Where can I buy....

Recommended Posts

Where can I buy a clipped wing piegon for training? Looking for someplace as close to Blaine as possible but not afraid to drive if I have to. Also what could I expect to pay?

Thanks!

Do you have any farms in your area? If so, stop by one some day and ask the farmer if he/she would mind if you went into the barn and caught one with your fishing net. It really isn't that difficult to do. The hardest part for me is asking the farmer. It is the biggest reason I don't pheasant hunt that much.

I wouldn't think it would cost much more than a couple of bucks.

GOOD LUCK!!

Hey GUS,

I'm going to be setting out one of my traps this weekend.

To start trapping for my pup to work on pointing.

Could probably hook you up with one late next week or the week after. Once they get used to the trap."Their not the brightest birds!"

I'll let you know when I have one for you. I work in Coon Rapids M-F 7-4:30pm on E River Rd. Then I could show you how to pull the primary flight feathers also.

I'll shoot you an E-mail when we get some bagged.

Later,

Chris

Hey Sportfishin

Hows that ugly dog of yours doing? If I am not mistaken you got him from Mark in Duluth right? I had pick of the litter on that one but got a my Griff closer to home same sire. Kinda of a bummer my ended up with entropian eye must be in the blood lines somehwere and nobody fessed up to it. Anyway I saw a post of yours about doing the NA test in May I was thinking about that one but I think maybe I'll wait till June give him a little more time to sort things out. i've got him about 75% whoa trained and about half force broke to retrieve. He swam like a fish last summer but I was a little disapointed in his pointing I only saw a few solid points hopefully he will come around. I'll be trapping piegons soon myself. Let me know how you make out at the test. Shoot me a e-mail if you feel like it.

      My transducer issue was during open water.   My hypothesis after several transducers was that freezing them after having been in the water damaged them.    Once I stopped letting them freeze then they stopped going bad.   Maybe some water was getting into them and causing damage when it froze.   The transducer in my Minnkota  US2 is fine with freezing.

      I fished by the Lester area yesterday n today. I was in 75-78’ water. Had one school of coho’s chase my jig all the way to the bottom of the ice. I looked down the hole and was amazed by the fish just swarming around my jig and just nipping the tale. That was my very first time out there. Didn’t catch any, but seeing those fish made it all worth it. At Lester there is an Easier way out there if you go to the south side of the river. It’s an easier trail to follow out onto the lake. There must be some open water just north of there. There was a lot of mallards flying around and landing. ?

      I don’t have what your requesting , but you can do just as I did to verify such changes by calling the Mn DNR at 651-296-6157 ...

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.

      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?
    • Wanderer
      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄

      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.
    • artjaco
      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
