Wife thinking of getting into bowhunting. What do they teach you at these classes? I'm pretty sure my wife has to get her firearms safty certificate to bow hunt but she has no intentions on shooting a gun says there to loud and she'll stick to the bow. Wondering if this class takes care of it.

She still needs the gun safety. This class does go over lots of good topics related to bowhunting from safety to scents to equipment to set-ups, etc. It is not a required coarse to bowhunt in Minnesota, though it is required in several other states. (So. Dakota, Montana, Colorado are some)

DonBo, I would like to know where it clearly defines in the MNDNR rule book that you need firearms safety to go bowhunting.

I'm not absolutely sure, but directly underneith the box you marked, in the Big Game/Archery column, it says "required".

The #2 area you marked is for 16 & 17 year olds only, and I don't believe it pertains to big game.

You'd better check before you try to get her a license this fall and find out you can't.

No, the 18 years and older also has a (2) next to it, and the box under it is for "license requirements" as listed on the top of the page.

I know for a fact you don't need it to hunt archery as I have witnessed people do it and it's perfectly legal.

--Not trying to make a big arguement here, but just getting the facts straight.

If you know for sure, then there's no issue. Thanks for the clarification.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention I thought for sure my wife had to get her certificate. I even started looking at classes for her. I'm going to call the DNR to make sure but I was confused on that graph with the 2 top boxes for what was what

The top box is for the FAS, and the 2nd box is license requirements. I will admit, when I first started looking into it, I was a little confused also.

      Nice work Borch! Or maybe I should say Mrs. Borch?   Looks like I missed out.

      Keys to make the blade work well. *Sharp! *Cutting edge needs to line up to the Gullet of the opposite blade! *Add a .020 shim 1/8" wide between blade screw and cutting edge. Increases cut angle to same as K-Drill! I'm working on another set welding  1/4" piece of blade to the outside blade edge extending the blade 1/2" past auger flight making it a full 8" hole. Note how the K-drill blade extends 1/2" past the auger flights.

      I like your blade work as well. Two summers ago when I sold my hand auger at my garage I think I throw out about 4 sets of those old blades as well!  😣
    • papadarv
      Made the drill point out of a spade drill bit welded to a 3/8” 16 bolt/screw than cut & ground to shape the point. Drilled & tapped center of blade bracket. Tap slowly as that steel seem a grade or two above basic mild steel.

      Thank you

      That is some sweet work right there. I see these at garage sales all summer, may be I should start picking them up?  Looks like you added a drill point on the end of them as well. The adapters and the end point are key items on making these right.

      I went a different route, got several vintage Mora 7 1/2" hand augers $10 to $15 each with the old hardened sweedish steel blades modified to replicate K-drill style blades #5. Went with clam plate 3/4" drive bit & M18 Fuel Mud Mixer worked ok on early ice #1. Wanted to try my DeWalt/Jiffy so converted to the 7/8" drive bit, didn't have the power to cut the agressive blade #2. Later ice in Wheelhouse, went with my Eskimo 43cc with a Walker 25' flex exhaust out the door, cut 32" ice in 27 seconds #3. Ran 4 1/2 holes to 1 of my buddies new green ION 8in. Made some adapters to put the 7/8" auger bits on my Clam Plate and Mud Mixer#4 for early ice this comming season.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.
