Legal Question

9 posts in this topic

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.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
