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

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
