What a nice guy

Recommended Posts

Phill Aldahl

As I was walking out of the woods tonight, at a local WMA, I was checked by a CO. Turned out to be a great guy. He checked my license asked me if I had been having any luck, which I haven't, haven't seen a deer since pheasant opener. Anyways he asked about a few permenant stands that are out there. He also said obviously I didn't since I had my chair in my hand. Anyways I ended up forgetting my chair in the parking area. He took the time to find my phone number call me up and drop it off at my house less than an hour later. What a guy. Next time you see a CO tell them what a great job they are doing, no only keeping everyone safe and legal, but going out of their way to help someone out.

the only time people think cos and cops are aholes is when they are on the wrong side of the law. sure some may be dimbats, but its probably dealing with (Contact Us Please) day in and day out that starts to take a toll on them.

Phill!

I think I know where you were hunting? grin.gif I do not know, but there have been a rash of perms on the WMA's around where I live and I think CO's are on top of it!

Great to hear of this! I met up with a CO tonight and they were in full force and patrolling land area's you would not even think of , in their tricked out new 4 wheelers. The wheelers are deck out to the max!

All I know, is there are going to be some boggled old guys and poachers surprised this year!

Stay on there good side and they do check up on FM!

I wish i had got a pic of the CO on the Wheeler! He looked pretty cool! cool.gif

I hope he reads this post. I told him how much I appreciated it, but how many other people tell him that and are full of it. Now only if the deer would coopoperate. I have been out over 40 times already and have only seen 6 deer while on stand. With all the people walking these WMA I think the deer have moved out or move by night. Oh well what can you do but keep trying. By the way the land was a few miles north of Mankato on 169.

I really believe that almost all CO's are very nice guys and all they are doing is trying to protect our resources for the sportsmen and women. I'm sure that the day after day of abuse takes it toll.

What would one have left for fish and game if the DNR was not out watching the ones that dont follow the rules???

These guys and gals are human also and will have their bad days to.

I was going to my uncles house in Ham Lake last Friday. Got off work early and brought the dog over. I thought hey lets stop off at Carlos Avery.

So the dog and I took off along a field. Orange hat and no gun.

A female CO stopped and looked at us when we were a couple hundred yards in the field. My lil puppy is only 3 1/2 months so she is full of excitment.

When we got close to the parking area my lil puppy saw her and went nuts. She was extremely nice and told me where to go to kick up a pheasant to help out the dog. I was very impressed at her demenor, professionalism and personality.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?
    • Slopfishin
      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
