i just got an email back from the MN DNR. if you have served overseas in the past 24 months and you are a resident of MN you can obtain one free deer tag. to get it you can go to anywhere that sells deer tags, show them your discharge papers (your DD214 im assuming) and a MN drivers lisence. limit is one tag. you can also get a free small game license.

Well i really like it, my wife just returned home from 18 months in the sandbox, and she also thinks it is nice since this will be her first year deer hunting. The cost of the license isn't that much so it wouldn't break the bank, but I think the state has done a wonderful thing with this as a gift for all those veterans that missed the last two seasons cause they were fighting for their state and country.

They also changed the law about getting your hunters safety classes if you have served. You have to check the regs, but I believe it said that if you can show you were in the service and you are "range certified" then all you have to do is take the test and you are done. I have a buddy that is going to do that, and now he can do it online. I like that they aren't making these men and women jump through all the hoops. They obviously know how to handle a firearm, and hopefully people that have that kind of training understand ethics. They are also allowed to fish for free if I remember correctly. They just have to have their service papers on them as a license. Anyways, I think it is a good move.

My best friend flies back today from Afghanistan for a two week leave. Then it is back to the stone age.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
