Yes, but I don't think they'll be $36. I have heard no mention of that. I believe each regular license has been $26.

startribune has an acticle in yesterday's paper. there is also a link in one of the hunting forums. 26 per license all season was 78 bucks BOW, Rifle, Muzzleloader. 3x26=same price makes sense if you can buy you bow and get yoru big buck then you just go doe hunting and your not out 76 bucks

I don't like the idea of the all-season liscense going away, and heres why: with the all season, you get three tags. If you did not get a deer in the rifle season, the tags were still valid for muzzleloader season, and the rest of the archery season. If they do away with all season and we have to buy a liscence for bow/rifle/muzzleloader, each liscense will have one tag; so if you don't get a deer with the rifle, the tag that came with your rifle liscense is worthless; if you want to take two deer in muzzleloader season you will have to buy a bonus tag, and wind up spending more money that you would have with just the all-season liscense.

2007 prices

firearms $26 + firearms-smokepole$26 + bonus good for both$13 = $65

All-season was $78

If'n ya don't plan on arching.

That's true in a two deer area. If you're in a 5 deer area you have the potential need to buy two more tags if you want to take 5.

I beleave the reason for doing this was to make it easyer for people to figure out. The other reason was because you could only buy one firearms licence. If you hunted regular firearms and didnt shoot a deer you couldnt leagaly purchase and hunt in the muzzle loader season. This way you could if you choose to.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
