I see your point, why all the sudden .08 for the content. it was always .10 not a big differance except for more money for the state. I would assume the death ratio between seatbelts and drunks is pretty close. maybe Im wrong thier to sorry

The sheriff's dept in my area was specifically told to target pick-up trucks with NASCAR and other racing stickers for stops and DWI arrests.

I was thinking the same thing when I read that. Yes dan z, the state would have lost federal highway funding if they didn't drop the limit to .08, but .08 is still impaired and shouldn't be on the road even when it was "legal".

"The sheriff's dept in my area was specifically told to target pick-up trucks with NASCAR and other racing stickers for stops and DWI arrests."

Unless you heard this from someone in the sherfiff's dept. yourself, don't post something like this. I live in the brainerd area, know an abundance of officers that work their tail off and are honest as the day is long. Garbage like this that "somebody heard" hurts them and is [PoorWordUsage]! Report facts not hearsay.

One person that works in the office, one person that works in the field. It doesnt get more specific that that.

I dont see how this is dishonest. A very good % of people with NASCAR/local racing stickers on domestic pick-ups with dual outs driving around after dark on the weekend are probably under the influence. They noticed a trend in arrests and capitalized on their success.

Im not saying I agree with profiling like this, but from their standpoint it makes alot of sense. I myself dont believe the govt's standard for being intoxicated while driving is fair.

Good for them!!! I hope they stoped a tragedy from occuring to someone going home from the event and getting injured or killed. Bottom line, they were doing thier job. I can not fault anyone for that.

To comment on the pickups thing.... The police play the percentages. An officer I know well will pull over people with Ice Fishing equipment because he drinks when he fishes so he feels a good percentage of others do as well. We all profile, to givee someone a hard time about it would be silly....

Then this is a dishonest policy. If they have steadfast research that shows something that with the "Nascar" crowd then fine. But, in the absence of such research then they are stereotyping and that gets cops in trouble, or it should. There is a HUGE difference between profiling, research based, and stereotyping, hearsay based; one should be used to get drunk drivers off the road and the other has no place in society.

How do you know for a fact that the Sheriff's dept was told this?

The statement that a very good % of people with stickers out driving around is really a stretch. I know many people that go up and don't drink and yes, some do.

I find it hard to believe that the police would talk about this with the public before they did this.

Profiling, I would guess so, if it happenend

Well its not really talking with the public, it was an exchange between a person and the other person. Its not even close to the worse thing Ive heard or seen, just something related to what was being discussed.

If youre a cop driving around at 2am saturday night...who would you most likely stop if you witnessed a buick and a 96 chevy shortbox with loud dual outs and a #3 sticker both speeding?

The Buick, old people are funny and I might get a laugh. Don't mess with the 3!

333 vehicles stopped.

517 violations/warnings.

Banner day for the State Patrol.

Aside from the 12 DWI arrests, there were 502 petty nuisances.

Brainerd crime statistics are above the national average for:

Overall crime.

Burglaries.

Aggravated assaults.

Rape.

Larceny/thefts.

Property crimes.

Why can't Minnesota law enforcement concentrate on fighting real crime ??

Guess I better get that #17 sticker off my rear bumper.

Who cares if they profile, the bigger issue is that they need to show cause for pulling over a vehicle. They can't pull you over for having a NASCAR sticker. They can watch you more closely.

Look - I've been to a NASCAR race before and there is a ton of drinking. There was a ton of drinking at Slinger Speedway near where I grew up. I have no problems with the cops watching events more closely just to make sure that the public is safe. They do the same thing after Vikings games and I hope that they continue to keep the roads safe.

I could be really really specific, but I dont want to sell anyone out.

Cops can and will pull over anyone they want. I mean, it always comes down to your words vs. theirs. If they said you crossed the center line, then there isnt much you can do about it, really.

    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss       yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee cookers thanks.  😘  
    • what type of lenses? glass?
    • About 10 years ago I bought a boat that I had to track down a person that was not who I bought the boat from as they owned it many years before that!!!  But I am sure that I got the owners name from the DMV to then track down and had her sign a form, brought back to DMV, and then put into my name.  I am guessing things have changed as to how to get the name, but sounds silly to have to write a letter to get information that they could use proper discretion to give it to you or not.  Good Luck!
    • Traegers are super over-rated and over-priced for what they are. I would rather buy that big horn up above than a Traeger.    I'm fairly certain that Big Horn is just a Pit Boss. Louisiana smokers makes Pit Boss and a bunch of other stuff that other's put their own name on including PF's Cabela's model. I have a small Pit Boss that I am going to use for camping and I like it just fine. I bought that one from a friend for $50 but I'm sure that's still too much for Leech......
    • ok so story time...the one that got away but saw the fish.  I was ice fishing on Red when the eye fishing was still closed and we went out for an early season excursion about a mile out of Westwind.  It was Saturday evening when I my bobber shot down and the fight was on.  Now we were only in probably 5-7 ft of water if that but I "tired" the fish out where I was able to get it directly under the hole and all we could see was a monster northern head filling up the hole!!  No one would put there hand near that thing, let alone blindly through 2.5 ft of ice, so we just watched it for a minute or two float beneath the hole until I tried to turn it up the hole and the line just snapped when he decided he had had enough!!  That was painful not to touch but seeing it and knowing it was all of 44"+ was better than wondering.   Now to the not seen...Ice fishing Waukanabo by Leech in the deep hole on the north end and I see a mark on the bottom and I hook into it and could not budge it off the bottom.  I sat there for a few minutes with rod bent over trying to lift it with nothing but my line slowly moving away until pop it spit my lure!!!  I think the hole is over 40' deep and with 4lb test mono I guess as much as I applied pressure the hook wasn't in!!    What could have been~ so those are two stories that stick out in my mind and of the 2 the second stings more as I have no clue what it could have been and that runs through my mind but the northern as cool as it would have been to touch measure and what not, to see it and to know how massive it was, makes it "easier" to deal with. 
    • Sorry for the delayed response.    Checked in at the Lac Seul Resort on Wednesday, June 6, and checked out on Monday, June 11. Anticipating our usual needs, I preordered 200 dozen minnows and a pound of leeches from KA Sports & Tackle in Dryden for 10 guys to fish for 4-1/2 days.    This was the first time in 20 years that we actually had bait left over at the end. I gave away about 30 dozen minnows to a neighboring cabin because they didn't have any.    We found the morning bite to be slow for some reason but the evening bite was better. Most activity was found in moving water on the English River. On Friday evening another guy and myself went to Pelican Rapids and from 6:00pm till about 9:30pm we figured we boated over 200 walleyes and a few northnerns. Unfortunately, they were all between 15" - 17" in length and we were looking for the 17" - 18" size for the freezer. That's always our goal for fish we intend to take home.    The following night we went back and although the fish weren't biting quite as fast they were larger. Over the same time frame we figured we only boated about 100 walleyes but the size ranged more in the 17" - 22" size.    Overall we had a few walleyes caught in the 25" - 28" range with the largest of the week at 28.25". Northern pike were active with many caught in the 31" - 34" range. Didn't boat any in the 40" range as we usually do but those lower 30-inchers sure put up a fight.    Also found a few nice smallies and whitefish as usual.    Most fish were found in the 10' - 14' depth range, which was unusual compared to previous years when we caught them in shallow water along the shorelines.    Great weather with steady winds out of the southerly directions, which is what we always hope for but never get and nobody got hurt. Another successful year for us.
    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it. 
    • I stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
