Everything is open except for some small farm type ponds.. I will be out hunting ducks/geese the next three days in the area and will let you know what I find for ice... Sounds like we have some cold air moving in early next week..

I was hoping to slide a little aluminum boat in at a buddies cabin this weekend and just go around with the trolling motor. Do you think ill have a problem sliding a boat in the lake this weekend?

You should have no problems. If there is any ice, just smash through it.

There is no ice on Most/all lakes... We may get a little film on some along the edges, but I'm planning on hitting a few lakes tomm-thru sunday...

The real little, shallow lakes will have some ice but we are talking a film instead of inches....

I did, but I used my duck boat instead of the guide boat to chase them fishies.... Did real well actually, I surprised myself with my ability to use my Marcum Flasher hanging over the side of the boat instead of using my regular electronics...

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
