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.

      Headed up this weekend.  Just curious if the bait of choice is still rainbows/chubs?  Still getting fish in the 18-30 FOW range?  Thanks.

      I spend a lot of time in the early summer after bass. Always have used a fluorocarbon leader and for me the best color has been white. I use a grub or a variety of tubes. Rock piles or points/saddles off islands etc. Sometimes narrow channels also. As far as traffic, we are spoiled! Compared to other lakes there is very little traffic on Vermilion. If you go to the river there is no HP limit. Good luck.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282
