Muzzle loader license question

5 posts in this topic

I was thinking about giving muzzle loader a try this year, but I took a small buck with my rifle, so I was wondering if I can still purchase a muzzle loader license. Also, do you have to designate a particular zone with muzzle loader or can you hunt statewide. Thanks much for any information you can pass on to me.

Unfortunately, you can't purchase a muzzleloader license.

To participate in this years muzzle loader hunt you would need to upgrade your license to an All Season License. You will be asked which area you hunt in but will be able to hunt in any area statewide where you can still hunt. Since you have already taken a buck you would be ineligible for any of the lottery areas. You can still hunt for does in managed and intensive harvest areas.

He can't upgrade because he filled his regular license during the gun season. Unfortunately, he's done for this year with a gun/muzzleloader. It's on page 17 of the regs.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
