Bow hunt or duck hunt???

Recommended Posts

Bogsucker

Which will it be this weekend? Seeing more ducks in the area though I'd really like to stick a deer early season too. I've passed up a few shots on small bucks and missed a nice one last weekend. Pheasant hunters will be out in droves this weekend and will be moving deer where I hunt. But then again we did see a lot of mallards moving in last night and I haven't been out yet. Forecast is for clear skies and near 70 on Saturday, don't feel like duck hunting weather or deer hunting weather for that matter. Decisions!!! Maybe I should go fishing! What to do?

Pheasant doesn't open 'till the 16th!!!!!!

Just because waterfowl opened a week early Pheasant does NOT. Check the regs.

I would duck hunt the AM and deer the PM

Pheasant season must be a week late this year??? I don't pheasant hunt so I guess I'll have to wait a week to have the deer chased to me!

I would say that next weekend if you have a stand near some public areas (that hold pheasants). That you should have no problems seeing deer!

Nothing like having an army of pheasant hunters unknowingly help you out grin.gif
Sit as long as you can!
Good Luck

I've always contemplated bowhunting on the morning of pheasant opener, but I like pheasant hunting too much to give it up.

Weathers too nice for duck hunting, you get that 1/2 hour/45 minutes in the morning, then no ducks flying, I'm going bow hunting Sat AM and PM, then will play it by ear on Sunday. May just try to get all the To-dos done so I can hit the bowhunting hard in late Oct/early Nov.

weather is going to be my determeing factor.
More than likely it looks like I will be fishing instead.

Bow hunting both times, duck hunt in the morning if it's 20mph wind or stronger. I'd have to be pounding a limit of ducks in 3 hours or less to not be wishing I was bowhunting if it's reasonably still. Actually I can't do either one on Saturday, my wife's got class for her Master's program. Have to watch the Twins beat the Yanks with the kids.

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.

      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
