Been a while since i got a motorized permit. I'm sure I could look this up, but do the motorized permits run from like a Friday to a Friday? In other words, can I reserve a motorized permit for like a Monday to a Wednesday/Thursday or do I have to do like a Friday to Friday kind of thing? Specifically, Seagull lake.

Thanks.

You can reserve for any day of the week and any length of time on the OM permits. Most important is the entry date. Looks like there are a few left for Seagull, not many though.

Motor permits run Saturday to Saturday.
Day use motor permits can be picked up any day of the week you indicated.

Just to clarify -- I believe only Day use motor permits run on the Saturday-Sunday time frame. When you reserve a day motor permit you are entitled to use it on the given lake for any one day within that 7-day time frame. Same as other permits, you have to pick up either on the day of or the day before.

Overnight Motor permits work more like overnight paddle permits. You reserve the permit for a specific day of entry and it's only good to enter on that specific date, no flexibility.

I'm sure someone will chime in if I'm incorrect on any of the above.

Gilded Gopher is correct!
