You are obviously invoking the 48 hr rule grin.gif I almost got caught when mine noticed the color screen on the h2o c, "umm, never noticed that before" she said. whew! close one there. The regular h2o was a birthday present she spent alot of time picking out. I didn't have the heart, at the time, to tell her I really wanted the color.

Boar, the 4.0 is infared as well if that makes a difference. Moultrie came out with two new models, the 4.0 and the 6.0, both of which are no flash infared cameras. Great bang for the buck compared to many of the other companies. Good luck!

I'm not even going to tell you what I did, she'd kill me if she found out, but it involves a new benelli. When we got married I had 3 guns, I'm up to nine, she is none the wiser. I think that they are reproducing. Good luck with the trail cam. The cabela's merchandise money can be a good deal, I got 100 bucks in free merchandise.

I just got a set of Nikon Monarch Binoculars this weekend. My wife came home to find me playing with them. Of course she came through the front door instead of the garage, otherwise I would have heard the garage door and been able to hide them. I was in it deep, so I replied, honey you need to back up I can't focus in on you at this distance. She is nine months pregnant and didn't think it was as funny as I did. I almost got smacked.

The short story 'gun running' by Patrick McManus should be required reading for all those interested in acquiring new firearms. I think it was in the book "Grasshopper Trap", circa mid-1980's.

She started laughing. She has a good sense of humor about it, but there were a few seconds in there where I thought my life might be over. Lets just say it cost me though. We went shopping for cloths for her and the baby the rest of the day.

I take the safe way out. I ask her for everything!! If she says no I ask again later. cool.gif I learn that from my 6 and 9 year old.

If I happen to buy something out of "need" or I just see something I always tell her ASAP. She is going to find out anyway.

There was one time I bought $80 of discounted fishing lures I forgot about. I asked her if I could go get some Fishing lures and she replies with... "Why not pretend to go, walk into the computer room and pull out the (insert naughty word here) bag from the LAST TIME!" It was like Christmas all over again!

      Wondering if this coming Memorial Day weekend would be a good weekend to come up or if the fishing is slow?  Would love to have the kids catch some easy walleye if possible.

      Got a reply from the DNR to my last question, which included a reference to tournaments. She forwarded my question to another and I'm still waiting for that reply.

