  1. I tried and was unsuccessful. From what I've been hearing, they were sold out in a matter of seconds!

    Track?

    I'd say those are dog tracks. Wolf tracks are a bit more oval like seen in the pic of the tracks in the snow. But, in the dirt like that and only seeing one track, it's hard to tell. If I had to bet, I'd bet on dog.

    Very strange pic!

    That's a parasitic twin. It happens when one fetus fails to develop all the way and the other engulfs it in the womb. It's not common but it's not a rarity either (reltively speaking). Normally the parasitic twin is in the abdomen of the host twin. But, other times, like this, they can grow extra legs, arms (in humans) and even hair and teeth in other odd places. Great picture though. Thanks for sharing. Randy

    Awesome SD Hunt.

    I'm so envious of SD residents. Every year (except this one when they didn't let us non residents hunt deer) I've been out there hunting does. I can't tell you the number and size of the bucks I've seen. Of course, all I can do is watch them go by. I've had more than one wall hanger in my cross-hairs.

    Trail camera problem Moultrie brand

    I have three D55IR moultrie cams and had that same problem. I had it set to take a pic and then a video. When it wasn't taking pics I called customer service and got a rep right away. They told me to maximize battery life, set it on still pics if I really wanted to leave it out for months at a time. He also told me that things start getting weak when the battery hits about 65%. I've been changing my batteries more often and when it's cold at all, I change the cam so it takes three stills and not a still and then video. I haven't had a problem with my cams since I started doing that.

    Wolf Hunt Reports

    Yup. I was there. And, I understood that to be the changes now that we have management. But, I've been wrong before. Likely won't be the last time either. Randy

    No rats.

    The lake I live on has more muskrats than I've seen in years. Before it froze over you could look out on any calm morning and see several of them floating around. Lots of houses along the shores too. Many of the small ponds are bone dry. Those left moved to our lake!

    Wolf Hunt Reports

    I'd like to hear ONE story of a person protecting his property and NOT getting a ticket for it. (if they reported it.)

    Defeating the urge to shoot.

    You'll shoot more wall hangers if you let the "plaque racks" walk. The season is long. I hold out for a monster early bow season. The we hunt to fill the freezer for rifle season. If we have a tag open at the end, it's my tag and can then go out again. I typically won't shoot small bucks unless my cameras are showing a glut of bucks and few does. I'll gladly take a doe over any buck for the freezer as long as the population is strong. And, I like to hunt. So if I got well into December, I'm good with that!

    Wolf Hunt Reports

    Big disagreement here. My understanding is that now if you are not in the wolf zone and have a wolf in your yard or pasture you can "protect your property" and shoot it. You don't get the hide or anything other than a quick picture if you get it before the CO gets there to pick it up. But that is certainly NOT the way it was for "years." Before the wolves were given to the state to manage, if you shot one in any situation other than if was attacking you, you faced federal charges and would be prosecuted. It was a shame but even if a pack of wolves was taking down your prized show horse, all you could do was try to scare them away.
  12. Nofish said it right. There is no law against resting against a vehicle for a shot. You have to be careful what someone might consider to be "in" the vehicle. Certainly in the back of the truck but I've also heard of people being ticketed for having the gun resting "on" the vehicle. I'd rather not push my luck and have to fight a battle of technicalities. I'd put the rifle down on bi-pods next to the truck. Ready for action at a moment's notice. No problem.

    Albino deer, Legal to shoot?

    In Minnesota, it's legal to shoot albino deer. But, as always, find the answer for yourself and never take the word of anyone on the internet.

    Hog on the loose in Dakota County

    Looks like a pot-bellied pig. Likely someone's pet they got tired of. Not likely a huge threat. Probably be doing it a favor to shoot it though.

    Deer Numbers ?

    I'm in 246. Lots of deer. I bow hunt three or four nights a week. Last week on Tuesday night I had sixteen deer come past my stand. The next night I had eight come by me on a different stand. Last Sunday night I had 10 deer milling around me. I sure can't complain. More deer than last year for sure. We have a lot of small bucks out there so last year the three of us avoided shooting does as we weren't real happy with the numbers. We took three small bucks and I know those three deer weren't the main difference but anything we could do to help... Either way, it's all good now.
