Missing gun...

10 posts in this topic

A friend was coming back from North Dakota deer hunting on Monday and somehow a black hard case containing a Ruger full stocked rifle in .250 Savage disappeared from his truck.

This rifle is intended as a gift to someone for the holidays and he would sure like it back.

He thinks it happened around Wilton MN, but we are not 100% sure.

He is offering a reward if found, no questions asked.

If you have any information please PM me or email at jwnoraas@paulbunyan.net

Thanks,

I assume if you have the gun's serial number it has been reported to the authorites as lost or stolen?

Even if not, it should be reported - but you've probably done that, I hope.

Way ahead of ya, hence the no questions asked, just want the gun back.

They cannot pawn it, trade it, or sell it without being hit by NCIC. We are hoping it is just found and returned.

You mean they cant sell it to a dealer.

Private sale or usually a trade for drugs is what happens.

Good luck...

Wilton? Is that where the hwy 89 turns north? That gun will work good in front of a spotlight.

Yeah Wilton is a little West of 89, eventually it will turn up, I had case not long ago where I recovered a shotgun stolen in Seattle almost 20 years before. AS far as jacklighting with it if they want to deal with finding ammo for it good luck it is not a common caliber and being it is not a traditional type rifle someone will see it and eventually talk. RSI's in that caliber are just not common. I am hoping they will realize it is better to turn it in for the reward then the alternative.

Good luck with finding the rifle.....that really sucks. What does "ttt" stand for, just out of curiosity?

To The Top so it goes to the top of the boards so people won't forget about it. Or they say "bump".

      Anyfish2 - thanks for the reports. I believe it was you who had written a little summary that included a rough estimation of when the LF river busts open and muddies the Rainy.    Can you (or anyone) comment on when that's looking likely to happen? anyone know when the river cleared the Frontier landing? I think you said that happening gives a 1-to-2 week notice on the LF breakup.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
