Rippinlip, what kind of facilities have you got for your indoor 3D? How many targets, what kind of distance? Same location as the MSAA shoot last summer?

Might be interested in driving down.

We normally shoot 30 targets in a range from @ 8 yards to @ 27 yards, depending on angles we can get to around 30.

Normally 3 moving targets too.

We shoot in a building at the Rice County Fair Grounds in Faribo.

I believe the MSAA shoot was held in Owatonna, we hosted a few Qualifying rounds, but not the state.

Thanks for starting this thread Don, the wife and I are hoping to make a few shoots this year up to your club also, last year was tough with family issues and we had to say goodbye to my wife's mom this past year that was not expected.

Hey guys I just wanted to show off and invite everyone to Echo Valley Archers indoor 3D range.

We are located in West Union, Iowa. About 40 miles south of the MN border (just south of Decorah, IA) and about a 2 hour drive from Rochester.

Take a look at our awesome setup.

We have a few more shoots coming up this winter.

February 1, 2, 22, and 23.

I thought I would give everyone here an invite to come shoot with us. I know it may be a long drive for a lot of you, but the range is worth the drive. It's a fun place to shoot, with a lot of friendly people.

If anyone has any questions feel free to send me a PM or post a message here.

Is the 3D challenge Shoot this weekend a non money shoot (no Payout)? Just looking for a fun no competition course to throw some arrows at.

Nope, all Chilakoot shoots are just for fun. Choose from the stake you feel most comfortable. Use a rangefinder if you choose. No awards given, though we do collect and post scores, if you choose to turn one in.

We draw one registration card from each 25 registered shooters for free shooting at our next shoot.

We have both a money round and non money round up here in Duluth for the Heritage 3D shoot. The normal round during the day is just for fun but you can certainly keep score if you want too. We have a 2 person scramble for money at 5pm Saturday. If you haven't shot a 2 person scramble it is a ton of fun. If you're up near the land of snow and ice stop by and fling some arrows!

      I heard western MN was pretty good but it appears that the central area was poor.  I knew there would be more hunters.  Expect more of that when other seasons open.

      We returned home today from a short 3 day fishing trip on Vermilion. The weather was chilly most of the time and windy during our entire trip. All of the fishing took place on the east end of the lake and we fished from Daisy Bay to Armstrong Bay with many stops in between. The fishing party included myself, my cousin, and a very dear friend. We bought pike suckers and nitecrawlers for bait. We used jig/minnow, bottom bouncer/colored hook and beads, and lindy rigs. We fished water from 15' to 30' and targeted rock reefs and holes. The water temperature varied between 57 and 59 degrees depending on the time of day. During our stay, we caught one fish on a minnow and 80+ on a half crawler. In addition, we caught several jumbos that were incidental to fishing for the walleyes. We found that a bottom bouncer, 4'-5' leader, 2-fluorescent light green beads, and red hook worked best. We found fish at most of the places we stopped at and 20'-26' was the optimum depth. The fish bit lightly and most of the time a hit was indicated by a bump followed by a slight drag on the line. We missed lots of fish by setting the hook fairly quickly after the initial bump in an attempt to avoid gut hooked fish. We found the fish scattered with the larger concentrations on mud bottom. Probably 1/2 of our fish were the 10''-13" up and comers while the rest included lots of 14"-17" eaters and several slot fish from 20"-22" and one 28". We had two fish fries and enjoyed every minute. We reserved the same time slot for next year. I think we hit the fall colors at it's peak and it was spectacular to say the least.   Good Fishing😀      MarkB   This was the largest walleye that we caught during our stay........

      For me it’s been slow. Last Wednesday got 2 small northern and a nice bass for 5 hours fishing. Was using shiners mainly. Very little boat traffic and access has been mostly empty as well when I drive by.
    • bowkill78
      This is the quietest forum on the planet.  I'm going back to Clearwater for one last trip.  How has the fall fishing been?

      Beats my banana sized walleyes on leadcore...

      Hit up the lake Friday afternoon running around we did not get anything but one 22" eye pulling a lindy with a worm.  We then pulled out of the lake and Saturday went to Winnie.  Stayed dry up there but the fishing success eluded our boats.  
    • LakeofthewoodsMN
      On the south end...  The traditional fall jig bite for walleyes is in full swing.  There are various schools located across the south shore.  Anglers catching good numbers of walleyes just outside the Lighthouse Gap where the Rainy River enters Lake of the Woods, in front of Zippel Bay and around Long Point.  Depths of 22-28', anchored up and jigging with a fathead or frozen shiners has been successful.  Anglers going through a lot of fish, sorting through lots of smalls to ultimately get nice eaters.  A lot of action.  Some anglers still drifting spinners with a minnow or crawler with success.  Some good walleye reports also from Four Mile Bay in 10-15'. On the Rainy River...   Intermittent runs of emerald shiners have entered the river as have some walleyes.  Mixed reports by anglers, as the big run hasn't happened yet.  Typically activity increases as water cools.  Current on the river is low.  Most anglers are jigging with frozen shiners, although trolling crankbaits or crawler harnesses are still effective.  Sturgeon anglers focusing on deeper holes with a sturgeon rig loaded with crawlers and shiners.  Pike showing hanging on weed edges. Up at the NW Angle...  Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake staying and fishing in MN waters.  There are boat shuttle / passenger services available to the Angle.  Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for options.   The foliage is beautiful and the walleye fishing is good.  Jigging with a minnow on structure in 10 - 15' and 21 - 27' effective.  Gold, orange and glow colors great choices.  Water temps in the low 60's.  A nice mixed bag of walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, pike and smallmouth.  Muskie anglers reporting nice fish as well.

      I forgot to add all our fish were on a lindy rig with a medium sized rainbow
    • Wishin4Walleyes
      Thanks for the posts all. I've been monitoring this forum for a bit and it had gotten quiet so made me worried the fall bite was off to a slow start.   Glad to hear jig and minnow bite is going as that's by far the most fun way to get em!
