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.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
