Where do you Bow Hunt??

19 posts in this topic

Just wondering where everyone is hunting?? I hunt in Columbus Township where I live. It is just north of Lino Lakes and West of Forest Lake.

Anyone else in the area??

Yes, I am in the area. Just East of you between Forest Lake and Wyoming. How are things by you. I am seeing some, but not like I hope to as the weather cools and the leaves drop. Not hunting this weekend either, so far just scouting. Are you on private land or public? I am on private. Best wishes.

I'm hunting private land. I live on the land and know there is a ton of deer around. On the off season I do not spend anytime in the woods, maybe a walk here and there. This evening will be my first hunt as I had to work this morning. Still stuck here and growing impatient! Want to get out. My opening day stand is in an interesting spot and i'm anxious to see what I see.

I hear you. I am at work also. I work 3x12, 7am - 7pm Fri/Sat/Sun. It kills the weekends, but I LOVE the 4 days a week off. Sounds like you may have a similar setup, or you drew the short straw and had to work a Sat too smile.gif . Openers like this are hard to sit by and wait out. Oh well, a long season and I enjoy the mid October hunts more anyway. I also hunt the land I live on so my scouting is minimal, but I do walk the woods to see whats out there. Doesn't really change much year to year, so I know what to expect, usually.

Minnesota. NOt being sarcastic hear but I like to try new locations. Went duck hunting in Appleton area one year and came across a good looking public spot for dear. I was there the next weekend with the bow. Generally speaking I hunt primarily in the Albany, Motley, Staples and Oylen areas of the state.

Southeast Minnesota near Frontenac, where I grew up. Been hunting the same area for over 25 years.

I'd like to find something a little closer to home. 50 miles round trip at $3 per gallon of gas is a little too far for those quickie afternoon hunts, and the distance sometimes keeps me home when I should be out hunting.

If anyone has room for one more guy in the Mazeppa/Zumbro Falls/Pine Island/Oronoco area, drop me a line.

What's Pat's & where is it? I hunt mostly around the Long Prairie area in MN, but hunt a couple of weekends with my brother-in-law around Whitehall, WI.

Almost forgot, all private land.

I also hunt private land in Columbus City, it is no longer a township it was incorporated last year, ( I had no idea either ). Opening evening I a few deer, and took a doe. I also hunt public/private in Lino, Hugo, Becker, Cambridge and I might try Oak Grove and Sandstone sometime during this season.

Lucia, you should get in touch with me, we might be able to help each other out. my email is ZDMILLER@stthomas.edu. Shoot me an email if you are interested.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
