In Hunters memory may more parents take the time to be with your kids now! You will have all the time in the world when they are grown up for yourselves.

Just right, saddie.

Sandmannd I agree with you.

I have to keep my thoughts to myself since they are not warranted in time of tragedy.

I send prayers to the family... They buried a son who was way to young to lose his life.

I had stated that I felt some anger towards the Dad for not following some basic safety. That being said, I feel much more sadness for him for loosing his child in this tragedy. It should have been provented, but it wasn't and that is the deffenition of "Accident".

I really feel for the father. What a hard and terrible way to learn a lesson.

He was hunting illegally (no license and tresspassing) and I assume did not care whether he shot a tom or a hen...and shot at a noise (movement) in the grass. All "right" and "safe" things went out the window.

Terrible way to learn your lesson....

You have to feel pretty badly for the fella but like you said a tough lesson. That funeral has to be a painful place to be for all. I also feel badly for the hunters our here like myself and most all of my hunting friends that put much effort into teaching our kids the right and legal way of doing things so that things like this do not happen and we can continue to have this "priviledge" rather than having it taken away from us with headlines like the one we had last weekend. We have to stick up for ourselves and educate others about how this "hunter/shooter" really hurts our passion and it isn't right to let that headline reflect on the vast majority of us doing it right. It could help bring an end or hardship to hunting. Good hunting out there and continued safety and enjoyment and one more time I do feel badly for the family and friends that will have to live with this forever in their minds.

I agree with Hammer Handle, this is terrible that a 8 year old had to die. HOWEVER, this does not EXCUSE the dad for making the bad choices that he did. This tragedy could and should have never happened.

So many here are glossy over the fact that this never ever would have happened if the father had been SURE that his target was not only a turkey, but a turkey with a visable beard.

Yes, the father will have to live with his actions for the rest of this life. HE WAS responsible for his son death.

None of us have all the facts. Let's be sure none of us is hurtful in our posts here.

It's a tragic situation and I expect no members will make this tougher on the family than what they already have to deal with.

Please be sure to be compassionate in this thread.

I cringe at the thought of what they are going through and will always have to go through. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of them.

This incident is a bad, bad situation, no matter who is at fault. This only reinforces the need to be safe and teach younger ones the reasons to be safe.

Hunter who killed son had beer, pot in his system

Belle Plaine father shot and killed son with alcohol and marijuana in his system.

By CHAO XIONG, Star Tribune

Last update: May 5, 2008 - 4:08 PM

The Belle Plaine man who fatally shot his 8-year-old son in the chest last month while turkey hunting had alcohol and marijuana in his system at the time, according to a felony second-degree manslaughter charge filed today.

Anthony Klaseus, 39, is also charged with felony reckless discharge of a firearm and two misdemeanor charges, trespassing and hunting turkeys without a license, according to Sibley County court documents.

According to the charges:

Klaseus told authorities that he told his son, Hunter, to stay put as he circled a field to approach turkeys about 5 p.m. April 19 in a field east of Crahan Lane near County Road 6 in Sibley County.

"Then I heard something snap or break near me, and a large figure rose up," he told authorities. "I thought it was a turkey, and I shot and it went down. I thought I shot the turkey. Then my son jumped back up screaming and then fell back down."

Klaseus and paramedics performed CPR on Hunter, but he died at the scene.

Klaseus blew a breath test at the scene that registered a blood-alcohol concentration of .06 percent, the charges said. A urine test later showed that he also had marijuana in his system, although the exact concentration won't be known for a few weeks.

At the scene, authorities found two 12-packs of beer, three six-packs of beer, an empty 24-pack of beer and a marijuana pipe in Klaseus' truck, the charges show. The packs of beer contained empty and full cans.

Wow, that is an insane turn. I had posted earlier that I got more angry with the Dad as I read how reckless he was out hunting. This explains a lot. Put the drugs asside, do you think it's wise to drink and hunt with your son, let alone anytime? Come on folks, there's a time and place to do it. Can't people enjoy the outdoors with out alchohol and/or drugs? I had my days of drinking, now I drink maybe a couple of times a year. I do it in my back yard while having a bbq and if someone had one too many, they stay the night period.

This is a sad tragedy and I feel horrible for everyone, even the Dad. Couldn't imagine the horror he has to live with. But, reading the story, I hope he get procecuted and put a way. There is no excuse for what he did.

When this came out it was tragic. Now it is just sad.

Sometimes all traditions are not worth passing on.

Feel bad for the kid, and his mom.

Not so much for dad.

There are so many things that ran through my head when I read this story. But, I will use my better judgement and not post them on here. It's bad enough that the father was drinking, but then you add drugs into the mix?? Very, very disheartening...

I feel horrible for the family and their loss of an innocent boy. My prayers go out to the family...

