Upgrade Firearm Deer License?

6 posts in this topic

Maybe I just missed the boat on this one, but I was checking out the MN DNR website to see what exact date the firearm season is this year and found out that it is November 3rd. Then I noticed that November 2nd was listed as the last day to "upgrade firearm deer license". Any idea on what this "upgrade" consists of?

I think the upgrade is reffering to if you had a Archery License and you want to "upgrade" it to a firearms license you have to pay the difference, plus a little bit for their trouble. I could clearly be wrong here. I have always gotten the all season license, but this year I am going to a lottery area for the first time. I realized I don't even know how to apply for a doe permit because I have never had to do it before. I have been able to shoot 5 does a year since I started hunting and definately never had to apply.

You can't uprade an archery license to a firearms license. You'd just have to buy one. I think you could probably upgrade archery to all-season, otherwise they're talking about upgrading a regular firearm license to either a multi-zone or an all-season.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
