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.

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs

      Vermilion is less than 20 miles... Or eagle nest 3 (and 1 and 2) are right next door.   You might check them out.

      Love seeing guys out training dogs but you can really do  some serious damage to your dogs neck if it runs hard for a long distance before being stopped suddenly when the check cord is attached to a collar. I would suggest a harness instead that has attachment at the back that you can clip your check cord to. It will also flow off the back and less likely to get tangled up in the legs and belly which can also be dangerous especially when in the water.   It doesnt look deep where you are but you never know whats under the water that could snag your check cord. Sorry dont mean to preach but I have seen it first hand where a dog has been seriously injured from this. I know the prey drive and hard charge these dogs have, but you got to keep them safe.   good luck

      Can you keep smallies from the Ottertail?  Thought there was a restriction on them in there.

      If I go on an infected water I get it cleaned regardless.  Granted 99% of the time I fish a non-infected lake but still get it cleaned just incase.
