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?

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
