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

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
