I would have hunted in the dekes if I were you!! Or better yet, "KINDLY" move them out of the way. When more than one group has permission to hunt the same field it's very bad form to leave the dekes out while you are gone. That's a good way to get your dekes "KINDLY" stacked in fresh Cow sh--!

Don't want to cause problems or anything, I just think that the person that is more commited to that field should have more rights to hunt it. Giving that we where there this morning and hunted and so on. me and my friend have had crappy luck getting permission to hunt fields, and now we have permission from the owner to hunt a couple of his fields it just kind sucks to see someone leave dekes out, instead of first come first serve.

we're in the same boat with one of our spots...the guys leave their decoys out all year in the same field because they think this serves as a reservation of sorts--I think it is bush league because half the days they don't show up and it just wastes a field we would have had permission to hunt and confuses the geese in the area. Some people man...

Delta, didn't mean to cause any problems. We left the decoys out last night because it was raining and it didn't make sense to us to pick up all our decoys as we were also going to hunt that field this morning as we thought we were the only ones hunting there. I graduated with Mohr's kid and have had permission sense mid June to hunt any one of there fields. This is were the confusion and miss-communication comes in. Mohr gave me permission and then never mentioned it to his dad, and also said that sense we were going to hunt there he wasn't going to let anyone else in. Well he didn't tell his dad until just about a week ago. In that time his dad gave you guys permission to hunt there I'm guessing. So as far as we knew we were the only ones hunting the feilds. confused.gif. I will take part the blame as I should have made sure that his dad knew. Again by no means did we plan on causing any trouble and apolgize that we did!!

Delta we did not know that anyone else was going to be out there, when we talked to you last night we thought you were just cruising through, if you would have mentioned something we could have worked something out. After Mohr's son told us that someone else had permission he also said that they would only be hunting on opener and then during the week. Big misunderstanding I guess.

To everyone who said they would sit in there decoys or move them into some cow s*it..............grow up

riverrat56, If you are not the only person that has permission to hunt then it is a horrible thing to do to leave your decoys out. I would take that as a sign that you think you have more rights to the area than other people that also have permission to hunt there. I have seen this many times, and it often leads to the farmer not letting anyone hunt there becuase of guys that pull that kind of crap.

Now, if you honestly thought you were the only people with permission (which sounds like your case, sorry) than that's a different story. You thought you were okay leaving them out, and sounds like you guys worked it out which is good to see!

I guess I was a little harsh because the private land I hunt I know the farmers real well, and this has happened to me and the farmer has told me to go ahead and hunt in the decoys, or toss them along the fence line, or do whatever you want with them, they shouldn't have been left out there. And if they show up and have a problem, send them over to the barn, or up to the house and I'll take care of it.

Anyway, I didn't mean to come off as a bad azz, this topic just hit me as I have delt with this in the past. Usually if not worked out between the hunters it ends with a lost field for all. Farmers don't have the time in the fall for anything like that.

I'm not entirly sure as to what we doing yet, if there is geese there we going to hunting it, or if a couple of the field that we have permission for are holding geese, I'll have to way out our options. Is it going to be just the two of you? Because the way the geese have been standing in the fields, the more hunters the better. The geese are just standing in a line aggressivly feeding. I know that Catmaster said he had some GHG fullbodies, well I have 6 GHG and 4 Final approach Lookers. I'm not going to use any of my shells. Just let me know, as to what you wanna do, if you just want to join us or do your own thing?

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!

      Thanks Del, my son and some friends are coming up this weekend for water sports fun!!

      I have had very good success the past few days using my standard lindy/1/2 crawler rigs. All fish were caught in sand/rock transition areas in 16' to 24' depths. Mornings were best from 8:00am to noon. Key factors were to look for pods of fish before even dropping a line! Some fish would bite and some would not. I did not spend much time on pods that would not bite! 2 passes and I was gone if we did not get a fish! Found many fish in spots that I have not fished all summer! Dumb ones I guess! Still tasted the same though! Cliff

      I hunt these WMA's routinely. It's not as bad as they say. Most of the time you're fine but you have to be prepared to have your hunt completely ruined and be able to laugh it off and move on. The land belongs to all of us. That said, if someone actually shot at a squirrel in a tree I'm sitting in, I might be tempted to shoot back.(kidding!)  Hard to imagine that really happened! I would say 75% of the time you have these places to yourself. It helps to pick areas that are a little harder to walk into.

