Please Read: Natural Resources Need Your Help!

Recommended Posts

How come the PETA/Disney post gets more responses than the 3/16 post? Have you been paying attention to the news and outdoors sections recently? The 3/16 initiative has some real steam going this year, but it needs your help. Please click on the link below and find out who your reps are and send them an e-mail asking for their support. PLEASE! It only takes a few moments.

If you need more info, check out the Minnesota Game & Fish Coalition or the Minnesota Outdoor Heritage Association. There are two articles in the latest Outdoor News regarding the issue as well.

Way to keep things in perspective GJ. Support the local landscape. Who cares about PETA and disney. You think they will have any kind of effect in MN, the land of 10,000 lakes, the state where boat registrations outnumber residents 2:1

I wrote my congressman and senator in support of the 3/16 bill.

Stable funding is essential if real progress in terms of protecting and improving our natural resources is ever going to get done in this state. I think the problem with a lack of response to this issue is that most people reading this feel that they don't have the time to get involved in politics, well guys, that's exactly why we are in the shape we are in. The people that are elected to represent us can only make a decision based on what they hear from their constituents. Please take the time to let your local politicians know how you feel on this. It only takes a few minutes to send them an email and if you don't know who to write to, just go to the link provided and fill in your address. A screen will pop up giving you all the information you will need. If you're not familiar with all the 3/16's or 4/16's jargon just go to the outdoors section of the Star Tribune, MN Outdoors Weekly, or Outdoor News HSOforum and you should be able to get enough information to make a decision. All this comes down to is politics, and whether you like it or not, all of us have a responsibility to make our voice heard. This issue, out of all the other issues that our lawmakers will face this session, deserves the chance to be voted upon by the people of Minnesota. Please answer the call to get involved by letting your local reps know how you feel.

I care about PETA, and you should too, whether or not it's involved in something you don't like.

Check out the latest Outdoor News. The editor is asking all of us to do what I have been encouraging in my posts. Write to your reps and make sure they know you want them to support the 3/16 initiative. Click on the link at the top of this topic to find your reps. It's easy and takes little time. Thanks!

    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
    • Very nice. You need to start making Youtube fishing videos with them now like #fish_time does with his kids!  😀 You can tell their fishing with Dad and not Mom.  Did you help your daughter with her boots Dad? 😄
    • Had a couple hours, so I brought my 2 younger kids out to enjoy the nice afternoon. River is a little high yet, but still pretty cloudy. I guess it was flooded pretty good yesterday. Rain must have washed in lots of food, because every trout had a big fat belly. I caught 5, and my son caught 1 (all browns). All of them on a largemouth bass colored husky jerk, which is my new favorite trout lure. Me and the kids finished the day covered in mud, and had a great time!    
    • Seeing whats working for everyone using decoys for mn. opener. My new whiteface DSD jake had 2 toms come in for my 10 year old grandson, Jeffrey. Whats working for everyone else? When using hen/jens only decoys, how do you set them and what do you use etc. Like upright and feeder???? Just seeing.
