2006 DNR Conservation License Plate Design Contest

68 posts in this topic

I just saw this - wouldn't it be nice if we got a FISH design for the third plate design?

http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/contests/license_plate.html

If there are fish artists out there, I'd ask that they consider submitting entries for the contest. so I can change out my deer plate for a fish plate! :-)

Id like to see a walleye one, that would be sweet if they would show like when it comes down to the top ten drawings.

In Mn. its walleyes and thats what I would like to see on Mn. plates. When people come to Mn. to go fishing they want walleye. A Muskie may not be bad though.

Not having the state fish (walleye for those who aren't sure) on the plates would be a travesty.

what would be wrong with a native brookie on a plate? they're a lot more colorful and pretty than a walleye. I think they taste better too tongue.gif

Also, a lot of their habitat is at risk in the SE due to current agricultural practices and development.

Randy, the only crummy thing about this contest is that I can't submit my brookie artwork as an entry since I'm on the ineligible list... frown.gif

I gave it a try and sent one in with the state fish on it...a walleye. Come on, if its a state plate it should have our state fish on it! Had to overnight it to make it there on time.

I think it turned out really well. If I make it into the finals I'll need you fellow FM'er friends to lend some support on the on-line poll.

Leech21,

would it be possible for you to post a picture of it? I am interested to see how it turned out. When is the online poll?

Here it is. It lookes a lot better in person then from a scan. The left side is cut off a little because it didn't completely fit into my scanner. Tell me what you guys think!

Sorry, I think yours is better than all of those Leech.

Not to offend anyone if they designed one of them......I think they all stink.

Is that a walleye jumping out of the water???

I hope that's not supposed to be a Great Blue Heron, if so, it's the wrong color.

The Moose design is almost identical to the previous deer one.

ok that's enough negativity.

Sorry you didn't make it Leech frown.gif

I agree but since there has been a lot of hype about the timberwolf over the years, I have to admit that is a pretty cool design.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
