3D.. Anybody shooting any Leagues this winter?

Recommended Posts

Deitz Dittrich

I know its a little early.. but pulled the target bow out of storage the other night... I need new stings and cables for it.. plan on getting a different scope for it(its currently set up for spottie shooting... but I am having a hard time finding spot leagues in the area.. so I will be joining a 3D league this year.

anybody else?

Or is anybody interested in doing a NFAA FishingMinnesota spot league for fun?.. It would just be for giggles, It would have to be on your honor system as far as scores go... any intrest in that?

I would be interested in doing something like this Dietz, but I have no idea where to get started. Do you have a place thats pretty central?

I'm not a teacher or anything so I can't afford two bows tongue.gif but I would still ike to do this with my hunting setup. If anything it will make me more confident with it.

I'll will have to see if Cabin Fever is having any leagues this winter. That will give me some time to look at new bows since the wife said I could get a new bow finally! grin.gif Apparently I'm serious about this one.

Deitz, where you planning on shooting? I still have to see if Santa is going to let me keep that Mathews I found under the Christmas tree. grin.gif Oh yeah, haven't gotten that far in the year yet.

I will be shooting spotties at Bwana on Thursdays. I took a 10 year break from it, then went back last year. Love it. I'll be warming up a bit now once a week, plus I am going to be looking at going full back-tension this year, which will be a challenge. I'll shoot tomorrow in the afternoon toward evening...hopefully find something I like, then get a new string put on the bow and readjust the peep.

few weeks away.

Deitz, I'm up for putting in scores.... like a fishing minnesota league.

Deitz,Maybe I'll see you up there then. I have little ones that are looking to play this, that and the other thing so my needs are needed elsewhere... but if the opp comes up I'd like to shoot. Just curious, you hunt Wisc. Have you seen any property over in that neck of the woods for sale? I am looking for about 80 acres and don't want to have to drive an hour to get there. You can e-mail me if you know of anything. I figure rather then buying a rifle tag for Wi., because the cabin is 2 hours away, I could buy a bow tag and hunt both and make it worth my while. Just curious. I think you have my e-mail if not, let me know, I have yours.

I shoot my hunting bow for indoor leagues all winter. I just turn down the poundage a bit for comfort.

I used to manage a sporting goods store before becoming a teacher... I picked up 3 then... I have since picked up a few at Garage sales(recurves, and fish bows) Really only bought 2 since becoming a teacher 14 years ago.. It also helps that I dont have any children of my own.

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      I can get to everything except ICE. You guys too?

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.
