Electronic Caller ?

12 posts in this topic

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.......

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.)

      With social media the new normal is for people to rant the open airways.  Unfortunately, some times people cross the line. I don't think that has happened here, but I would also say that I have sympathy for the new owners of the Landing.  I continue to go there knowing I will pay more than I generally would want to.  I would probably go more if their prices were lower as they are much closer to me than The Crescent.

      Another sunrise and another sunset made my day yesterday as I  enjoyed a day on such a grand lake. I spent part of the morning in old Minnesota making some phone calls, planning my day and even wetting a line.
       Berry and his crew Ted, Mike  and Scott had left early do to the weather conditions in southern Minnesota. They only managed 3 more fish after the move. "Stupid fish".
       I hung out in old minnesota until the generator ran out of gas so I could figure out how long it ran on a tank. !0 1/2 hours as she quit running at 8:30 am. Sure would be nice to have that burg system? Oh that's right its in the snow bank . "Stupid thing" not sure why it fails.
       After fueling up the generator I made the morning rounds to be a little disappointed with the fishing report "Stupid fish" Oh well as Wayne always says if we caught them all there would not be any to catch.
       I then went over to clean and prep Montana for Brian and Stacy as they were coming up for there 25th anniversary.
        I also gave Reid and Jason a couple tips as they were off to find the very elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. They only caught one walleye in North Carolina so I told them when they came back it would be in a new spot.
       I then said goodbye to Steve from Michigan  and his crew in Florida. They did horrible on low and did not fair much better in florida the third night. They did have some action on tip ups though just outside the house.
       Then over to north Dakota where again no fish "stupid fish" what a horrible spot that turned out to be. We talked and I told them I would be back at 10:30 to move the house. Arriving back at 10:38  we were on the move. I told them if all went well they would be wetting a line again by noon. I also said if they wanted they could ride in north Dakota. Scott ask if I had any more shovels and I said sure do I have 3  so they all pitched in to dig her out. The move went well and just like I promised they were wetting a line  by noon. Cory said the ride was way smoother then he expected.
       The phone rings and its Stacy and Brian 2 hours early, perfect as the house is ready to go. At the same time Buddy Hillmen calls and says he is over the pressure ridge and were going to open another mile of road. OH! Oh! plan A is now switched to plan B. I get them checked in and I'm off to help with the new road.
       It did not take long to burn up a 1/2 tank of gas. I checked in with Buddy Hillmen and headed home to  gas up, check the fluids and get back out to the houses as I still had more work there. Moving north Carolina went well other then a few issues with the extension cords. As my very good pal Wayne says. "Here at Cookies we do it right cause we do it Twice"
       Once North Carolina was all set I was back out to Hillmen's highway where we would keep plugging away on the new mile of road. 2 hours later and I was heading home for a quick bite before making the evening rounds.
      Stacy and Brian were the first stop where Stacy had lost 5 fish at the hole. I gave her a tip on landing them so we will see if that pans out.
       Reid and Jason found north Carolina and had a blast fishing outside all day. They landed a few walleyes but no" elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie". I guess that's why I call them elusive.
       Last stop was at North Dakota ! I had played a round of Texas Hold um with them the night before and wanted another shot. 
        Scott did not play, he sure deserves to catch a few fish as he was always holding his fishing rod and jigging  when I stopped in. One fish was all they caught on the new spot "stupid fish".
       I lost a second time in hold um and headed home where I ran into a local Dave him and his son had set up just to the north east of us where they landed 3 nice fish.
       Well back to the grind again today. we have mike coming for north Dakota and Kieth and his kids coming for florida. I told both them that check in was at 2pm.

      I believe that one in Monticello closed down

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.
