Just found out a couple weeks ago that I will be spending my 4-day MEA weekend (Oct. 19-22) at school for a search and rescue class. Going to miss the once-a-year trip with dad and uncles to SD for some great ringneck hunting. Just got into pheasant hunting about 3 yrs. ago and I absolutely love it. We hunt with one german short-hair and one german wire-hair. I'm gonna miss seeing those points and hearing that hawk screech. Good luck to anyone heading out that way, shoot a few for me!

Consider yourself lucky that you're only missing four days of the season. I just ruptured my Achille's tendon (completely torn apart) and I'm out for the entire season, NO pheasants, NO grouse, NO whitetails. This just sucks, I've got three excellent well trailed dogs I've been working on all summer. They won't even see a single bird this year. Hopefully I might be walking without crutches by Christmas. Leave some birds for next year!

I think you can get a permit from the DNR to hunt off a wheeler if you want. I know of a guy who was handicapped and he had a dog in to be trained from a trainer I know, to work from both his handicap van and off a wheeler. This dog quartered close to the wheeler for pheasant and grouse and he posted fields while sitting in the van on pheasant drives, the dog sat at heel outside. I thought the trainer told me he got an exemption to be able to shoot from a vehicle...

Good luck!

Ken

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
