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.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
