Getting itchy...

7 posts in this topic

I am crazy....Its not even walleye fishing with boats and real tackle and Im already itching to hunt deer...I was talking with my buddies last night at work(who give me nonstrop crap cuz i only woke up to hunt three mornings last season)and I made three vows for next season

1) I will wake my lazy fat ### out of bed and get in the woods more

2) I will scout more for more spots, better quality sign/areas, and gear it more towards buck hunting

3) I will have a stricter scent control routine and do everything in my power to upgrade my stealthiness in the woods

ONLY 6 1/2 MOR MONTHS!!!!!!!! grin.gifgrin.gifblush.giffrown.gifcrazy.gif

It's good to have a plan....and it's a good thing that there is fishing to fill up the space between hunting seasons!

If you want to know how bad the itch is, I went to North dakota last weekend and had to look at hundreds of deer out in the field. That will make you want to go tommorrow. Glad I dont have to see that all year long.

I got out for walk/scout in the woods this week to feed my fix. I saw more turkey tracks than deer tracks! I might have to pull the bow out this spring, too.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
