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

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
