I had to(got to) dipatch one Monday that had been hit by a car or something and was hiding on the back of my property. That night I had 5 or 6 of them howling in the back yard at 3:45am.

The pups are very active and learning their voices now. They have been extremely active and annoying. There is a litter near my house and they need to go. Just came back from a walk and learned where they are playing and what they are eating, eating lots of plums from the fenceline, corn and looks to be mice. They are aparently used to gunshots from living so close and that does not deter them from howling every night. maybe the scent from my walk will keep em quiet tonight. I'm thinking snares, bombs, or anything that will shut them up!

Not much chance on seeing them with the corn 8 feet tall around their play area. The spotlight hasn't revealed any of their eyes. Kinda disheartening after feeding the pheasants last winter to not even hear one crow. I think they took care of the hens as well, none along my road in the wet mornings! We definitely need some intense predator control around here!

Well if Randy is going to help with situation, I would like to say anyone west and southwest of the Cities can send me an email to help with the removal of any coyotes. grin.gif I broke down and bought a new Electronic caller (Minaska M1 bandit)and am looking to get some blood on it.

My calling partners (3 of them) and I are all teachers, so weekday trips are out of the question, although evenings are a possibility. We don't want deer/pheasant/turkey/duck hunting permission. Just coyote and fox. We are not trappers, nor do we run the coyotes with dogs, just hand calls and electronic calls. I would say we are discrete, but I am way to big to be called discrete.

Randy, I know that everything is huntable from town to stowe lake, the residents are all annoyed by the coyotes. Once the crops are out, it will limit their cover. there is a den 300 yards N of my house, as well as in the abandoned farmsite half mile N. Any time you want to set up a hunt, let me know and I'll arrange access to all the land I can, Pretty much unlimited for coyotes. I'm kinda looking forward to getting back into night calling in the winter. Been a while since I did it seriously. Brent

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge

      This is close to home for me. I love the dunes, but the refuge is messed up. The refuge told me they were brining native game birds back, so I was excited and said sharptailed grouse and the guy looked and me and said no ringnecked pheasants. I laughed at him and said really he said yes really. I told him ringnecked pheasants are invasive species he argued they are native and I walked out shaking my head.    The refuge could be a strong hold for sharptailed grouse, prairie chickens, and water fowl if they managed for them. The dune could extend this area.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch
