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.

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

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.

      Just wondering if anyone else that fishes the Root (especially below Lanesboro) has ever patterned or had any luck targeting sauger/eyes. This is my first year trying for them after hearing whispers for years and I've been surprised with my results. So far I've caught 5 sauger and 4 eyes out of the Root this year, a 17 inch Sauger and a 22 inch eye being my biggest so far. I know the river is a lot better known for trout but if anybody else has had any luck targeting other species I'd love to share reports or tactics.

      On the south end...  Anglers are pulling in nice catches of walleyes with some big trophy walleyes mixed in as well.  The MN Tournament Trail Walleye Tournament just finished their championship with the winning team putting up 80.99 lbs for 10 walleyes!  Water temps have dropped to the upper 50's, shiners are running and there is a lot of bait adjacent to shorelines, fall is here.  The jig bite has picked up tremendously, but pulling a spinner with a crawler or shiner along with trolling crankbaits is still effective. Along shore try 10-16' and out on the mud 22-28'.  Gold, glow and orange are strong this week. On the Rainy River...   More and more emerald shiners are entering the river this week.  Current on the river is slow.  Reports of some nice walleyes but still not the big run yet.  Most anglers are jigging with frozen shiners.  Trolling crankbaits or crawler harnesses still working and a good way to cover water. Sturgeon anglers focusing on deeper holes with a 3 ounce no roll sinker with an 18" snell of heavy line (60 lb) with a 4/0 circle hook loaded with crawlers and shiners.  Pike showing up on weed edges. Up at the NW Angle...  Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake staying and fishing in MN waters.  There are boat shuttle / passenger services available to the Angle.  Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for options.   As fall kicks in, many anglers jigging with good results.  Gold spinners with crawler or minnow also producing nicely.  Some really nice walleyes caught this week targeting structure and shorelines in 10 - 15' and 21 - 27'.  Muskies and big pike hitting topwater in weedy bays.  Some big crappies on small jigs in 15-30'.

      Just spent Thursday through Sunday at Becida near Bemidji. My dad, brother, nephew and I tried 7 different lakes. Nothing fantastic but a good time. Best walleye action was on Big Wolf and Andrusia.  14 to 16 ft water. We used mainly rainbows and left over leeches I had saved from summer. 11-18 inch walleyes. Also got some sunfish on Lake Hatti.  Did pick up 3 walleye on Lake Bemidji also.  4 conservation officers at gas station south of Bemidji on Friday morning said they were in town for security with POTUS visit.  Talked to a bait shop owner that said one group of 13 got 11 bear opening weekend. WOW that’s a lot of meat. Also saw a bobcat run across the road. And lots of deer in evenings.

      Lead core was on fire for us on Saturday on both the east and west end in 22-30' of water.  Five of us in two boats boated over 70 fish on Saturday.  A lot of 10-12"ers but enough keepers to fill 5 limits.  Biggest was 25".  We did great Sunday and today as well although not as hot as Saturday.  The only live bait fishing we did was with minnows on Lindy's.  Caught a few but honestly did not spend much time live rigging as the lead core bite was so hot.  Stomachs on most fish we cleaned were empty.  The ones with full stomachs had mostly small crayfish and minnows.

      Slow on leadcore for me,4 small fish a day...Frazer and Big Bay...
    • StateofHockey
      Fished on and off Thursday to Saturday, from Frazer to Big Bay, caught a few in the 15-19" range. best success was in 28-32' FOW drifting with bottom bouncers and spinners.  Bigger suckers out performed smaller rainbows.  If any one knows where to get some larger rainbows, that would be nice to know.
