How sad is this?

7 posts in this topic

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.

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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
