Lets just say there is a lot of information to get covered in one day we really have to keep things moving. The class we offer in fall is a two day but it is nice to have it all wrapped up in a day. It will be fun to see some FM'ers there.

As a recent attendee of a Bowhunter Ed class, I think they need to cut back on some of the material, shorten it up, we were there from 8 AM until 6 PM!!!! The info tree stand safty and safely climbing trees was very helpful but most of the rest of the information was stuff that most longtime hunters know about. Animal identification? Starting a fire? Come on!

The problem is the class make up, I have had 12 year olds all the way to 70, veterans to first timers, The firearms safety class is similar alot of stuff to cover. I feel bad for the person taking the class just to get into a city hunt, and I feel really bad for the person just wanting to learn about archery, I am just giving the 10,000' overview and talking over their heads.

Exactly. There are a lot of first-timers taking the course to qualify for out-of-state hunts, etc and all the knowledge they can pick up the better. Pretty painless for a one-day course, redundant or not. That card you get is worth it's weight in gold.

I understand the problem and I appreciate the time you spend doing it. But that doesn't mean that I have to like it \:\) I think the National should either split the course into beginners and advanced or cut back on the material.

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      We we're done by 7 this morning.  Were set up over field goose decoys now.
