It also depends on whether you signed up through a chapter or with the corporate office. Through a chapter takes an additional step and could take longer. Also, this time of year is pretty busy for them (state conventions and Pheasant Fest). Have patience, it is a great organization and the more you get involved the more you will get out of it.

I signed up when the gift card offer came out and got my membership card/decal stuff late last week, the gift card came within 2 weeks. So I would guess you guys should see it soon.

This time of year is nuts for them down there. Be patient. They have alot of things they are getting ready for with the State Conv. last week and Pheasant Fest. coming up and all other Chap. banquets. I was just down there(National) a couple of weeks ago to get stuff for our Chapt. banquet and they said it was crazy. I know they were loading semi's up to take stuff to Nebraska to get ready for Pheasant Fest.

If anyone here is interested in going to the Metro Area chapter banquet with Pheasants Forever let me know, I am on the committee here for the metro chapter and the banquet will be on Thursday, March 31st. We will have a number of guns raffled off and many other items up for auction or silent auction. All the money earned goes to projects that are done in counties outside of the metro area. It would be great to have a bunch of fellow FM'ers there at the banquet.

If anyone is in the northern metro, the Anoka County Pheasants Forever banquet is March 12 in Andover. There will be a four wheeler, snowmobile trailer, 20some guns, trips and more. If interested, details are in Outdoor News or on the Anoka PF website (do a search).

Fall Morning Fanatic

I joined Pheasants Forever last spring at my local banquet here in Buffalo.Spent about $250 that night.

Still have never received anything.

I don't go to banquets to win things and don't join outdoor organizations for perks.I join them because they are good for our sport.

However, I am quite bitter that I did not receive anything in the mail stating that I am a member and thanks for the support.

Will not go this year.

If you received absolutely nothing from the organization stating that you are a member, maybe your name and address did not get sent in by the local chapter. Its worth checking into.

Just my 2 cents

FMF,

I am a longtime committee member for a chapter of PF (not yours). I can tell you that banquet day is a hectic day with a million things going on and it is all done by volunteers. Not one person is paid one dime. inevitably, we lose one or two registrations for some stupid reason. Every year, we try and improve it. I guess what I am asking, is give them a break and call them up and tell them your situation. More than likely, they will correct it for you. I know those guys a little and they are good guys tryin to do the right thing. Believe me, it really is a lot of work. Right now, for our chapter, we meet every thurs nite from 7 til 11, then spend parts of another night or two working on the banquet. Seriously, give them a call and they will take care of you. Oh, you didnt by chance go to the banquet on a comp ticket did you? If so, some times they do not include memberships. I know I can speak for them in that they really appreciate your support in the past and would love to have your support in the future. It goes towards a good cause. Maybe you even want to think about becoming active in the chapter and put your efforts into making sure that what happened to you never happens to anyone else??

Best of luck. If you are interested in coming to the Anoka banquet, let me know. I will gauruntee you, we will not lose your membership.

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
