1st Annual HSO Pumpkin Carving Contest

Recommended Posts

Corey Bechtold

Fun, fun, fun!!! This is a contest where creativity will reign supreme. There is a youth and adult contest and the winners will be chosen by HotSpot Outdoors Pro Staff. What we are looking for is a pumpkin carving relating to the great outdoors. Deer, Fish, Wildlife, nature scenes or anything relating to great outdoors. Try and get the kids involved as much as possible. If we have good success this might become an annual event. Here is what you need to do...

1)Get a pumpkin and carve it out.

2)Create your design and cut it out.

3)Take a digital photo and display it in the “Pumpkin Carvings” link in the Photo Sharing forum. If possible try and take a photo at night with a candle or light in the pumpkin. Be sure to note if the pumpkin was carved by a youth or adult. If possible take the photo with your child and their pumpkin.

4)On the photo be sure to include your e-mail address so the winners can be notified.

There will be a first, second and third place for each division.

Be sure to have fun and good luck to all,

Happy carvings laugh.gif,

Here are ours.. they were so big I put them on the roof so the kids do not trash them right away. Nothing special but fun for the kids.

      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?
