Your starting out with a good thought as one wants to make sure you have fun and to not put so much importance on the kill.

Good luck this fall and remember it will happen.

As a first time bowhunter, don't set your goals too high as in 'it has to be an eight point or better'. Shoot a nice doe if she comes by, you need the practice drawing back without getting seen, fighting the adrenelin rush, shooting, and tracking a few deer, so when Mr. Big walks out some day you can calmly take your shot.

Last year was the 1st time for me. When you see a deer what a rush. Just being out there is so awsome. Then when one comes within shooting range WOW shocked.gif What a heart pounding experience. I shot a small 8 pointer. The deer went 10 feet and fell over. laugh.gif I was hooked from that point on. This year I'll probably have to track one.

Good luck.

I picked up bowhunting last fall. I love it....

Plus, I like the long season. You get to see so much out there in the woods. I did not arrow a deer last year, but learned a ton. I have a BioLogic food plot right this year, and the deer are hammering it now. I can't wait to get out to the stand.

Good luck all-

If you're like me as this week winds down it'll be changing the drool soaked shirt once a day, then twice, & so on until Saturday morning. Good luck!

My wife so far hasn't gotten too sick of me walking around the house with that far off look in my eye while exclaiming, It's fall...

like i said im already hooked on the sport and the challenge. my primary reason was to avoid the gang rush of hunters on public land during rifle season. I never thought it would be this fun.

6:51 AM sunrise and 7:25 PM sunset.

Go out to the DNR website and look at the regulations online, just print out the sunrise/sunset table. I keep a copy in my dayplanner. It will also show you the lines where you need to add or subtract 4 minutes according to where in MN you're hunting.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
