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

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
