Hunting method restriction

Recommended Posts

colonel42

This is out of the 2007 MN hunting regulation. Page 72 fouth bullet. The restriction does not apply to a person hunting their own property, when the person has not participated in, been involved with, or agreed to feeding wildlife on adjacent land owned by another person.

I work with a woman that tells me she can hunt over corn. Her explanation was a quote out of the MN regs. As I read it, it almost sounds like a land owner can do this. Any thoughts or am I reading this total wrong???

I think the key word here is "NOT". You can hunt near bait (not on your land) if you have not been involved in the placement of the bait. I believe this was added to the laws because some people would dump bait next to a neighbors property to pervent them from hunting there.

Luckey, you are correct. However, there are 2 other keys words that people seem to gloss over. Adjacent means next to and other means someone besides you.

Also, there have been several posts on this topic in the past. I think this horse is probably dead.

This is the quote that screws everyone up. The restriction does not apply to a person hunting their own property. In my book that tells me if I own property the restrictions of feeding (Baiting) is OK if I own the property I hunt. I sat in my stand the other day and read the book from cover to cover and there are a lot of things that can be misinterpreted. Kind of like legal papers you would receive from a lawyer. Mumbo jumbo.

I guess I don't see it that way. Reading the quote I in no way infer I can dump bait on land that is my own property and hunt over it. It talks about bait that is on adjacent land to your's that you had nothing to do with. So to me, its pretty clear you cannot bait on your own land from this quote.

I read it like this. If the neighboring landowner dumps a bunch of corn in the corner of his field, you can hunt by it as long as you are on your property and as long as you didn't help place it. Just my 2 cents

I agree, I think it is explicit in describing 'on adjacant land owned by another person'.

I would also be leary of hunting a corner of the field "knowing" that it is baited. IE: hunting in the corner directly across the line from someone who is knowingly baiting and you know they are baiting. I think that is stretching the law into some real gray area. You should/could be guilty by association. You know baiting is illegal and you did not report the activity but used it for your gain.

I think a CO might not look the other way as you are trying to circumvent the law by doing so. I think the law was written to protect those who are hunting their land and find a heavily used trail and take a deer off said trail. But the deer are using the trail solely to get to 'Joe Hunter's' deer bait on the adjacent property. This would absolve you from being ticketed for hunting bait. Because you did not know, nor did you participate in said activity on or off your land.

My perception...

Good Luck!

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.
