      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Change in Baiting Law

Recommended Posts

Wobbler

Have any of you seen the change in baiting for deer? I read the article in the paper and checked the regulations and if you own the land you can use bait? I am not here to argue if that is right or wrong I am just curious. I know in years past even the landowner could not do that but the way I interpret the law (not a lawyer) it seems to me you could hunt over bait if you hunt on land you own Page 72 in the hunting regulations "The restriction does not apply to a person hunting on their own property, when the person has not participated in, been involved with, or agreed to feeding wildlife on adjacent land owned by another person."

Wobb- I think you are reading the reg wrong in my opinion.. .I think this law was for people who had small plots of land.. and the nexd door neighbor had a feeder.. In years before you could not hunt within so far of a feeder... But with the new law... You can still hunt your land, as long as you have nothing to do with putting out the bait/food.

I hope someone corrects me if I am wrong.

Thanks for your opinion. I don't own land so it does not affect me but the way the law is written it could easily be misunderstood! Not knowing what you told me in your above post which makes sense to me, if I was to play devil's advocate I could say as long as I don't advocate feeding or baiting next to my land I could hunt and use bait on my land.

Deitz is absolutely correct.

The rule clearly states that you can hunt your own land even if the neighbor has baited the area adjacent to your land. This rule was developed to prevent previuos hunter harassment where the adjacent land owner would bait deer to prevent his neighbor from hunting near it (even if they were on there own land)

People - You can not bait deer - period.

DD's got it right. The law is intended to not penalize someone hunting on their own land if the neighbor is baiting or feeding deer.

The past regulation would still allow a CO to ticket you if you hunted on trails leading to bait whether the bait was on your property or not. SOme guys only had a small chunk of land and that law would make hunting it impossible. Now, as long as you don't have anything to do with the feeding of the deer and it does not take place on your property, you are safe to hunt it. The only thing I would still avoid is hunting within site of the feeding station... even if the station is on the neighbors piece and you are hunting yours. I think they may still be able to tag you then. I amy be wrong, but I'd avoid that situation.

Good Luck!

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
