New Hunter - Some help please.....

6 posts in this topic

I'm new to hunting, just went my first time ever yesterday. I have a couple of buddies I met on this sight for fishing that are taking me hunting. Kingfisher and I hit Carlos Avery yesters. Wow!!!! I'm new but I know better than to shoot at birds 100 yards in the air. It was rediculous. Had a hunter pulling the trigger at a bird and shot right over my head from 20 yards away. I was more than PO'd after that happened. Anyway, can anyone give any ideas of other places to try around the metro or within and hour or so that would be good to try out? I don't need a honey hole for birds, just would like to get a few on an outing. If you don't want to post it here you can email me at s_e_hendricks@comcast.net. Also, if you're ever up to taking a newbie out let me know.

Kingfisher took me out last weekend and we didn't get a duck in close enough. Yesterday I went out with Matty, nice to meet you by the way, and we got 3 in close. My shooting isn't there yet and I missed, but it was fun getting some in close. Thanks for taking me out guys, I look forward to more hunting.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
