Here is a pick of the Mandarin Duck that was mentioned in the scoter thread. Probably just an escapee, but was flying with wild ducks and i am very proud to take him and he is at the taxidermist as we speak!!

Sweet bird, I bet that was a surprise when you picked him out of the water.

I was very suprised when my dog came running up to me with the bird in his mouth, all i saw was the head hanging down and i couldn't believe my eyes. I new what it was because i studied them when i was younger, but was amazed i just shot one. I will for sure post pics when it is done being mounted.

Dont let this guy fool you, he went to the minnesota zoo late at night snuck in through the wildabeast section, around the grizzley exhibit to then proceed to hold out his hand full of peanuts which he stole from the bears, and the duck walked into his bag.

I SHOT that duck tooo..ha ha ha ha

nice pics,

maybe you show me where the mountable ducks are next time instead of you shooting them all

If he man enough to steal peanuts from bears, well then he should get to keep the duck too. Looks like a great and interesting bird to mount.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
