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.

Sounds like your rut is going on right now, more so than the deer!

LOL, I had to take the crack at this thread! grin.gif

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!

      Much appreciated JBMasterAngler! I saw a couple of your comments on another DevilsTrack lake post, but that was from 2007 so this updated information is AWESOME !! LOL! Thank you! I am looking forward to giving it a go.    I have a bunch of chartreuse  and fire tiger rapalas too. Got a couple that dive to 16 feet, and couple to around 7. Hopefully i can locate a couple eater walleye. thanks again man.

      Beanies is a privately held beach and company. There is no way they would become a free public launch site--unless they sold to the DNR. I know nothing of that happening. However, if you're patient, the DNR is building one under the new HWY 36 bridge with 35 trailer parking spots to be completed in late fall 2019/early spring 2020. Here's the article: http://stillwatergazette.com/2017/03/20/dnr-plans-boat-launch-next-to-st-croix-bridge/. As for fishing, right now with the hot weather and the recent mayfly hatch, it's been a tough bite. Fish drop-offs or channels and try everything.

      Those islands are a good starting point. The mouth of the junco creek  (which is right at the campground) is a popular spot also. Gold is the go to color. Lake is full of cigars, but you should be able to find a few big enough to eat. Shorefishing at the access at night can be productive with leeches, but it's always those pesky cigars again. You might want to take a day and go over to nearby Two Island Lake. Has a much better population of eaters in my opinion.

      Wondering if there are any free campsites in the Ely area, preferably off of fernberg trail or hwy 1 within reasonable distance of town. I know there are a thousand sites on islands or lake shores that are "boat to", but I'm looking for drive to sites. Being on or near a lake would be nice, but I'm not too picky. Just looking to make a trip a little more affordable, as well as getting a chance to explore the area a little better

      Somebody needs to find out where it happened and start throwing some big baits in that area.

      No problems today with Chrome, so it must be fixed.

      Without seeing the bottom of the foot, I have the same thoughts.   Sure could be a propeller hit though.

      Was up for the weekend with the family and got out a little bit. Fished for about 2 hours in the morning and evening each day started out great on Friday nailing a 24" first fish but but over all fishing was slow for me. Saturday I zeroed but switched to spinner rigs w crawlers  Sunday and got into some nicer walleyes all 16 to 22" fish 1 mph perch colored spinners with the hammered looked to them with orange and green beads on a sand to rock transition. Sure was marking a ton of bait fish on the screen it looks like the lake is loaded right now.  How did everyone else do?

      We usually go with 3/8 or 1/2 ounce jigs on the US side due to depth and current.  I do not know if these sizes help avoid snags.
