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

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      I think it will be alright but i would be lying if i said i wasnt thinking what to do myself.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
