Cool looking Moose.

I have only seen one moose in my lifetime. I was driving on the Gunflint with my wife looking for moose. We drove all the way up and we started heading back when we turned a corner and there was a huge cow about 20yds in front of my car eek.gif. Coolest thing I have ever seen! grin.gif

I am not sure. I don't think it is. I remember seeing a pic of a person that harvested one probably a couple of years ago NW of Mille Lacs Lake.

Those pics are amazing. Thanks for sharing. The locker plant in St.Joe has a full body mount of a albino doe laying down in a glass encasement that is pretty cool also. Was shot near St.John's university just down the road.

As long as it has a spot (dime size even) of brown, it is not considered an albino and can be taken. That's my understanding anyway.

there is not a law protecting albino deer in the state of MN....wisconsin on the other hand there is a law preventing you from shooting an albino

It is not illegal to kill an albino deer in minnesota. Actually i have heard that they would like to see them killed. They are Genetic Defects. A person in our party killed an albino last year. we saw it maybe twice in the summer before season.

Not one, but two ! Truly amazing ! These animals were photographed just north of the Wisconsin border on a highway near Marenisco , MI .

Once in awhile there is an opportunity to take in a piece of nature that you may never see. In these days of unrest and turmoil it is great to see that Mother Nature can still produce some wondrous beauty.

Great pics! It IS NOT ILLEGAL to harvest an albino deer in Minnesota. It is, however, illegal to harvest an albino deer in Wisconsin as they are protected.

UMDSportsman- Where do you hunt? I see you said someone harvested an albino in your party, just curious as to where as I see you have two towns listed. Thanks!

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
