Do I need a goose stamp??

Recommended Posts

Muskieguy

I will be duck hunting for the first time this year. If a goose were to fly by can I shoot it? Or do I need some sort of goose license?

You need a goose stamp for early season and late season goose.
For standard waterfowl season, blast away with your normal license. No stamp needed specifically for geese.

You need to buy the state duck stamp and the federal stamp. Both are required to hunt ANY waterfowl in the state of MN. People call them duck stamps and goose stamps but in reality, they are state and federal stamps. You NEED both to hunt ducks or geese! Good luck!

You don't need a special stamp. All you need is the state and federal stamps.
For early and late goose you don't need any stamp but you do need the permit. There isn't a stamp for it. The permit will print out on your license as long as you ask for the early or late goose permit.

It should say on your lic. if you are HIP registered.They ask a series of questions when you buy your lic. not stamps.YOU MUST BE HIP CERTIFIED TO HUNT MIGRATORY WATERFOWL.

You get HIP certified when you buy your small game liscense. It's a series of question regarding your waterfowl harvest and hunting from the preious season. If you didn't do it when you got your liscense you can go back to a liscensing agent and have it added. There might be a small fee for doing it after the fact. I'm not sure about that.

You are suppose to be HIP registered upon purchasing your licenses. However, some places are not good about completing these so be sure that it is completed. They should ask you a few questions regarding migratory bird hunting. When you get your print out of licenses, it will state on there that you are HIP registered. If it does not say it, you might not be HIP registered so be sure to check! Last year I bought everything but they did not HIP register me. Got a warning from the CO for this!

You have to love MN hunting rules. There are all these posts on here and I would guess that nobody is 100% positive that they are completely right. The book is like 300 pages long and still not that clear. On my first hunt in ND I was looking over there flyer-four pages at that time, and I knew exactly what I could hunt, when, where, and how. Why does MN have to be so confusing. Every time I get checked by a CO I get nervous. I have never done anything illegal or even tried to do anything illegal that I am aware of, but with all the confusing language in the game laws, chances are I could have gotten written up for something.

As for the question. It is my understanding that you need a federal waterfowl, state waterfowl, and MN small games lic. to hunt geese in MN during the duck season. On top of those, you need a special goose permit for the early and late goose seasons. You also need to be HIP certified. If you don't get asked when you buy your lic., there is a phone# that you can call that is listed in your hunting regs, I think.

Crappiebait, there is no stamp for the early or late goose hunting. It is just a permit that you ask for and it prints out on your small game license that you have it.
It states- Fall special goose permit.
Even though it says fall it is also good for the late season hunt.
For spring snows you also need to ask for that one. There is no stamp for that either, it prints out on your license.
And yes you have to have a state and federal stamp which are actual stamps. They hand the federal to you and you get the state in the mail.
Bushwacker, I would say I am 100% right.

Isn't the HIP certificate a federal thing?

That's right I thought it was about when they asked you those migratory waterfowl questions. It's on my license like it's supposed to be. I just didn't realize it actually printed on there.

Are you sure about that statement ? I thought in order to hunt waterfowl ANYTIME you need all stamps,even for early goose/late goose/spring goose.I could be wrong,but the way I read it is you always need the state & fed. stamps.

Anyone care to help out on this one ?I'm curious.

You need the state and federal stamp (and a small game license) to hunt all waterfowl from 9/25/04 to the close of the season. That is the regular waterfowl season. There are two special seasons for geese which is earlier and later than the regular waterfowl season. For those, you need an additional license which I believe is $4. You also need to be HIP registered to take migratory birds during any season.

You automatically get HIP registered if you buy your stamps with your license don't you? Or do you need to call or something?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.
    • delcecchi
      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
