Starting to get the fever............

I got my bow out today and started to get back into shape for the upcoming season. Man it sure feels good to be zapping them arrows into the bullseye. On a side note, my 7 year old daughter almost had her first bow kill today. LOL We were standing by the target and she was shooting and out pops this chipmunk. I tell her, ya know grandpa doesn't like them because they eat all his birdseed and she looks up, should I shoot him? I told her if ya' want to go ahead. Needless to say she missed but boy was she fired up!

Boy Howdy, July to me means get ready for the hunting season for sure!

Been shooting my bow now for about three weeks. Just a few arrows at least every other day. But always make sure the first shot is a Bullseye!

I have to start practicing out of my ground blind before I use it this year. I would also like to get a deer decoy to put out and watch what happens! Should be fun! At least the ground blind keeps the mosquitoes to a minimum! shocked.gif

Was out camping this weekend and had plenty of time to read thru my 'Bowhunting' and 'Deer and Deer Hunting' magazines, my first project when I got home last night was to move my archery butt, with plans to start shooting tonight. Also been seeing a few bucks in velvet. Starting to get psyched!

I'm starting to think about it. I did get the deer camera out last week & checked it on Saturday, it was full. I hope it's working okay, I didn't expect it to fill up that fast. I'm still thinking more about fishing than hunting, but it's definitely time to start putting some arrows in the targets.

Yeah, I think it's time to dust off the case and throw some arrows around. It's hard to believe just la little over 2-1/2 months till archery season.

I have been shooting about once a week. I started about a month ago. I would shoot every day but its just too darn hot outside. but I can't wait intell bow hunting this year. This will be my 1st year going out. I went out last December but never saw anything. Also if I did see anything I would of saw a deer. Iwould of not shot at it because I didnt know how my bow would shoot. but now I have my bow dialed in pretty good now.

Good luck shooting this fall guys. P.S. don't take any risky shots at deer this year I cant stand people. Shooting and hitting the deer in a bad spot and can't fine them.

later kc0myy

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.

      On the south end...  A great 2022 MN Fishing Opener for most anglers.  The walleyes and saugers are hungry and the bite is on!  Good numbers of fish caught. Lots of big fish amongst the eaters.  Most anglers were vertically jigging in 6' - 20'.  Anchor up and jig over the side of the boat.  A nice mix of sizes.   The water is a bit dirty on the east portion of the south shore due to runoff from the rivers.  A bright jig with a minnow is the most productive. Reports were also good from the west portion of the south shore.  A bit cleaner water and equally good bite.  Lots of big fish mixed in with eaters.  Some anglers fishing on structure or on the edge of structure where available. On the Rainy River...   A lot of walleyes in the river as predicted, but the current is ripping and the water is a bit dirty.  Those who found slack water often found fish.  The norm was 6' - 15' with a bright jig and minnow.   Typical spots in the main channel were tough to fish due to high current.  The fast moving water helped to congregate fish.  Once you found them, there were normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig bite up at the Angle for the opener.  Most fish were caught in 6' - 20' adjacent shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  With cold water, a subtle presentation.  Both fatheads and frozen shiners worked well. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)
