Recommended Posts

frabillfisher

Down the road from me when you turn to go on hwy 1 from 83 heading to fergus i saw 3 dead to me looked like does laying in the ditch all in the same spot with from what i could get after all the rain and stuff looked like the front quaters had been taken out?..what the heck gotta be poachers if so they were stupid ones to dump them rite there on a main road?what do you guys think because theres no deer seasons open that i know of and who would just trow them in a ditch like that?...whats the chances of a car hitting 3 deer at the same time unlikely i would think? confused.gif

Call TIP if you believe there is some illegal crap going on.

Don't wait for opinions on what happened. Time is tickin'.

Did you inspect them closely to believe they may have been shot? I have seen 2 deer in the exact spot from getting hit, but never 3 in one spot. But, I wouldn't be all that surprised either. Just last week on my way to the cabin in Battle Lake, I had a doe and a pair of fawns cross in front of me, and they were all close enough together that if my timing was a bit earlier, I coulda had lots of fresh loins at the expense of my truck.

It wouldn't suprise me if it was poachers. Last year me and Kowalleyeski were trying to shoot squirrels on a WPA and there was a buck that was shot and the horns cut off. This really makes a guy mad.

Yeah I'm not saying that it is for sure poachers, just that it does happen and there is a chance that it is poachers.

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
