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.

      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.
