So who is going to go and chase the clown birds around this weekend? I will be heading to Blooming Prarie, we have just about the whole county to hunt since the two guys that I am going with grew up there. They have been seeing lots and lots of birds around. I just talked to the guy today and he said that 50% of the corn is down, with acre after acre coming down by the minute!!! It looks like we are going to have some great weather. Hopefully the birds will be flying and so will the lead!! Good luck everyone, be safe shoot straight and ask permission.

I will be out with my Dad and my 12 year old boy. Its hard to beat that,birds will be a bonus.I secured some private land near the cities that weve been seen lot of birds around for years but couldn't locate owner,now we don't have to listen to them we can actually go after them.

I'm pretty excited for the opener. I always fill out. My dad farms our family's 1200-acre farm and I have hunted there ever since I could carry a shotgun. This year is going to be something pretty special. Another mild winter combined with the unusually dry summer should factor into the best pheasant population in two decades. I went home to bowfish last weekend and saw quite a few birds roaming about. AND the crop harvest coincides with the opener in probably the most optimum timing we could hope for. This Saturday about 50% of the corn will be combined and the remaining should provide easily walkable cover. I've filled out on the opener for the last ten years or so but all said, there's going to be more consistent, predictable action than ever before! Have a safe weekend and best of luck to all. I'd like to hear how the opener goes this year...I'm thinking it's going to be phenomenal.

I'm so excited to do some serious wingshooting this weekend. My family's farm is tended by my Pops and features some excellent pheasant cover. He usually leaves some corn rows near his wetlands and that really stimulates activity. I've been shooting pheasants on our famr ever since I could carry a gun and this year promises to be something special. The mild winter combined with the dry spring should make for thick pheasant populations. I'm talking about the best year in about two decades for bird hunting. I went home last weekend for some bowfishing and saw an extraordinary amount of birds. This year's corn harvest is nearing 50% completion which is pretty optimum for hunting cover that will be thinning out as the weekend continues. Best of luck to everyone going wingshooting this weekend and have a safe opener! Post your results, I'm interested to find out how this year bodes.

I'm heading to Alexandria area for the what will hopefully be my first ringkneck ever. I just started chasing them last year and love it, even though I haven't had the opportunity to shoot at anything yet. This year will be different I can feal it!

Yeah baby!!! I'm goin'! I pheasant hunt as much as I can without being threatened with a divorce from the missus. Setterguy, I used to hunt around Blooming Prairie as well. My wife is from there so we had a few contacts but nothing really good to hunt. We usually scrathed a few down and always had a good time down there. Now I hunt around where I grew up. Should be fun but hopefully not too crowded. Good luck too all. Shoot straight and be safe.

It is going to hurt bad to sit this one out. The hound is pretty sick and I have an appt at the U Friday for him. I just cant see getting out there without him. I live in southren MN near Iowa and there are plenty of birds. I will be on Millac for the full moon bite. Hopefully get good news at the vet tomorrow and salvage the later part of the season. Good luck to everyone and save a few for me later in the year when the hound heals up

      Several months ago, it was challenging for me to find at least 6 hours to sleep. Students most probably know that feeling: professors just don’t care. But after I found Proessays, things changed. I can entrust completing papers to them and have my life back. At last!

      In a guide to writing sociology papers, the Sociology Writing Group identifies four types of papers that are based on data sources as the most common writing assignments given to undergraduate sociology majors: (1) The textual analysis paper in which the student has to analyze a text like an essay or book. The text provides the data, and the student is not asked to interpret the text. (2) The ethnographic field research paper in which data are generated by observing and interacting with people in their social environment. (3) The quantitative research paper in which data are collected using specific methods of data analysis and collection in order to answer a sociological question. (4) The general research paper in which data are collected through library research to refine a question and gather information to support the paper's thesis.

      Who are these leech and kettle guys going back and forth??? 😉
    • leech~~
      Well just for the Halibut, you could try salmon or Cod! 😆
    • Kettle
      I've heard it you nail them to a board, smoke them, throw away the fish then eat the board they can be good?

      Alaska lacks the population of walleye that I need to survive

    • leech~~
      What's wrong with drift fishing if you have some wind? I do it all the time with good results. 👍

      In my opinion not one that big. Smaller ones if done right are good. But I've had 1 to many bad ones too ever get near a smoked carp again

      I was out alone on Big Sauk Lake on Thursday morning. I brought some leeches and nightcrawlers in search of walleye. I was marking a lot of fish in the 20' - 25' depth range. Some decent sized arches suspended about 10' - 15' down, which I suspected were likely northern pike, and some nice arches near the bottom, which I hoped were walleye. I couldn't seem to connect with any of them and for a while I decided to try shallower to see if there was anything more willing to take.    I moved into about 15' depth and found perch. I could tell they were perch by the way they were nibbling off my bait. At one point they ate everything off my jig up to the hook and l was left with what was on my hook. So, I dropped that over the side and decided to to just let it sit on the bottom to see what happens.   I made myself comfortable and laid my rod across my lap with my hands crossed over it. Yup, I dozed off and in a short time I was awakened when my fishing rod was almost pulled out of my hands! I grabbed my fishing rod and began to fight the fight of a lifetime with a fish! Now, I've caught a few 36" - 40" northern pike and some 25" - 31" walleye and a few 22" - 23" smallmouth on my walleye rigs but never had I experienced a battle like that. I was getting concerned that I would run out of line on my reel a couple times. With my 6# test line it took me about 10 minutes to tire the fish out enough to get it into my landing net. It turned out to be a common carp but what a fun fish to catch! I've never caught one of these before. Lifting it up I estimated it was somewhere between 12 and 15 lbs. I didn't find any regulations about destroying them and learned they are not invasive so I released it.    Are they good smoked?
