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.

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.

      Leeches under a slip bobber drifted over a small shelf off a bigger flat.  Bobber set at 8.5 feet.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:
