free deer licence for overseas veterans

6 posts in this topic

i just got an email back from the MN DNR. if you have served overseas in the past 24 months and you are a resident of MN you can obtain one free deer tag. to get it you can go to anywhere that sells deer tags, show them your discharge papers (your DD214 im assuming) and a MN drivers lisence. limit is one tag. you can also get a free small game license.

Well i really like it, my wife just returned home from 18 months in the sandbox, and she also thinks it is nice since this will be her first year deer hunting. The cost of the license isn't that much so it wouldn't break the bank, but I think the state has done a wonderful thing with this as a gift for all those veterans that missed the last two seasons cause they were fighting for their state and country.

They also changed the law about getting your hunters safety classes if you have served. You have to check the regs, but I believe it said that if you can show you were in the service and you are "range certified" then all you have to do is take the test and you are done. I have a buddy that is going to do that, and now he can do it online. I like that they aren't making these men and women jump through all the hoops. They obviously know how to handle a firearm, and hopefully people that have that kind of training understand ethics. They are also allowed to fish for free if I remember correctly. They just have to have their service papers on them as a license. Anyways, I think it is a good move.

My best friend flies back today from Afghanistan for a two week leave. Then it is back to the stone age.

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .
