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............

      Well its been a interesting few days to say the least. The main thing were all the fishermen and customers were safe as well as the houses The standing water on the lake started to find more areas to drain causing a fishing frenzy for Marty and his wife shelly Monday night. The mother load swam right under marty and shell and boy did they have fun. They caught more then a few elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappies. Mean while Dave and his crew stood outside and managed to land 11 yes 11 elusive upper red lake crappies fishing in the rain. They also did real well on the walleye fishing with Kyle landing his first ever walleye. Tuesday morning I was off to the dentist early then arrived back home to say good by to marty and shell. I was going crazy to get back on the lake and see what the conditions were like. Closer to shore and most of the water has had drained down the cracks and holes. The biggest hole I have found so far   was where old minnesota was and is about 20 inches wide. Driving out to Montana and Florida I stayed to the right of the road to conserve the road. I have a hard time driving by liter so a couple stops were made . I few wood blocks, a couple pop cans, a beer bottle. All and all not to bad as I have seen a lot worse over the years. Buddy Hillmens bridge is in good shape. Getting the skid houses over the pressure ridge is still possible and Buddy has started bringing some of his customers house's home as well as one or two of his own. He has a special way of towing them over and was nice enough to call me when they were in the process of bringing one across so I could observe there system compared to how I got old Minnesota and north Dakota across two weeks ago. Man did that way work well as I pulled  a old house from the past over with his system with no problems.  Trying to bring north Dakota and old Minnesota back out may not be a option though . Every year I chase the mother load of the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie but this year I may have to get montana and florida back over the pressure ridge rather then taking the whole fleet back out there. Common sense needs to prevail on this decision . I was planning on spending some quality time napping and fishing in old Minnesota but time and mother nature will tell how it pans out. Jake and his crew are still planning on coming in march and I see no reason we will have any problems looking for the mother load as there's still plenty of ice out there. Out where montana and florida are there's still some standing water but nothing like it was on Tuesday. With the cold temps coming back every thing should tighten back up in the next day or two. I have a big crew with my son John coming today for the final weekend of game fish season. They have florida, montana and North Carolina plus the cabin. I was in the process of hauling north Carolina out there yesterday when I remembered Jeff mentioned the ceiling fan was loose . I stopped to check it out and its hanging by one wire? For some reason I have 4 screw drivers in my tool box and not one of them is a phillip's so I had to leave the house where it was  un tell I can get out there this morning and secure it. As The temps drop we should be in good shape for the final weekend. Buddy hillmens road withstood what mother nature had to offer . The good news is the red baron is repaired. Its just 50 miles away and I will not be able to go pick it up un tell some time  tomorrow.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included
