Life is good!!!

7 posts in this topic

Was just discussing this morning with my wife my dilemma. Going pheasant hunting tomorrow, Sun morning I'd like to go bow hunting but I should get going early and claim a spot for pheasant hunting, will be pheasant hunting every night next week, then heading for SoDak on the 21st for five days of pheasant hunting, then taking some time off the first week in Nov to bow hunt during the rut - decisions, decisions!!!

Life is good!!! The best time of the year is here!!!

Wish the better half here was that understanding!!! frown.gif Guess I can't complain though, T - 6 days until I leave for Colorado elk trip!

By the way, from what I've seen the last few days and heard from others, I wouldn't wait until November for rut activity. Seems to really be picking up already now!

When I was first going out with my wife, she said she couldn't believe that I'd just take off for weekends at a time, now 18 years later guess shes used to it and plans accordingly. Shes going shopping this weekend and heading to her Mom's next weekend.

You're right, deer are going to start heating up but pheasants come first, I maintain two labs and love to hunt pheasants, going to hit them hard. But I love deer hunting too so when the rut really heats up, and I get back from SoDak, I'll bowhunt morning and evening and hunt pheasants during the day. I'll probably lose 10 pounds in the next two weeks. Good thing I drink beer so I don't waste away!!! grin.gif

Lawdog... best of luck to you! That would be an awesome hunt!

When the Lil Mrs and I were dating I told her that she could tell me anything that she wanted to but "Don't ever tell me that I can not go hunting." To date she has never told me that! If fact she is giving my son and I an early Christmas present in a guided deer hunt in northern MN. I think that she still thinks that I am crazy to get up and leave at Oh-Dark-Thirty to hunt but hey... that's what I do. Take car and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

When I started dating my wife I told her she would not be seeing me that much in the fall. She asked if she could get a bow and hunt with me to see what all of the fuss was about. I thought no problem, she would only be a fair weather hunter I figured. Well long story short I cannot get her out of hunting camp, she takes 3 day weekends and 2 weeks off for the prime rut and is thinking of taking off more this year. I wish she would just go shopping once in a while. grin.gif

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.
