WI tag situation - Clarification???

Recommended Posts

Cooter, other sconnies:

What's the tag situation in WI with the leftover permits.

Last trip to the bar I had a turkey hunter from WI tell me that leftover tags were now over the counter there for the last few seasons, and fairly cheap, even for nonresidents?

Clarification, press please?

This is the first year you can buy 'leftover' tags OTC. Previously, they'd just give you two tags but they figured out how to make money on the surplus. Also, they were supposed to be available March 10 at noon, but that got bumped to March 25 at noon, this Sat. Most units have tags available for the 5th and 6th seasons, you can go to WI DNR website and get all the zone, season, tag info. Once at the home page, look under "Current Issues" on the right side of the page - the turkey info is listed first. Prices are $10 for res and $15 for nonres.

Cooter:

Thanks much! I think at $15, there'll be quite a few of us mud-ducks eating cheese curds late May.

Thanks too for the info on where to find the info.

No prob - its a great opportunity and I personally like the later seasons anyway - I apply for 4th and then 5th seasons each year. If you or any other mud ducks decide to come over, let me know and I'll see if I can help put you on some beards.

Ha!

I was wondering if this would come up! They've got themselves in a licensing/revenue pickle.

$15 if still available for sure!

Well guys, you've still got to buy your license and stamp. That's not included in the tag price. And the extra tags are going fast, only a few areas left when I checked yesterday.

Knew it looked too good to be true. Tag price of $15 for NR permit, plus the $65 and change for the license and stamp.

Oh, I forgot, zone 7 had a severe winter kill and all the longbeards have perished. J/K - should be plenty of opportunities for you - that 5th season is one of my favorites. You got a rangefinder? I don't and that almost cost me a hoss gobbler last year when the arrow went low - except I had the backup 870 in the blind with me grin.gif

      Warm temperatures and dry conditions mean increased wildfire risk, so the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will restrict open burning in the following counties effective immediately: Anoka, Benton, Chisago, Douglas, Grant, Hennepin, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Pope, Ramsey, Sherburne, Stearns, Stevens, Todd, Traverse, Washington, and Wright.  The state will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste in these counties until restrictions are lifted. “Escaped debris burns are the number one cause of wildfires, so that’s why we issue these restrictions,” said Casey McCoy, DNR fire prevention supervisor. “They really work—we’ve reduced wildfires by nearly a third since we started spring burning restrictions in 2001.” McCoy encourages residents to use alternatives to burning, such as composting, chipping, or taking brush to a collection site. For information on how to compost yard debris, visit the DNR’s guide to composting yard debris. People who burn debris will be held financially responsible if their fire escapes and burns other property. Burning restrictions will be adjusted, including extension of restrictions to additional counties, as conditions change. For information and daily updates on current fire risk and open burning restrictions, visit the Minnesota DNR website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Flying a drone can be a lot of fun—but it can be downright dangerous during a wildfire, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Most people wouldn’t dream of driving their car in front of a fire engine that’s responding to a fire,” said Casey McCoy, the DNR’s fire prevention supervisor. “Flying your drone during a wildfire is just as reckless: we have to ground our planes until the drone gets out of the way, and that slows down our ability to fight the fire.” This happened last year during a wildfire in Little Falls: DNR pilots had to land firefighting helicopters because a drone was buzzing overhead. According to McCoy, “interfering with fire operations in this way is dangerous for our aircraft, firefighters on the ground, and the general public.” The reason drones pose such a problem is because they fly at roughly the same altitude as wildfire suppression aircraft. Even a small drone can cause a fire-fighting helicopter to crash if the drone makes contact with the aircraft. Flying a drone over a wildfire isn’t just dangerous, it’s illegal: Federal law prohibits interfering with firefighting operations, and that includes flying a drone over a wildfire. To protect firefighting aircraft, temporary flight restrictions may extend over a 5-mile radius of a wildfire. Even if temporary flight restrictions are not in place, people will be penalized if their drone is caught near a wildfire. Be fire wise and fire safe. No photo or video is worth the risk. Drop the drone near all wildfires. For more information about drones and wildfires, log onto the National Interagency Fire Center. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Supposedly this fish was snagged.  I am reading online at various sources that it may be prohibited from state record certification.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂
