I came home tonight to find our house as had been broken into and the stuff taken mainly was my hunting gear. I had a two year old pse bow a dozen or so carbon express arrows, my blind bag for duck opener with shells quiver magnets and calls, a 2xl dry-plus jacket, a playtation2. If anyone hears of any of these things for sale would you let me know. thanks jim

Hi Jim,

Let me start by saying thieves suck! I was at a WMA bowhunting last fall and went out prepared, I had my rainsuit,(rain in the forcast), my gps to find the spot again, binoculars, and extra carbon suit. I was hunting less than a quarter mile from my truck and there was a farmer combining corn in the field by the parking area and they were still brave enough to break out my window and take all of my stuff. I guess I learned you can not go out prepared, if I can't take it into the field I don't bring it. But your home got broken into, not much defense to that! One word of advice is to try and find the serial numbers to anything that is missing and give them to the police as quickly as possible. They enter the numbers into a database of pawnshops and if anyone tries to pawn/sell them at any pawn show in Minnesota a flag goes up and they contact the police. Sorry to hear, I hope you get some stuff back, unfortunately I did not ever see anything of mine again and I had all the serial numbers. Good Luck, Mark

You bet Jim, if I hear of anything that you mentioned I'll let you know.

I'm assuming you called the cops. If so they might find the stuff. I had two guns stolen from me and they called me one day and asked if I could identify them. I did and I got them back. So there is some hope.

Was it just your house? Or did the neighbors get hit too?

Probably kids, and I doubt if your stuff is in a semi truck full of hot stuff heading to Chicago. I'll bet it's still local.

Just the thought of someone in our house stealing stuff while we aren't home gives me the creeps.

Good luck in getting your things back!

      Has anyone here had any luck on Rice Lake yet this year? All that rain a couple of weeks ago made the water level go way up and fishing opener for us was a complete bust ( although apparently someone on the lake caught a 31" walleye according to a DNR officer).   I'll be up there for at least part of the long weekend this weekend. Looking forward to some fishing. I'm contemplating targeting the bay that Morning Star Resort is on for some walleye. I don't claim to be an expert in fishing or fish behavior but it's early season so shallower seems to be better than deeper dropoffs like we would normally target during the summer. Forecasts I've seen suggest targeting bays too. Anyone have thoughts on that?   Good luck to anyone out there this weekend! Hopefully the fishing is back to normal after the weird start to the season.

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.
