Just an update on the up coming Elk hunt.

Thanks for the info guys. We have made contact with Ruth and the CO. Learning lots with more to learn.

Turns out the Elk hunt is sort of being a Lab tech. There are two mandatory meetings prior to the hunt. You are also required to get your Elk to the Wildlife Manager within 24 hours of harvest. They need to get samples for CWD and one other test. You are also required to collect Liver, muscle, hair, tooth and blood samples. For your work you get to pay $288 for the lic.

No they do provide lots of info to help you get an elk, and the samples. You get a harvest map from 2008 - 2016. Lots of info regarding how to work with land owners in the area.

So we are planning a scouting trip to go up to Hallock to trying get an idea of where we want to focus, meet some land owners and come up with a plan.

There are several camping options available in the area but I think we are going with the hotel option. Plan on staying the whole week of our season since it is a 6hr drive each way and a once in a lifetime trip. Must be small game or fishing options up there as well. Also planing on a trip to Canada since we will be so close.

Good luck hope you guys can connect

Should be better than last year. Probably not a 5-0 start, but probably not a 3-8 finish either.

But it is still Minnesota Pro sports, so I am not going to bet on them. Heck, look at the Twins since the All Star break if you need a refresher!!

Best ice fishing weekend of the year, Superbowl weekend, for a reason..... Especially this year with the big game in town, get the heck out of town, as far away as possible.


What this guy said, plan on ice fishing on superbowl weekend for sure.

I plan on hunting or fishing every time they play

My son in law caught and butchered a 39" pike in 2009. I took the head from the gut pail and took it to a taxidermist. It is on my wall. I have always wished I had the whole fish. Do you think a body could be made and attached to the head and know of anyone who could do that? Thanks for your thoughts.

Like you have just the head mounted?

Ya it can be done

Most the time when you get a trout mounted they use a fake head on a real body for reasons I wont get into.

it would be no different in doing a repo body on a real head.
but really if you already just have the head done why not do a full repo

you could keep the repo and you could give the head to your son in law


Rick at north country taxidermy in coon rapids does good repo work you could go to his shop and check out some of the repos he has done. I know he has some hand carved ones of the world record crappie, northern, and walleye

Holy buckets that world record walleye is insane
I didn't see the crappie finished just the carving he started I though it was just a supersized carving but he goes no someone really caught it that big



But anyway that's what I would do is just get a full repo it would cost about the same anyway

Yes I wouldn't even waste my time fishing metro lakes if I was targeting smallies that's just my opinion

I have not been fishing the rum much as my fiancée has been wanting to go with and she likes to go to the sand bar where all the pontoons go on the Mississippi

I have been doing well (numbers wise not so many big one like I get on the rum) from Ramsey almost up to elk river on the Mississippi

Robinson I don't think so. It's all housing in that bay. Next closest would be St. Louis or Carsons. St. Louis is private to the homeowners in the area I believe but you could try it? Carsons is for deep haven residents only but you can put your kayak in and drive to the school by there and walk back. There are some closer places to park but like I said pretty sure you have to be a deephaven resident with a permit to park in those areas.


You can get a non resident parking pass for 60 bucks if that's worth it to you?

Rick @ North Country Taxidermy in Coon Rapids

He has done all my mounts and they turn out well.
Have not had a Northern by him but he has some in his shop that look nice.

when people who fish bass don't typically stay the weekend? From what I've seen, it seems like a lot of the bass guys will make it a day trip and leave.



Probably the same reason bass guys have 300 HP motors and fly around all over the lake. They can't sit still very long.


Exactly. The bass nuts are a different breed. 60K boats to catch a few green carp. I don't want to drive 2 hours after fishing all day. Bass vs. walleye guys are just a different breed.

60k come on I hardly doubt even a small percentage of bass guys are running a 60k boat.
Some Walleye boats have quite the price tag as well

I have been fishing the Mississippi a lot. Trolling raps up river bouncing off the bottom has been producing smallies. Last time I was out for a little bit got 12 and 2 northerns on the raps then one walleye on a meps spinner
No size to the smallies that time which is rare
