This is Minnesota. The home of the "we let everyone hunt". First weekend is okay; not like the great Dakotas.

Note, if you purchase your license on or after season opener it doesn't become valid for two days.

A license is valid on the second day after you purchase it.

If you buy your license on sunday it is not legal until tuesday morning. There is no time or number of hours, just remember the second day after buying.

A license bought before the opener is valid on opening day. A license bought during the season u have to wait a "Day". A day in the regs means midnight to midnight. So if u bought a license opening day, at anytime, it would not be valid until monday morning and so on. Hope this helps.

I have been told that this does not apply to bonus permits and that you can use bonus the days you buy them.

KPP is correct. Bonus permits are valid immediately only if your license is already valid. Best to get your license now. No point waiting in line next Friday night.

Only if you are from the Dakotas and you feel bad about making us wait for second weekend... grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I don't mind waiting, especially during waterfowl season, I am from ND and the main flight and the big boys don't get down for 2-3 weeks after opener anyway...I say welcome to MN and hunt away

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
