Visited by the Warden Sat am

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?

Mike

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.

G.C.

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

    • Keep voting democrat, Minnesota.....
    • Human nature. Especially when one is emotionally invested in elections.   I haven't commented too much on this Russian stuff. Could be true. Could be all just many upset about the election results.    At the very least, Trump may be just getting a taste of his own medicine(the claim he had evidence BHO was not a citizen, the National Enquirer stories about Cruz)
    • Did "YOU" and the "WIFE" enjoy growing up in the cities?  Me personally I grew up in a farm town in southern MN and have lived in Shakopee for the past 25 years.  I absolutely cannot stand living in the cities.  Everything is amped up 500%.  Driving is nuts. Traffic is nuts.  Ever ride your bike down Minnehaha falls on the weekend?  Kids sports is outrageous.  In general if you want to fish, sled, atv, your driving up north...with everyone else on a Friday night.  Unless you get lucky as heck most neighbors are either phony as heck or you never see them.  Seems as though most folks never leave the house.  Unless you have lots of space/land you will have neighborhoods doing fireworks whenever, dogs barking, snowblowing at 10:00PM etc...  Kids rarely go out and play in the cities.  I've discovered that they are constantly being shuttled to event after event, so the notion that the kids on the street will play together is few and far between.  The schools, at least in Shakopee have been great from an educational standpoint!  However because they shift classes and actual schools every few years, my girls have never had the same classmates.  In the town I grew up in we only had 120 kids in the class, so you pretty much knew every kid.  Bussing can be quite limited when your kid wants to do afterschool activities and sports.  Talk about income inequality...in my hometown the farmer was generally the "rich guy" but you never really knew it.  In the cities you definitely know who the rich folks are and boy does it bring out the competition in folks.  And I'm not talking CEO's and big wigs, I'm talking 2 professionals pulling down 6 figures each.    That's the other thing most people skim over when talking about the greatness of the metro.  Sure if you can afford $125 tickets for the wild game, or $85 tickets for a play, or "shopping" as your activity it IS a great place.  But if your not willing to pony up the money for those events it can be a little boring.  That's why I enjoy Shakopee in that I can head down to the river and take a nice long walk in peace and quiet.  Especially in the winter!   Maybe because I'm getting older and older but this notion that life is all about money, money, money seems less and less important.  Granted I understand you have to make a living and provide for your family, which is why I deal with it, but ultimately you have decide what your family wants out of life.  That is why I am encouraging my kids to seek a life away from the big metro area.  Especially since they enjoy being outside so much.  Full disclose we bought a small cabin last year as our way to "deal with it".  Now I have a place to go to get away AND in 6 years when my youngest graduates high school I will be out of here...  Good luck!!!!
    • True, but we have liberal corporate run media and the fact you are seemingly blind to that fact shows your bias.     
    • my old house was a 6.5 x 12' (No V front) with an outside 2x4' in front for bathroom.   I really didn't notice any difference in towing it.  I know a guy who had his house built with about 2' wide V in front which opens the entire area up quite a bit and he wishes now he would have went 3' wide.  And this still gives you plenty of space on the V to put your LP tanks.     Wish I would have done that on my new 8x16'.   The little gas the V front may save you, to me is not worth the value of that extra space.    
    • I thought there was no point?
    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
