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.

Regarding the deer feeders, I guess they are legal until two weeks prior to the season opener.

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."

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
