WAKING UP!!!

11 posts in this topic

Okay ever since I started this wonderful stressful thing called college and life on your own I just cannot wake up! Every morning my traditon is wake up for a mornign bowhunt and half the time I sit up but everytime the alarms get shut off and I pass back out. Ive got three am bowhunts so far. This week will be better but whats the best way to get awake fast and actaully get motivated to leave the warm bed and comfort knowing ill be lucky to see a deer?! This has been goign on for 2 yrs now. I hunt big woods so its not like im seeing enough deer or big bucks to get me up and I sleep easy in stands. I dont have any problems waking for school or duck hunting!

Find a deer calendar, and put in on the wall next you your alarm clock so you look at it when you shut your clock off. That'll get you going!

The rut is almost on!

If that can't get you up, nothing can!

I like the phrase someone else had on here, "You can sleep when your dead. Now its time to hunt!"

what ozzie said. I too am in college and occasionally have a similar problem, mine is that i hit the snooze button and end up getting out to the big woods about ten minutes later than i wanted to. I sometimes also get my self really pscyed the night before, thinking, i have an awsome spot to sit and there is no reason i should be sleeping in.

Boys, just something to consider. Right now you have 4-6 years where you can party, chase, and generally screw around. You will probably have the next 30-40 for hunting. Do the math. Hunt when you can, but enjoy every minute of college, it will be over before you know it. I still hunted as much as possible, but enjoyed myself thoroughly at college. Die hard hunters might think differently, but now I hunt plenty and wish that sometimes I could go out to a college party and get a little nuts again. Enjoy college, it doesn't last long. grin.gif

try the old native american trick, before you go to bed, drink 1-2 quarts of water, then in the morning you will be ready to get up because your bladder is full. I do that all the time when I need to get up early in the morning. Also, once you are married and have kids, you will discover that you will be out the door before that alarm goes off, just make sure you turn the alarm off or the bride will git ya

set the clock an hour earlier and you can hit the snooze button a few times and still get up on time.

grow a pair of balls and just get up lol

what i do is have everything ready the night before so i don't have to do anything when i'm tired and lazy...just make sure when the alarm goes off to shut it off and get directly up...don't roll back over for a few minutes...them few minutes turn into an hour quick!

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
