Yes. He was born after 1979. I talked to him about the apprentice license and he said he has used them. I was unfamiliar with the whole process and what type of license he has gotten in the past, so I never paid much attention to it. He has done his homework and has called the DNR to explore all of his options. It sounds like his only option is the online class, but he said that he does not have to do the field day. The DNR officer he talked to said that he would be exempt from having to do that (I am not exactly sure why).
I hope he gets it done before the weekend, but I am not counting on it. He just graduated from college and is on a job hunt, meaning he doesn't have a job, so he should take the time this week and rifle it out. Otherwise, I might have an open spot in the boat now...and with only two people, I hope we see more than just woodies!
Thanks to all of you for your input. I appreciate it.
