Thanks to the guys who helped me out.

We nearly had a similar incident a few weeks ago. I went with a buddy to canoe down the St. Croix up in the St. Croix State park area. We were paddling and fishing and my buddy had his 7 month old retriever in the front of the canoe with him. She sat still for probably 5 hours and 59 minutes out of the 6 hour trip.

As we paddled back up stream to unhook my rapala from a log my firend put his rod off to the side and let his lure hang over the side of the canoe. It was proably about a foot above the water and 2 feet over the edge of the canoe so we thought it would be well out of reach of the dog. But she saw the pretty orange dangly thing and just had to have it so she dove off the side of the canoe to grab it. It ended up hitting her in the chest,luckily it only got tangled in her fur. But she freaked out when she realized there was a pretty good current in the spot we were in and she had to swim hard to get back to the canoe. But we got her pulled back in and got the trebble hook out of her fur and she was fine the rest of the trip.

I guess she needs a little more training yet.

I talked with my Dad and father-in law about their experience at the dock late one night with whom I now believe to be you and your companion. My Dad was very impressed with the dogs patience while he removed hooks. Glad the dog is doing well and I'll pass it on to both of them.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
