Jeez... I was on the MN DNR website to checkout spring turkey hunt information and realized that the MnGCA logo looks incredibly similar to the DNR logo.. I am not implying copyright infringement or anything but the similarity is uncanny.

The only similarity I see is the State of Minnesota and I think anyone can use that shape.

Oddly enough the Mn DNR logo doesn't have a tree, just the unique shape of our wonderful state.

The DNR Logo that was posted has two trees just like ours.

I didn't realize that the "M" was two extremely stylized pine tree like shapes on it. I don't think we have to worry. That "M" is closer to something I'd expect to see on a superhero's tights.

While I completely disagree that is supposed to be an "M" on the DNR logo, I was NOT making any judgements or statements AT ALL about where the MNGCA logo came from.

Ok, so their logo is trying to be trees AND an "M". Still very similar.

I like how the State Logo has a very well camo'd ammo can in the image.
Very cool indeed it took me about 5 mins to locate it. Wink Razz

If they are trees on the DNR logo, then I see four. Or maybe two trees and two sailboats? Smile

Could be four, I thought it was two, with the lower triangles being their trunks, but either way.

Looks to me like a pair of teepee's symbolizing the state's casino industry.
