Neighbor stopped by and mentioned an article in OD News said the final deal for next season is on the gov's desk waiting for signing. Anybody have a link to put our last minute input into his final decision. I'm thinking we need to voice out how this will hit them in the wallet to get some notice. Hope someone has link handy or has time to research.. busy entertaining for the Wild game( go MN, yah rodents ). If not, that is my project tommorrow and I will try my darndest to find a direct link.

Bryce...read an article a couple months ago in the ODN and No Dak did their own study and they're going to justify this through the results of that study. It states that the non-res. brings in (I don't remember the exact amount stated) like 20% of the hunting money for the state. The way they twisted the findings was by incl. all hunting clothing, guns etc. res. buy and non-res. don't, they deducted the license amounts and if you purchased your license over the phone or e-mail and not from a retail vendor in the state, they didn't count the amount they make for issueing the license. They came up with a formula for motel stays, and they said meals were a wash. I'm afraid all our statements will fall on deaf ears up there! Nobody thinks MN playing the game of jack the non-res. is a good idea, but I say raise the fishing license fees for non-res. to $75.00 and limit them to 2 five day periods and no family license privledges. all fishing members must have their own license! You can buy more than one license per year for all those that have bought a cabin in our fine state. I was thinking reciprocity with WI but I just found out they're going to raise their non-res. deer tag to $160.00, so nope...hit them too! Maybe this will help the DNR's budget problem! Good Luck!

Labs, hope your boy is doing well.
Heres my input on the ND deal.
I dont think anything said now is going to change anything, this has been going on for sometime now and there were like 100 to 1 yehs to nahs on this bill in house and senate,
(not the exact numbers but close enough)

Like labs said, they have crunched all kinds of numbers on the NR money coming in to the state, and its not enough to make any difference to them, is what I see the bottem line being.
I guess I could go on and on but I'm already starting to sound like I dont know what I'm talking about, heh, heh.

I know , it sucks, they raised most of their fees, even NR fishing license fees, HEH, had to laugh at that one, oh well, DL is o.k. I guess.
The main concern has been land access, and the other seems to be the use guides and
I dont see this bill helping out limiting the use of guides, I actually see it INcreasing,
if the hunt is limited to 10 days, most will want a quality hunt for their time and money.
The freelance hunters are screwed unless they have some private land access.
If I decide to go, I already have a guide service picked out myself, but I also plan on hunting MN this year, as I haven't for so many years and it sounds like things have gotten better further south.
Had to come back to add this, that I'm talking about the pheasant hunting, thought I was in that part of the forum, heh, heh, goofy sucker eh?

So this deal really sucks, having a place like ND where I could hunt pheasants and ducks on the same trip, get out hunting pheasants 3-4 weekends, was awesome. Now it will cost double that? That sucks. Maybe it's back to SD for pheasnt hunting.

All I have to say is IOWA, there out of state fees are lower and the northwest side of the state has some decent waterfowl hunting, pheasant hunting was very good there for me last year.

    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!    
    • Can't stand the guy and don't watch his craap!  I was watching videos on the Sherp vehicle which is pretty cool and these two popped up.  When I saw them mowing over Wild rice beds it [PoorWordUsage]ed me off and got me to send it in to the DNR.  
    • ahh good old whistlindiesel, your just part of the click bait generating even more revenue for him now   love him or hate him he sure knows how to generate some buzz   Also he was already on the Mn DNR $hitlist for this and ticketed see below:
