Pins and Cans

With the split season on Pintails and Canvasback I was just wondering how many people actually got a shot at some Pintails? It has been years since I have shot either one. But I did get a canvasback in Carver County about 4-5 years ago.

I hunt the Itasca County area and we saw alot of pins last year. Just about every time out during the pin season, we would have one if not 2 in our 2 person bag limit. We saw some awesome fully colored pin drakes after the pin season closed....dang it! This year we haven't seen nearly as many pins, maybe more water for them to hide in? We haven't done any bigwater hunting, but are rigged up for it this year. My buddy and I are both hoping for a big bull can for the wall. Is that too much to ask? grin.gif

This is acctually the first year I have seen pins around here let alone getting some. My hunting partner and I have got 4 so far this year. I've never shot a pin, I can only remember seeing a couple in the last umpteen years around here before it. Was kind of a nice bonus.

We see and shoot lots of pins every year in NW MN. The population is pretty good up there. You most certainly have to be able to ID birds! Good luck!

F.Y.I. Just so nobody messes up.

The daily bag limit is six ducks, and may not include more than four mallards (only two of which may be females), three scaup, two wood ducks, two redheads, and one black duck. The daily limit will also include one pintail and one canvasback during the 30-day open seasons for those species. One pintail per day may be taken from Saturday, Sept. 25 through Sunday, Oct. 24. One canvasback per day may be taken from Saturday, Oct. 9 through Sunday, Nov. 7. Possession limits are twice the daily bag limits.

Paceman shot a pintail hen up near DL when I was huting with him a couple of weeks ago. I've shot several in ND other years, haven't gone for a few now.

I have only seen a very limited number of pins in my day. 2 years ago we were hunting this area around central mn when a few pins were using a large pond. Managed to get myself one. Since then I have yet to see one. Still searching the skys for that first canvasback.

We normally see quite a few pintails out in ND over the season, but they aren't easy to come by... I've only shot one in MN... The drakes sure are nice looking birds..

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
