So if someone rides their atv to their stand, how many of them are going to wait until 11 AM to ride out?

The ones who respect the law and the other hunters around them.

I either wait for the legal hours, if I shoot a deer, or I walk out and come back. Nothing worse than someone driving around an atv opening morning. Besides the law it's a common courtesy thing.

Last year we shot a deer within the first 1/2 hour of our hunt. We gutted it out, placed a stick to spread the ribs, and waited until noon to bring it out on our ATV. At two miles it would be a long way to drag it. It's only right.

Its nice to hear that there are a few who obey the operation hours. I swear up by us most of the atv owners think the law is for somebody else.

Man, I wish the guy that hunted next to us was that considerate. He's on public land.

Reality is I think he helps stir things up when going back and forth, but one trail is right past my favorite spot. I'll try and save that one for Monday. Pretty sure he has to work.

Try to walk up to these people running ATV's with your digital camera/camera phones if you have one and snap a pic of them with the ATV Registration tag on the back of the ATV preferablly with a date and time stamp. Might be a good deterant?? Who knows???

Remember that some of those "violators" actually have permits to operate outside of legal hours. A lot of deer hunters have disabilites that allow them to use their wheelers at any hour.

Really? I guess I've never heard of that one. My disabled friend has a permit to shoot from his vehicle, but cannot run his atv at all hours. Separate permits I suppose?

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
