DISABLED PERMIT


SFBOY

Recommended Posts

I FRACTURED MY KNEE LAST SATURDAY IN A FALL AND AM IN A BRACE. MY FATHER IN LAW MESSED HIS KNEE UP 10 YEARS AGO AND MY UNCLE DID IT BACK A FEW YEARS AS WELL. THEY BOTH WERE ABLE TO PULL PERMITS TO HUNT BACK AT THE SHACK FROM A 4 WHEELER OR THE TRUCK. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY HAVE CHANGED THE LAW AND IT SAYS THAT NO PERMITS WILL BE GRANTED UNLESS IT IS A PERMANENT DISSABILITY. GUY AT THE DNR TOLD ME THERE WAS NO CHANCE I CAN PULL SUCH A PERMIT FOR A TEMPORARY INJURY NO MATTER WHAT TYPE OF DOCUMENTATION I HAD. I AM LESS THAN PLEASED WITH THAT ANSWER AND I GUESS I WILL HAVE TO DO THE BEST I CAN WITH WHAT I HAVE.

HAS ANYONE RUN INTO THIS NEW WRITING OF THE LAW AND GOTTEN AROUND IT?

I AM TRYING TO THINK OF WHAT MAKES MY TEMPORARY SITUATION ANY DIFFERENT THAN SOMEONE THAT HAD SOMETHING THAT WAS PERMANENT, BUT I CANT COME UP WITH ANYTHING. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

I do believe that you can have a statemant written by your doctor that you cannot do alot of walking and then contact your area CO. This way you can use a 4-wheeler to travel to and fro to your stand at any hour of the day and just not the hours that area allowed.

I do believe that the law was changed due to the fact that many people were trying to beat the law or play the game for a permit to shoot from a vechile. So, now its a law that is much more strict.

So many laws are created and put into place simply because so many people have tried to abuse the benefit that was there for those who really need it.

Simple abuse has created this.

thats what the guy told me. i told him that was an inaccurate statement of DNR policy as a whole and there is no reason that temporary permits cant be issued. for instance, a guy can apply to use a non magnifying scope for the muzzle loader if they can prove their eyesight is bad via a doctor. however, this permit is only good for two years and has to be renewed. why a temporary permit cant be issued for a temporary diabled person is a matter of they dont want to do it, not that they cant.

      We couldn’t put a pattern together this week. The few keepers and the one 25” slot fish we got were caught moving slowly up and down reef edges in 15-24 feet. Nothing off the edge and nothing on the tops. Very tough fishing, found bugs and baitfish top to bottom in the water column almost everywhere we went. Should’ve just switched to bass.

      Found a spot this morning and picked up 5. Lost over a dozen as well. 3 of us fishing and their inexperience hurt.  Hope the wife doesn't see this.😁   Found them on a hump about 17 ft. in big bay south end.  If I moved off it by 20 ft nothing. I think the best plan is to troll slowly and if you get 1 stop and jig it. Leeches or crawlers both worked.

      Skeeters are big and nasty at vermilion.  Any bigger I might start a chocolate covered deep fried mosquito for state fair food.

      Maybe his blood is not as tasty as mine? Just got back from a run, the deer flies were thick, I do have hair of a Greek god so they get lost in there 😅

      The mighty Mississippi has finally dropped enough that fishing isn't so much work again😂.  Been getting a good mix of river species this past week...lots and lots of bass though. Have even gotten a few real close to 20in.... Still looking for that first legit beast yet this summer.    Hey Leechy...... If you line up that big boulder and the hospital you pretty much got my area😁😂. 5-6 ft of water, fishies using the big rocks as a break from the current.  Crayfish and minnow colors with Ned rigs
