I was wondering why I felt a breeze. Yesterday morning the morning temps were in the low fortys up north. The smell of fall is in the air. Driving to work I don't know if I'm imagining it or not but the trees look to be changing colors. Betting it has to do with the dry weather we have had the last month and a half. This morning on the way to work there were puddles every where. Rained from mid-night till this morning. Ground is so dry the water is just puddling up. I have everything ready to go in the garage already. Just need to knock my arrow and see the buck I have been seeing all summer.

we were up at Itasca last weekend camping and there was a tree or two on the wilderness drive that we biked by changing colors.

I was just in the BWCA this weekend and happened to see a few trees that appeared to be changing already. Sad that it's been that dry. Does get you in the fall spirit though!! Football and hunting, it's an unbeatable combo.

We are now down to 26 days and can't believe summer is gone and we are prepping for Hunt 06'. Several of the oak trees in my neighborhood are starting to drop their acorns.

Isn't this a little early for this to happen? Does that mean that the deer will be keying in on the acorns or will that be long gone time Sept. 16th comes around?!?

If I remember right, I don't think we had a real good Acorn drop last year but the year before was awesome!!! Hope we have a good acorn year as I hunt around a lot of oaks!!! WOW WE ARE GETTING CLOSE!!

Only 5 more sleeps for me. Elk and whitetail open the 28th Aug. It has been dry up here and I don't wish the farmers any bad luck but hope it doesn't rain for a couple of wks as I will be hunting a couple of watering holes deep in the bush. I was out there last weekend it looked promising but it did last year but the timbers showed up and run the elk out of the area.

I have never stuck an elk with the bow but lots of deer so hope to draw first blood this year on the elk.

I have been practising with the broadheads for a little over a month now and it feels good but I am sure the blood will get pumping if an elk shows up.

Good luck to all fellow archers this fall.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
