What a nice guy

Recommended Posts

As I was walking out of the woods tonight, at a local WMA, I was checked by a CO. Turned out to be a great guy. He checked my license asked me if I had been having any luck, which I haven't, haven't seen a deer since pheasant opener. Anyways he asked about a few permenant stands that are out there. He also said obviously I didn't since I had my chair in my hand. Anyways I ended up forgetting my chair in the parking area. He took the time to find my phone number call me up and drop it off at my house less than an hour later. What a guy. Next time you see a CO tell them what a great job they are doing, no only keeping everyone safe and legal, but going out of their way to help someone out.

the only time people think cos and cops are aholes is when they are on the wrong side of the law. sure some may be dimbats, but its probably dealing with (Contact Us Please) day in and day out that starts to take a toll on them.

Phill!

I think I know where you were hunting? grin.gif I do not know, but there have been a rash of perms on the WMA's around where I live and I think CO's are on top of it!

Great to hear of this! I met up with a CO tonight and they were in full force and patrolling land area's you would not even think of , in their tricked out new 4 wheelers. The wheelers are deck out to the max!

All I know, is there are going to be some boggled old guys and poachers surprised this year!

Stay on there good side and they do check up on FM!

I wish i had got a pic of the CO on the Wheeler! He looked pretty cool! cool.gif

I hope he reads this post. I told him how much I appreciated it, but how many other people tell him that and are full of it. Now only if the deer would coopoperate. I have been out over 40 times already and have only seen 6 deer while on stand. With all the people walking these WMA I think the deer have moved out or move by night. Oh well what can you do but keep trying. By the way the land was a few miles north of Mankato on 169.

I really believe that almost all CO's are very nice guys and all they are doing is trying to protect our resources for the sportsmen and women. I'm sure that the day after day of abuse takes it toll.

What would one have left for fish and game if the DNR was not out watching the ones that dont follow the rules???

These guys and gals are human also and will have their bad days to.

I was going to my uncles house in Ham Lake last Friday. Got off work early and brought the dog over. I thought hey lets stop off at Carlos Avery.

So the dog and I took off along a field. Orange hat and no gun.

A female CO stopped and looked at us when we were a couple hundred yards in the field. My lil puppy is only 3 1/2 months so she is full of excitment.

When we got close to the parking area my lil puppy saw her and went nuts. She was extremely nice and told me where to go to kick up a pheasant to help out the dog. I was very impressed at her demenor, professionalism and personality.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
