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.

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

      Our last trip last year required driving through a snow storm! But that time of year is special!

      Will fish around Paynesville, Cass Lake and maybe Osakis.  I generally fish right up to freeze up/firearms deer season in the boat.

      Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge

      I am spending Labor Day week on Kabetogama with my wife. Never been to Kab before so I am looking forward to hopefully figuring out a new lake with good multi-species potential. Any tips from anybody would be appreciated. After that it will be the anticipation of late October and Rainy River! That is probably my favorite trip of the year.

      A project to improve long-term water quality and wildlife habitat on Pelican Lake in Wright County may cause some short-term inconvenience for waterfowl hunters this fall, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  The public water access managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on the west side of Pelican Lake will not be usable for boats larger than a canoe or kayak, due to lower water levels created by a drawdown of the lake. While boats may be launched from the state-managed public water access on the southwest side of the lake, parking there is limited. Parking is not allowed within the immediate ramp area; it also is prohibited along the shoulders of 40th Street Northeast, the adjacent road. The DNR is in the process of designing and constructing a new public boat access on the northwest corner of Pelican Lake.  The project will be started in the fall, but likely will not be completed this year. Some private lake access may be available by arrangement with local landowners; contact DNR area wildlife manager Fred Bengtson for more information: 320-223-7840. Pelican Lake is in the middle of a multi-year drawdown aimed at improving water quality and creating better habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. Once considered a waterfowl mecca, slowly rising water levels over some 30 years had killed much of the aquatic vegetation that stabilizes shoreline and provides needed food for migrating ducks. With help from Ducks Unlimited and constitutionally dedicated money from the Legacy Fund, an outlet was created for the lake in 2014 to lower water levels in several stages, with a pumping facility added in 2016. The drawdown will allow soils to consolidate and promote the growth of aquatic vegetation needed by ducks for food and habitat. In addition to providing critical waterfowl habitat, the project also will result in significantly cleaner water. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I have a metal roof on my house near Cook, I installed it about thirteen years ago still looks/works great. Replaced my shingled roof at home(Pine Island) last year, the shingles lasted 17 years before they were lookin pretty tough. That would be twice I've replaced shingles at home in 35 years.   The major problem I have with steel is when the snow melts off of the roof, it will all come off at one time. If your car, or the door you use to get in and out of your house is under the eave's, you WILL have an issue. Last spring enough snow came off of my roof in one melting, that it would have buried, and I'm sure crushed my truck. The snow drift after that melting was about 10' wide, and 4' deep. You better plow it right away, or you will have an ice drift that you cannot remove. The only other issue, is that when it rains it really runs off of the roof. You will get wet standing under the eaves of your house. The rain come's off in sheets.  You could use gutters or deflectors, but the snow coming off in the spring will also remove your gutters/deflectors, guaranteed. A door on the gable end of your house will take care of the rain and snow problem.   Other than that I think the steel roof is great, it is easy to apply, and is guaranteed for 40 years. I don't plan on ever using shingles again, have converted most of my buildings to steel! With shingles you might get 20 years, then you get to hire somebody to come out, and replace your shingles again. LOL And NO, it is not so loud in my house when it rains, that you can't hear yourself think. LOL And No, I don't sell/install steel roofing, I'm just sold on the stuff.   I can't recommend a good or fair roofer/contractor, I do my own work. I can recommend a good/fair electrician/concrete guy. If you pm me, I'll tell you a plumber NOT to hire.   Jim
