Electronic Caller ?

Recommended Posts

Moose-Hunter

After re-reading the regs, it seems as I might be spliting hairs with the letter of the law...

Can I use a electronic caller that is "wireless"? Meaning a controller in my hand and the speaker a few yards away with no cords between the two?

As long as we're talking electronics... How about mechanical decoys? Can they be used (legally) to get a yodel dogs attention? How about if they are remotely controlled?

You bet you can! Electronic callers with radio frequency remote controls are legal to use for predator hunting in Mn. The remote controls became legal just this year.

Electronic decoys are legal as well but, the remote controlled ones may not be since the language of the law only addresses "noise callers". My decoy will run either way but I don't use the remote function as it's just another wire to mess with in the cold! I just turn it on and let it run while using the remote to control only the e-caller.

You are correct about the caller FlyingV, if I am not mistaken, weren't you one of the driving forces behind that change in legislation???

Yes, Picks, I "helped" a little. It was a really a group effort though! Proof that the squeaky wheel gets the grease!

Stay tuned for more activity on "The Hill" to help us predator hunters! -Another hunter is making contact with his legislators this week to get "it" going.

what are we doing this year? I made multiple calls and sent about a dozen letters last year. I had other friends from around the state doing the same.....Are we getting the "mandatory spousal release time" I mentioned last year?

Keep us updated, or I am sure I will relay what is happening on here too.......

I'll let you know in a week or two. You can PM me about it over at the "predator masters" website....

It's really a small deal...

Why the big secret?

If it is a good legislative proposal why not post it here so we can all support it?

I read through your posts regarding the issue over on P.M..... I do believe a word of THANKS is in order for your efforts!!! grin.gif You'll know me by my handle "MnYoteRookie". I thought it quite fitting as this is my first "real" season chasing yodel dogs...

You're welcome Moose!

Walleye101, we will be posting about it. As soon as our guy gets to meet with his legislators, and they agree to author it, and they originate the appropriate Bill #'s, we will tell the world about it. Until that happens, there really is nothing to support so your legislators would not know anything about it or even how to find out about it. If our guy's legislators don't agree with it, then we will need to find others who will!

Give us a week or two to get it going and we will let you know. It's really a small change to current law.

FlyingV,

Don't be so humble. You are the one that carried the remote law change. It's your persistant ways that got it through.

Keep up the good work. Now if you could just get rifles at night with lights... (that one still sticks in my craw.)

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
    • mrpike1973
      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
