Stealing game?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever had a problem with someone trying to take there game before? We had a problem yesterday morning. While hunting(there were 3 of us)we called in a pair of geese. We had them infront of us and then they rolled for some reason. They were about 35 yards out and I drilled the fist one with my first shot. The other guy in my boat hit the other one with the first shot. I hit it with my second and third shot and my buddy hit it again with his third shot. We knew it was hit and hit hard. We watched it and it went down about 150-175 yards behind us. We were hunting a island of weeds and I could see it laying out there. I was toast. Our other buddy wanted to take is new pup lab over to get it so he was working on getting out of his blind when I heard this motor start up and it was along ways away. As our guy is push pulling out and around the island(could not run the motor to much coons tail in the water!) these kids come up from the south east and are going to pick this goose us. Now it has only been about 2 min since we shot it. They saw my buddy going to get the goose and it almost turned into a race to see who could get first. I was watching from the blind and was really upset. Finally the kids stopped and my buddy's dog was sent to the goose but it was to big for him and my buddy went over to get the goose from the dog and get the dog. The kids then turned around and drove back to the south west.
I am just wondering if this has ever happend to anyone else? The funny part is the geese came in from the north east and never went over these guys or were even close to going over these guys to make them think that it might be theres!

Sorry about venting so much I was just really upset. By the way. Never made it out early season goose hunting and rarely ever shoot geese on opener but we only got 7 ducks for 3 of us on opening weekend but we did get our limit of geese each day. The bonus was the first shot by my buddy with his new gun and new pup he got a bwt and his pup made the retreve and it was banded! We also got a young drake mallard and he was banded in South Carolina. I also got my first banded goose yesterday. Banded in 97.

Maybe they thought you did not see it go down and they were only going to pick it up and bring it to you.

I wouldnt assume that they were trying to steal unless they put it in their boat and drove away.

Good luck with the rest of the season.

Normally I would agree with you but then did not even care that my buddy was coming out to get it. They saw him coming right after he got around the island but they did not stop coming till he sent his dog out. I just was very upset. Just my thoughts.

Hope you have a great season!

On time we shot down a couple geese, the guy down from us also got one as they passed by. It was a pretty windy day and the one he got started floating across the lake we where on. After a while, the guy got out and said that he better get it before it gets across the lake. About 45 mins later he comes back and tells us a couple of younger kids got out and grabbed it right in front of him... Well, he said he did not want to get into an argument, being that they were both armed, so he did not say anything... I guess, my thought is, why would you want to eat a dead bird that you do not know how long its been down?

    • 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] 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
