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.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
