Like it says in the Garage Logic intro: "the state where nothing is allowed"

BTW: deer baiting is not allowed either, yet they sell the feeders here. What's up with that?

deer feeding can contribute to CWD. I would assume that stores in MN sell them as some residents hunt in states that allow feeding.

If I'm not mistaken, it isn't illegal to feed the deer, only to use the feeder as bait.

Likewise, it isn't illegal to own or have the lights, only to use them for the taking of fish.

Yes, I do believe its illegal to feed deer if its a corn pile or such placed in the woods before deer season.

There is an article about deer baiting in the newest "Conservation Volunteer", but I've not read it yet.

There are a lot of things that one can find at a store that are illegal. Be aware of the regs is all I can say.

What I really hate is when you buy something that is currently legal and then the next year is outlawed.

That cast net is gathering a lot of dust in my garage. wink

Marijuana pipes aren't legal, yet there are entire stores that sell nothing but them. There are always loopholes in laws people seem to sidestep, deer feeders may be used as sheep, goat, etc feeders, thats why they might get away with it.

Better read my post again, Cliffy. I said there are ways to sidestep laws, and you just basically said the same thing. They say the pipes are "tobacco" pipes. If you, me and anyone else buys that, we all belong in the nut house. Its a loophole in the law, and they know that. Those pipes are made for marijuana, and we all know that, and eventually will be made illegal, alot of states are already in the process of making them illegal.

Yeah, that is what I was trying to say...I was simply pointing out that they are not illegal in themselves......they are only illegal if they have been used. It appears we agree.

I think it will be a loooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnggggg time before MN makes just the unused pipes illegal. Currently, possession of an actual used MJ pipe is the same as a simple speeding ticket.

Like said before, there are plenty of things that are sold at a retail level that are illegal to use in some form or another.

The lights the poster is talking about had to be a variation of the "evening Secret" I'm sure.

But....

"Using an artificial light to lure or attract fish is unlawful. Exception: While angling, a person may affix to the end of a fishing line a lighted artificial bait with hooks attached. Any battery that is used in lighted fishing lures cannot contain any intentionally introduced mercury."

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. Plus lots to do around the Brainerd area if you don't want to sit in the camper on a rainy day. Last weekend we ran up to Walker to Reeds and pick a gal of Blue Berries on the way.
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
