4 posts in this topic

I'm interested in this can someone explain to me how this event works. Do they give you back the same axact amount of tackle you turn in and if I go in there with my box full of jigheads will they exchange them all or how does it work exactly? Thanks

I have had Mike with the MPCA out for the last 2 years in a row for a fishing league that I run. This is a terrific opportunity to find safe replacements for lead in the tackle box. With the tackle exchange program they won't typically give you an even exchange of 1 for 1, but they are usually pretty liberal with the free stuff and have alot of variety in the substitute products available.

Give it a shot, what can it hurt? How many of us have all kinds of different lead we never use in our boxes? Take that to an exchange program and give the new, safe stuff a try! It's free!

They normally don't give you the same amount back for what you turn in. Its supposed to jump start the process in your tackle box. But it is free, and a great way to start replacing the lead stuff in your tackle box with non-lead. If you want some websites with non-lead options shoot me an email and I can send you some links. I run the exchange program year round, at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Visitor Center in Eagan, I recommend not turning in your entire tackle box, because I don't have enough non-lead here to replace all that. But if you bring in a decent amount I try to match it as best I can.

    • Lets try it like this.
    • Yah - great looking decoys! MJ - I'm just letting you know I'm breaking into your house and stealing your spear rack.  And mount. I found a rickety old 5 tine when I cleaned out the garage.  I might give it a try this season.
    • I can't identify any of those for sure, and certainly wouldn't recommend eating any of them.  The first pic might be some older honey mushrooms, but it's pretty tough to tell.  I've got about 8 mushrooms that I can positively id.  Beyond that, it's just not worth being wrong.  There are still some fresh hen of the woods mushrooms around the metro if you get out into some oak woods.  You can find them around the base of big mature oaks and they are pretty easy to identify.  Found about 20 on Wednesday.  Many were a little old, but was able to take 4 nice ones home.  Here's a pic of one that I left behind.
    • I'm putting it on my calendar.  Don't forget the Nord Lord trophy since it has a new home to go to. 
    • Detroit News breaks 143 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson.   The endorsement is the first time in the paper’s 143-year history it has endorsed someone other than the Republican Party’s nominee. http://www.breitbart.com/news/detroit-news-breaks-tradition-endorses-libertarian-gary-johnson/  
    • Kind of like Trump did Monday night.
    • Gets on a bunch of talk shows. Jumps another 5 points in the polls.. This just ain't working the way it's supposed to...
    • Looks like it's unanimous then. Good thing my vote goes to Hillary since it seems everyone thinks she is the best person for the job.
    • In your situation I'd try to be standing around the time you expect the deer to show up since it sounds like your upper body will have branch cover but not lose drawing ability. I usually set up off to the side and a little behind the tree from the direction I expect the deer to come from.  That way I get the full benefit of the cover of the tree I'm in. I stand a lot though; I rarely sit.  My ears tell me quite a bit but I'm usually looking around that tree all the time and my body is close to it.  I seem to be able to get away with quite a bit of movement and am rarely at 15 feet or higher.
