How sad is this?

Recommended Posts

That is terrible. My prayers go out to the family.

I have seen this before. I was laying in a field in Canada when a farmer pulled up and stuck a rifle out the window to get the geese off of his grain. I jumped up as quick as I could. He just waved and drove away. The bad thing is I had permission from him to hunt it.

As decoy's continue to get more and more realistic, its fooling more than the birds, it fools (Contact Us Please) like that guy too. Terrible story.

Terrible and sad.

I hope the person that did this turns themselves in.

Read the artcile and the respones to it. One person made the statement "Now he knows what the goose feels like". What the ??!?!?!? That is terrible!

Good god I can't even imagine the horror on the faces of his buddies that were with him when they realized what happened.

That is extremely sad and I hope the guy that did that is caught and gets fried.

If I'm not mistaken didn't this same thing happen to one of the Avery Pro Staffers earlier this fall? He was in a boat though sitting over floaters....Wisconsin or Michigan I think???

This is the 3rd such case in recent history that I can remember.

The Avery Pro staffer was in Canada, I believe.

There was also a case near Rapid City SD a year or so ago.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
