Recommended Posts

I am so sick of that attitude i could scream. Well i did one better over the weekend. We had some guys move in on us on Saturday night. On Sunday am they packed up and left about the time we were leaving. Well they left a pile on the lake 8 green gas cyliders, spit cups with spit, food wrapers and all kinds of junk. well i pikced it up and wouldnt you know it they were pulled up to one of our fine resorts. well it took the garbage bags and dumped the crap in the back of thier truck when i noticed the window open a bit well it was unlocked so i put the last one scattered throughtout the front of the truck. We then went in and grabbed a cup of coffee. I told the guy he forgot something on the lake and i put it in the front of his truck. he thanked me and i laughed. well he came out after us and blew a gasket. I am 6'4" and 325 pounds and spent 4yrs in the Marines so i just laughed. He sure was pissed. I made a mess of his truck but did no permanant damage. Guys lets Keep this and every lake clean. call people to task if you see them litter. We have a butiful state lets keep it that way.

I'm not nearly your ample size and have done the same to some slobs in the past. The looks on their face was priceless. No problems, they were speechless that somebody called them on their mess. I will continue to do it whenever the chance presents itself, f--- 'em if the cant take a joke. I have very little patience for this behavior all they need to know is I have their license # and that ends all complaints. Deal with me or the Conservation Officer. By the way, nice job now if we could get more people to think the same way

i like the idea but i would not advise anyone to do what you did. There are some loony people out there and you never know what they may do if you do that to the wrong person. There are things that your size cannot protect against. As I am sure you are well aware of.

Just curious, how old were these guys? I have a theory on litterbugs. I am 56 and when I was young and impressionable they had a great campaign in advertising and on TV. Most of you my age remember it. "Every litter bit hurts" and others. It helped and you saw a reduction in the amount of people tossing their stuff. Now when I see someone unwrap a candy bar and toss the wrapper in a crowd, or throw a big gulp drink cup out there car window I try to see how old they are. Most are young. If you tell them they shouldn't do that they look at you like your'e crazy. Parents have to school their kids in this and other bad habits. Maybe it's just because I am getting older but 3 things have really changed since I was young. Manners in general, cursing in public and littering.

Dont be too quick to blame young people. I am only 21 and respect the rules a lot more than my elder friends. I think everyone needs to clean up garbage even if its not your own. Its easy to blame but hard to help. right.

Being a slob is pretty much an upbringing thing(well most of the time).

I agree that "younger people" will show poor judgement time to time due to lack of experience, but it would be their mentors and parents responsibillity to help get them straight from the start. There were plenty of examples of "older people" demonstrating their poor judgement skills as well. I spent the entire weekend on the lake, along with both of my kids, and they had the opportunity to witness and cleanup some of the "poor judgement" but also were rewarded for their efforts to help keep it clean and prep the way for the next crop of fisherman. I say we all need to lead by example. It says more to stop and pickup that box, can bottle or whatever it is and dispose of it at the next earliest convience than to just blow on buy and (Contact Us Please) about it.

They were in thier 30's. I am mid 40's and i was not the least bit afraid. I knew that they were not the gang banger type with guns. I just did not care i was sooooo PEED OFF at them that i just thought it was time to teach them a lesson. They had left over a full garbage bag full of garbage on the lake. There is no excuse for that.

You are soooo right-glad to hear that you taught them a lesson!!! The same piggish things happen year round-deer hunting people dumping deer bones and hides on your property so that your dog gets into it and gets sick. People throwing their junk in the lake because "they don't live here" and throwing garbage out the window so it ends up in my yard!!! ARGH!!!!

Thank You!!!

it is an upbringing thing, if I did that as a kid I would have got it, and if mine do it they WILL get it.

Hey loupesi, I was not trying to say all young people are litterers, merely making the observation on how a generation was affected by an advertising campaign and the erosion of manners in general. Certainly there are exceptions. No intention to offend anyone.

Yup, I'm 43 and most people my age will remember these ad campaigns.

Woodsy the Owl's slogan was:

Give a Hoot, ---'- -------

Also burned into my memory is the image of a native american on horseback with a tear in his eye when he sees a littered area.

Mjen, I am not offended by your comment just simply stating that every "age group" litters, and that its easy to complain about it and blame other people, but harder to acctually help and lead by example. About the upbringing thing, I dont think that how you were raised has anything to do with littering. If your dad, or whoever, does not tell you not to litter when you are young, dont blame him. Its your fault that you are littering. Its simply education. If you know what littering does to the environment and the lakes you fish then lets hope you are smart enough not to do it. Its up to you to learn about this stuff and not for you daddy to teach you. If you dont know than i dont think you should be fishing or hunting.

Yes, it IS about personal responsibility.

However IT IS a Dad's job to teach his children personal responsibility. A lot of problems in today's society are due to dads neglecting that responsibility.

That being said, it's still a poor excuse for an adult who's littering. Yes, there are plenty of other places that he could have/ should have learned along the way that littering is unacceptable.

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.
    • IceHawk

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger. 
    • Wanderer
      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.
    • smurfy
