I hear ya! So I'm awake early today (4am)and I just can't wait til 9am rolls around so I can tune in Buckmasters and realtree outdoors for a fix that will get me through til Monday when work will divert me the rest of the week. (HA!) and low and behold????? THEY SHOW THE SAME EPISODES AS YESTERDAY!!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Thank goodness for the net so I could check the longrange forecast again and make sure the weather will be good (It Will!!) and read if there's anything I've forgotten, (not that I know of yet) and then went to pick up Gadget JR. and take him out to borrow clothes from my brother for him. (he grew 7 inches since last year?!?) Got my grand dads red wool suit for him to wear under the orange (kinda cool seeing it used for the 4th generation) and then back for the second to the last packing of gear.

Wheeew. Made it thru to the Vikes game.

Now a little help from Mrs. Gadget grin.gif and I'll sleep til 4am! Only have to wait 2 hrs to get up and start Monday!

Looks like I'm not so psych'd after all!

Good luck to the rest of you!

Gadget

I feek the same as you guys do. I have been bowhunting for weeks but the rifle season is a lot diferent. I'm usually solo for Bow. Now its time to get together and have a great time!! I'm so excited. Three days left of work! Man those days are going to creep, but its worth it. I can actually enjoy the long days anticipating the next week.

My wife calls it HF (hunting fever). I love bow hunting, but like others I'm usually solo. Rifle season brings nephews, grandpa, friends, neighbors, etc into the mix. I'm getting so I spend more time helping others get deer than myself, although I spend the whole week usually so there isn't a lack of time in the woods for me. The traditions are the key, I laugh when someone turns "The Second Week of Deer Camp" up the first time on the radio. We have a trophy we give out that you get your name on with the year for the "best" deer. It isn't always the biggest deer usually the persons first deer or the best story. A lot of lobbying by the guys to promote their deer. Have fun, be safe.

I also have the fever. Deer hunting has been all I can think about for the last month. One day at work feels like two. I've made my lists and checked them a hundred times. I have all my stuff ready to go. Bibs and jacket are washed and outside hanging. Clothes are in plastic bags after scent killer washing. New gun is sighted in, cleaned and oiled. The poly on our brand new deer camp sign for our shack is drying. I've tinkered around with my new Garmin Legend GPS enough to where I know how to use it now. I've been having dreams of deer hunting. Some normal dreams, and some weird ones where we were hunting deer in the house! I can't take it anymore. Get me outta here and up to deer camp!!!

I would have liked to have been a mouse in the corner during that household deer hunt dream...the hallway would be a good funnel area...I'd set up in the kitchen come dusk, too.

All deer camps have fun traditions which makes the get together so enjoyable, the new guy who gets his or her's first deer and then they do the bragging stuff, the story of how I missed the big one, we have a plaque made up and the big buck goes on it with the name of the lucky hunter it gets displayed every year. We have a hat with a big 12 point buck on it its called the dirty dozen hat, the guy who shoots a 12 pointer gets the hat, that hat has been there too many years, maybe this year it will find a home, my home Good Luck and be safe.

Hey everyone. Have fun and be safe. I've got two weeks to wait before I hunt. I'm going a little batty reading all these posts and wishing I was headed north too. Guess I'll just have to chase the geese until it's my turn to sit in the woods.

Good Luck! smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

The oil changes are done (both truck and ATV). The clothes are washed and dried. Just 13 more hours then I'll be on my way.

Wish everyone luck, safety, and straight shooting.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
    • gimruis
      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
