Good luck to everyone on the opener! I will miss the MN opener this year, but don't feel too sorry for me-- as many of you know, I'll be chasing elk and muleys in MT! I leave in about 30 hours and I can't wait!!! I'll report back in when I get home on the 23rd. Things will be super busy, so don't expect a story right away, but I do promise I'll get to one at some point...

I hope the buck you've been scouting does exactly what he's supposed to, you make good on the opportunity, and I get to see lots of additions to the photo contest thread! Good luck, have fun, and be safe!

Good luck Scoot!!! I along w/ the rest of the gang here will be anxiously awaiting the "play by play" when you get back.

I'll be sitting out the MN bow opener this year too, but don't feel too bad for me because I'll be on the road to the land where the deer and the antelope play.....Wyoming.

Hoping to top my antelope from last year, but really hoping my brother can connect w/ a biggun' as he hasn't had alot of time to hunt over the years.

One more night shift to go. Some quality time w/ my wifey on Friday and last minute stuff gathering, and we're west bound on Saturday morning.

Good luck this fall everyone!!!

I'll be in my layout blind surrounded by Canada goose decoys on Saturday morning, then head to my friends farm and bow hunt the rest of the day!

Good Luck to all!!! grin

Boy oh boy, it doesn't sound like anyone who's posted here will have anybody taking pity on them! Lots of fun plans over the opener! Good luck and have fun.

Good luck Scoot and everyone. I will be spending saturday night in the ground blind with my daughter on her first bowhunt. I'm not sure who's more excited, but she has been working her tail off shooting her bow.

Good luck to you Scoot and I look forward to the posts after your back (always a good read). I didn't think I'd be hunting Saturday morning but the south wind they say were going to get made me change my mind. Might just get another antler-less tag. Look out does!!!

I'm going to put out a wish in our 1 deer choice area and I know that at least 1 of the guys hunting our area reads up on me so here it is actually "tag" your deer from now on, quit motoring them for home after dark tagless saving your rifle land for later and stop baiting, pick up last years 50 pound shell corn bags that are under your stands. I will be checking your areas and even if it ruins my rifle hunting forever on those farmers property so be it, I'm done with game hogs that own a meat company for heavens sake. To all that hunt by the book, hey enjoy there's definitely some nice bucks to go after. Mild winter last year really seemed to show good antler growth this year even the young bucks have a better rack than some years.

I can't bite my tounge - or is it my typing fingers??? - anymore.

Why do you even hunt anymore? Based on your perpetually negative song and dance, it seems like it is going to give you an aneurism/heart attack at some point in the near future. It's not worth it - it's just a hobby.

I'm serious, I am concerned that you've forgotten how to find things to enjoy about hunting and the outdoors. I've never seen/heard/read someone complain so often about the same thing(s) as I've read from you on here.

Now, flame away at me if you desire.

Dude, I hear you. I am tired of hearing myself gripe and moan about the one deer limit we've had for years while I've watched the parade of does go by early season. And listen to others openly talk about tagging their wife or girlfriends deer. It's happening, get over it and enjoy your hunt. Or have a lot of kids. That's what I did and in a few years, they'll be filling all sorts of tags so no more complaining for sure then. laugh The 8 year old is a bow shooting machine now. Good luck everyone and have fun.

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.
    • smurfy
      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!
    • Wanderer
      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.
    • leech~~
      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆
    • Tom Sawyer
      Still waiting for global warming to ditch my Lazer Mag, always in the truck for thick, virgin ice.    Don't know if it's possible, or advisable, but thought I would throw a 8" K drill bit on it to lighten it up. Should be an adapter for such a conversion. Careful what you wish for, probably rip my arm off with a shredding combo like that 😂

      Leech I still have my old jiffy gas auger mainly for sentimental reasons. I haven’t used it for 3 years now. The only time I start it up is in the garage just to hear that pop pop pop sound lol   I will never go back and have no regrets going electric. Huge weight saver and with an extension will go through any thickness of ice. Starts first pull every time lol    we were fishing 2 weeks ago Swiss cheesing a slough here in SD on 4” of ice when someone else tried to fire up their gas auger and my buddies and I looked at each other almost in disbelief that someone was still using a gas auger.   pros and cons for sure but I think electric has more pros than cons with advancements lately     
    • smurfy
      any ice thickness reports..........especially on smaller not heavily fished lakes???????   chances are i wont be up till after christmas anyway, but............
    • leech~~
      Let me know when you go again.  I'll being my crossbow and take out the Deer when you kick them up!  😁
