Woo hoo my first band, plus a hunting report

5 posts in this topic

We were on our annual hunt at Lac qui parle last weekend and I got my first goose band. The goose was 12.8 lbs, I haven't called the # yet to get the tagging info. The cool thing was it had a band on each leg. One leg had a serial number and a phone number to call for info. The other leg had a band that said reward $100. The CO I talked to said to ask where to send it when I call for info on the other band and they will send me a check for $100. It is the sweetest $100 I have ever made. grin.gifgrin.gif

Now for the report, 6 of us got 9 geese and 18 pheasants over 2 and half days. Not bad for my pointer puppies first pheasant hunting ever. I sure can't wait to go back again next year cool.gifgrin.gif Now its deer hunting time grin.gif

If you don't need the money you will get. Turn around and give to a conservise club like Ducks umlimed or delta waterfowl. To help the ducks out. laugh.gif

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
