      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Shot Captive Bear

Recommended Posts

tealitup

Did anyone read the paper today about a country singer buying a captive bear and killing it in a closed pen with a bow. Then tagging the bear like it had been killed in the wild.

It happened here in MN too.

What are people thinking? They videotaped it too......... And tried to edit it to create what looks like a fair chase kill.

Lead singer for Montgomery Gentry from what I saw in the paper.

I think this happens quite a bit more than we think, especially with whitetails in penned-up situations. If original footage is destroyed, and only edited video is kept, this seems to be hard to prove.

The St. Paul paper today says that the bear wasn't killed in a pen, it was killed in a 2 or 3 acre enclosure and took the hunter(more like shooter) 2 hours to get a clean shot with his bow. Maybe this guy should be locked up in a small pen if he wants to call that hunting.

Some of the wealthy think that is hunting.They could just as well go to the zoo.Then they have it mounted and put it in there house and brag about it.They are not hunters and never will be.Money can take care of any lack of skill needed.

Makes me sick and even worse another smudge on the face of hunting. Maybe him and Jimmy could do a video together.

It is just like one of those deer hunting shows where the "hunter" is seated in a game farm and there are 10 deer milling around at any given moment while the guy waits for "Mr. Big". Doesn't matter if it is 3 acres or 30 acres, it's all the same and we should protest all this type of "hunting" footages.

I agree with almostthere ,the deer hunts we watch on tv are basically the same just on a larger scale. Dont get me wrong if these guys want to pay x amount of dollars to shoot a big buck over a feed pile then let them, but we all know money cant buy true satisfaction of hunting and harvesting a true wild animal trophy or not.The story about the bear is plain embarassing!Good luck to all of my fellow hunters this fall.

Of all the people that responded to this Thread, how many of you have been to a game farm to shoot pheasants that were penned up earlier in the day?

How is this different?

Yes I have been to a pheasant farm and that is different. The one and only reason I have ever gone is to train a young dog. Also, the pheasants sole purpose in life is to be raised, bought, and shot for fun and food. This guy is just a dumba$$ that wants to pretend or fool other people that he was a real hunter. Another thing is, once the pheasant are let go they have hours are free to fly anywhere they want. (its not our fault they don't) There are even more differences, but I have stuff to do and no time to go on.

Never Mike have you? Anyway that is different. The birds can fly away any time they want to. This Bear can't run away.

Also if it was a captive bear then let loose in the wild I wouldnt have a issue with it but being it was in 1 small cage to another 1-3 acre cage then I have an issue with it.

Can you honestly say this is sporting? If you can, enough said...

Mike, what if I haven't shot pen birds???

I'm not against training dogs at gamefarms, but I've never done it or thought shooting pen birds as the equivalent to hunting.

Perchking, Yes I have been to a gamefarm, to train my dog. Yes I have shot penned pheasants and no I didn't think it was very sporting, to answer your question.

I have been to a gamefarm where I watched as the farm "planted" the birds. They dizzy them up and throw them in the grass. They didn't have much of a chance to fly away prior to the dog finding them. They did fly away after I missed them shocked.gif

Just wondering guys, thanks for the replys.

I too have done the pheasant gamefarm thing. In no way do I consider it hunting. It's boning up on your shooting and putting some meat in the pot. I use it to train my dogs. The last couple of years I've just been too busy to get out in the field so I take my wife and dogs to one just for them, not me, well OK, it's still a little fun. I would never go to a gamefarm or pen to shoot big game and then try to pass it off as hunting. I've watched some of those outdoor hunting shows and in small print it will sometimes explain that they are high fence animals. Which means they may be on 1000 acres but it's still a controlled hunt for certain specified indivduals that the guide put them on. Not really hunting either. And I love how they're acting like they are tracking the shot animal,not sure where it might have gone or if they got a clean kill and then are all excited when the do find it. But the cameraman is already standing over the kill filming their excitement. Fake.

I guess I could never consider shooting birds from a gamefarm hunting... but shooting an animal in a pen is plain embarrassing.

      Wait until open water season.  It was ranked #1 in the country for bass for a reason.  Its also ranked #6 in the nation for muskies too if you have enough patience to target them. A recent review of Mille Lacs was conducted by an independent Biologist from Lake Erie and found that what the DNR has done with that lake has been fair, accurate, and appropriate in terms of regulation/harvest/restrictions.  Course, some business owners might say otherwise but the science and data has been found to be true.
    • gimruis
      I did not draw an early season permit.  I may be able to snag a surplus season B, otherwise it will be a later season for me this spring.  The birds are getting SMART.  They have refused to listen to any calls and they are decoy shy so I haven't been using calls or decoys for a while now.  Rather, I just sit there and wait on a travel route and hope they walk within range (sort of like deer hunting I guess).  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  Scouting is obviously important.  What has also really helped is the use of Winchester Longbeard XR ammo.  I have harvested turkeys out to 60 yards with it in recent years.

      Found out we will have up to 17 guns up for grabs. Plus all the of other prizes. That does not include the 3 guns in the 3 gun raffle. The 3 gun raffle tickets must be purchased before the banquet, so let me know if you need some they are 5 bucks each.

      I will be at it with archery gear. It took some time to get the first one with the crossbow but the last two years I stuck a turkey. Watch for the turkey contest here as it is fun times. I can’t wait to see all the photos of turkeys soon.

      I wonder if you would still need both on you if you have the lifetime licence

      It's go time, i pretty much have all my gear ready for end of March for NE. Our first hunt is archery only then I get to come home and get even with the pipe bomb. Good luck Wanderer once you get that first they just start to drop after that. Bow or shotgun they are a blast. Bisonguy, Scout scout scout. The more you know what the birds are doing and want to do will help. Being a better woodsman and knowing your land and what the birds are doing will put more birds in the dirt then great calling. Patience is another huge part of turkey hunting. I am 1st to want to start running and gunning and give up on a bird i've been working but over the years have got a lot better and just need to give some setups a chance before moving. Good luck be safe.

      Anyone have a chance to play with these yet? I'm thinking of getting one to add a second unit to my boat. I have a hook 5 already and it is decent for what I use it for. Also, if I stay with just the original hook series, anyone know if there is a way to make a copy of the lake chip?
    • BrianF
      Cliff is right. If the upper jaw extends past the lower jaw or lip (aka an underbite), then it’s a whitefish. If the lower lip is even with or extends past the upper lip, then it’s a Cisco.  This according to the DNR website. Cisco’s also seem to have an irredescent hue to them vs. whitefish, which in Lake V have a slight brown/yellow hue to them. Hard to explain in words. Bleeding fish...plenty of YouTube videos on how to do it.  I gill them. Leaves your fillets pearly white and creates way less blood and slime during the fillet process. Many say the fillet tastes better too. 
    • IceHawk
      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.
