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.

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
