Duluth Bowhunter Education Class

7 posts in this topic

FYI, there is another Bowhunter Education Class scheduled for March 12, 19, and 26 at Gander Mountain in Duluth. This class wasn't listed until recently and I was the first one to sign up (they will cancel it if more people don't sign up). The next closest one to Duluth is in Carlton in April I believe.

Anyway, get the word out. If you plan on hunting in the Duluth City Hunt you need this class.

I'm planning on being there. It seems to me I may have taken an advanced bowhunting class years ago. I don't know if that would qualify me for the Duluth city hunt or not. Here is a link to the DNR website with info on statewide bowhunter education classes. I see the 3/12 date but not the others you mentioned cpin, maybe they haven't gotten around to posting them yet.

When I called GM and registered, I was told the class is 3 nights, the 12th, the 19th, and the 26th. Hopefully, I'm wrong, because I really don't want to spend 3 nights on this.

We have some people from Duluth coming to the one at Chilakoot Bowhunters on March 22. This is about a 2 hour drive from Duluth.

The post for this is just a few down from this one.

We could maybe get you all together to car pool for this one day class.

Good idea, but I don't think I would do it. I don't want to kill a weekend on this thing, nor do I want to drive two hours to get to it...

I drove six hours round trip for mine a few years ago. It was worth it to me! There's 10 deer that wish I never did it though.

Take the Bow Ed class even if they may be an inconvience for you at the time, it'll pay off in the long run. Quite a few other states require it if you want to bow hunt them. I'm hoping Minnesota will require it in the future.

Per cpinkert 1st post, you folks that are taking the class just to get into the Duluth hunt, as an fyi, sounds like any new hunters are going to be put on a waiting list to get into the hunt. Heard the hunt is maxed out with hunters. Just relaying what I heard so, if it's true, you don't get too disappointed if you can't get in right away.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
