2nd Annual FM Pheasant Hunt


spinach

Recommended Posts

As you requested. We have decided to have a 2nd Annual FM Pheasant Hunt.

The date will be on October 2nd (Saturday) From 9:00 am until ????

Location: Glendorado Hunting Preserve in Princeton Mn.

Costs will be $12 per pheasant.

This invitation is open to all FM'ers and their guests.

We would like to invite around 25 to 30 hunters. Last fall we had a very good turnout with around 30 hunters showing up, so I am expecting to see most of the same people joining us. Please sign up soon to reserve a spot.

We will be able to secure the entire preserve to ourselves if we can make the 80-100 bird minimum. This would require a 3 bird per hunter minimum.

We will assign 5 to 6 groups of hunters and start the hunt at 9:00 am. Lunch will be served at noon along with time to socialize and relax. The afternoon hunt will start around 2:00 pm.

I will bring a gas grill, burgers, brats, chips etc... Their will be a small lunch fee to reimburse my costs. (approximately $5.00)

Please supply your own beverages. pop, beer, water etc...

We will also require a prepayment from each hunter for a minimum of 50% of your total birds ordered. Please send prepayment no later than 9-01-04 to Pat Turnquist 2753 Bexley dr. Woodbury Mn. 55125. The funds collected will be sent directly to the owner of the preserve. This is to assure that those of us who show up are not responsible for any no shows. (last hunt 30 hunters only 1 no show)

Please reply with number of hunters, dogs and type of dogs and number of birds requested so we can assign groups of pointers and flushers.

1 article of blaze orange above the waist is required and don't forget to bring plenty of water for the dogs. I hope to see you all in October.

Spinach - Add me, Luke, Buddy and five birds to your list.

I had a phone conversation with Rick last night at 7:30 pm while he was on his cell phone standing in the Lower Kinnininiinikinnick fishing for trout. He did not mention anything about higher bird prices so I'm assuming the $12 per bird cost is still good.

He said we could schedule earlier but that late September presents better conditions. He said there will be a lot of tall grass in the fields this year and conditions will be tough early on. The more groups that walk through in late August and early September will make it easier to find birds. He did say the corn will probably not be out by then but the back half of the farm was planted in beans and they will be all but gone.

I'm looking forward to the reunion!

Wild Willie, Your not getting off that easy, it will take the both of us to answer questions and make this hunt just as sucessful as the last one. wink.gif

Everyone else: Please direct any questions to myself or Wild Willie.

REMINDER TO SELF: DO NOT DRIVE DOWN THE FARM ROAD AFTER HEAVY RAINFALL!!!! I'm sure a few of us will never forget that day we had 2 trucks stuck in the mud up to the bottom of the doors.....only 1 made it thru without getting stuck and I forget who it was wink.gifwink.gifwink.gif

Spinach - Okay, I didn't think it would be as easy as just showing up. You know I'm more than happy to pitch-in and get this thing rolling. We learned a few valuable lessons from the first outing that will help make the 2nd event even more of a success.

I'm thinking we should make contact with your embroidery friend and get some hats made for the event. We could get a per hat cost estimate and guys could place orders and add that amount to their deposit.

I also thought I could donate some sample ice rod carrying case products as prizes for the top group in each dog type category for the highest success rate for both morning and afternoon sessions.

Anyone else who attended the last event have any suggestions?

Spinach, Sept.25th may end up being the waterfowl opener here and in the Dakota's.

If they decide on that date I may have to back out as we are going to hunt the Dakota's this year.

I hope it is a week later so I can go on the hunt, and will be able to hunt later into the fall for them ducks.

Just thought I would let you know about the duck opener as it may effect how many people can show up.

Put me and guest down for lunch as well.

Thanks, Benny

Benny, Good point. We could push it off to the following weekend October 2nd. Lets hear some thoughts on this from everyone.

What date would work better? 9-25-04 or 10-02-04 ?

Sounds super fun! I would like to attend with Jake(GSP) but once the hunt season opens we will be chasing grouse, ducks or pheasants by then. Why not make this thing in early september before the season starts, so as not to conflict with hunts? Also I imagaine us hunter will be excited and chomping on the bit before the seasons open to get us and our dogs a little practice.

Spinach,if you have to plan it before the middle of August try to see if the second weekend in October would work.
Or as some one else said earlier in September.

Until the flyway council meets we won't know which weekend duck opener will be held on.
I bet they go for the last weekend in September though.

It seems we have a roadblock in our plans concerning the date of the hunt. I'm sure whatever date we go with will abviously not work for everyone, so lets all post a date ranging from the 2nd week in September to the first week in Oct.

Please select a date that will work for you.
We will make a decision by August 1st and post it here.

