Outdoors Amendment

5 posts in this topic

What does everyone think about the bill that is being considered to add an ammendment to the state constituton funding the outdoors and the arts? I personally am opposed to it because they just had to tack on the arts portion of it. It is frustrating that the arts people had to attach their agenda to a bill that has been worked on by a lot of sportman groups and friends of the outdoors. I would really like to see the so called arts people stand on their own two feet and do their own work. This is a classic example of the work of the many benefiting the few. Everyone benefits from preserving the outdoors while significantly fewer folks benefit from the arts.

Ditto! I think you nailed it, Slip_Sinker.

I also agree with your thinking, but unfortunately I do not think that the "arts" people plan to detatch themselves from what they see as a "sure thing" bill! frown.gif

I am sick and tired of the way our legislatures add all of these "tag ons" to bills that should be passed. This is common practice in both the house and senate. This is the only way that many of these groups would ever recieve the funding that they do. I am in no way "anti-arts" but I just don't think that these two things should be tied together.

Just my two cents!

There is a move to boycott your area for tourism since your state senator voted to kill the amendment. Clean water=tourism. This is becoming big.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
