FARMERS INDEPENDENT BAGLEY, Wednesday April 10, 2002 by Mike Rahn Anglers and hunters are governed by a myriad of rules and regulations. A quick look at this year's fishing regulations synopsis, or last fall's hunting rules, will confirm that. Some of what is contained within those pages is determined at the administrative level, within the Minnesota Department of Natural resources (DNR). But most, in some way or another, were crafted or began life as a provision in a bill that was passed by a collection of state legislators and signed by a Minnesota governor. That makes what goes on in St. Paul extremely important to you and me and all other state anglers and hunters. Here are a few reflections on legislation that is either pending, or which -- in this session or the next - may be considered and could become law. The Fish & Game Hog Bill: One of the bills that died in the legislature last year, but is back, has passed and is awaiting the governor's signature, is a bill that would more severely penalize what are termed "gross overlimits" of fish or game. There have, for example, been past cases of anglers being caught with several hundred crappies, when their combined limit was only 45. Historically, overlimits have typically been a misdemeanor. Last year's legislation would have made such behavior a felony. It was seen as too harsh by many lawmakers, and did not pass. This year the legislation has been modified to ,- make certain overlimits a gross misdemeanor. Gross fishing violations would not, for example, necessarily carry with them the loss of the angler's vehicle, but would allow the seizure and forfeiture of boats, motors and trailers; hopefully a substantial disincentive for some who are tempted to ignore the law. The legislation would also specify a restitution value for each fish or game animal, to be paid in addition to a judge's fine handed out at trial. For example, a panfish over four inches in length might carry with it a restitution value of $10, certain ducks $100. It's time to treat overlimits of game and fish like the public theft they are, and a bill like this one is a good start. Deer feeding, baiting: The DNR is considering toughening the laws on feeding wild game, in an attempt to squelch the growing practice of deer baiting. In states where the practice is legal, it has -- in the opinion of many -- made a farce of the concept of fair chase. Even here in Minnesota, some claim to be feeding other animals, when in fact they are merely trying to sidestep the law and make it easier to harvest a deer. Another downside of feeding, whether it is intended to bait deer for the purpose of shooting, or just to create opportunities to see deer, is that it concentrates deer unnaturally. This not only makes them more susceptible to predation, but to disease as well. With the growing threat of chronic wasting disease (CWD) m states to the east. south and west of Minnesota. any human behaviors that concentrate deer are potentially dangerous.

All entries must be postmarked by April 20 to be'entoed into the contest. feeding that often alters natural deer behavior makes sense. It will not solve the concentration problems that exist in the suburbs or "'exurbs" of some large communities. But legislation or regulations that restrict feeding could address the ethical problem of hunters taking advantage of deer, and could have a di.,~e.ase suppression effect over the whitetairs natural range in greater Minnesota. Robotic ducks: The Minnesota DNR has backed off its initial plans to try to regulate motorized, spinning-wing duck decoys in the state. But one northern lawmaker, Sen. Doug Johnson of Tower, wants to add a provision to the omnibus game and fish bill that would ban the use of these decoys. Johnson, who has also proposed bans or greater restrictions on the use of such technological aids as underwater cameras by anglers, calls the motorized decoy a threat to traditional hunting values. I happen to agree with him on the decoys, in part because of testimony from successful users, and in general due to a belief that it is a back-door way of getting around the existing ban on using live decoys. One can't even legally use a recording of live duck calling for waterfowl hunting. It was only a matter of time before some inventive soul gave an artificial duck the critical element of attraction that would make wild birds more susceptible to being attracted. To many, the spinning wing decoy seems to be just that. 1 admit to certain personal prejudicrs. This one is among them. My philosophy is simple: if you have to ask yourself if it is ethical, there is a good chance that it may not be. ATV legislation: It looks like there will be some degree of regulation of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) coming out of this session of the Minnesota Legislature. The Senate and House have both passed bills that would create restrictions, but the bills differ significantly. The Senate version would set a target of 2,000 miles of managed ATV trails, eventually establish a policy of "closed-unless-posted-open" for trails on state lands, and ban cross-country (off-trail) travel on state lands. The House has passed a more liberal bill. It would ban off-trail travel in all state forests, authorize more spending to develop more trails and improve enforcement, but would allow ATV use on some 6,000 "'informar' trails in state forests. The ATV industry and its supporters pushed for the House version, while those wanting tougher controls preferred the Senate version. The state chapter of the Audubon Society, an environmental group, supported the House version because it wanted some legislation with off-trail restrictions to be enacted this session, and did not believe the House would pass tougher legislation. Complicating rrfatters is the fact that the Senate version is contained in the Senate's omnibus game and fish bill, while the House has passed the omnibus bill without the ATV provisions. There will have to be a process known as "conferencing" to try to iron out the differences. If you opinion, now is the time to express it to your state senator or representative. e t ,e Am by Coach Doug Carlson The Little Amik meet at Bemidji State University was split into two meets this year. There was one held on Tuesday with 10 schools competing, while we attended the Thursday meet where 23 schools participated. We had everyone compete in this meet. Some of the junior high kids were able to compete as well. The boys team finished fifth and the girls team was 10th. In the boys meet we had two personal best marks set. Jerry Netland won the shot put with a throw of 48'9" and Matt Huschle won the long jump with a jump of 20'3- 3/4". Another first place finish was recorded by the 4x8OO relay (Justin Nelson, Jordan Hanlon, John Hendrickson, Dustin Lillegaard) in a time of 8:51.82. Justin Nelson placed third in the 800m in a time of 2:10.22, and Matt Huschle was also third in the high jump with a height of 5'6". Matt Arnold in the 200m (25.1) and Aaron Melander in the triple jump (33'11") placed eighth. On the girls side we had Becky Netland place second in the shot put (34'3-1/2"); the 4x200 relay (Tarah Grabill, Leah Grabill, Krista Vorderbruggen, Katie Fredrickson) was third with a time of 1:57.05; Nikki Martine was fourth in the 100m high hurdles (9.69); and Leah Grabill (200m 28.27), Katie Fredrickson (high jump 4'8") and Ashley Gravalin (pole vault 7') all placed sixth.
