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.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
