Proposed Waterfowl Changes by GLIFWC

1 post in this topic

I went to the state fair and of course spent some time at the DNR building and I also picked up an Outdoor News (dated August 31st, 2007; Vol.40, No.35). The article I read was somewhat disturbing. The article is on the first page just under main picture. Proposed changes for off-reservation water fowling include new bag limits, no species restrictions and later daily close for the season. Now, if you ask me, this is moving in the opposite direction of what MN DNR waterfowl plan is attempting to achieve. The way I understand it this proposal is just asking for reduced populations. I am concerned that this could lead to significantly reduced numbers of ducks and geese if passed.

If anyone has read this article can they comment? The scope of this affects MN, WI and Michigan based off of treaty areas.

      I am looking at a new portable shelter this year. It would be ideal to get one that fits 3-4 people so I can take my whole family out. I am looking at the clam x400. My concern is the weight. Does anybody have experience lifting this unit up in the back of a truck or dragging it around or to move from spot to spot?  Any suggestions of other shelters to look at would be great. Thanks!

      Just wondering what you guys prefer for fishing fall walleyes down here in southern mn. I know the creek and redtail chubs work great on the northern mn lakes during the fall months but wasnt quite sure if our lakes responded the same down here or if a smaller profile would be the way to go.
