Went out for about an hour yesterday, flushed a hen right away then as I was looking at that flushed a rooster took a poke at it but missed. Couple seconds later another rooster flushed but was way too far. I saw where it landed but by the time we got to the cover it was in it was long gone. Decided to go home and get some yard work done and flushed another hen on the way back.

Just your garage? If you were singled out its someone that knows you I suspect.


I wouldn't necessarily say that. Could be just someone who lives at his apartment or someone who is friends with someone at the apartment. I mean its kind of hard to miss someone putting a boat in a garage.

You know lets say Becky at apartment 1B has her **** head brother over for beers Friday night. He sees the boat being put away decides hey maybe this guy has some stuff worth taking in there.

Hunting public land you definitely have to be willing to go where others aren't especially after the first week or 2 no matter what kind of game you are hunting. If it's grouse, go off the beaten path you will be rewarded. If it's pheasants push those cat tails!

Anyway, plenty of birds to be had on public land you just have to be willing to push a little farther than where others will go, the reward is almost always worth it.

Agreed if you don't have scratches on your face and poked in the eye a couple times by branches your not grouse hunting

Remember if you're wanting to hunt Nemadji,lots of atv on the weekend,good for walking mon-thurs.

The trick is to walk were the atvs cant go. I hunt it on the weekends and yes it is busy but you can get away from it. Too many times people say a place sucks because they wont leave the gravel or logging trail.

Last time I went to Nemadji the guy I was with only wanted to walk on the trails. Guess how many birds he saw. 0 I said forget you and walked off trail and I flushed 18.

I always hunt public land for grouse and I always thought most other people do too The 40 acre and 80 acre private land is deer hunting I have and I am not about to go tromping through it during bow season to get a couple birds just not enough land to do that.

Like someone said before Nemadji is a great place they have a grouse management area I usually do well at.
If you are looking at Hinckley try the Sandstone wildlife management area. I have pulled a few birds from there
Solona state forest is worth a check as well as the milacs wma

thanx RH....

Another thought Rein about cooking,when I lived in Alaska and colorado we would catch land locked silvers called Kokanee,like pinks they were mushy to pan fry or bake so we made patties,about the only way we could eat them,have you tried this? I suspect smoked they would be good as well but I perfer a more solid flesh smoked like steelhead or atlantic salmon,but thats me,even chinooks get mushy smoked but make darn good salmon jerky in long strips.

I make salmon cake patties mmmm mmm mmm

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
