If you're like many of us and getting a late start to your Minnesota fishing season, here's what I think is the best way to buy your fishing license. Purchase it on line right here and then you're set for the season. A couple of years ago the MN DNR lowered the fees they charge for buying your license on line, making it much more affordable. (It's only 3 percent of your total cost)
The big advantage to buying it online is you can download your license and save it on your desktop. Then print them out! Yes them, one for your boat, one for your wallet, one for your kayak, one for your...well you get the idea. If you lose one or it gets ruined you're only a couple of clicks away from printing out another one. Good Luck!
