Legal Question

Recommended Posts

Browning83

I was wondering if it is legal to have two guns in your layout blind at once? One of which is cased and unloaded....this is more of a back up gun because my auto gets a lot of dust and jams up a lot.

Yes, it's legal.

Common sense tells me it should be legal.

I think this subject came up last year. A guy was asking if it was legal to have two loaded guns in his duck blind. Can't remember how it turned out though.

I asked the Co in Wi where we hunt a lot and he said it is legal to have it uncased and loaded too. The only thing that might cause a problem is if there is a person in the blind that does not have a license. So maybe someone just taking pictures or video might come into question.

Heat the barrels up!

I asked last year and in fact you can have two guns loaded at the same time. Your good to go!

I asked because I wanted to have something available for cripples. The CO said "thats smart - go ahead"

I got the same response as tealitup did with the execption that only three shells in each gun . its awsome when those divers come in after your first gun is empty just pick up #2 and start blasten away .....

You can have as many guns in the blind as you want to carry.But they ALL have to have plugs!!!And loaded with steel shot as well.

I was checked by the warden last year out in the sod fields, had the trusty 10 ga long tom along with my Browny.

He just checked the plug and clip and on to the lisences and steel shot.

The only place that I know it is not legal is Canada. You can not have more than one gun in your blind per person at a time cased or uncased. I know this post was meant for Minnesota but I thought I would throw that out there.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...

      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.

      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.

      Get some sea foam in that gas tank and run ‘er!  I can’t tell you exactly where it’s gummed up, but it is.  It’ll take a tank and maybe two but it should clear up. Or, take the carb back off soak it and clean every oriface you can find by poking and blowing compressed air through all the holes.  Put a new carb kit on it and reinstall. Whichever way you prefer should work. Mix your gas with 100:1 Amsoil next time, especially if you let it sit with gas in it over the summer.  I run about 75:1 and have gotten away without gummed up carbs when forgetting to clear the gas from last year - like today.  First day starting the gas auger.  I found out it wasn’t stores empty like I normally do. Took about 10 pulls but she came around and did fine on the lake today.  I WAS annoyed to find gas in it but I have no one to blame but me.
