Wife thinking of getting into bowhunting. What do they teach you at these classes? I'm pretty sure my wife has to get her firearms safty certificate to bow hunt but she has no intentions on shooting a gun says there to loud and she'll stick to the bow. Wondering if this class takes care of it.

She still needs the gun safety. This class does go over lots of good topics related to bowhunting from safety to scents to equipment to set-ups, etc. It is not a required coarse to bowhunt in Minnesota, though it is required in several other states. (So. Dakota, Montana, Colorado are some)

DonBo, I would like to know where it clearly defines in the MNDNR rule book that you need firearms safety to go bowhunting.

You can find it on page 36 in the 2008 regulations book

I'm not absolutely sure, but directly underneith the box you marked, in the Big Game/Archery column, it says "required".

The #2 area you marked is for 16 & 17 year olds only, and I don't believe it pertains to big game.

You'd better check before you try to get her a license this fall and find out you can't.

No, the 18 years and older also has a (2) next to it, and the box under it is for "license requirements" as listed on the top of the page.

I know for a fact you don't need it to hunt archery as I have witnessed people do it and it's perfectly legal.

--Not trying to make a big arguement here, but just getting the facts straight.

If you know for sure, then there's no issue. Thanks for the clarification.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention I thought for sure my wife had to get her certificate. I even started looking at classes for her. I'm going to call the DNR to make sure but I was confused on that graph with the 2 top boxes for what was what

The top box is for the FAS, and the 2nd box is license requirements. I will admit, when I first started looking into it, I was a little confused also.

I got a hold of DNR and they said yOU don't need it for archery need it only if you go with the firearms so my wife is good to go Thank you very much for bringing that to my attention I really appreciate it.

      Oh I forgot to mention is was b*#%hing cold.  Minus 33 Saturday morning and -36 on Sunday morning.  We had to leave one sled behind at the cabin on Saturday and it took forever to get the Solo started on the auger.  Maybe time for an electric.     Nice niece catching day Pro-V!!!
    • Mike89
      more slush for you!!! 
    • PRO-V
      My niece got a 28" walleye and a 44" sturgeon the same day a couple days ago.

      That is what we experienced too.  Three of us were up, fished Thurs, Fri, and Sat.  Lots of little ones, sniffers, the type that keep you busy, wear your arm out jigging on.  We only kept 15" eyes and 14" sauger or better and ended up just short of our limit.  Many 14" eyes released along with 13" sauger.  Others indicated a tough bite as well.  There was one group in the cleaning shack that had some, maybe a 1/4th of their catch, in the 16 to 19 inch range.  We fish with fatheads and some frozen emeralds.  Ice thickness-wise, the auger head was just above the shavings pile, so the ice is growing quickly.  Snow on the lake is hard.  Good Luck.

      😫 boy i feel the love here!!!!!!!! interseted to hear what this additional snow did to the lakes!!!!
    • CJH
      That is correct.  We were just up at LOW out of Zippel Bay and as far as we could tell, eveybody up there was out of live shiners.  We were able to stop on the way and pick up live emerald shiners @ Big Dicks Bait Shop in Kelliher.  This was on the 17th, so if you go that route, I'd call first to make sure they still had any.  Fishing was a little slow for us, but it was right when the cold front came screaming in, good luck!

      Thanks for reply, problem is red door isnt letting anyone with wheel house or skid house out to the flat or past the heave,yet. So everyone is kind of pilled up on the first/second breaks. I am thinking once they start allowing more travel it will start to thin out by me. I may give it another week or so and see how it looks. 
    • gunner55
      Yeah, you better stay home, smurfy. 😉 Probably catch more. 😀  We got  a lot here too. NOT!!!  2 1/2 - 3" at most  
    • Parmer
      The key is emerald shiners. The ones you can get in the cities are not the same as emeralds up there. Frozen ones work great for jigging.
