MN REGGS???

8 posts in this topic

Does it say any were in the regs that you can only have one gun in the field with you. I have always thought that you can only have one gun with you but just I have never seen it in the book saying you cant have more than one gun.

You can bring as many guns as you want as long as they are all legal for waterfowl.

What do you bring more guns 4? Shoot the 3 shells in 1, pick up the other & shoot those 3, or just incase something goes wrong with your other 1?

I personally usually have too much gear to consider bringing in a 2nd gun. Though if I had a big duck boat, I might start considering bringing in a cased and unloaded spare gun, just in case.

I sometimes bring two guns. One for ducks and the other loaded with goose loads. That way I don't wear out the shells switching them all the time. smile.gif

exactly what i wanted to know! I thought for some reason that you could not do that so i never did and i was shell changing every 5 seconds until i just say screw it and shoot that teal with 3 1/2 T shot. i hunt mostly fields so extra room is no problem. the only problem i see is having to clean two gun now.

I have a short walk to my blind. I take my 12 gauge loaded with steel BB's for ducks. I have my 10 gauge loaded with some kind of "hevi-shot" for geese. I don't have to monkey around swapping shells when I hear that h-ooonnk.

Most guys who bring 2 guns load one for ducks and one for geese.

I wish I had that option. Got my 870, do everything shotgun, and thats it. grin.gif

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
