I DID IT!!!!

I have been mad past few weeks. Because I could not get tight patterns with my bow. My friend Pete is really big into bow hunting. I told him at my patterns were too big for the kill zone on a deer. I let him shoot my bow. He said it shot just fine. He moved the nock point and the peep sight. and I was still too big for the kill zone on the deer. He said to watch my andchore point. so I did and still my patterns were still to big. I was about ready to give up on bow hunting. but I still shot then I got sweaty and took off my glass and I got the peep right up next to my eye and I was getting patterns in side a clay bird at 30 yards. so now I have to go with out glass for bow hunting or get contacts. my eyes are not bad enough were I need glass to see the deer and shoot safty. I am so glad now I can shoot deer and not be scard that I don't hit the deer in the kill zone. That the only thing abotu bow hunting its a lot more easy to hit the deer in a bad shot and not kill the deer and find it.

good luck shooting this year!!! wink.gif

That's gotta be encouraging! I wear contacts and would love to get that surgury if I could afford it. I never tried shooting with my glasses. I should try it and see if it affects my shot???

I too always put contacts in while shooting.. shooting with glasses is not easy!

I always wear my contacts for everything, so I never really thought about it. I hunted one season with glasses (prebow) when I first got them in my early 20's & hated when they fogged up on a cool morning & said that's enough of that.

Well just tonight I shot my bow for about a hour. I forgot to take off my glass. I brought my peep to nose bone (the hard put of bone right by your eye on your nose) and the vane to my lip I was getting patterns inside a clay bird. so I found a way to shot with my glass. now I am really pumped for bow hunting because before I thought I could not go because my bow was not dailed in.

good luck out there kc. just keep practicing and your group will tighten in time. remember to relax the bow hand grip! big factor for new shooters. I shot with glasses for 36 years. just had lasic 1/2 year ago so looking forward to hunting this year without them.

      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)

      Greetings all! Our group (two boats/five guys) is looking at fishing/camping trip based at Hinsdale Island Campground or Wake 'Em Up Bay Campground in about 3 weeks.  Can anyone advise about Hinsdale, especially the shoreline for landing boats? (Is it sandy or rocky? Mostly protected?) We're also wondering how busy both campgrounds are? We've stayed at Wake Em Up,  but that was 6-8 years ago and it was mostly empty...just the host and 2-3 others. Nowadays, do either or both fill up on June weekends? (We'd probably arrive on a Saturday, stay most of the week.) Of course, we also welcome suggestions for walleye techniques, depths, etc. We tend to fish smallies during the day and chase eyes in the evening.  Thanks in advance for your help!

      Saturday we got beat up by the wind all day long driving around to the usual spots and didn't catch a thing.  Towards the evening we went in shallow and ended up catching 7 keepers in 6ft of water on slip bobbers.

      I didn’t have any luck, but I heard others and saw people catch fish.
