Senate File Number SF0142

Recommended Posts

picksbigwagon

There is a file being presented at the state legislature this winter to make wireless remote controlled predator callers legal to use for coyote hunting.

Currently, all wireless remote controlled callers (from foxpro and minaska all the way down to a cass creek) are illegal. There is a loop hole in the "using radio equipment" regulation, but this senate file if passed by both the house and senate will eliminate that loop hole by making wireless remote callers legal for coyote hunting.

Here is the link to look at the language and there are links there to contact your state representative and senator and tell them you want this file to pass.

It's great that this might be changed. I believe it was based on a technicality in the first place. The law was originally passed to ban the use of remote controls with spinning wing decoys such as the Mojo and Lucky Ducks. Technically that meant that remote controls for predator calls were also illegal. I believe congress overlooked this fact the first time they passed it.

My dad bought his Fox Pro w/remote two years ago. Soon after he bought it, he stopped to chat with the warden on the road and the topic of coyote hunting came up. Dad (who was proud to show off his new toy)actually pulled the FoxPro out and demonstrated how well it worked using the remote. All the warden said is, "That is simply AWESOME!", not even mentioning the fact that the remote was technically illegal.

There was a big discussion about the new "hand held" light law as well. People were wondering if mounting a light on their gun was still considered to be "Hand held". Once again, we read so far into this stuff. So, being conerned about this techicality, dad called the warden to ask. He said it was okay.

It is good to get these laws straight though. Taking away all of the grey areas will eliminate confusion.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
