  1. Deer Camp Grub

    NoWiser.....I hope you are canoeing way out into the bush or something.....that is a real "Granola Eater" menu there. On a windy day I would be worried about blowing over.
  2. When are you leaving for the deer camp?

    I have seen a lot "rigs" blowing threw town last night and today....I may as well head out too...pretty hard to be productive. I should be to camp around 10 tomorrow...check on 1 more stand....chase a grouse...shoot a duck...if the ponds melt off again.
  3. When are you leaving for the deer camp?

    Maybe tomorrow night after 10 pm or Friday Morning. It is a very long 30 min. trip for me
  4. Excited for potential SNOW!!!!

    Looks like a real [PoorWordUsage] Shoot for many of us. SItting in a cold rain sucks...then sitting in a cold windy reain...really sucks....rather have the snow..or bring my shotgun and go find some ducks. Any rain after Halloween is just a waste of good snow.
  5. Excited for potential SNOW!!!!

    Hutch Johnson of KVLY just posted this....... Expect breezy, cloudy but mild weather this evening for all of the trick-or-treaters. A MAJOR winter storm is looking more likely for portions of the Valley this weekend!! Several inches of snow, wind and cold will hit North Dakota and northern Minnesota Don't forget you Southerners...and City guys..it is normally 10-20 degrees cooler in the Northern 1/3 of the State...what is rain for some may be snow for others..... But....it is time to go get some candy now
  6. Excited for potential SNOW!!!!

    I look at 4 sources...Accuweather.....never correct......Weather Channel/Weather.com.......maybe 50%.......NOAA...about 75% or Better.....and Too Tall Tom Szymanski formerly of KVLY in Fargo now out of Bismark....at 80% or better So... I am thinking rain Saturday...hopefully changing over to snow around 3:30 pm North of Bemidji...or so I hope
  7. Am I the only one who hates Daylite Savings Time?

    I like it......wish it was year round.
  8. First year hunting was the year of the Halloween Blizzard....so I "grew up" hunting in deep snow my first few years. Lately there has been very little snow during our rifle season.....but....I am daydreaming about snowflakes and a cold NW on Saturday......and waking up to a white ground on Sunday. Can't beat the first snow of the year from your deer stand....love it!!!!
  9. Deer Camp Name and Your Tradition

    Not going to post the name...cuz it includes parts of our names....and we don't need PETA and the "antis" burning our place down, we have had several fires already.....it also has a corporate ring to it....the "Occupy Wallstreet" crowd may think we a bigtime 1% corporate farmers. Traditions: Biscuits and Gravy.....Boiled Dinner.....Stew....Chili...Vikings games...and cocktails
  10. I think I will be able to work something out......it is just interesting to see the passion and priorities we all have. For those saying to discuss with your family.....well....I will invite you over to chat with the 3 yo then...see where that goes...I hope you like Thomas the Train, and we all know how a spouse can be. Anyways...this fun and thanks for you opinions and thanks for sharing what you have done.

  12. PLEASE DON'T SHOOT THIS BUCK ON HALLOWEEN!

    Better watch out for the "Shiners" on Halloween night

  14. Looks like we are a bunch of "Quiters"
  15. About 7 months there....worked at a different outfit for job #2 before. So it is the first hunting season...but it was clearly requested and planned around, pretty much from day 1.
