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.

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
