My Dad has permission to hunt geese in a cornfield in Isanti Cty.

Well, he went up north to hunt deer so I figured I would hit the corn field. I pull up the field and see that it was recently harvested, I'm thinking great. I go to the back of the truck to get the dekes and the Warden pulls in next to me. He askes what I'm doing and I tell him that I'm going to goose hunt this field. He askes if I have permission and I say I do, he proceeds to tell me that all of the land owners have agreed to not let anyone hunt until 1pm. Then he askes me if I'm ok with that. At the time what am I going to say. I take off my camo and go home.

On the way home a couple of thoughts go thru my mind.

1. Can they do that? Not let you hunt until a certin time?

2. Why would he ask me if I was ok with that?

Anybody else run into something like this?

If your Dad had permission for himself AND family members, I'd have gone back to the landowner. Because of what the CO said to you makes me think he thought you really didn't have permission and was just gonna send you on your way. Of course land owners can have "rules" but yur Dad would have been told that.

I would have talked to the land owner. Talk to your dad and the landowner, if you find out the info the warden gave you was incorrect report him.

Are you sure he was a c/o, not just someone who just B/s 'd his way onto the land you were going to hunt. Since you were there why not go back and check.

You sure it wasnt' due to deer opener? They might not have wanted a lot of blasting if they were deer hunting nearby. (I would think they WOULD want it, but who knows.) Just wondering.

It was a CO, badge, gun & truck with all of the gadgets in it.

I thought about talking to the land owner but then again it was 5:00 am.

I was thinking about the deer opener and maybe the landowners didn't want any interference.

I will stop by and have a chat with the land owner this week. I want to try and get out this Sat.

Thanks,

Mike

What part of Isanti Co.? I think with the Gov. in town for the opener the area land owners and law enforcement were shutting down most things not related to the Govenors Deer Opener.

If you were close to an area being used for the event that may be why you were shut down. Especialy with a quick response like you said. 5:00am. and all.

Personally, while deer hunting this weekend I had several duck hunters near by. One in a pond real near, and there must have been another set out some place. I'm not sure what the situation was where you were, but I enjoyed having them around. I felt as if they would push deer my way? And at least I had something to listen to, they were pulling up a lot this weekend on mallards in my area. So unless, someone was going to be pushing that specific field/area for deer I'm not sure what the problem would be.

I don't know, just my opinion but I'm sure many would disagree with me. Deer weren't moving this weekend anyways - anything to get them going would be nice!

yes for sure, it was like that for our group up north near Bemidji. We saw a few but not as many we'd see in past years. Hopefully this weekend will be better.

I dont know what the deal is with the CO talking to you about not hunting til 1 pm. It's weird. crazy

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
