Always excited for another archery season. More days afield looking for a few does to eat and maybe a dandy buck ta boot.

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.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. Plus lots to do around the Brainerd area if you don't want to sit in the camper on a rainy day. Last weekend we ran up to Walker to Reeds and pick a gal of Blue Berries on the way.
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
