Just curious if anyone has spent any time bowhunting in Pilsbury? I have driven through there many times and now that my parents will be living close by, I will start doing some scouting.

I am an experienced bowhunter - just not to the Pilsbury State Forest. Any general information is appreciated.

Thanks,

Mysterio

Lots of small game hunters, but also quite a bit of recreation use. I hunt rifles here every year, but have only bow hunted late season. Then its very quiet.

Sorry so abrupt with the last post.

Yes, there are LOTS of small game hunters there. At least until they reduce the woods to a ghostly silence. Then, they'll be gone. Ever been to Nemaji? That's what's coming.

Sometimes, for the safety of bowhunters (yes, I bow hunt) I wish they'd ban the use of rifles for small game and only allow shotgun. (no, I'm not a gun-ban type of guy either) I had a .17 whizzzzz by my tree in Pillsbury a few years ago.

I'm done there.

Thanks for the info guys. Small game hunters always worry me when I am hunting public land sitting in a tree in full camo.

I live right next to it and bow hunt it all year. If you are willing to go deep you will be fine. There is about 2000+ acres to play in you just need to do some home work. By the way I would stay clear during rifle season.

Thanks for the info realtower. When hunting public property, I pack light and take long walks so that shouldn't be a problem. I won't be hunting it at all during rifle season. Maybe after. How is the deer ratio there? Bucks to does?

Some times it feels like 100 to 1 does to bucks. But thats MN. The bucks are there but they have been dealing with people along time so (HUNT THICK) thats my tip.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
