Warning, bar bet question ahead?

Recommended Posts

Nowhere in the regulations does it prohibit taking geese by hand. There is a list of prohibited methods but I don't assume the list is all inclusive but if taken literally it seems it would be legal to ring the neck of a goose chasing you if you had the the liscence, hip, stamps and the season was open. Now the only regulation hanging you up would be city ordances prohibitiing dischange of firearm-or do some outlaw hunting in their language or possible harassement laws?

If it is legal to possess a dead goose in town would it not be legal to have one the moment it was dead?

Who has the full story? Hans

I want to make it clear that I am not promoting it, but there are a couple of honkers that have it coming.

Great question Hans...I've always wondered about that myself and I believe you would be completely legal...until some wacko saw you ringing neck and started sounding the trumpets. If it was a true PETA or HSUS crusader they would try their best to get you for animal cruelty...the cops would probably show up as would the liberal media. You'd probably make the evening news. Anyone with a brain knows that what you are doing is not cruel and the judge (if it got that far) would probably toss the case.

The only thing that could get you would be a city ordinance--if there isn't one against what you are doing I'd say you would be legal. But that isn't to say you wouldn't be giving hunters some bad PR in the process.

By the end of the goose season I have more geese than I want to deal with so personally I'd never have the urge to ring any necks in the city park...although those bands can be pretty tempting at times!

Just my $.02

I'm not one to make bar bets as ageneral rule, it's usually the booze talking. I have my 20 year sober date next wednesday. The argument was wether or not it was possible and how best to do it. The sober one in the bunch(me) thought it best to check if it were legal first. Hans

ps I've never been tempeted by a band, but had one bite my youngest leaving him crying and with a blood blister. The goose also blocked the only path back to the car. I also like to go primitive when hunting as a way to get back to nature. A little mano a mano with a goose would be pretty primitive.

I have thought about a golf club being legal while I was on the course. I think you would be okay legally - and if the animal bit your child, you have every right to protect family or yourself.

That guy bite the head off a pet duck in the St. Paul Ramada or something. It's the hotel that hosts Wooley's restaurant. That was property of the hotel and in the presence of many people. I've been in there before, they have a bunch of mallards and mandarin wood ducks. Not exactly apples to apples.

If you don't want to strangle the geese, I've been told that if you give them the jet puff style marshmallows they won't be able to swallow them and they choke and die. I don'e see anything wrong with that, provided you are have the liscense and it's in season.

I think this would be considered baiting.

Also, if you are going to hypothetically be killing geese at a city park you would probably need to make sure there are not people feeding them there.

Instead of taking the law into your own hands, why not call the warden/wildlife officer, and make them do the dirty work. I'm sure your not the only one that has had a child bitten or been bitten. (by a goose that is!)

lol. Couldn't stop laughing after I read this line. Then I read the next line and nearly hit the floor!!!:

"I believe that would be considered baiting"

You guys are too much! Not sure if it was intended to be funny but I had a good laugh anyway. We should start an FMer's comedy act!

It is funny but i've actually seen it done one time, on pvt land, but i never thought about the baiting law, definatley worth a call to the DNR to find out for sure.

If choking geese at the city park becomes legal, then I am going to have a lanyard that glimmers like a jewlery store. Because I will be the first to pick out the banded ones!

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.
