Transport Question.

5 posts in this topic

My son and I are going to South Dakota this weekend to hunt. On Friday we plan to hunt some WMA on the way out, since it's his first time out hunting I want to break him in with just the two of us, before we're out with a bigger group in so dak.

My question is if we do get one or two birds in Minnesota how do we transport without taking away from our legal bag limit in South Dakota? Thanks.

The only way to stay safe that I can think of would be to drop your Minnesota birds off at a locker plant and have them store the birds for you until you return. This doesn't help you once you get back to Minnesota with both birds from both states. Otherwise bring the grill or fry pan and have some fresh duck for lunch. Nothing better than a hot meal on a cold morning at the tailgate. A little garlic and some Lowrys and fry or grill them. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. cool.gif

I think if you dress them properly, leaving a wing or head attached (check the regs to be sure) and have a valid MN license in possesion, you'll be fine.

Think about the opposite, if I goto SoDak to hunt pheasants and five days later come back with 15 birds, do I have to stop at the border and eat them all??? NO! As long as I have a SoDak license and the attached head I'm good to travel anywhere.

If you leave the head and wing and have a license your fine.

I am leaving for South Dakota on Friday also. I will be hunting both North and South Dakota everyday. It is leagal if you do it by the book. If all goes well I could come back with 27 roosters.

Don't forget option three which is to leave one leg attached. I do this so I don't have to worry about the feathers when it comes time to prepare the pheasant for the table. All you have to do is lop off the last leg rinse and cook.

      Go down to MG and they will steer you in the right direction.  I know that  different release is used for braid.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.

      I've never used boards, what are the best boards to use with braid? I'll be using them on Superior and for eyes inland... I've heard the offshore ones need their clips upgraded to use with braid.
