Techno Hunt


Recommended Posts

Just curious for everyone's thoughts on techno hunt or the DART target system. Do you feel it legitimately represents the kill zones and proper shots on the animal? I've heard people up here say it isn't as life like as shooting a 3d range. I think that while a 3d range is great practice there is something about seeing the moving animal infront of you on the screen and having to pick the shot at the right moment that gets you geared up for archery season. The only downside I can see is that you can only shoot 20 yards on most of them. I know that I was thrilled when one of the local shops up here in Superior installed one this summer.So lets hear some opinions

I just shoot it because its fun. On the other hand it has worked well teaching my wife and children to look for proper shot angles as well as looking at whats going on around the deer they are trying to shoot such as other deer behind there intended target.

I have shot 2 Techno hunts in the last week and a half. What I like is that it get me to focus on the quarry, not the "target" or the equipment or my sometimes flinch. And it is a lot more fun than shooting paper plates. For sure, I will sight the bow in at all the pins, (I put on a new sight and only have the 20 yard pin set as of today), but most of the practice will be on Techno hunt.

I've always enjoyed techno shoots. Been shooting them for over 12yrs now and I've never dawned on me that the shot placements didn't represent a life like shot. I think it helps with choosing good shots, tests your patience, and offers you good practice during the off season. The 20yd norm is fine with me, as I don't usually shoot only up to 30yds anyways. Overall it's fun, my kids enjoy it, and I'll keep doing it till something better comes along.

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
