Sartell Angler, Have you checked out the video Border Patrol? I think this kind of DVD is what your talking about and its Minnesota hunting. Scheels in Mankato has them in stock, one of the few in the area.

I didn't buy it. Found the pic surfing the net and stole it. OOops! I have always thought it was a challenge shooting those little guys diving in or swooping by at 70mph. Seen this picture of a Baikal and thought someone would have a cool hunting story about them. California may be the closeest place for us to get one? Cool looking guy isn't He? My den would invite him.

I don't want to dredge this topic back up again but I just watched Fallin' Skies 4 for the first time tonight and I really didn't see anything in that video that caused me much alarm.

There were 2, or 3, slow mo sequences where a duck got dusted twice. Was the 2nd shot intentional? Who knows. Was the 2nd shot from a different shooter who was tracking the same duck and pulled the trigger right after it got shot the first time? Who knows.

Yes, there were ducks getting dusted on the water. I wouldn't even say thats questionable as we hunt a ton of divers and they dive all they time if they are crippled. If a diver hits the water and appears to still be swimming in my blind, he's getting a follow up shot. Better than having a crippled duck dive and never come up.

I have not seen some of the previous videos that reference the "4th shell" but I would have no problem recommending this video to anyone. It might not be the most exciting video in the world, but hey, its a $10 video at Wal-Mart. Most of the hunting action seams appropriate and what would occur in a real life hunting situation.

Like I said earlier, the Duckmen series of videos is way more graphic than any video I have watched with Foiles.

did you fail to notice the canadian goose being shot on the ground, in the decoys at like 5 yds??? Guess so.

At 5 yrds I bet he didn't have to chase the cripple like I did this weekend! Left the gun in the blind, 15 minutes later and several attemps brought me back to the blind to retrieve the gun. I would have shot the thing at 1 yard after that laugh.gif

It wasnt a cripple, it was just a bird that landed in the decoys. Guess my ethics are just a little different.

I've shot on the ground & I've shot em in the air.

They all taste the same once they are ground up into lunchmeat.

As to Jeff Foils calls.Straight Meat rocks!

I agree his calls are pretty awesome! However, after who ever it was on fallin skies 4 ground pounded that goose in that field at 5yds, I highly doubt there was anything left to salvage. People need to start respecting the life of the animal they are choosing to kill.

      Jim Curlee  Absolutely everything you said about the SunMar is true for the Biolet. Experienced it all.

      Much of MN has been seeing strong storms every couple days over the last week but that hasn’t slowed out Leech Lake Walleye Guides from getting on the fish. Not a ton has changed since last week fishing Leech Lake out of Walker MN. However, we did notice a pattern change in the bait of choice. Both Lindy rigging and pulling cranks have changed a bit.   Much like last Week we are still focusing on Lindy rig fishing. The water temp has dropped back into the lower 70s which has the fish looking for leeches again and less likely to hit crawlers.   The humps of Walker bay have been producing numbers of Walleye but not the best for size. Most of our fish have been coming in the 10-17 feet of water.   One tip we did pick up on is using a pink hook for your leech rig. This set up has been out fishing others 3-1. Try to keep your boat in the .5-.7 mph range. This can be tough on the windy days but the new Ulterra has pulled its weight on the guide boat.   Our Walker MN Walleye guides are still pulling cranks with success.    #5 Rapalas in perch and Bleeding Copper flash have been good for us as of late. As you can see from the picture the perch are ripe for eating and the walleyes are chasing them. Target the 9-12 feet of water range and just about 2 mph has been a sweet spot for us. Like always the lake and the bite is the best when you have cloud cover or a breeze. This time of year the fish spook easily when the viability is good similar to calm and sunny days.   We do have a few openings left for August and September so give us a call to book your next trip or to stay up to date with our latest reports   Visit LeechLakeGuideService.com

      Nice work gents! Looks like the back-end of summer bite is heating up. Love this time of year as we head into Sept. How is the water level with all the storms passing through? Has looked rainy lately. Last I was up was early July after that 8" rain storm and the levels were back up to normal after being low in June.

      Good luck fishing! Im also fond of fly fishing. I find it easier to fish when you have the best fly fishing rods. If youre looking to upgrade your rod, you can check here.

      Seven specie day today.  Live bait not required!  Couple of things of note...   I caught eight nice crappies this morning on a deep rock reef, along with a bunch of plump gills. Seems odd, but I’ll take it.  This afternoon, I targeted ciscos and whitefish out over the basin. Success!  Was happy since I now know whitefish can be targeted year round, not just thru the ice.  I also enjoyed the challenge of a different species that not many folks know about.  Was a unique and fun experience.  By the way, everything I caught was immediately released.

      Congratulations on your retirement bfisherman11! I hope you enjoy every moment of it!

      Our week (7/25-8/1) wasn't greatly productive fish wise but I could never really get a pattern to work. I usually use a lindy rig with a half crawler. When we did try jig/minnow not much either. The start of the week the wind was tough to hold on a spot. Later we had no wind and high temps. I marked some surface temps that were like 78 deg, that's pretty warm.   I went down to Brule narrows one day, never been before. Picked a reef and caught a 19" eye pretty quick and then boat control got to be an issue.   Might try a week in Sept once I am retired (Friday is my last day) but I sure miss the ability to fish north of the border.   Bill

      Thanks Jim. I value all opinions, because I really don't want to spend the cash on a subpar product that makes my life worse!

      What is the best time of year for brookies. I've tried spring but waters too cold, summer, bugs bad but fishing good. Never tried fall but I am think that might be the ticket. Usually use worms but sometimes spinner. Is there a special trick to keep the chubs away? Lots of them in my creek.
