Potential Trespassers Are Back!

First off, nothing against road hunters or that method of hunting. Pefectly legal and acceptable - IF you follow the law. Saw several trucks with orange occupants cruising the township roads near our property again this year, as I do every other year looking for deer. It wouldn't really bother me much if I knew they had permission to pull their trucks over, step into one of the many woodlots or fields off of the road and legally take a deer. But I know for a fact they do not have permission to hunt our land or any of the land surrounding it. And in many cases, they'd be shooting into woods containing cabins and year-round houses. blush.gif You have to be covered in orange to walk down your own driveway to get the paper.

I hate "hunters" like this. I called in one license plate to TIP this year.

At the end of my Dad's 3/4 mile driveway, we saw a real nice 10-point buck on our neighbors land this next weekend. We just sat in our car a stared...and then called our neighbor to say "Hey, there is a buck in your field!" The neighbor was home for lunch...and said "Go get him".

We told him to shoot his own deer or chase it into our woods...and drove away.

We knew the neighbor was being "friendly" like we would be, but really we wouldn't like people shooting on our land unless they were looking for a wounded animal. We did honk to scare him in the woods though, as we know that if someone saw him from the highway, they would blast at him.

I had the same experience this weekend too. Not to mention people hunting or using their ATV's to check traps in land only we had permission to hunt.

I'm selling my Super X2 slug gun (1 year old) and giving up deer hunting in my area.

Hey Dave that is the main reason why I bought land up north. I was the only one to have permission to hunt this land, then every year I would have people wandering around, it just pissed me off.

I wouldnt sell your gun, just hold on to it! You would love the remote upnorth hunting. Not only is there more woods per person, but its a vacation, away from home! Which is the best part.

Well,

the entire weekend was a waste for me. We got 2 deer for 11 guys. The plus to that was, we saw several deer within 50 yards, but I held out on the shots because some of our hunting party was on the other side.

But, aside from the (Contact Us Please) out wandering around, I got home yesterday to find out that my water softener sprung a leak and soaked part of the basement carpet. Walls and carpet will need to be replaced. This is after other unexpected events turned up this summer and depleted the majority of our available funds for our ND pheasant trip over Thanksgiving and X-Mas. I need to cushion that fund because I refuse to give that up this year. I am keeping my T/C G2 Contender .223 for the 'yotes though.

I'm planning on either finding an area closer to the in-laws in the rifle zone (Ottertail County) or go to ND for deer next year.

Sorry to hear of the misfortune, if I was in the market for another gun or if I had the spare funds I would take it off your hands.

Back to the main topic, I was up and about at 5am this morning, I heard 4 shots go off, then a minute later heard another 2 shots. This is from my house, and they werent to far away from me either. I do live on the edge of town but, it was 5 am! confused.gif

this year has been the worst as far as disrespect to other hunters or the laws for that matter.

One of our drives, we had 3 deer get through the standers. There was a truck watching about a half mile away in the "S" curves east of town on County Road 26 and as soon as the deer got over there, 3 gun wielding jackasses hop out and start running down the road after the deer. The problem here is the obvious "you cannot shoot from the roadway" and all of the land around this area is private where they didn't have permission to hunt in the first place.

Another plus was that we now have a flock of 50+ turkeys back in one of our main areas after not seeing one bird last year.

I'm also undecided if Mr. Jones interfered somehow with our hunt. Not while we were hunting, but in the pre-dawn hours. One section of woods we walked that borders his land had an odd smell to it that I have never noticed before and it was gone the following day. Needless to say there were no deer in this woods that usually holds 5+ every time we walk through there.

I hope it wasn't Hilex. I've heard people can sabotage stands quite easily by dumping bleach under them. It's a terrible thing to do.

Meth lab smell?

Not much else is going to stink up the woods and be gone the next day.

I had someone seed out wood edge with mothballs one year. The deer avoided those trails for a few days, but soon started just stepping over them.

Thanks for the replies everyone. It's tough to describe what the smell was like. It wasn't a bleach smell. It was really odd that it was there one day and not the next. Nothing in the weather had changed that would have washed it away. There is a turkey farm about a mile down the road and another farmer was knifing in liquid manure in the area and I could smell it over that. It was poignant (sp), that's for sure.

Oh well. Time to put this weekend behind me and move on. Heading to Battle Lake (your neck of the woods Gissert) to the in-laws for turkey day and then onto ND for some pheasant hunting for the weekend. Looking forward to getting the new pup on her first real hunt.

Hey Mike, glad to see you're still around. Good to see you're still into the hockey. I was planning on getting certified to be a ref, but too many other things got in the way.

