Minnesota -(Ammoland.com)- The voluntary walleye stamp validation costs $5 but is not required to fish for or keep walleye.
For an extra 75 cents, purchasers will be mailed the pictorial stamp. A pictorial collectable stamp without the validation is available for $5.75. Walleye stamps are available year-round and are not required to be purchased at the same time as fishing licenses.
“When people voluntarily buy walleye stamps, the money they pay goes into an account dedicated to walleye stocking,” said Neil Vanderbosch, fisheries program consultant for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “We use this money to buy walleye from certified private producers.”
The stamp contest offers no prizes and is open to Minnesota residents only. The walleye must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota lakes and rivers.
