BLACKJACK

40 days til early goose, then archery deer shortly after that! Starting to look at my to-do list with the thought of what absolutely has to be done before hunting season and what can slide. Looking at a new bow, trying to decide if I should get some more goose decoys, planning on getting out and beating on some doors next weekend to get archery permission - I'm getting pumped!

You and me both!
I need to start getting busy on my duck boat...seal some leaks, repaint it, touch-up my blind, put some new cord on my dekes.
Counting the days.....

I truely can't think of anything in the outdoors that makes me happier than sitting with Bud(chocolate lab) and watching the sun rise over the dekes. I love fishin', but when a bird sets its wings and is heading for the decoys, I get, well I can't explain it. Waterfowl hunting is a true passion for me. You guys are bringing up some emotions that I put away for the year. I'm thinking OK, put line on new dekes, touch up paint on goose shells, get some floater geese bought. I better get ready.

yeah, i'm as excited as ever this year too. I am only 17, and was just wondering what requirements are needed to hunt the early goose season. If i have a small game license and a federal duck stamp, what elso do i need to hunt the early season (which starts on sept. 1)? Do i just have to buy a early season license that costs $5 ? Please reply with some info. thanks everyone.

Any dates set on Game Fair and Prairie Pothole Days. I'll be there trying to win with some sweet chocolate labs. Sure glad they didn't move the duck opener up. Fiance wanted a fall wedding so I gave in on the second weekend of bowhunting. I would have given in on Sat. opener if they had moved the season up but think she would have gotten the clue when we got to our room and the waders were hanging from the door?

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.
