  1. Deer Stand Lunch?

    I love that movie and it's actually part of the reason I was interested in the product to begin with!
  2. Deer Stand Lunch?

    This year I'm bringing a meal in a bottle called Soylent. I'm rocking braces this year, so brushing in the stand isn't something I want to do https://www.soylent.com/

    I have trail camp pics of some yearlings sparring.
  4. Trail Cam Deer-Elk-Moose Pics or Video

    Worst year for buck I've ever had. Just a couple of yearlings. Did catch this fisher though.
  5. I shoot federal premium trophy copper in my .270 They also have that in 30-06 https://www.federalpremium.com/ammunition/rifle/bullet/trophy-copper/vital-shok-trophy-copper/

    Only small bucks so far. First one I have in the process of peeling velvet. The date is wrong, btw.
  7. I'm still not sure if I'll go for a fixed or variable scope when I get around to it. Maybe just match the nikon prostaff that's on my .270
  8. Just in case you haven't seen the regs. Curious to know what scopes you all plan to use this season.

    That's the reply I received from the dnr today. From: MN_Info (DNR) <info.dnr@state.mn.us>Date: Wed, Aug 2, 2017 at 10:17 AMSubject: RE: deer tag question Good Morning Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR. Yes, you can take the doe with your primary archery tag in the hunters choice area. Once you take from a hunters choice area you cannot tag any more deer in a hunters choice, lottery or bucks only area. You than can take deer with your firearm or muzzle loader in a managed or intensive harvest areas. In the managed area you could take two deer. Here are a few examples: You could take one deer off your primary firearms license and then during the muzzle loader season take a second deer from the managed area using your primary muzzle loader tag. Or you take a deer with your primary firearms license than purchase a bonus tag(which s doe only) and take the second deer in that area with the firearm bonus tag. Two deer from a managed area. Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Have a great day, To: MN_Info (DNR) <info.dnr@state.mn.us> Subject: deer tag question Hi, I hunt several areas/seasons and want to know if I can shoot a doe with my primary archery tag in zone 273 (hunter's choice) but still tag a buck (or doe) in zone 240 (managed) with my firearm or muzzleloader main tag. Not sure if tagging a doe with my primary archery tag stops me from taking a buck with my gun/muzzy tag. Thanks
  10. Thanks for the input. I think this property is more work than it's worth!
  11. Was looking at some hunting land but there was no where to park my truck. Anyone here familiar with having a field approach made and how much that may cost?
  12. I couldn't find any info on the DNR site about when and how applicants will be notified of the 2017 elk draw, so I emailed them to find out. They said only successful applicants are notified by mail and that the date should be within the first two weeks of July.
  13. Great to hear. Thanks for the info!
  14. I'm getting a new jacket for next year's gun season (and late season bow hunting) and the sitka fanatic is on my short list. I'm curious to hear opinions from anyone that's used it, especially on how warm, quiet and durable it's been for you.
