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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
