Any word on the start of the Cutfoot Sioux stripping station?

Brainerd took the state's first eggs on Saturday. I would guess Cutfoot will be up and running by the end of the week. Call Grand Rapids area office 218-999-7821.

They put up the trap on Sunday and I assumed they started yesterday or today. I don't know if they allow observation but maybe if you park at the access on the other side of 46 and talk nice to the owners of Cutfoot Sioux Inn they'll let you observe a little closer to the action.

No need to park on the other side of 46. Drive into the Onegum (sp)camp grounds and walk right out on the dock. Unless things have changed the DNR has always let people come out and watch.

150 Quarts - Holy Smokes !!

Ya wonder if they missed out by a few days or more.

This is good for other lakes, but one wonders if it robs Winnie too much...

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