1. Saturday September 11th
2. Saturday September 18th
3. Saturday September 25th
4. Saturday October 2nd

I forsee a conflict of some type for all of these dates, early september is warm for the dogs and the hunters, Opening bow hunting, waterfowl opener etc... but we will just pick the date that works best for the majority.

Let the voting begin.

Don't really care...but I believe later would be easier on hunters and dogs due to warm weather and vegitation over growth. However...the cold beverages will go down easier earlier in the season as we hack our way through the tall grass and underbrush. We could just simply strap 8 foot whips with color coded locator flags onto the backs of our dogs so we can find them a little easier. Just kidding guys...any date you choose will be just fine for me and Buddy! I will probably have him out several times before then anyway for conditioning and to pick-up where we left off last season!

I also like Oct 2nd because of the possible cooler weather.

Lets hear from the rest of you all......

Mayfly and Bdr, me and Wild Willie will probably start heading up there around Sept 1st to get the dogs back in shape. I'm sure both of you know where to get my cell phone # give me a call soon. Both you guys are welcome to join us.

It looks like Oct. 2nd is the day. I will change the 1st post to this date.

Mistermom, bdr, mayfly, and anyone else give me a call towards the end of August so we can start getting the dogs back in shape up at the farm. 651-775-7670 (Pat)

I will call Rick and make sure our group gets booked for October 2nd. I will let him know we are planning on having enough hunters to secure the farm for the day. We can always scale back to only half the farm if we fall short of our 20 hunter /100 bird goal. I'm sure he will be flexible as long as we call and confirm the final hunter/bird count three to four weeks before the scheduled event.

As of today I am almost 100% sure that opener of duck season will be the 25th.
So I see no problem with being able to make it on the 2nd of October.

I just got the pup back yesterday from Elk River Kennels, she is still dropping the birds before she gets to me though.

The trainer said it will take lots of repatiotion and a season of hunting to get her to realize it is fun not a chore.
She has an exelent nose for birds so she should do fine in flushing them up.

Can't wait to see her work those birds, and to see her with her first true downed duck retrive in the wild.

I will be there for sure.

Was up at the farm this weekend with Spinach just to take a look around. Wow...the under growth is really thick. The L-field was walkable and okay for training. But every where else is extremely overgrown. Rick has the FM group booked for Oct 2nd. Everything is good to go...all we need is for more folks to sign-up. Last I checked we were at 12 hunters/41 birds. Our goal is 20 hunters/100 birds. I'm confident we will reach our goal.

      Fished solo Sunday and Monday afternoon.  Began by targeting smallies, but couldn’t buy a fish which was odd because the conditions were juicy - calm, cool, cloudy, drizzly.   Frustrating to say the least!    Figured if I was gonna get skunked, then it might as well be swinging for the fence.  Switched to Muskies at 7:30 and got lucky as heck, putting three in the boat over the next two hours, including a porker 48”er.  Felt very content the rest of the evening.    Got back out on the water Monday afternoon under post-frontal high skies and was fortunate to trick this lonely blonde an hour into the day.  Missed another a short time later and had some follows before pulling the plug to head home.  Didn’t want to leave that’s for sure!  All East end fish caught casting btw and all released unharmed.   Water temp was 71.

