      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.

vehicle hit and run at ripley

well this was my first year going there by myself and managed a doe. come out of the woods to notice my red and silver 1997 ford f-150 had been hit in the box area. dented and scratched. I was hoping for a note, nothing. I was very upset that someone can consider themselves a bowhunter let alone a real person. THis saddens me because i have 500 dollar deductable. Being 23 with a house and a 15 month old daughter money is short. If anyone knows who did it i wont have the cops involved if they give me 500 dollars for insurance. The vehicle was green cus there was green paint left behind. The following was wrecked. Box dented. tailight smashed. bumper smashed. Oh ya my doe was over 9 years old. thanks guys

Sorry to here this. Maybe one should report it as a hit and run. You never know they might get caught. I would maybe hang around and see if there is a green vechile around the camp tomorrow. Does the camp take vechile numbers as they enter the camp? Might be one way to find out who hit you.

10-4 HL,

There's about 2,200 or more people drawn for the hunt and the line of vehicles waiting is at least a mile and a quarter long, double file. We actually clocked it when we arrived.

They have all the license plate numbers, make, model and color of the vehicles that entered the hunt zone each day along with the owners name and city they live in.

It would take some cooperation from the officials to weed through it all but you could narrow it down quite a bit and maybe have the police check those matches for damage.

Might be alot of work but it could be worth $50/hr to you. One way to look at it.

P.S. Nine year old?! I didn't know they made deer that old! What did she weigh? Congrats on a fine trophy!

They do an age check on the deer registered at Ripley. My doe was 2.5 years old.

Sorry about your truck. It wasn't military green paint on it I hope...

9 year's old is super old, holy cow, she must be a beast. Did she still have all of her teeth?

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      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!