P.S. Not sure if you remember who I am, but we were teammates in LS. cool.gif

these truck hunters make me sick, I have in-laws that do it and how is it a sport to see a deer and speed up to it and chase it down just to blast away from the ditch or whatever. I mainly bowhunt for this reason. how is it a sport when people do that if your so hard up for meat go buy a hog.

I was hunting 3A, mid week. I'm in this little patch of woods in the intersection of 3 different farms. The corn is all cut, and the patch of woods is maybe 2 or 3 acres. It's about 4pm, I'm sitting in my blind anticipating the prime hours, and this pickup drives up to the woods. Stops within yards of me. Then proceeds to drive all the way around the patch of woods, and then leaves. My son told me they did it to him 2 years ago, and my friend had it happen to him in the same patch last year. I don't know for sure if they have the necessary handicap to hunt from a vehicle, so perhaps my displeasure is misguided. But it is really frustrating.

I had to laugh, when a buck walked through a half hour later. I passed on it, but I'm sure they wouldn't have. I guess it doesn't necessarily spoil the hunt. But I was sure tempted to give them a piece of my mind.

LEP7MM,

I don't remember anyone who was shooting a 7MM at the time? grin.gif

I need more hints. Shoot me an email malmquist15@hotmail.com, note the 15 in my address. I also have a cabin on the same lake as the one Gissert lives on!

I didn't have the 7mm until I bought a Lone Eagle Pistol 7mm-08 (hence my user name) in my late 20's. I have since sold that with the population growing east of LS.

I usually wore #13 and I think #12 a year or two. If you remember the fights I used to get into with Tom G. blush.gif you might remember me (Dave S.). grin.gif

      Thanks guys for the info. Had a great time with the girls yesterday afternoon. We caught bluegills up to 9", crappies to 11", saw a lot of nice bass, and as we wanted, caught some nice cats. All fish were between 19 and 24", extremely fat fish and lots of fun to catch. The girls were thrilled at the action and all fish were released to be caught another day. Bluegills were not creating beds yet but the crappies were starting to. Thanks again and have a good one!

      With your boat on the trailer,,, with the bow slightly raised (like you're on plane) make sure your motor is as close to 90 degrees to the ground ,,, Most pulling is caused by one side of the prop cutting more water then the other side ,,, Good place to start any way 
    • CJH
      Anybody have any water temps on the Chain?  I'll be up in Alex this weekend to get the boats in and just wondering where its at. Thanks!

      We fished Frazer bay Friday and Saturday afternoon-sundown.  Early evening we did best in 30-35 FOW on lindys and chartruese jigs with chubs.  The last 90 min before dark we had more success at 7-12 FOW.  Nothing big but we caught a lot of 10-14" fish, more than enough to fill a skillet for our group of 5, plus put a few in the freezer.  All around great weekend, look forward to hitting it again this weekend.

      Good to have you back fishandfowl!  Gotta love it when a plan comes together.

