    2020 Season stats

    When I was in my 20s I thought I shot well, but in reality I just had a lot of chances - especially waterfowl. I started shooting skeet and that worked its way to sporting clays. Shoot trap occassionally because my son was on a team, but that is my least favorite. The more I shot clays...

    Keys

    I believe some 2021 trucks will start using a cell phone to verify / allow the keyless start function to go... along with opening your doors. Not sure if that is a good thing or bad ... keep the phone dry enough to function I guess.

    Keys

    Front pants pocket. Get the Tile ... I have a tile on my truck key fob and my Garmin Astro lanyard. Can find from your phone if you are within the right distance (varies by model). Visa-versa you can push the button on your Tile and your cell phone sounds off. It has been a great...

    How About The Weirdest, Strangest Thing you've Seen/Experienced While Hunting?

    About a dozen years ago I was pheasant hunting on private land in the same general area of ND as the story above. I can over a slight ridge to a mowed grassy area next to a cattail filled creek ... only to find my Britt and a coyote squaring off ... they were actually circling about 20 feet...

    How About The Weirdest, Strangest Thing you've Seen/Experienced While Hunting?

    Well ... I will make this SFW. Buddy and I used to hunt birds out in west central ND. We stayed elsewhere, but our travels would bring us to a little town near the Big Lake. We would refuel, get snacks or have a late breakfast in the town. Over the course of 3 years we would ALWAYS...

    Rate your 2020 season

    With that scoring system in place I would rate it a 5 - 6 (so I guess for me it is inconsequential which number is high and which number is low). Middle ... not great, not bad. Untimely late October and early November snow was my main reason for scoring low. I love to hunt behind...

    Rate your 2020 season

    It is great to see so many people out ... Totally Disagree. Too many that lose all manners and ethics just because it is public land. MN DNR often equates hunting success by licenses sold and seems to care little (although they do survey) about quality of the hunts, etc...

    How About The Weirdest, Strangest Thing you've Seen/Experienced While Hunting?

    In my younger days we used to have bets and challenges on approaching these and opening up doors, trunks, etc... Always thought it would be fun to put on headlamps and walk through the bottom photo at night. Too tired from hunting, too scared, or too smart ... never did.

    Kansas Trespassing Fee for Private Land

    The issue swamp is that often long relationships with landowners where knowing the person and a Christmas card w/gift card, some special foods or drink at year end was enough. Outfitters can work into an area and even landowners that swore they would never fall into the trap sometimes do over...

    Kansas Trespassing Fee for Private Land

    Most interestingly ... In North Daktoa, it is the city (both large and small) representatives (both Democrats and Republicans) that often are the deciding vote in favor of more balanced (if not pro) legislation regarding issues for resident sportsman. These people need to be informed and aware...

    Kansas Trespassing Fee for Private Land

    Farm Bureau holds many hats ... it is a business (primarily insurance) ... but it is also a strong lobbying arm for the ag industry that is often at odds with most resident hunters interests. FB is engaged because some (and it might be a small, but vocal minority) landowners want to maximize $$...

    Kansas Trespassing Fee for Private Land

    KS nonresident waterfowl hunting is out of control because they flood into the limited public land areas. Excessive crowding has become the norm.
