If you win the lottery you win the lottery, doesn’t matter if you chose to receive that reward or not, you have burned your preference points. This is one of the reasons for the area 99 option; you gain a point but cannot hunt. It is a way to keep points but not burn up tags.

KevFish, thanks for looking that info up.

As for those that apply then do not hunt I feel that is not only a great tragedy but pure disrespect for fellow hunters. I have had father son teams unable to win a tag, I have seen young men and women try to hunt before they head off to Iraq, Afghanistan of who knows what other hell hole. Every year I have at least two or three hunters who had their goal and plans of hunting black bear crushed by the lottery results. Then to hear comments of people applying for tags just incase they may get the inkling to hunt but most likely plan on never really getting out and doing it really gets under my skin. Those are not just tags you are playing around with; they are my livelihood, they are the dreams of people, the excitement of a young adolescent going on a hunt with his father, the plans of a working man whom has pulled double shifts to make the money and time to go. Anyone that applies for a tag knowing they most likely will not hunt should actually be ashamed of themselves.

BooHoo...You're an [PoorWordUsage]! You hate people like me huh? Who donate time to help the DNR with surverys, build trails, Donate time out on lakes and take water samples, donate money to fund programs, purchase stamps when I don't even hunt those birds, buys his wife a fishing license who hasen't a wet a line in five years, belongs to multiply hunting and fishing clubs, ATV clubs, snowmobile clubs. You think you know me or any other hunter? I'm guessing you're a guide by your response? I don't know you or what you do, how YOU help out, but complaining about how you hate "US" people???? get over yourself. When "we" people who would like to hunt, and trust me, would rather be hunting then what we have to do, can't make it out cause we can't foresee what next fall brings and have gotten drawn but didn't buy a license...I'm pretty sure they can go buy the extra license over the counter.

I can also tell you I apply for a doe tag every year too!!! Hey guess what, I only shot one doe in the past three years and I had a doe tags, but managed two take bucks the others!!!!

I Donate what little or as much money as i can to our wildlife services and more importantly I donate TIME! Maybe I'm selfish and I don't care...I feel I deserve the CHANCE of hunting bear so yes...I'll continue to apply every year and if I get drawn and and can't go come Sept 1st...I won't feel the least bit sad. Go ahead and Charge for an application fee...I'll still pay every year cause I know where the money is going....to what I love the most, the good outdoors.

Oh and p.s. I'm not even close to rich where I can just throw away money. But this is what I do for fun and enjoyment...Hunt and fish so I believe in helping the cause. I also work full time and find time to volunter.

Hate people like me....

Pulleye,

I think that is great that you donate all of your time, energy, and money toward the outdoors. We need more people like you. And I don't think anybody hates you or people like you. I think people maybe get upset with the idea of someone winning the application process and then not going through with getting the license.

Let's just say, for the sake of the discussion, there are 100 tags in a certain zone. Let's say 150 people apply for that zone. All 100 "winners" could decide they aren't hunting that year, which would be their right to do. But that also means 50 people will not be hunting that zone regardless if the 100 who "won" the application buy a license or not.

Again, I don't think anyone is trying to make personal attacks...at least I hope not. We're all in this together. I hope you get to go this fall.

Well Pulleye I do not recall or see in my post or text that you yourself fully quoted stating I hated anyone or referred to hating "US People" as you utilized in your reply. You took it upon yourself to use those words. Although you did throw a nice little fit and sling out some name calling so I hope you do feel better about yourself now and can get on with what I was truly saying. And I quote

"Anyone that applies for a tag knowing they most likely will not hunt should actually be ashamed of themselves."

I standby that statement and will even go farther to say more restrictions should go onto doe tags. You apply for a doe tag yet brag about making it point to not utilize that tag. Good thing the money, staffing and resources you are so very proud of where expended to establish x-amounts of doe tags in attempts of herd management only to have them consumed by greed instead of need and not utilized. This puts a big variable into the equation of herd management. I would like to see doe tags issued in priority to elderly hunters, disabled hunters, new hunters and youth hunters to help increase interest in hunting. I also think it would be great if you had a doe tag yet registered a buck you lose preference when it comes time to request the next doe tag.

Oh and just so you do know donating funds or time, buying unneeded licenses or any other form or contribution does not justify special rights or generate a higher standard for anybody...unless you are running for office. Sorry but just the way it is.

I hope they do this, also. Those tags should not go to waste. Sometimes things come up and people can't go hunting for whatever reason, but then someone else who did plan should be able to purchase the tag.

This would be perfect, many states do this with ELk, Mule Deer, Turkeys etc etc.

Put a purchase deadline on the tag and allow for administrative time before offering them over the counter or a second drawing.

You're totally right JonnyP...what was I thinking! God forbid we have any freedoms out in the woods and what we choose to do. Your even more right on the doe tags. Cause I was just thinking the Doe tag gave me the option of if I didn't have the chance to bag a nice buck I could take a doe later in the season if luck would have it. stupid me!! You're to caught up in all the political [PoorWordUsage]...Life isn't fair and deal with it. Every good idea that someone has, ten more will shoot it down.

If I get drawn this year maybe you can take me out...It will be a hoot!

This is from HF3124 and was recomended to pass yesterday by the last committee to hash it over...it is now in ways and means...so, we'll see what happens!

A person selected through a drawing must purchase a license by the Friday

closest to July 31. Any remaining available licenses not purchased shall be issued beginning the following Wednesday to those who applied unsuccessfully. Any remaining available licenses not purchased by unsuccessful applicants may then be issued the following week beginning on Wednesday to any eligible person as prescribed by the commissioner on a first-come, first-served basis.

