence tommorrow. I don't see that it matters if you intend to buy one and can produce a lic. from the previous year.

I refuse to buy a new shelter lic. for late ice. It is ridiculous that portables have to be lic. in the first place and then to have to buy a lic. for about a month of fishing is wrong. The Shelter lic should run from Nov to May.

Bass Pastor,

The license that you buy this year for late ice is good all of the way thru almost all of next season. Just like your fishing license.

It does matter! It's called following the law. If you get a ticket, I would say it's well deserved, and it aint gonna be cheap.

Basspastor,
The new shelter license you buy is good until next March, so even after the ice melts this year its still good just about all of next winter too. I figure you are going to buy a new one next winter anyway, so why not buy it now so you have and can use your portable.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

I talked to a guy today that was out ice fishing yesterday and forgot all about buying a new license, and he went home with a nice little ticket from the game warden. Just a heads up to remind everyone. I don't want to see anyone have to spend some money for a ticket. Enjoy the late ice bonanza!

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

I'm going to the Sports show with the fam. tonight, can I get it at the DNR booth?

The lifetime liscence sounds good but the wife likes to fish on occasion so the family liscence is needed.

What to do, What to do?

Basspastor does have a point. I'm not advocating his boycott, but it is very inconvient to have the shelter license run out at the end of February. If you sell your shelter in the off-season, you've wasted the money for maybe a month of shelter use. I really can't think of a good reason for the license to run out when it does, other than maybe to save you a trip to your outfitter since your fishing license runs out at the same time.

Matt,
I would like to thank you for the reminder It was on my mind before I took a trip to the east coast last week, but as I was sitting here looking thru F.M. thinking about where I would be fishing next week I know see that I forgot a new license blush.gif
Thanks again, Tom (BD110)

MTB, when you sell it just remove the licence and put it on your new one.

BP stirring the pot again I see!

They should just abolish the shelter license, and i still dont see a reason why that the license you buy in november cant run the whole season, it would be easier for me. I guarantee they wouldnt be writing as many citations, but they won't let that happen, will they!

I agree that a shelter license should go all winter! Or better yet get rid of them all together!

Gentlemen, For those of you that have purchased any of your new licences, Did you notice that the MN DNR has "graciously" given licence holders ANOTHER "February 29"? Boy, Is that gonna be a b&[email protected] to enforce when February 29'05 doesn't happen !!! Apparently, THEY don't need to pay attention to the details like we should. Maybe, when it doesn't happen, We shouldn't buy a new licence until it does! I almost wonder if a judge wouldn't go along with it. By-the-way, With as much "FLUFF" as the DNR has at the top, Can't they afford a "PROOF READER"? Just another government employee with a "rubber stamp" that WE pay for!

Heres a question for you guys. How come the new shelter licenses have all your personal information on them ie; full name, address, ect. With all the problems of identity theft does it seem smart to have this on the outside of your house? What was wrong with just your drivers lic. and there tag that had no peronal data on it? I refused to put mine on the outside of my permenent house this year. I was waiting for a CO to check me and ask about it but i never was checked. GIve me your thoughts on this.

    • Horns make some otherwise normal people crazy. I'm not a horn hunter myself and that is one reason why.  
    • Dang what a shame not cool at all. I agree with leech. That’s more than enough acreage for more than one hunter to hunt. If he had the guts to go talk to the neighbor lady and she was fine with it then all is good. If this “kid” ( old guy) has an issue with it then he needs to grow up It’s not his land. Not many kids even hunt anymore so the fact that he wants to is great. Let him hunt some and if it continues to be an issue then maybe just tell him to pull the plug? I’m also dealing with some crazy neighbors right now that continue to feed. The CO has been out many times and they still do the same thing tickets have been given and there’s been some talking. I hate to “ tadle” on others but when people think they have rights that others shouldn’t have then that’s where a CO may come into play. Not saying you need to do this but if he comes barging to the door and demanding your son leave then maybe something needs to change and maybe he shouldn’t be allowed there. 
    • Leech- I thought about that same thing.  I do not know the guy or the family, so unsure of what the dynamic is there.    Thanks for the responses.  We are going to head over there this evening and talk with the lady. My plan is take it down either way.  If she says he can still hunt, and boot the other guy, or even let them both hunt i dont think if the experience is going to be anything we are looking forward to dealing with.  We have 10 acres at our house he's hunting too, and going to do some more knocking on doors.  I get being protective over his "spot". It just bothers me that he would be so unwilling to allow a 15 yr old to experience what he clearly loves to do.  Life will go on.  We will be in Montana in Oct, chasing elk and mule deer. He wont be missing out!  Those bucks are roaming the river bottom we live on, maybe the ultimate revenge will be having a chance to shoot one of them on our own land we are grooming for wildlife together.
    • Dang, I just moved Duff higher on the LIKE count!  😕
    • Beisswengers Hardware in New Brighton.  Top sales of Honda Gens and excellent service. Beisswengers
    • I would get a dlb ladder stand and sit with my kid as much as I could.  Don't let the dude bully you if you have the right to be there as well.  She may not know the age of this person if he had his kid go down there and get permission and he is really doing the hunting?  
    • He has permission from the landowner, let him hunt. If the 50 year old does anything to affect his hunt that is "hunter harassment" and he should be charged. 
    • Obviously the guy has "passion" for "his" hunting spot.  I would try to meet him face to face with your son and see if you couldn't reasonably discuss it and come to an agreement.  Possibly do it at the landowners home if you want to put him in his place.  This of course first goes with how you feel this gentleman would be towards a talk.  After all it is not his land and he can't just bully his way around.  Now if you feel he is psychotic then don't bother.  I have a chunk of land that I can't hunt (even though I have permission and all the rights to hunt it) because the neighbor is crazy enough that he will possibly hunt me and I don't need that feeling of being hunted.  Hope you can work things out!  People get funny when it comes to hunting land especially when they know there is a bigger deer in the area. 
    • Can anyone suggest a good place in the North Metro to get a Honda EU2000 tuned up? Been running problem free for 6 years so I figure it's time.   Thanks in advance for the help.
    • Tough deal on this one.    You've got to decide how much fight you want to put into this.  There are also a lot of life lessons here to teach your son just depends on which one you want to focus on.    In most circumstances I would start out by going to the landowner and explaining the issues and see if you can get it resolved.  However, with it being an 85 year old woman you'll have to decide if you want to drag her into it. I'd probably at least inform her of the issue so that she's aware of what is happening on her property and what type of person is out there.  She should at least know that much as the landowner  If she wants to make it right then so be it but I wouldn't push her on it.  Just leave it as a heads up and let her know your son will move on as to not cause trouble if she doesn't seem like she's got it in her to straighten things out.
