Upcoming Season

Ok....who here has been and will continue to be worthless at work until bow season comes along? Man, I can't get it out of my head. Bow hunting for 20 years and it still gets to me tongue.gif. Just trying to drum up some conversation, and want to see if anybody out there is as wacko as me!

I'm so busy trying to get my 'before hunting' list done that I haven't had time to think about it. Still need to get out and trim some stands, move a couple, make another one, more shooting practice, work up the fall food plots, plow some more ground for next spring, and oh yeah the wife has a couple of to-dos.

I would have to agree with Deitz, its fun to get out in September if its not too hot but when the end of Oct comes and the leave are turning color and its cooled down and the pheasants are cackling and you know the bucks are going to start roaming - nothing better!!! At my age, its even better than sex!!!

I'm pretty sure I think about it more than sex.

If I start thinking about the big buck I saw last year and can't sleep.

The guys I work with help run the Duluth hunt and we tend to get a bit off task when bow hunting comes up. Tonight is the lottery to determine which zone I get to hunt. After tonight I will really be pumped because I can do some serious scouting and research on the particular mega trophy deer I will be hunting. My personal restrictions this year are 12 points or 170". The crazy thing is it's entirely realistic!

I'm right with ya brother!!!!!!!. The wife gets mad at me when I get home from work. There are three things I'm doing. Shooting, watching the outdoor channel or puttzing around with all of my gear. Well there is the Twin's thing too. Just like a kid in a candy shop. Every pay-day have to take a trip to the sporting goods store and check out the new toys and buy little things that you might just need. Now as for being worthless at work HMMM Don't tell anyone but I sit and play on this forum while I'm at work. If I can't be hunting or fishing I might as well be reading about it plus getting paid for it. Have to be glad my boss isn't into hunting or this forum. As for the sex quotes from the others, just have to say to bad I enjoy my wife as much as I enjoy hunting and fishing. Helps when she enjoys the hunting and fishing just as much as I do. Only problems are it make it harder to get up in the morning.

I'm getting pretty psyched, but I'd have to agree with Blackjack's first paragraph. I've got a lot of things to do hunting & nonhunting related before I'm ready for 9/16, but I'll definitely be in the tree then. I'm still fishing & have lots of firewood to cut yet as well.

Well at least I know I'm not the only one. I don't lose any sleep over season either...except maybe the night before. I just think about it alot....I mean alot. I still have to go hang a couple of portables out next weekend. Went scouting a couple of weeks back and seen 1 decent buck. I personally love the first 2 weeks of season. So far the skeeters are non-existant up here, so that will keep me from fidgeting too much. Hopefully the next 30 days or so will go by fast grin.gif

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.

      I broke a bunch also at first  my bear paws just squeeze a little to hard! You definitely need to be carefull when putting them on to much pressure and another one bites the dust. Great bobber and concept can be used for a slip or fixed bobber just a little fragile.
