Trying to decide between the deer stand and the duck blind for this weekend. Does anyone know what the bird and ice conditions are like in the 3rd river area of Lake Winnibigoshish? Sounds like all this cold weather is pushing the ducks down. I could really use one more hunt if it's possible. Anyone have any info for this area? Thanks in advance.

I was up doing some diver scouting for next week, hopefully all the other's will be rifle hunting. With the way the temps are, a guy is going to have to hunt the north side of the lake, as alot of slush ice is piling up in the Tamarack Point area. Today a buddy and I saw a flock that was probably 100-200 yards long and about 100 yards top to bottom, NO KIDDING!!!! It was an awesome sight, one that I will never, ever forget, they were flying near Tamarack Point. Most of the waterfowl we saw were around the Tamarack Point area, but impossible to hunt, as the shore ice 10-20 yards, is too thin and there's 30-50 yards of slush ice out from that and the birds are on the outer edge of the slush ice. The north shore or in Cutfoot will be your only choice. Hunt it soon, as there are definitely alot of birds up there.

Pelican Lake up by the Falls filled up today. I talked to a buddy who was hunting the north end and he said the sky was black with BIG white bellied BILLS. He thought there was 10,000 new ducks on the lake!!!!!!! I am leaving tomorrow early morning but I'm afraid we are going to lose the lake tonight or tomorrow night. Most of the small bays were tight already. According to Belinda Jensen, KARE 11 weather it is suppose to get down to 14 in the cities tonight and 8 thursday night, northern MN will be at least 5 degrees colder. I think we are going to be chas'in big open water. Big Winnie here we come? GOOD LUCK pounding the northerners this weekend fellas. Remember to be safe, you will not last long in the water at this point in the season!!!

I was on plughat point on winnie tues and there were alot of ducks we did good we landed at plughat landing but there was quite a bit of ice I dont know that you could get in there anymore with these cold temps. You could maybe get in at mosmo and boat out to the big lake. good luck I am heading to blackwater for the evening hunt tonight.

    • 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:      
    • Watch the two videos below and see what you think?  Wet land destruction or not?   I saw these clowns on Youtube and sent it in to the MN DNR and this was there reply and mind back to them.   May help to read the Wet land use description on the DNR web page as well.     Read bottom-up.     To: Vollbrecht, Brice (DNR) Cc: Seefeldt, Phillip (DNR)  "Well you are the experts paid to protect our wet lands.  If you didn’t see any objectional wet land damage in either of the two videos I forwarded.   Then I guess I must have been mistaken what wetland and Wild rice bed damaged must be?  Just a question if there registered to operate in a public water area, do they have to use a boat launch like every other water craft or just fly off through the reeds like they did in the video?  Keep doing a great job guys!  May be I buy one.  Thanks for your time.  Steve"          Sent from Mail for Windows From: Vollbrecht, Brice (DNR) Sent: Saturday, December 3, 2022 3:53 PM To: [email protected]tlook.com Cc: Seefeldt, Phillip (DNR) Subject: Sherp Complaint Steve: I got an email sent to me through the info center regarding a wetland complaint you had sent in about a year ago.  I also saw the email you attempt to send Captain Seefeldt.  Just wanted to let you know the Captain was not  ignoring you, it looks like you misspelled his name in the original email you sent.   This spring after the snow/ice melted and things started to green up, one of our enforcement pilots flew around the area where the farm is located.  The pilot was unable to locate any areas of concern where the Sherp may have caused damage to the wetland.  The pilot also flew over other wetland areas close to the farm, but did not observe any damage. The Sherp is dual registered which would allow it to operate in a public water area.  If the other wetland/lake where they drove down the road is private property we have not received any complaints from landowners down there for trespass.   I have included the Captain in this email.  If you have any further questions feel free to contact either one of us. Thank you Conservation Officer Brice Vollbrecht, Bemidji #1 Station MN DNR Enforcement (Cell)-218-760-1798
