Traditions

5 posts in this topic

Well what are some of your traditions? I have one that we have had for years... It's meat loaf tonight for supper and meat loaf sandwiches in the blind tomorrow. That has been a long standing tradition. And this year, for only the second year my son and I will take our hunting buckets and go sit and watch the sunrise with dad at the cemetery. Miss ya and love ya dad. Will be the first year that little black dog is not along on opener to frown.gif Good luck to all tomorrow. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Sorry to hear about your dad and dog, duckslayer.

Our crew has a tradition before every opener. Beer, booze, and BS out by the campfire the night before and after the days hunt. Lots of story telling by the old guys about how they shoot all the birds but give the kids credit. Then I have to remind them how I win everytime we have a clay shooting contest. grin.gif

Our is leaving early Friday afternoon to head down to the Marshall area (And I'm still at work because of a stupid wedding tomorrow. mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif). Having some beers and booze and BS'ing most of the night with the same group of guys at the same place every year, and then getting up at 4am to head out to the slew.

This is the first time in 7 years I wont be making it....not counting a few years ago when I missed opener due to a broken ankle I sustained while wrestling at a golf tournament a two weeks before opener. That fall was no fun!

Thanks Ely. There was a time when I would not sleep at all tonight. Now it is just not the same. Don't get me wrong I still love duck hunting it is just somehow not the same. Maybe there will be some new traditions in the future that will make it that exciting again. Heard from young son tonight and he has to work tomorrow so I will be on my own. If ya see a guy pull up in a gold coloured S10 Jimmy at Oak Leaf lake tomorrow that will be me... stop by and have a cuppa coffee. Good luck guys! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.
