7 1/2 days and counting...

All that is on my mind the past few weeks has been rifle opener. This next week is going to go by way too slow for this guy. I am already checked out of work and I need to kill another 4.5 workdays. Anyone else in the same boat? Good luck to everyone on being able to focus on work this next week. Wishing everyone a safe and successful season.

I'm definitely in the same boat. Mentally, I've already checked out of work. My boss doesn't want to give me next weekend off, but I finally persuaded him by telling him that The Future Hunter is due right around next weekend and wanted to hang around the house for when he gets here. The bossman couldn't argue with that so he gave me the time off. Mentally, I'm going crazy. Not good for those around me that don't have the addiction.

No I only have 3+ days, I took Thursday off too. Leaving for Ripley in about an hour. Went home to get a couple things I forgot at lunch time & saw a nice buck cruising about 12:30. Hopefully that's a good omen for the next couple of weeks with bow & gun.

ya know kingfisher, I have brothers in Woodbury, I live in Oakdale. And when I'm driving back to my house down Ideal late at night, between 10th and 15th, there's always a few deer in the ditch. They're moving all over Oakdale right now, it's really getting me revved up.

I can't leave until sat. afternoon. I will miss opener morning and my brother will probably sit in my stand and get a deer. On top of that, my rifle isn't back from the manufacturer yet. It had to be sent in for warranty work and of course, the store can't tell me when it will be back.

Boo hoo.

How do you think I feel living here? It's crazy. I have a 160 acre park behind my house and there's deer running around back there. It's really tempting some mornings to open up the sliding glass door and fill a doe tag with the bow. If only..........

Well Boys, the week is upon us. I have only been at work for a half hour, and my mind is already checked out. It is going to be a long week. The weekend forcast looks like it will be a little warmer than ideal. Hopefully the further north I head, the temps will be affected. I am hoping for at least frosty morning hunts.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
