Schmidt baiting update

12 posts in this topic

Well it has taken sometime to confirm, but it is true that the Schmidts continue to prove what kind of sportsman they truely are!! Conservation officers witnessed the killing of a nice 8 point buck over a pile of corn. They then confronted and and confiscated the deer. At one of the homes they found several more deer that were presumed to be taken by illegal methods.

Nobody else hunts the area so the deer are not pressured. Sit in your stand and wait, just like the kids in our party do! Put your time in and shoot deer legally-on your property and by fair chase. Take the time to set up good stands and clear shooting lanes so you don't have to shoot on to someone elses property!!

Sorry for the long message, but this stuff has been going on for a long time. Whether it is trespassing or baiting it is wrong and hope they take away there hunting rights for a while!!

Good post Fishhawk! I couldn't agree more!

It is extremely frustrating to learn that neighboring hunters are baiting the deer, and then illegally shooting them! It is not only illegal, but also immoral in the fact that they are concentrating the deer's movement into their own property while hunters on neighboring lands see fewer deer.

Very lazy and selfish if you ask me!

Eagle Eyes, I think if you knew these gentlemen you'd have a different opinion. I don't care who it is as long as they got caught which it sounds like they did. Also this isn't just a fishing reports page for Buffalo/Annandale/Big Lake.

Facts? How about calling Rick Reller the area CO. You dont't care how people take them, just that they are off the road? Very intelligent way of replying. Personally I would like my kids to follow the law, so I live that way everyday.

EagleEyes -

First off the facts are straight.

Second, it is not whining to voice frustration over people illegally baiting and shooting deer. It's a bad problem, and something that should be talked about on forums like this.

Third and foremost, if you could care less about the subject then why are you bothering to reply to it? Why don't you just read the fishing reports thread and be happy with that?

I heard from reliable sources that last winter they got busted and ticketed for having over 100 crappies in one day!

They even give rednecks a bad name!!

My family has been a neighbor of the Schmidts for many years, I am happy to hear that they have got what they diserved. We all love to enjoy the outdoors and its a shame when somone takes it for granted or thinks they are above the law.

Hey Mgreseth, are you Matt or Mark? I went to high school with Matt. Do you get out and do any bowhunting by chance? The reason I ask is that I saw a very nice buck not too far from your parents place last weekend. The Schmidts must not have got to this one...

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
