REMEMBER---the adult DOES NOT GET TO CARRY A GUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last year I heard people bragging on waterfowler.com about shootin the $*^# outta the ducks with their kids and all these people tryin to find a kid to take hunting so they could hunt a weekend early.. even if your goose hunting you cannot have a gun..
Its for the kids.. dont take advantage of it

It is just Saturday right?I could shoot geese again on Sunday?

My daughter is a little too young yet to handle a shot gun, so I been taking her out with me while I hunt so she can see what it's all about.

But if I can't do the shooting on Sunday ,maybe I will have to buy a .410 and some Bismuth for her on Sunday.

Benny,

Youth day is Saturday only. You can hunt Geese on Sunday as part of the early goose season. Your daughter can hunt with you on Sunday but only as a goose hunter.

Enjoy!

Benny-
Have you found Bismuth for the .410? If so, where, I am interested and getting some as well!

I am thinking that you can goose hunt like normal on Saturday. But you can't have your kid taking part of the Youth Day. You can treat Saturday the same as the other days of early goose.

jlm, I have not seen any myself.I just heard it is the only non steel non toxic load out there for the .410.

I bet you could find it at Fleet farm or sportsmans wherehouse.

Gander is to cheap to carry .410 loads.

Yep.. goose hunting goes on like normal today and the youth season ends at 4 pm today, it does NOT go through tomorrow.. thats another thing alot of people thought it was all weekend, i saw people out pothole jumping last year on sunday..

i dont understand how people cant figure this out.. if you dont know the laws you shouldnt even be out hunting.. get the regs and READ EM!!

I live in the Grand Rapids area and stopped at Glen's Army Navy store inquiring about .410 steel shot. They said it usually runs about $40 a box. I just bought my daughter a single shot .20 gauge to use for duck hunting. A buddy of mine that's a hard core duck hunter said he used to kill alot of ducks with his .410 when he was a kid. The biggest thing was to pattern the gun and realize the effective range of it.

Last year I wanted to take my son duck hunting with the 410. Big disappointment to find out the only non toxic load was bismuth....$49/ box of 10!!!!!!!
He shot squirrels again, this year graduating to a 20 ga.

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?
    • ANYFISH2
      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos
    • certified jumbo
      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.
