8 posts in this topic

This is the best thing to happen to archery since the invention of the arrow, I have been helping the minnesota amature trap shooting association on the youth day since I was too old to participate I encourage everyone to take a child out and teach them the sport you love so much.

TAKE A KID TO THE RANGE WITH YOU

WHEN YOU SEE THE SMILE ON THEIR

FACE AND THE SPARK IN THEIR EYE

YOU KNOW YOU HELPED THEM!!!

Here's the results. Congrats to all!

The top male and female student archers who participated March 28 in the

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) National Archery In

The Schools Program (NASP) state tournament each received their choice

of a lifetime hunting or fishing license.

Chantelle Skarda of South Campus High School in White Bear Lake and

Austin Bosse of Jackson Middle School finished first in the individual

male and female competitions. In addition to the lifetime licenses,

Skarda and Bosse also received a Genesis bow and a Morrell target.

“Nearly 700 students from throughout the state participated in the

tournament,” said Kraig Kiger, DNR shooting sports program

administrator. “NASP keeps involving more schools, more students, and

more families in the safe and fun lifetime activity of archery.”

Five years ago, 56 student archers shot in the state tournament,

shooting high scores just above 200. This year, 689 students from 48

schools participated with high scores ranging from 275 to 290. Archers

must shoot 30 arrows into the target bullseye to achieve a perfect score

of 300.

Statewide, 96,656 students from 285 schools participate in NASP. The

DNR’s Archery in the Schools grant program provides $1,500 in funding

to qualifying schools to defray the cost of equipment and

program-related training.

Tournament results include:

Weston Bovitz of Champlin Park High School was the top high school male

finisher. Holly Petry of White Bear Lake was the top female in the

middle school age group. Top elementary age group finishers were Josie

Zimmerman and Cole Anderly, both from Grandview Middle School in Mound.

The top five male and female individuals in the elementary, middle

school and high school divisions were awarded medals for their efforts

and earned an opportunity to attend the NASP National Championships May

8-9 in Louisville, Ky.

White Bear Lake took first place in the National High School Division.

Jackson Middle School finished first in the National Middle School

Division. Hilltop Primary School in Mound took first place in the

National Elementary School Division. Each team earned an opportunity to

participate in the NASP National Championships.

In the State Division, North Country Archers of Grand Rapids finished

first in the high school age group, St. Croix Prep in Stillwater took

first in the middle school age group and Mountain Iron/Buhl finished

first in the elementary age group.

The top three teams in each division and each age group received

trophies. All teams scoring above 2,500 in the elementary group, 2,600

in the middle school group and 2,700 in the high school group earned an

invite to the NASP National Championships.

Students in grades 4-6 competed in the elementary age group. Students

in grades 7-8 competed in the middle school age group. Students in

grades 9-12 competed in the high school age group.

Jill McKinney from Northalnd High School in Remer was selected as NASP

Coach of the Year. McKinney won the award because of her program’s

involvement of students in a wide variety of activities and her ability

to maintain a well-rounded and respected NASP program. McKinney will

serve on the committee that selects next year’s coach of the year

winner.

I help with the Chisago Lakes NASP program, we just started it this year so we did not compete in the tournament this year.. but hope to maybe next year. It was nice, on friday the day before the tournament Chantelle came to help teach our elem students. She was very nice. And a heck of a shot! I'm not surprised that she won it again...

Here is a podcast I did with Chantelle back in 2007...

        Alpha trout at head of feed lane. Maybe in fast broken water Subordinates all over hole but not close to alpha. Cast into top most part of fast funnel. Alpha waiting part way down the skinny feed funnel. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. When wading, wake control a large factor here. Stay out of water if you can. Make first cast count or will get only dinks in this hole.

      Bigger trout from area wintering at bottom of slow water near the fast water. Not in fast water. Subordinates chased out of hole by bigger trout. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. Cast into top of feed funnel and slow retrieve so presentation will get down to trout sitting on bottom just back from the end of the fast water.

      Trout extra wary on sunny no vegetation winter outing. Don't slap hole with line. Stay out of the water when attacking hole. Will be a one fish "only" hole due to water clarity and zero vegetation in hole. Any smart fish will spook when one is battled and drug through this clear non-vegetated hole.
    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