Sec. 31. [97B.4251] BAITING BEAR; USE OF DRUM.

Notwithstanding section 97B.425, a private landowner or person authorized by the private landowner may use a drum to bait bear on the person's private land. The drum must be securely chained or cabled to a tree so that it cannot be moved from the site by a bear and the drum may not include a mechanical device for dispensing feed. The drum must be marked with the name and address of the person who registered the bait site. For

purposes of this section, "drum" means a 30 gallon or larger drum.

Well, it's just in the house now and the senate companion bill doesn't have any of this wording in it, but does have some similar or equal language on other topics and that bill passed in it's third reading in the senate yesterday....so, I would guess that they will end up rolling both these bills into one omnibus bill and it will all have to be rehashed again by both the house and senate....we couldn't be so lucky as to have them both agree on each other's bills....the senate version includes more statewide deer feeding restrictions, penalties for feeding deer, allowing the use of up to 4 power scopes on muzzeloaders,(by everyone), authorizing the use of two lines year round when fishing,(for summer you would have to purchase a 2nd line endorsement for ten bucks)...etc...and none of that is in the house version...I really think it will take some time...if you want to read the whole bill...it's SF2900 and HF3124. just go to the Legislative update link on the dnr home page.

I really hope PullEYE 16 CAN participate in the hunt this year, but unfortunately does not get drawn because some real "outdoorsman" who has little to no knowledge of the lottery process applied for the slim chance he might hunt. What a joke!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but May 26th IS late May! When are the bear results going to be available? I e-mailed the DNR last week, but I got the usual response- nothing.

They have to do something about unused tags. Sure a few may be some guys that just could not go, but this was from the Aitkin paper last year. A lot of unused tags. Even with the lack of hunters and all Boar's help I could not shoot one.

"Bear Quota Area 51 covers some 4,575 square miles and includes all of Aitkin County and most of Carlton County, but it also includes small portions of Crow Wing, Cass, Itasca, Mille Lacs, St. Louis, and Pine Counties. Some 3,800 hunters applied for the 2,500 available permits but to date, only 1,787 of those eligible hunters have actually bought a license."

My boy and I applied again this season after taking last year off(divorce court). Hopefully we draw a tag. I to worry the anti's will try to snag most of the tags, especially with the bear documentary that was filmed in our hunting area debut in April. Lots of anti centiment in the blogs all over the internet after the airing of the documentary.

    • Here's an old post I found about the WI explosion:   mtbucket Posted February 6, 2012 Thoughts and prayers to this man and his family. It makes me wonder if he was one of the guys that said " I have done it for years with no problems". POLK COUNTY (WCCO) — One person is dead and another is in the hospital after a garage explosion and fire Saturday, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office says the incident occurred at 657 U.S. Highway 8 in Apple River Township. Stanley Johnson, 81, was inside the garage “actively filling a small 1 lb LP cylinder from a larger 20 lb tank” when the small tank ruptured and ignited the escaping gas. Johnson’s wife, 77-year-old Nancy Johnson, was in the garage area when the explosion occurred. She was pronounced deceased on scene. Stanley Johnson was able to escape the garage. He was transported to Amery Regional Medical Center for treatment of his injuries
    • I remember the pictures you posted of your neighbors house. Those pictures along with the news paper article about the guy from WI that blew up his garage and killed his wife were enough to convince me not to refill 1lb tanks.
    • Just my opinion but I find the 1 pounders to be convenient. I used to hook up a hose to my mr. Heater/Cooker years ago and run off a 20 pounder and I almost melted through the hose. I never found dealing with a hose and a tank to be as convenient as using the 1 pounders.    For me, if it were all about saving a couple of bucks, I would just buy my fish in a store. It seems funny to me that guys that spend thousands of dollars to sit on a sheet of ice and catch fish would risk their safety trying to save a couple of bucks on propane.   But again, that's just my opinion.
    • Thanks for all the info fellas! I ended up buying two 140 mm fans, but have only installed one.  I decided to take it one step further and install a thermo fan switch. I actually ended up buying the switch and mounting plate directly from empire for $30. This way the fan cycles with the heat. The switch kicks in about 5 min after the heat turns on and runs from about 5 min after it turns off. Using the switch should keep things more consistent.  I wired it up to a SPDT On-Off-On switch so that I can run it either in thermoswitch mode or manual.   As far as the fans go, the 140 mm seem are quieter and draw less (0.16 amp) than the 120 mm fans due to the reduced RPM requirements. One thing that I did notice though is that although they are rated high on the CFM scale, they do not seem to have near as much pressure as the smaller fans. I understand why that is, but not sure if the lower pressure will make a difference in pushing air over the heat exchanger. That was one reason that I left room for two  
    • A guy would probably want to buy a back up canister, at that price you could buy a 5lb and save a couple bucks. 
    • I like both so I smoke for about 2 hours and finish in dehydrator.
    • will stay with this method. dont want to be filling that thing every night.  I have a dozen that I keep reusing . 
    • 20 pounder in my sled aint gonna happen. 
    • Been there done that. Not worth refilling. I'll stick to my 20 lbers!
    • https://www.menards.com/main/heating-cooling/propane-tanks/steel-1-lb-refillable-cylinder-with-refill-kit/ysn1lbkt/p-1491546053102.htm   Only $34.99 at Menards. That looks like the real ticket. Personally I would never re-fill those coleman 1 lbers. They aren't made for it and it seems dangerous to me. This kit comes with one refillable cylinder so you might need to buy one or two more but then they are supposedly good for 12 years. I think I might buy myself one for the holidays.