      I recently found an interesting thomas king essay topic on this site. God, I'm so glad that now I shouldn't waste time surfing the web. By the way, the rest of the topics from the list were also very interesting.
    • MasonDavis1
      The main keywords of this essay “can virtue be taught essay”. Plato presents Socrates’ views on the question of virtue and knowledge. It can be taught in many dialogues, including Meno. Socrates offers many arguments regarding virtue in this dialogue. These arguments cover how virtue is defined, and whether people can attain it. He discusses how virtue can be achieved, including whether one is born virtuous and whether it can be taught. This essay will address the question of whether virtue is possible to teach. Plato answered that virtue can't be taught. This essay will argue that Plato could have asked the questions differently and given him a different response. Particularly, I argue that Plato could have asked whether virtue can be learned rather than asking whether virtue is taught.   Meno asks Socrates whether virtue is possible to teach. The argument is then shifted to another question: what is knowledge? Meno then proposed an interesting paradox. One cannot find anything new. Either one already knows the answer, in which case it is unnecessary to search for it, or one doesn't know it and can't recognize it once it is found (Plato 1997: 80d-e. To put it another way, if one doesn't know what virtue (arete) is, he cannot search for it. Because he will not be able to recognize it when he finds it. Socrates proposes a solution to this problem, which is based upon the Pythagorean view on the immortal soul. The idea that the soul can reincarnate and be destroyed after death of the body is an example of this. It is clear that one cannot acquire new knowledge, but it is also obvious that we are constantly learning new things. Therefore, learning must be a matter recollection of past lives experiences and knowledge. Also, remembering is more important than teaching.   He demonstrated the Meno with a young boy from slavery who didn't seem to have any geometry knowledge. He was able to prove that the boy knew certain mathematical theorems by asking him questions.   Meno again asks his original question. He wants to know if virtue can be taught or if one is born with virtue. Socrates agrees to continue, but says they need to find common ground because neither one of them can define virtue at this moment. Meno agrees that virtue cannot be taught if it is not knowledge. If it is knowledge, it can be taught. Meno points out that it is only possible to teach something if you know what it is. It is unlikely that someone who doesn't know how to drive a car can teach another. Meno and Socrates agree that no one knows what "virtue" means and can therefore not be taught.   Socrates claims that virtue can be taught if we are able to learn from those who teach it (Plato 1997: 96c). Socrates asserts that there are teachers who can teach horsemanship, medicine, and other skills. These teachers are recognized by everyone as legitimate, but people disagree on whether they actually teach virtue. Thucydides was the father of two sons. Neither of them were considered to be virtuous. It is claimed that Thucydides taught his children many disciplines. However, it seems that he couldn't find a teacher who could teach virtue, even though he had teachers for other areas of life that he valued. Even though he was virtuous, he could not even teach it. Virtue is not a form knowledge. To make something knowledge, one must be able teach it to others. Socrates concluded that virtue cannot and should not be taught, and that there are no methods or means by which one can acquire virtue. Refer to: Virtue is simply "shown that it will come to us whenever it comes" (reference).   Plato might have received a different answer if he had asked the questions differently, according to my opinion. Plato could have asked whether virtue could learn, rather than asking whether virtue can ever be taught. To put it another way, asking if one can be taught something implies that the relationship between a student or teacher is involved. However, asking if something can be learnt means that the student (or someone with similar life experiences) is asking if a teacher has taught you geometry. To ask whether I learned geometry, it is to simply ask whether it was taught to me by a teacher or if I learned it myself from a book or some other source.   There are many ways to learn. To learn something one doesn't need a teacher. Learning can be done by studying virtue-filled people, even though they may not know it. A man might be learning virtue and his "teachers" could be virtuous even though they may not be living. Experience is another form of learning. Experience can be a great way to learn virtue. This would mean that the "teacher" is a combination of life experiences and reflective nature. Another form of learning exists. Even if he can't explain how he learned it or what he knows, a man can still learn. After someone has experienced a certain problem in their life, he may be able to detect that his relative is also experiencing the same issue. He can recognize it but cannot explain how. Another example is the musician or painter who has learned their craft and can perform well but cannot explain what it was.   The question of whether virtue can or cannot be taught is therefore a different and more narrow one than the question of whether virtue can actually be learned. Plato was right when he said that virtue can't be taught. It is likely that many people know of or have heard of people who can recite the "rules of virtue" but cannot put them into practice. This is a clear indication that virtue cannot be taught. As I mentioned, being virtuous is similar to being able to play a musical instrument, which is instinctual. It could be argued, for instance, that the ability to recognize when to help a friend, or when to give it to him, is something we instinctually know.   This means that, although virtue cannot be taught, it is possible to learn virtue. Plato suggested that virtue is inherent. This is true to a certain extent. Some people have an extraordinary capacity for virtues such as compassion, empathy, and the like. Since they were born. Others, however, seem to have a lack of moral consciousness. This seems to be a problem because virtue cannot exist without it. This does not mean that virtue cannot be learned, but that the foundation is inborn.   The same way we understand that it is possible to preach virtue but not practice it, so too can the reverse. People can improve their understanding of virtue and may find that they are more virtuous through reflective practice. As they get older, their perceptions of what it means to act in a virtuous manner change. Plato might have received a more positive answer if he had asked different questions (e.g., if he had asked if virtue could be learned instead of if virtue could be taught).

      Red, the moose was near birch island. As far as the lead bite goes....I had heard it was lights out a week ago. No doubt from what I've seen that before 9am you can get into a good bite. For me it's been poor after that. I'd be real curious if others are finding that as well. I have tried deeper areas as well and they weren't good after 9am for me either.

      That is great to see! Between Birch Point or Birch Island and Pine? Great to see wherever! Last one I saw was in Quetico umpteen years ago.   I’ve been wondering about lead core. I’m starting to find fish with lindy rigs (although I’ve started to use tungsten worm sinkers) or spinners with crawlers in 18-20’ near steep rocky shore.    Your wildlife shot reminded me of one I took about a month ago along 77. Thought I’d share it. not as cool as a moose, though!
