Frequently Asked Questions

February 27, 2012

Here are answers to some of the recent most frequently asked law enforcement questions taken this week by the DNR Call Center.
The Call Center is staffed daily, 7 a.m. - 10 p.m., and offers bilingual service in Spanish and Hmong. The number is 1-888-936-7463.

Question 1: If I buy a fishing license right now , when will it expire?

Answer: Any licenses purchased now through March 7, 2012 will expire on March 31, 2012. After March 7 , the 2012-13 season licenses will be available for purchase. Those licenses are valid beginning the day they are purchased and will expire on March 31, 2013.

Question 2: If I only want to buy a one-day fishing license now because I am going fishing for a short trip , when does that one-day license expire?

Answer: The one-day fishing license is good for the day you select as the day you want to fish when you purchase the license. The license is good until midnight of that day.

Question 3: Can I place corn on the cob out as part of my bait pile?

Answer: Yes you can leave cobs because they are biodegradable but they will also be counted towards the 2 - gallon limit if left out after all the corn is consumed.