      A region-wide effort to better understand West Nile virus in ruffed grouse is getting underway in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.  “In the Great Lakes region, West Nile virus has been found in a small number of grouse with no known population-level effects at this point,” said Charlotte Roy, grouse project leader with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “Still, we want to let hunters know we’re in the first steps of monitoring the virus, and we’re planning to do some limited testing of birds this fall.” In 2017, West Nile virus was identified in more ruffed grouse in the Great Lakes states than in the past. The virus has been present in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin for about 17 years. West Nile virus has been documented in more than 250 species of birds; however, not all birds develop clinical disease from the virus. Corvids (including blue jays and crows) are very prone to illness and death from the virus, while other species may be less so or may not develop symptoms at all. Last year, Michigan had 12 positive cases of West Nile virus in ruffed grouse. Prior to 2017, only one positive ruffed grouse had been found in Michigan, and that was in 2002. The virus was confirmed in one ruffed grouse in the early 2000s in Minnesota, and is yet to have been detected in a Wisconsin ruffed grouse. West Nile virus in ruffed grouse has become a topic of concern because of a recent study in Pennsylvania reporting that the virus may have contributed to population declines in areas of lower-quality habitat or where habitat was scarce. Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin are in the early stages of planning to test samples from grouse this fall but at this point there is no evidence that the virus is having a population-level impact in the Great Lakes region. “By monitoring birds at a regional level, we will be able to gain a better understanding of this disease in ruffed grouse,” said Kelly Straka, state wildlife veterinarian with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Ruffed grouse are hunted annually by around 300,000 hunters across the three states. Preliminary reports from 2017 hunters were mixed across the Great Lakes region. While the virus could impact brood survival of grouse, other factors such as cold, wet springs during nesting and hatching; drought conditions; or habitat decline can also affect birds seen and harvested. Biologists in the region are optimistic that the great habitat for ruffed grouse in the Great Lakes states will help populations thrive despite the virus. “We are looking to hunters and outdoor enthusiasts to help us in this endeavor,” said Mark Witecha, upland wildlife ecologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. “This is an excellent example of agencies and organizations taking a proactive approach and working together to expand our knowledge about WNV and ruffed grouse.” Recently, the Midwest Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies Health Committee held its annual meeting in Traverse City, Michigan. West Nile virus was one of the topics for state wildlife health leaders. More than 25 wildlife health professionals from 13 Midwestern states and Canada were in attendance. Individual agencies are currently reviewing ways they will be monitoring their grouse populations for West Nile virus, and additional information will be shared when more details are determined. Like humans, wild animals can be exposed to West Nile virus and survive the exposure. Currently, there is no evidence of humans becoming infected by consuming properly cooked birds or by handling birds. Research has shown dogs can be infected but are very resistant to developing clinical signs of the disease and are considered an end host. Ruffed grouse hunting is open in the fall and Minnesota hunting information can be found at mndnr.gov/hunting/grouse. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      An angler from Stillwater has set a new record for lake sturgeon in the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ catch-and-release category.  Jack Burke and fishing buddy Michael Orgas were recently on a lake sturgeon fishing trip to remember. Fishing on the Rainy River in Koochiching County, the duo was having a lot of success fishing for Minnesota’s biggest fish, landing 20 fish in three days including six lake sturgeon over 60 inches before hooking into the new state record – a 73-inch long lake sturgeon. “We had been having some great action and knew there were big fish in the Rainy River,” Burke said. “This particular fish took about 45 minutes to reel in. When we got it closer to the boat it blew some bubbles and came to the top; I knew it was a huge fish!” Burke caught the fish on May 4, around 11 a.m. using a muskie rod supplied by his fishing partner Orgas, with 80-pound braided line rigged with a circle hook and crawlers. The fish measures 73 inches in length and 30 inches in girth. This beats the previous record by 3 inches that was set by two separate anglers who both boated 70-inch fish on the same day in April 2017. There are two kinds of Minnesota state records: one for catching and keeping the biggest fish in each species based on certified weight; and the other for the length of a caught and released muskellunge, northern pike, lake sturgeon or flathead catfish. The DNR announces new state records in news releases, on social media and on the DNR website. Find current records and guidelines for each type of state record at mndnr.gov/recordfish.

      I went out on Saturday for about 5 hours and my friend and I caught a lot of crappies but they were mostly all dinks (8-10 inchers).  We only caught 4 of them over 10 inches.  Plus a few small bass and one pike.  We released all of them.  Water temp was right around 60, a little warmer up shallow in a bay.

      Avid angler Dustin Stone caught a new state record silver redhorse in the certified weight category of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ record fish program.  Stone caught the 10-pound, 6-ounce silver redhorse while fishing for lake sturgeon on the Rainy River in Koochiching County on April 28. He was fishing with 80-pound braided line tipped with a night crawler. “We had been doing very well fishing for sturgeon, landing seven fish over the 60-inch mark,” Stone said. “We started catching a bunch of suckers and redhorse before this fish, so this fish felt quite a bit bigger than the others.” Fortunately for Stone, his fishing buddy had extensive knowledge about fish like silver redhorse, and Stone almost released the fish until his partner advised him to check the weight and current record on that species of fish. The new state record silver redhorse was weighed on a certified scale at a meat shop in Granite Falls, where two observers witnessed the weighing. Two DNR fisheries experts in the Ortonville office confirmed the species identification of silver redhorse. The official weight is 10-pounds, 6-ounces with a length of 26-3/4 inches and a girth of 17-1/2 inches, beating the previous state record of 9-pounds, 15-ounces held since 2004. “I’m glad the DNR does this record fish program. It’s fun to see the records. I’m kind of addicted to this now and I’m going to try and break a couple more!” Stone said.
