My list is short: slug barrel, slugs, chair, headlamp, coverall, warm boots. Of course I never unpack my 'trip bag' - a pet peeve of my wife - which contains underware, socks, reading material, lounge clothes, shaving kit. And the cooler and beer are already loaded!!!

I feel ya knockin BLACKJACK! It's not a shaving kit, it's a "medicine cabinet"!

I forgot to mention that every list should include Tums/Rolaids and Immodium. Nothing ruins a good time like heartburn, acid reflux in the stand, or "the trots".

Good luck and be safe.

I knew I forgot something, that must be why we didn't get a deer this weekend. Next time, I'll put Buck on the list. I hunt southern minnesota, do you think it would be pushing it, to put "snow" on the list?

You know, I plumb forgot to add deer to my list, too. Explains a lot. I just got out my list from last Friday and added "typical 12-point buck with B&C green score of 266 1/2."

I wonder if it will work this many days after opener. Nah, who am I kidding? crazy.gif

just a 266 12-point typical huh? Is that all?

I'd just like to get my son one. I have had an opportunity to shoot a trophy 3 years in a row... and he has yet to see a buck... well, no, he saw one with half a rack.

The kid sat in his blind from 6 am to 6:23 pm on Saturday. I was so proud of him. And he jumped right out of bed on sunday as well. It's hard for anyone to sit for 12 hours. I was very very proud of him. But he had nothing to show for it : (.

Hey man, when a guy makes a list, why not put a record on it? grin.gif

With a work ethic like that, your boy will have his deer sooner or later. The wait will make the kill all the sweeter. Sounds like he's got a ton of patience. I know quite a few grown men who can't do what he did. grin.gif

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
