Starting this year it is illegal in Minnesota to hunt with night vision equipment.

Yep, that's right, page 33 of reg book.

I was going to get something but i guess I have to pass.

In any case, you can find gen 1 scopes for $ 500 and up, they are ok for short range up to 100 yards, which I think it's enough distance for night hunting.

Gen 2 and 3 are very expensive, I looked through a nice gen 3 and was impressed, not with the $ 3500 price tag, though.

The Gen 3's are amazing!!! And you're right, the price tags are equally impressive!! shocked.gif It's just as well... As much as I would like a new "gizmo", with it not being legal and an empty slot in the gun safe, I believe I know where my finances are headed... Right Val? wink.gif

Hmmm, heading to the dark side with an EBR huh? Next you'll start reloading to save money cause good .223's are getting expensive, and they are so much fun to shoot........ grin.gif

Too bad it's illegal because hunting with the Generation 3 was pretty awesome.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
