Love the woods....

You know that feeling you get when you get to camp or arrive at the woods to look around. I had a chance this weekend to check some stands at our rifle camp, do a little scouting and ride the wheeler a bit. It is tough to match that moment when all is still, not a sound to be heard and you are just soaking in all the woods has to offer. God I need Deer Camp bad!!! Only 10 days til I leave...... I love the woods!

Love the woods to, but to wait until firearms season to get in them is too much for me. I'm in them at least some 12 months out of the year. I have a small woods & burn wood, partly for cost savings, but a lot because it's another reason to be in them. They're the greatest. Bowhunting is SO addicting though.

I agree, though I have never tried crack.

I also cannot wait until gun season to get out there. Bowhunting really helps me get out the itch.

You mean if I don't take steps now, I could be in big trouble? I borrowed a bow last weekend and shot a deer, now I went and bought a bow of my own. Egads, where does it stop! Is there a support group some place? If there is one, it will have to wait until next week because I'm going hunting tomorrow........

No, but based on what I'm reading, and my own personal experience, there really needs to be a support group for hunters who have shot, and lost, a nice deer... especially those of us who thought we put a nice hit on it, but still couldn't find it. Hurts for a long time. I can not imagine what it must be like for a parent who loses a child, and never knows what happened. Just losing a buck and not knowing drove me nuts for a year.

If there were a support group for bowdiction no one on this site would be interested in going to it. In fact they'd be in denial of the problem. Heck that probably means there actually is one. If I hear of one I'll let you know so you can avoid it...

Bow hunting sounds like fun, but addicting? Apparently you are not duck hunters, now that is addicting.

As far as loving the woods, I try to make it on the lake or woods every weekend. I have a hard time going without it.

I used to be both. I made a few trips to ND duck hunting & had some decent shoots. As fun as that goes, every time before I'd go I'd be just dying over the fact I couldn't bowhunt that weekend. I usually duck hunt 2-3 mornings a year these days, otherwise bowhunting. Shooting a deer or having one close vs. a limit of ducks, no comparison. The limit vs. seeing no deer are pretty close, with the ducks getting the nod. The biggest rush in hunting to me is the sound of that arrow hitting the deer when you know it's good, no matter what size or gender they are.

right on with the arrow impact CRACK. duck hunting, HA! The flush and cackle of a rooster leaving the grass or cattails, by far a much bigger rush, but not like the snap of a twig when even a fawn comes out.

The flush and cackle of a rooster gets my heart pumping just as much as the twig snapping of a deer walking up on you. What really gets my blood boiling though is the explosion of a grouse flushing in the deep woods and trying to regain yourself enough to try, key word try, to get a shot at it. Although, the deer, be it buck or doe, stopping at 30 yards broadside when the smokepole is in my hands takes the cake.

      Latest update from Crane lake.....people are hopeful and are predicting a possible ice out May 7...Been some good deterioration this week

      It is my understanding that Pepin ice went out with the assist of the Coast Guard ice breaker.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.
