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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
