Mr. Boehr, Is it leagal to drink beer while ice fishing in your shanty? For instance, if you have only one beer with you in a shanty and thats ALL and a CO stops by to check you, are you legal with that one can of beer in your shanty?

Not to take this thread down a tangent, but when I was in college (Michigan Tech) a couple of idiots came up with the bright idea of putting a keg in the back of their truck. Packed it with snow, then ran the hose on the tap up through the split window.

They figured that since the keg was in the back of the truck, they'd found a little loophole around "opened container" laws. (Not sure what they were drinking out of in the truck or if they were just sucking off the tap...)

As you'd expect, local law enforcement up there spends 90% of their time dealing with alcohol related problems and doesn't have much patience for idiots. They got to spend a weekend in jail, probably made nice donation of beer to the local PD, and were well known in the dorms for their escapades. They probably would've been famous forever if one of their frat brothers didn't try to elude the police for a drunk and disorderly arrest AFTER they had the handcuffs on him.

I don't know about you. I just rent my beer! Where do you put yours when you are finished with it? With all the MTs out there, people don't seem to put it back in the can.:p

Is it legal to urinate on/in public waters?

Not me! I already mastered the beer drinking part but I can't catch fish though the ice. I wonder if the two are related.:eek: :p
