OutdoorMN News - New paintings chosen for pheasant and turkey stamps

Recommended Posts

Rick

Mark Kness of Freeborn won the Minnesota Pheasant Habitat Stamp contest and Stephen Hamrick of Lakeville won the Turkey Habitat Stamp contest. Both of the annual contests took place Sept. 19 and are sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

2020 Pheasant Stamp Competition.  First Place:  Mark Kness

This was the first time Mark Kness has won the pheasant stamp contest. His painting, selected by judges from among 11 submissions, will be featured on the 2020 pheasant habitat stamp. Other finalists were Mark Thone of Shakopee in second place, Stephen Hamrick of Lakeville in third place and Nicholas Markell of Stillwater in fourth place.

In the turkey stamp contest, Hamrick’s painting was selected by judges from among nine submissions, and will be featured on the 2021 turkey habitat stamp. Other finalists were Micah Hanson of St. Charles in second place and Mark Kness in third place.

2021 Turkey Stamp Competition.  First Place:  Stephen Hamrick

The pheasant stamp validation for hunting is $7.50 and is required for pheasant hunters ages 18 to 64. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the validation as well as the pictorial stamp in the mail. It also is sold as a collectible. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to pheasant habitat management and protection.

The 1996 Minnesota Legislature authorized the turkey stamp at the request of turkey hunters. The DNR uses stamp revenue for wild turkey management and research, and incorporates the cost of a turkey stamp into the price of the hunting license – no additional purchase is required.

A pictorial turkey stamp costs 75 cents and can be purchased with or without a turkey hunting license.

More stamp contest information is available at mndnr.gov/stamps.

      Does scented make a difference? How about some different ones for walleyes?

      @popriveter  Thanks man,  Glad I could get you pumped for the season. It was exciting to get out that early this year. Really sucks this warm weather came in and going set us back though. We were on track for a really nice ice season too. I was out in the Metro on 4-5" for few days last week before it got warm. Ice is still there just looks nasty now. Really bummed. You may have to drive north for some decent ice. Either way fingers crossed for cold snap soon. Be safe and goodluck this season!

      @Bucketcastle lol...Thanks Man. There was a lot of ice checking before this video was made too. Pretty much 4-5" everywhere I drilled.

      Some plastics will last thru many crappies. Some maybe one. 😁 Slug bugs. Mayflies. Wishbones. Wedgees

      Please show some pics of good crappie plastics. Good thing is one scoop of minnows will stay alive forever in the winter.

      Yep. Leave the bait home and jiggle jiggle jiggle. 🐟🐟🐟

      Looks to be super unpredictable still, I heard a few brave souls walking out of Warrod but Arnesens just posted online that they had ice but now gone with the wind. I would imagine it's a few weeks out as it's a huge body of water

      Anyone out ice fishing the bays?

      I built confidence in plastics by going without bait. Amazing what you learn to do when plastics and artificials are your only options.
