Was with Eddie to witness the turtle trifecta. The snapper and soft shell are common. The third turtle was one I don't think I'd seen before. After looking through a field guide of North American reptiles I think it was a False Map Turtle. The habitat and range would be right.

I told Ed if he would have gotten a painted turtle also he would have the turtle grand slam, a truely rare feat. grin.gif

Also Ed is the only person I know that can be rangling bait and catch a snapping turtle in the net just to have it go hauling the mail right through the side of the net!

I'm not done with that snapping turtle just yet. I know where it is living now. He might make an appearance on the 29th.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
