  1. Good luck finding any today......
  2. Norway Maple tree damage, need opinions

    If it doesn't blow down today, it's probably all good.
  3. Mower needed

    The way the weather is going, you should have plenty of time to decide....
  4. Mossy Oak Gun Skin Application Photos

    Looks good to me!
  5. Maybe just a simple box call might be best for a novice. Whatever you get I would listen to calls on the internet and practice imitating them.

    Exactly why we are not likely to see deer populations as high as some here would like.
  7. That's going to be a back saver!

    I think it was a holder for some sort of ice fishing electronics. All I remember is it looked like you used a beaver to cut the handle hole.....
  8. That's going to be a back saver!

    Looks much better than your last woodworking project......

    I completely agree with most of this and that is exactly why I am against things like APR's and doing away with other hunting traditions. I don't think doing things to "manage the herd" just so we can shoot them sheds a good light on deer hunting in general. I think most anti-hunters and non-hunters are turned off by the fact that it seems so many hunters just want to shoot deer for the sport or the trophy. I do think most people can understand harvesting meet for the freezer though. I'm not sure that most anti's or non-hunters even realize there is public infighting among hunters. OK, maybe the anti's do because they are more tuned in, looking for ways to undermine the hunting community but I think that by and large if you do not travel in those circles, you don't hear the news.

    Here's a heckling meme for ya.......

    I agree with ANYFISH2 but you guys do realize that hunters are a tool used to control deer populations, right? I'm not too sure that you can get non-hunters on board with increasing deer populations so they can hit them with their Mercedes......

    Actually, the majority of the state's population does not hunt deer but most do drive cars so generally most people do not want more or larger deer. It's not just the voice of hunters that count.

    Improvements for you are not necessarily improvements for everyone. Who advised you to do that? I didn't hear anyone give out that advice. No one called you a name at all. Seems like you are being a little dramatic today especially since it is the "meat hunter" label that is really disparaging these days. So you want changes only where it will benefit your way of hunting?
  14. Attn: MN Gun Deer Hunters

    Ummmmmm, I think you should read your posts and Wanderer's posts again.....

    I would also be willing to bet that the majority of people pushing for APR's and to end party hunting are also big advocates of catch and release fishing. If that's the case why not just go shed hunting? There's no crowds, you can take any size antlers you want and you can even use a dog. You can mount them all over your house and brag to your friends without ever having to shoot a deer.
