I know there are not many chapters left of them. I beleive the only ones around are in Blue Earth and Steele Counties. Seem to be a nice organization. Have you checked with your local chapter of Pheasants Forever? they might be something you could be interested in also. The whole Southern half of the state has a chapter in every county.

A google search puts you right on their web site.

Looks like MPInc and PF are competiting for the same $ in Steele County. Hopefully they can find common ground.

I would hope those 2 would work together and not against each other. Its like DU vs. Delta, quit criticising each other and work together

Does anyone think they would be worth getting involved with, or do you think it is a we are better than Pheasants Forever. They replied to me very fast, and invited me to a meeting. Is anybody on here involved with them?

Well I will start out with this disclaimer; I am involved with PF.

Having said that, here is my opinion. MN Pheasants Inc. may do some good things in their area and if that is what you want to accomplish, check them out as well as the local PF chapter and then make your decision. Where PF differentiates itself is that PF has a state and national presence. PF is very influential in Federal farm policy (ie CRP). The future of pheasant hunting, unfortunately, is more tied to farm policies and big conservation programs than anything. In addition, PF is an expert at leveraging state and federal grants to increase local funding for projects. That is huge.

The biggest thing though is how well do you get along with the guys. That is why i suggest you attend a meeting of both. After you do that, your decision will prolly be pretty easy.

In response to your question I will state the following. I am the current treasurer of the MN Pheasants Blue Earth County Chapter and have been with the organization now for 8 years. We have a sister organization in Steele County that I believe was started before our organization was spun off. Both have been around for well over 60 years combined. We both have events coming up in the next couple weeks and you can find out that info by sending me a message or checking out the HSOforum. The fall event we have coming up is a joint venture between our club and the local ducks unlimited chapter and that will be on Saturday Sept 26. The Steele County annual banquet will be on Thursday Sept 17.

We are always more than willing to work with other sportsmans organizations as we are all striving for the same goal and purpose. We tend to work a lot with the local DNR offices and also the Soil and Water Conservation districts.

One of our major projects that we are involved with is a very large land acquisition in Blue Earth County SW of Lake Crystal of 520 acres. This land will be available for public hunting hopefully next fall after we assist in restoring the lands. Our club has committed $100k in funding to this project so its one of our bigger contributions we have recently made. We also recently just acquired another 45 acres of land next to an existing WMA and are working on that as well.

The best way to find out more about us and what we are about is to attend one of our meetings. Our chapter holds meetings on the 2nd Thursday night of each month at 7pm in Good Thunder. If you'd like more information let me know or send us an email on our HSOforum.

Thanks,

Patrick - 2009 Treasurer MN Pheasants Inc BEC

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
