love to hunt

It's getting closer

5 posts in this topic

13 days till the Minnesota opener.

This gun season is going to especially cool for a couple reasons.

1) I have not been able to bow hunt at all this year due to

2) My brother is coming home on leave from Iraq for deer season.

I can't wait.

Anything cool with the rest of you, kids first year or anything like that?

My 12 year old daughter drew the St. Croix youth hunt, which is this Saturday. Since I'll be flying her in from Utah, the hunt is going to cost me about $800 (flight, gear, hotel, food). Can anyone think of a better way to spend 800 bucks?

How about the taxidermy bill for getting the big buck she shoots mounted? grin.gif

I would have to say a few things for me:

1) my daughter just turned 2 and would be excited to see a deer up close (besides in a store)

2) It's DEER SEASON...need we say more

I've got a 3yr old boy that, in this past year, really got into the fish and ducks that I brought home. Last year he didn't get to come to "deer camp" (grandparent's house) because he and his sister (my 1yr old daughter) were both sick and stayed home with mom.

This year I'm hoping that everyone is healthy so that he and my daughter can get a good up close and personal look at a deer that hopefully "dad" shoots. wink.gif

      That sounds encouraging. Did you notice all the dead carp on shore? I wonder what's up with that, a virus or something maybe?

      thats a good priority

      I've never trout fished in MN and was hoping to get some help as a newcomer to the state. I know there are a lot of streams but I've also read that DNR info on them is often out of date and I dont want to drive an hour or more to a desolate stream.    Most seem to either have only browns or only small brooks. I really am after some medium size, 12 to 14 inches, rainbow trout for the smoker so I definitely will release any big browns if I catch one.    I've got waders and a kayak and am willing to do what is necessary to get to good, less pressured water.    Bonus offer, I have 2 very stable fishing kayaks, you can stand up in them, and would be more than happy to let you use one if you wanted to organize a float down river in exchange for showing me a decent spot to get some rainbows. Any takers or advice?    Edit - I live in Andover and would prefer to keep the drive below an hour and a half unless it's a well worth while stretch of water.

      That's a really neat boat

      Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

      Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately.
