I hear that. On the way home from leech lake last weekend we saw a buck standing on the side of the road near camp ripley. Antlers were just coming over the top of the ears, and it has time to get bigger. That got me thinking about the season.

Anybody know the dead line for ripley? Is it Augest? I could find out but this is easier.

Same here, at just about any time or any where my mind can jump into bowhunting mode. I can be in another state driving by some land I know I will never hunt but I just can't help but size up the hunting potential.

After the food plots are in and trail cameras are up one can't help but look forward to the New season. It's a lot of fun to check the bucks out right now...seems like they could all be Booners at this point.

I haven't even bought my new bow yet. I gotta get going on that. Getting a new bow every year is kind of a pain in the butt. Going to keep whatever I get this year for a while.

Don't wait too long. Your gonna wanna practice for awhile to get comfortable with it.

You only have 94 days left. I would recomend at least 2-3 months of shooting before you hunt with it.

This off season has been one of the toughest for me in a long time. Not sure why exactly, but I can't seem to get it out of my head. Hopefully chasin' muskies for a while will make me forget the upcoming season for a little while (although it certainly won't make me more sane). crazy

Oh no not the dreaded fall wedding! I think I have one of those this year, nothing but lost hunting time. I made sure my wedding didn't conflict with anything important. We got married in early spring before fishing opener, I know I don't like to burn up a summer weekend going to a wedding, and of course the fall was off limits for me.

I am getting the itch as well. I took the bow out for practice this weekend. I haven't used it since December and I did something that I have not done in five years. I got kissed from my string. I am black and blue from my elbow to almost my wrist. My buddies should have a good time razzing me on this one.

lol there is no good time for a wedding. fall= hunting, spring= fishing openers, summer= vacations, and winter= ice fishing

I can not wait till opener. Boss and i were talking about when harvest would be this year. He said well...hopefully around first part of sept. I told him well it better be done by Sept 19 or you will be having a hard time getting me into the combine for the first few days. Hopefully the bugs aren't as bad this year and I can get out of the ground blind for more then just a day or two.

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
