How sick are you?

21 posts in this topic

Today a friend of mine who has already lost his wife to cancer heard his dog yelp in his yard. Going outside he found that someone driving a Chevy truck with a snowmobile trailer with snowmobile and portable had driven through his gate and past 4 (YES 4) No Trespassing signs over 1/4 mile trying to find away onto URL without paying a $10 access fee. These fishermen had driven over his dog in his yard. As he held his dying dog in his arms the fishermen just drove away.

Thats ridiculous. Those guys should go to jail for trespassing and animal abuse.

If you can't afford the access fee, I don't know how you can afford your gas and bait to get there and fish. What a joke.

Oh and thanks for pulling our house to shore for us Kelly. We'll have to find you when we get up there to bring it home to give you a few bucks. Cause I know we would have never gotten it out of there ourselves.

Kelly, any chance he got the CO or Sherriff on them? Definitley 'meat hogs' with no regard for anyone other than themselves...

I think a nice long bootless walk from the res. line back to shore is in order for them!!!

Good Luck!

Wow, when you think some people just can't get any lower. Those "sportsmen" sound like prime candidates for retroactive abortion.

Couldn't a C.O. just follow the tire tracks to the culprit? At least try it?

I have no problem paying $10/day for a road pass. The hardwork you guys put in keeping the roads open for us and the advice that you offer is priceless, and if something does go wrong it you guys that come to the rescue. URL would be difficult to winter fish if it wasn't for you guys.

My condolences to your friend for the run of bad luck with his wife and now his best friend.

This kind of story really gets to me. There are some people out there that have no respect for others property or the hard work that goes into making Upper Red what it is for everyone that goes out there. I really doubt he was able to get the license, but if he has a good enough description of the vehicle, all the road guys could keep an eye out for him and get the police on chase when they come through. We know if they are not responsible enough to pay the 10 dollar fee to get on, they wont think twice about using the roads once they get on the lake. They'll come off using one and somebody has to help get this guy in front of a CO or the police. Absolutely no excuse for that kind of behavior. There are quite a few laws the guy broke and he could face some pretty steep penalties for his actions. Lets just hope he gets caught.

Almost unreal how cold hearted some folks can be.That's a heartbreaker there,being that I am a dog owner.It's hammer time, from the law, on those #*%&*'s.

Im pretty sure Id be the one in custody if that happened to anyone I know, especially myself. There is NO reason for that- idiots probably had like $100 worth of beer but decided the $10 was too much- so not only did they break a (several) law, but killed man's best friend. Its never good wishing someones demise, but I hope those bastards get whats coming to them. Im not a very empathetic person (things happen for a reason) but when you bring animals, especially dogs into the equation... You deserve the worst and every bit of it. Accidents happen, but that is just appalling and rediculous.

It truly is amazing what stunts take place with some of these guys. The sad event with our friends dog had just taken place and fresh in my mind when I was awoke early this morning by a pick-up and trailer a few feet from my bedroom window. The best part is they where upset with ME because MY truck was blocking MY driveway at MY house and they couldn't get turned around. How dare I impeed the way to the lake? To bad my driveway is back from the lake 300 yard with a canal between me and the lake front homes.confused.gif

So there they sat wedged between a tree, my house and the plow truck in attempts to get to the lake? At first I thought these may be the same guys but the description was off. Although I bet that is the first butt chewing they got from a shirtless, shoeless guy wearing only a pair of woolpants in the middle of the woods. crazy.gif

I have seen this thread come up on the side board a couple times now. I figured it was about a flu epidemic or to much brew up at Slab Fest Saturday night.

After reading this post now, I am very, very sorry this happened to your buddy. I hope this post gets out to who ever did this and they do realize what they had done was way over the top. I have to feel deep down they probably did not know about the dog or being a MN sportsman, would like to think so. Maybe not, I do not know, but in any event I hope he pulls threw and goes on. The worst thing a person can do, is let the stuff like these guys did get to you. It could be what they want in the end anyways.

Good luck

WOW...I am truly sorry to hear this. My dogs are like my kids, I love them dearly and would be absolutely devastated if this happened to me.

I'm not even gonna get into the details of what I would do if placed in this same situation. When emotions are involved like in this instance, who knows what I would do?

I don't know this guy, his family, or his dog...but I can tell you I'm pretty fired up right now after reading this post. I gotta go before I start getting even more mad............

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
