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.

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.

      bump give ice reports if you can. just don't go on any ice to give a report, be safe.   I know my 300 acre lake in aitkin froze  over last weekend, but ice depth could vary greatly this time of year.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Anyone know of the lake is froze over? Or how much ice is on the lake if it is?

      I’ll be out looking tomorrow... Have a spot in mind that I’m optimistic about. Which direction from downtown were you?

      Got the hangers today and really like them. I did have to drill a slot so they would work but easy peasy. The metal can be bent a bit to get the angle wanted. Moved the turkey fans to a different room and centered the 3 euros. I like the way it ended up.     New Age Taxidermy Head Honcho European Mounts on Amazon Smile

      The holidays are coming to the Governor’s Residence! Foresters from the Department of Natural Resources and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota harvested the official state Christmas tree Nov. 16 from the Nemadji State Forest. The tree, which is approximately 60 years old, will decorate the Governor’s Residence in St. Paul. “This year’s tree is absolutely gorgeous—tall, full, and almost perfectly shaped,” said Jean Mouelle, the DNR forester who selected this year’s tree. “It’s an impressive example of a balsam fir.” Each year, DNR staff chooses the Governor’s Christmas tree from one of Minnesota’s 59 state forests. Although the tree is always harvested on the Friday before Thanksgiving, the search for the perfect tree begins months beforehand. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. The tree also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped, and where foresters can easily remove it from the forest and load it onto a trailer. The tree will be set up at the Governor’s Residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, at 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 19, and lit Monday, Nov. 26. Information about viewing the tree can be found at www.mn.gov/admin/governors-residence/tours/schedule. Half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota each holiday season, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees provide an environmentally friendly decorating option during the holidays because they store carbon during their lifespan and can be chipped for mulch when the season is over.

      Should get the hangers today and will post info. I see that mountain Mikes has them also. Built to fit in the hole in back. The ones I ordered are for the bone skull so hopefully, dont have to send them back. Just got Marks done.  16 inch inside. Mine is 15 1/4. Not monsters but pretty neat. Marks biggest so far.

      I typically mount with a wire hidden behind the brain cavity routed through holes in the plaque to a screw behind the plaque.   Curious about this angled hanger, it tilts the nose of the skull away from the wall? Do you have a link? I like that idea, might have to rig something up when my euro is ready.

      Was around both lakes yesterday and they appear to be locked up. Shouldn't be long now.
    • eyeguy 54
      I hate when I am walking back to vehicle and they have roosted partway and I didnt know it, then they explode and I freak. LOL

      Bow hunting the other day I had a flock of about 20 come in at last light to roost in a nearby tree. No way a deer was going to come in with all that racket! It was kind of odd to see them hop from tree to tree but at the same time cool to see! Graceful and quiet they were not!