      As stated above most likely the Trim tab under the cavitation plate. Might have came loose, or corroded away if it's a sacrificial Zinc type. Agree with Leech, did you make any changes to your boat recently?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has determined that a supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS) is required for the Fargo-Moorhead Diversion Authority’s revised flood risk management project.  The DNR will prepare the SEIS to analyze modifications in the revised project proposal. The DNR invites comments on the scope of the SEIS through June 11. The scope will determine what will be evaluated in the SEIS. Broadly speaking, the SEIS describes the proposed project, identifies environmental impacts and considers mitigation and alternatives that may lessen those impacts. The supplemental review, which is not an entirely new EIS, will focus on those aspects of the revised project that were not evaluated in the original environmental impact statement (EIS). The DNR will conduct the SEIS work concurrently with its review of the Diversion Authority’s permit application for its revised project. The proposed Fargo-Moorhead flood risk management project is a dam and diversion channel system designed to divert flood waters around Fargo, North Dakota; Moorhead, Minnesota; and surrounding metropolitan areas. The DNR denied the Diversion Authority’s previous permit application in October 2016 because it included insufficient mitigation; it did not meet state and local plans, rules and statutes; and there are alternatives that can provide needed protection. Since then, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton created a joint task force to develop engineering options to address concerns about the project’s impacts. The project applicant considered the task force’s work in developing the current project proposal. DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr said substantial changes to the original proposal require additional analysis. He said the DNR’s determination that an SEIS is needed is entirely separate from the agency’s ultimate decision about permitability. The SEIS will help ensure that the potential impacts of the project, as revised, are thoroughly assessed and disclosed, he said. “I want to emphasize that Minnesota continues to support enhanced flood risk management for the developed portion of the Fargo-Moorhead area that can meet Minnesota state standards,” Landwehr said. As required by state law, the DNR will not decide on the permit application until the SEIS is deemed adequate. The SEIS adequacy determination is not a project approval, but is rather a decision about whether the supplemental review was completed properly. The DNR is expected to complete the SEIS and adequacy determination in fall 2018. A permit decision is expected soon thereafter. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is preparing a federal supplemental environmental assessment for the proposed project, which is similar to the state SEIS in scope and purpose. The DNR will accept comments on the scope of the SEIS during a 20-day period beginning May 22 and ending June 11 at 4:30 p.m. A copy of the SEIS is available for public review at: DNR Library, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155. DNR northwest region office, 2220 Bemidji Ave., Bemidji, MN 56601. Minneapolis Central Library, 300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55401, Government Documents, 2nd Floor. Moorhead Public Library, 118 5th St. S, Moorhead, MN 56560. Fergus Falls Public Library, 205 E. Hampden, Fergus Falls, MN 56537. Fargo Public Library Downtown, 102 3rd St. North, Fargo, ND 58102. Written comments on the scope of the SEIS must be received by Monday, June 11 at 4:30 p.m. Comments may be mailed to:  Jill Townley, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, 500 Lafayette Road, Box 25, St. Paul, MN 55155-4025. Comments may be emailed to: environmentalrev.dnr@state.mn.us with “Fargo-Moorhead SEIS” in the subject line. If using the email address, include your name and mailing address so that you can be added to the mailing list. Comments may be faxed to 651-297-1500. The SEIS preparation notice, and additional details about the proposed project and the DNR’s review process are available on the Fargo-Moorhead project page. ###   Frequently Asked Questions What is this project about? The proposed Fargo-Moorhead (FM) flood risk management project is designed to divert flood waters around Fargo, North Dakota; Moorhead, Minnesota and surrounding metropolitan areas. It would control flows through the Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan area by placing high hazard dams on the Red and Wild Rice rivers. The dams, along with two tieback embankments, would then stage water in an upstream staging area. Water would drain from the upstream staging area into a 30-mile diversion channel around the metropolitan area that would outlet north of the metropolitan area. What is the history of the DNR’s involvement with the project? The DNR prepared a state environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Diversion Authority’s proposed project. That EIS process concluded in June 2016 with the DNR’s EIS adequacy determination. On Feb. 18, 2016, prior to completion of state environmental review, the DNR received an application for a Dam Safety and Public Waters Work permit for the FM project, listing the Flood Diversion Board of Authority (the Diversion Authority) as the applicant. Based on the October 2016 Findings of Fact for the Dam Safety and Public Water Work Permit Application, the DNR denied the permit application for the proposed FM project. In early 2017, the Diversion Authority informally coordinated with DNR staff regarding the permit denial by engaging in work sessions aimed at addressing the DNR’s concerns and discussing potential options moving forward. Later in 2017, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton created a joint task force to discuss flood control options and make recommendations. The task force created a technical advisory group that included engineers and staff from the Diversion Authority and the DNR. The technical group presented the task force with engineering options to address concerns about project impacts. What is the revised project design? On March 16, 2018, after considering the recommendations of the task force and technical advisory group, and engaging in additional discussions with the DNR, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and Richland-Wilkin Joint Powers Authority, the Diversion Authority submitted a permit application for a revised FM project, known as “Plan B.” The “Plan B” project changes the alignments of the southern embankment alignment, the eastern tieback and the western tieback. This plan also allows more flows through town. These component changes result in a new inundation and staging area, and also result in modifications to, and elimination of, some project structures, such as the Comstock ring levee. Plan B also results in reduced impacts to Minnesota acres, cemeteries and organic farms. What will happen next? The DNR has determined that these project design changes are “substantial and may affect the potential significant adverse environmental effects of the project” and has ordered preparation of a supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS). The SEIS is designed to evaluate the potential impacts of the proposed project that were not assessed in the original EIS. During the SEIS process, the DNR will also be reviewing the Diversion Authority’s Plan B permit application. However, the DNR cannot make any decision on the application until the SEIS process is complete. The DNR currently anticipates completing the SEIS in October 2018, and making its permit decision shortly thereafter. Additional information about the SEIS and permit application are available on the Fargo-Moorhead project page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      We did well Thursday, Friday and Saturday out front of Pine just out of the gap in 19ft. Got on the lake just fine Saturday....was actually better than the previous two days as far as rough water is concerned I thought.

      I saw the guy who bought our cabin, Ryan Aker, came in 4th. A couple of 7lb fish and i thought i saw a team with a 10lb fish also. Shhhhhh, the shallow is a secret. We fish quite often in 5' or less, Often watching the guides out on the sandy flats from a far
