It’s That Time of Year Again

2 posts in this topic

This will be my first year hunting with a recurve so I’ve been practicing as frequently as I can; usually three or four times a week. So this morning I’m going through the routine and am shooting pretty well.

Draw, anchor, visualize, release.

Draw, anchor, visualize, release.

Draw, anchor, visualize, release.

Draw, anchor, Geese; did I hear geese, release… Ping!

I shot way left and squarely hit the steal pole that the bales are lashed to. There is now a three inch crack down the shaft of a brand new Gold Tip… smooth, real smooth.

Month and a half away from the first open hunting season and I already can’t stay focused on a task… it’s going to be a long six weeks.

I believe that it doesnt matter who you are, a shot can go wrong from time to time.

Sometimes we just make a mistake. I try to not take more than 10 shots when I practice. I find that when I take those 40-50 shot sessions that towards the end my grouping is never as tight as my first ten.

Keep at it and you will be fine.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
