DISABLED PERMIT

3 posts in this topic

I FRACTURED MY KNEE LAST SATURDAY IN A FALL AND AM IN A BRACE. MY FATHER IN LAW MESSED HIS KNEE UP 10 YEARS AGO AND MY UNCLE DID IT BACK A FEW YEARS AS WELL. THEY BOTH WERE ABLE TO PULL PERMITS TO HUNT BACK AT THE SHACK FROM A 4 WHEELER OR THE TRUCK. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY HAVE CHANGED THE LAW AND IT SAYS THAT NO PERMITS WILL BE GRANTED UNLESS IT IS A PERMANENT DISSABILITY. GUY AT THE DNR TOLD ME THERE WAS NO CHANCE I CAN PULL SUCH A PERMIT FOR A TEMPORARY INJURY NO MATTER WHAT TYPE OF DOCUMENTATION I HAD. I AM LESS THAN PLEASED WITH THAT ANSWER AND I GUESS I WILL HAVE TO DO THE BEST I CAN WITH WHAT I HAVE.

HAS ANYONE RUN INTO THIS NEW WRITING OF THE LAW AND GOTTEN AROUND IT?

I AM TRYING TO THINK OF WHAT MAKES MY TEMPORARY SITUATION ANY DIFFERENT THAN SOMEONE THAT HAD SOMETHING THAT WAS PERMANENT, BUT I CANT COME UP WITH ANYTHING. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

I do believe that you can have a statemant written by your doctor that you cannot do alot of walking and then contact your area CO. This way you can use a 4-wheeler to travel to and fro to your stand at any hour of the day and just not the hours that area allowed.

I do believe that the law was changed due to the fact that many people were trying to beat the law or play the game for a permit to shoot from a vechile. So, now its a law that is much more strict.

So many laws are created and put into place simply because so many people have tried to abuse the benefit that was there for those who really need it.

Simple abuse has created this.

thats what the guy told me. i told him that was an inaccurate statement of DNR policy as a whole and there is no reason that temporary permits cant be issued. for instance, a guy can apply to use a non magnifying scope for the muzzle loader if they can prove their eyesight is bad via a doctor. however, this permit is only good for two years and has to be renewed. why a temporary permit cant be issued for a temporary diabled person is a matter of they dont want to do it, not that they cant.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