Poor Kid!! I was feeling the same emotions as you guys originally. Then this info comes out about the father, so disheartining. His BAC wasn't that high at the time they tested him but who knows what it was before or during the incident, but you add some weed on top of drinking..... Just blows my mind. I don't like to cast stones but man... could go on with my disgust but whatever. The child should have never been in that situation.

      Any new reports of ice conditions around Mankato?
    • Borch
      Just remember that ice with current has 1/2 the strength as ice without current.  So in the example you gave you were actually sitting on 1 1/2" of what regular ice will hold. 
    • Bucketcastle
      @Rick, good point, I haven't done much backwater fishing.  I have found myself on 3" with a solid current under the ice and ice cracking under my bucket while I sat on it.  I literally crawled away to thicker ice.  I'm not putting myself in that scenario ever again.
    • LakeofthewoodsMN
      On the south end...  Ice fishing has begun!  Many resorts have fish houses out with others watching ice conditions in the area they fish for the right time.  Below zero temps this week will help.  Some ice roads are open to ATV and snowmobile traffic.  Check with your resort / outfitter prior to coming up.  Fishing has started out excellent as expected.  Most finding walleyes and saugers in 21 - 26 feet of water.  A shallow bite happening in 18-20' morning / evening.  The norm of jigging one line and dead sticking the other line working well.  Good numbers of fish being caught with some trophies mixed in as well as pout, perch, tullibees, sturgeon and an occasional pike.  Very little snow on the ice.   On the Rainy River...   Most of the river is frozen over with a few random spots still showing open water.  There is no traffic on the river at this time while ice is forming.  Extra caution is always needed with current and this year the current is stronger than most years.   Up at the NW Angle...  Some resorts have a few fish houses out and initial fishing reports for walleyes are excellent.  Some areas still need time with high current this year.  Forecast is favorable with sub zero temps this week.  The majority of ice traffic is snowmobiles thus far.  It's a must to stick to resort marked trails or know the area you are traveling.

      Also, on the topic of zebra muscles, scientifically it may show how they are terrible for a lakes ecosystem and whatnot, but you look at mille lacs for example, which is about infested as it gets with zebra muscles, yet it's currently a world class walleye, muskie, and smallmouth fishery. Now obviously you dont want to spread zebra muscles, they are invasive and its heavily illegal,  it just seems that their impact is overstated.
    • Chill62
      The trip is a fun time and we have been blessed with warm favorable conditions the last two years I've helped set it up.  Just hope it keeps up that way because every trip prior it was -20 or worse temps.     Thanks!  We've put a lot of work into it so far.  It isn't new but its new to us and that is the only way we could get what we wanted with the features we wanted.  Having a heated cab is amazing when going across the ice we actually had to take our jackets off prior to traveling across the ice.  I we made the rack for the back for hauling gear and giving us a little more space (PVC).  Ice fishing is our favorite season and when we figured we spent last year from weekend before Thanksgiving to April 22nd area on the ice every weekend its an investment that we will use.  We also plow out 5-7 driveways at the lake for neighbors so it helps cut down on the amount of time I am spending plowing when I have a 72" blade instead of a 60" 4 wheeler blade and not enough power to push big piles.  
    • bowhuntingboy1
      I can see all arguments and their points. I just logically think that everyone in america should have to follow the same laws regardless of race or culture or history 200 years ago. Maybe statistically this may be wrong somehow, but oh well, you're all entitled your opinion. 
    • Sculpin
      Could be worse guys, way worse.  You could have a deeper fishery, and have to account for "hooking mortality"  Such as it is at Mille Lacs.  I think everyone needs to understand that the old days are gone, and liberal limits, as we all once knew them, are rapidly becoming obsolete. LOTWS just went from 8 to 6 fish, and I would not be at all surprised to see it go to 5, or less, its just a matter of time. Everyone chatters about catch and release fishing, and the DNR would tell you that the majority of surveyed anglers, particularly at Mille Lacs are good with the concept. I don't necessarily agree with their methodology, but it is what it is.  Drive less, stop at Mille Lacs, and get your one fish, (maybe). It'll never be more than a two fish lake again, because the Bands will never, ever, compromise on their end of the harvest, nor on the co-management of the lake,  at the end of the day, they have no reason to. Red lake is the same. I think they may finally have it right, impact of zebra mussels notwithstanding. Time will tell. Get used to it, if you live long enough, like Kelly, you'll see worse. 
    • CJH
      I grew up in Winona (didn't ice fish back then) but the Mississippi River  is NOT to be messed with - it will always win.  Fantastic fishing, but definitely take baby steps in getting to know it.      Might be a good idea to Post in the SE MN section and see if somebody would let you tag along.
    • Random dude
      I meant to say the tribal waters are the factory that keeps the popluation going,  we would fish out every lake we have control of if they let us.  Thank the Band and DNR for setting up a safe harvest limit and rules for everyone to follow that is building this great fishery back
