I got my gift card right away, well within a few weeks, but I haven't gotten anything since.

It also depends on whether you signed up through a chapter or with the corporate office. Through a chapter takes an additional step and could take longer. Also, this time of year is pretty busy for them (state conventions and Pheasant Fest). Have patience, it is a great organization and the more you get involved the more you will get out of it.

I signed up when the gift card offer came out and got my membership card/decal stuff late last week, the gift card came within 2 weeks. So I would guess you guys should see it soon.

This time of year is nuts for them down there. Be patient. They have alot of things they are getting ready for with the State Conv. last week and Pheasant Fest. coming up and all other Chap. banquets. I was just down there(National) a couple of weeks ago to get stuff for our Chapt. banquet and they said it was crazy. I know they were loading semi's up to take stuff to Nebraska to get ready for Pheasant Fest.

If anyone here is interested in going to the Metro Area chapter banquet with Pheasants Forever let me know, I am on the committee here for the metro chapter and the banquet will be on Thursday, March 31st. We will have a number of guns raffled off and many other items up for auction or silent auction. All the money earned goes to projects that are done in counties outside of the metro area. It would be great to have a bunch of fellow FM'ers there at the banquet.

If anyone is in the northern metro, the Anoka County Pheasants Forever banquet is March 12 in Andover. There will be a four wheeler, snowmobile trailer, 20some guns, trips and more. If interested, details are in Outdoor News or on the Anoka PF website (do a search).

Fall Morning Fanatic

I joined Pheasants Forever last spring at my local banquet here in Buffalo.Spent about $250 that night.

Still have never received anything.

I don't go to banquets to win things and don't join outdoor organizations for perks.I join them because they are good for our sport.

However, I am quite bitter that I did not receive anything in the mail stating that I am a member and thanks for the support.

Will not go this year.

If you received absolutely nothing from the organization stating that you are a member, maybe your name and address did not get sent in by the local chapter. Its worth checking into.

Just my 2 cents

FMF,

I am a longtime committee member for a chapter of PF (not yours). I can tell you that banquet day is a hectic day with a million things going on and it is all done by volunteers. Not one person is paid one dime. inevitably, we lose one or two registrations for some stupid reason. Every year, we try and improve it. I guess what I am asking, is give them a break and call them up and tell them your situation. More than likely, they will correct it for you. I know those guys a little and they are good guys tryin to do the right thing. Believe me, it really is a lot of work. Right now, for our chapter, we meet every thurs nite from 7 til 11, then spend parts of another night or two working on the banquet. Seriously, give them a call and they will take care of you. Oh, you didnt by chance go to the banquet on a comp ticket did you? If so, some times they do not include memberships. I know I can speak for them in that they really appreciate your support in the past and would love to have your support in the future. It goes towards a good cause. Maybe you even want to think about becoming active in the chapter and put your efforts into making sure that what happened to you never happens to anyone else??

Best of luck. If you are interested in coming to the Anoka banquet, let me know. I will gauruntee you, we will not lose your membership.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake. 
    • Wanderer
      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!
    • BriGuy88
      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.
