After seeing the kick my dad got out of this, I thought I'd share it with some fellow duck hunters who almost always love a good story. I guess the funniest thing was I never thought anything about it.

Everyone knows the stereotypes about college guys. We're messy, we drink a lot of beer, we party all the time, etc. While these are mostly true (except no partying during duck season!), I would like to set the record straight. I was at home last week with some spare time on my hands- not quite enough to go duck hunting, and noticed a fair amount of stuff on my floor. Realizing that I hadn't vacuumed yet since I moved in in late August, I thought I'd clean the place up a bit. I got out the extension cord and earplugs and vacuumed the carpeted part of the floor with a 5-gallon shop-vac. Noise aside, it really did a nice job and went pretty quick. Just thought I'd share my story, if nothing else you can save it for emergencies and tell it to the wife or girlfriend and say "Hey, at least I'm not that bad."

Good hunting to everyone, get out there as much as possible before the 28th!

Dude, there is no guilt in having strategic piles during a hunting season. Having things in pile is time saver when you accidently hit the snooze the morning of a hunt.

yeah, I pile up all my clothes the night before in reverse-order from how I will put it on to maximize speed / efficiency the next morning when I wake up having only gotten 4 hours of sleep. Gotta love it.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
