Just made it through without an extension last weekend. But we are blocked up pretty high.

Same thing here, we are up about 9 inches from the top of the floor to the ice and we just about hit the floor with the auger. We're bringing the extension just in case.

Heck no, the ice was only 25", but then the power auger wasn't working so all I had was my chisel and I chiseled my holes. One good thing was I could make my holes as big as I wanted!

I had more then 25" on anderson reef, needed the ext for the wheel house and one other went down to the power auger head in his portable on the reef next to us.

How hard is it to throw the extension in wherever you go this time of year. It takes up zero room and the piece of mind is worth it.

If you don't own one you have to buy one. That's usually the case with these posts.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
