Wow, this has to be good for the duck population and for maintaining trophy size pike.

Heron Lake in 1915. Gangsters? I'm sure they shot the ducks in those outfits.

Wow, interesting photos DC. Makes you think, huh? BTW - one of our older hunting buds has pics of his dad and friends back in the day wearing ties and vests and "sport coats" out hunting divers, so they really did wear that stuff! He even wears a tie one day a year for the heck of it, always gets a chuckle during breakfast smile.gif

"Breakfast at Duck Camp" That pic is the cover of the 2007 Cabelas Waterfowl mag/cat.

Yeah, I threw that one in there after seeing it on Cabelas. I thought it looked like Norman Rockwell. I'd love to find some other artists who paint in that style. Those are some great images, very nostalgic and romanticized but idyllic and reminiscent of the old days.

i loved them all. The only I don't like is the market hunters they killed alot of birds too many. But for some it was a way of life and you just can't change something like that.

After seeing the ducks this last weekend, I hope to have my limit along with 4 other ducks hunters (all in different spots) within 1 hour of hunting this upcoming Saturday. Can't wait!!

        when dont you look odd? ? ?    got ya

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