      I'd love to do this. I've never hunted them as we didn't have any where I'm from. Do you know if this opportunity is for a wild pheasant or a pen raised bird?

      Tough weekend fishing for me.  Caught only 5 walleyes.  I didn't see anybody else find a good bite around me.  I couldn't keep the crayfish and perch off my crawler.  I must have caught 20 crayfish and 10 perch for every walleye I caught.

      Youth ages 12 to 15 can apply to hunt waterfowl under the guidance of experienced mentors on Minnesota Youth Waterfowl Day on Saturday, Sept. 9.  “Helping a kid learn to hunt is a great way to share your skills and show what the outdoors have to offer,” said Mike Kurre, mentoring program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Ducks Unlimited, the U.S. National Wildlife Service, Minnesota Horse & Hunt Club, the Fox Lake Conservation League, the DNR and others have teamed up to offer the hunts, which will take place in four areas:     Southern Twin Cities metro area locations.     Sherburn private land between Fairmont and Windom.     Private land in Fergus Falls.     Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge near Zimmerman and Princeton. Application forms must be received at the DNR central office by Friday, Aug. 18. Applicants will be drawn in a lottery if a hunt is oversubscribed, with preference given to novice hunters. Successful applicants will be notified as soon as possible and must attend an orientation on Friday, Sept. 8, in the location for which they were chosen. Applications and more details about the hunt are available online at mndnr.gov/discover and by contacting Kurre at 651-259-5193 or michael.kurre@state.mn.us.

      Youth and families can apply through Monday, Aug. 21, to learn how to hunt pheasants with experienced hunters in October.  “These hunts can be the building blocks for a lifetime of rich experiences in the field,” said Mike Kurre, mentoring program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “Find out about equipment and skills you need to have safe and rewarding hunts.” Youth must be 12-17 years old as of the date of their hunt, have earned a firearms safety certificate and possess a small game license if required. Youth must have a parent, guardian or adult authorized by a parent or guardian accompany them as a mentor, without a firearm. The adult must also attend with the youth during the pre-hunt orientation. In the family hunt, all participants can hunt, but they need to be 12 and older, have little to no pheasant hunting experience, and have the appropriate safety certificate, stamp and license. The hunts are provided through Pheasants Forever and the DNR. Applications and more details about the hunt are available online at mndnr.gov/discover by contacting Kurre at 651-259-5193 or michael.kurre@state.mn.us. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth can apply to hunt deer in select state parks and other refuge areas during 16 special deer hunts in October and November.  “These special hunts provide the opportunity for parents or other adult mentors to go afield with youth to hunt deer,” said Mike Kurre, Department of Natural Resources mentoring coordinator. “Deer hunting can be an extremely positive experience for youth.” Youth have through Friday, Aug. 18, to apply for the hunts. Of the 16 special hunts, 14 are firearms hunts for youth ages 12 to 15, and two are archery hunts for youth ages 12 to 17. Participation in other deer hunting seasons remains an option for youth who take part in the special youth deer hunts, but any deer harvested count against the youth’s season bag limit. An adult parent, guardian or mentor must accompany the youth at all times while hunting, but only the youth may hunt. Both youth and mentor must attend a mandatory pre-hunt orientation. A limited number of either-sex permits are available for each hunt. However, for the hunts in Buffalo River, Camden and Lake Shetek state parks youth need to harvest an antlerless deer before getting a permit to harvest a buck. Youth must apply for the hunt of his or her choice, which can be done anywhere DNR licenses are sold, at the DNR License Center, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, or online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense. For archery hunts, apply with code 630; for firearms hunts, apply with code 631. If the number of applications exceeds the number of permits, the DNR will randomly draw names to choose participants. Youth may apply for one archery hunt and one firearms hunt. Successful applicants also must meet all firearms safety requirements, purchase appropriate licenses and follow hunting regulations. In addition to the 16 application-only hunts in state parks and refuge areas, any youth ages 10 to 15 also can participate in the youth deer season that runs Oct. 19-22, in 27 permit areas that encompass portions of southeastern and northwestern Minnesota and portions of the Twin Cities metro area. More information and a list of hunts and orientations can be found at mndnr.gov/discover. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
