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.

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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
