College Guys

8 posts in this topic

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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
