Did anyone else see the ad in the Fargo Forum selling the ducks, geese and other wild game that said were legally taken in MN. I was always under the impression that it was illegal to sell wild game. Am I wrong assuming this? Either way, I don't think its right to sell birds this way.

Gotta hate people that will drop hunting/fishing ethics to make a dirty buck.

Even more so when it's illegal as I believe they would need to be a commercial entity - but deadhead should be able to shed some light on this.

Makes you wonder if it was actually taken legally.

I saw the ad and honestly, I have no idea what the heck it meant???? I first interpreted it like you did, then decided someone was confused or drunk and posted an ad. Kinda weird! crazy.gifsmirk.gif

I believe I saw the same add, could the person have meant, that he/she would pay a land owner (add directed to land owners) for each bird shot at the stated $ for each kind of bird shot on the land owners property?

minneman, I've seen that same ad in the DL paper; a hunter is willing to pay a landowner $6 for every goose that the hunter shoots, plus, some of the birds. I don't know if that's the same ad in the forum or not.

BTW, it is illegal to sell wild game. The way churches get around the wild game feed deal is that they charge "admission" or a suggested donation, which circumvents paying for the actual meal.

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
