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?

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?
    • Walleyeslayer25
      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.  
    • Neutz68
      Yep that's us... Cabin #2 and #3...  You part of the other group we chat with up there??

      Thanks for the reply.  Have had much time for research this year. Do you usually stay at pine tree cove?

      There are plenty of fun places to go and things to do this Memorial Day weekend at Minnesota state parks and trails.  Here are some last-minute travel-planning tips: Camping. Sites are still available. Reservations are now required for all overnight stays at Minnesota state parks and recreation areas, and many sites are already booked, but here are some options: — Check www.mndnr.gov/reservations more than once. There are often cancellations, and the inventory of available sites changes all the time. –Take advantage of the long weekend to explore Minnesota’s northwest territory. Sites are easier to come by at the state parks and recreation areas in that part of Minnesota, and there are plenty of reasons why it’s worth the drive: — Zippel Bay State Park is located on south shore of vast Lake of the Woods, with a white sand beach. — Lake Bronson State Park has an observation tower that people can climb for a bird’s-eye view of the woods and wildlife below. — Plan a route to include visits to other state parks along the way, such as a stop to see the Headwaters of the Mississippi River at Itasca State Park. — Pitch a tent at a state forest, where no reservations are needed (or taken). Campsites at state forest campgrounds are all first-come, first-served. Naturalist-led programs. There are more than 100 programs taking place at state parks and trails over Memorial Day Weekend. For example:
      — Guided tours will take place throughout the weekend (and continue daily through Labor Day) at Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park in southeastern Minnesota and at Lake Vermilion-Soudan Underground Mine State Park near Ely in the northeast. Because the cave and mine tours are underground, it won’t matter if it rains. Reservations recommended; visit www.mndnr.gov/reservations for more information, including times and prices. —   Free guided tours over, under and through the fascinating rock formations known as glacial potholes will be offered Saturday, Sunday and Monday from noon to 1 p.m. at Interstate State Park. No reservations required. —  Plus, live reptiles, voyageur canoe rides, star programs, and more. For complete listings, check the online calendar. Discovery hikes. Look for deer, birds and wildflowers along one of the many scenic trails at Minnesota state parks and recreation areas. Pick up a Hiking Club kit ($14.95 at park offices), look for “secret passwords” on signs along specially marked trails and earn rewards. Two-wheel tours. Bike one of Minnesota’s many paved state trails. They’re free and mostly flat, because many of them are former railroad routes, and many of them now have trailside tune-up stations, if there is a need to tighten brakes or pump up tires. Find a trailhead at www.mndnr.gov/biking. Paddling. There are 35 state water trails, the newest of which is the 20-mile Shell Rock River. Many of the campsites along Minnesota’s rivers are first-come, first-served and free. See bison. See one herd at Blue Mounds State Park in southwestern Minnesota (and attend a program at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, May 27, about how the park’s bison herd links directly to the millions of bison that once roamed North America). Or drive through the bison range and see the other herd at Minneopa State Park in Mankato. Fishing. Minnesota residents don’t need a license and can fish for free at most state parks. Many park offices also loan out free fishing equipment for visitors to use. Or for people who have a license, they can wet a line at more than 1,600 fishing piers throughout the state. To find a nearby fishing pier, search by lake or county in the A-Z list at www.mndnr.gov/fishing_piers. Geocaching. Try this high-tech treasure hunt. Many parks loan out GPS units and offer programs to get started, such as the Intro to Geocaching program from 10 to 11 a.m. Monday, May 29, at Wild River State Park. For information, contact the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday). Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Guided public tours of Soudan Underground Mine, the state’s first iron ore mine, will resume for the 2017 season on Memorial Day weekend. Tours will be offered from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, May 27 through Sept. 30, and on weekends only until Oct. 22 at Lake Vermillion – Soudan Underground Mine State Park near Tower.   Underground mine tours take visitors a half-mile down into the mine shaft in a hoisted “cage” and then for a three-quarter-mile train ride into the last and deepest area mined. Mine interpreters share information about the unique, high-quality iron formation and its contribution to the industrialization of the United States and the generations of people who worked in the mine from 1884 to 1962. “About 32,000 people take the underground mine tour each year, and it’s an experience you won’t find anywhere else in Minnesota,” said mine interpreter James Pointer. Guided tours are $12 for adults and $7 for children age 5-12. There is no cost for children under age 5. Hard hats are required and provided for underground tours, and visitors are encouraged to check the park Web page for suggestions about recommended footwear and clothing (it can be chillier than expected in the mine, because the temperature is 51 degrees Fahrenheit year-round). Visitors also can take a free, self-guided tour of the historic mining buildings that are above ground. For information about tours and reservations, visit www.mndnr.gov, email the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or call 888-646-6367 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday.
