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.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
