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.

    •   Just outlaw anything that might hurt someone.    If it saves just one life..... Do it for the children....   And they want us to believe these 2 political parties are different. 
    • Luckily for me my neighbor across the road bought a hive with 2500 or 25,000 bees, I forget, last summer. Have bees everywhere here in the summer and we plant a lot of flowers and will be increasing that this summer to help the little dudes. Even got a jar of honey from him last year!
    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
    • Buy the best door you can afford. I installed a steel clad Peach Tree door on the front of my place mainly because it faces south and there is a big temp difference during the day. I paid 600.00 for it, not much for a door these days but thirty years ago I had the father in law scratching his head when we put it in. My back door is out of the sun and I went with an all glass Morgan door, 300.00 I think it was still looks almost brand new after all of these years. Love the light that it lets it. Both have adjustable thresholds and we keep an eye on the weather-stripping. Stay away from the box store bargain doors unless it is rental property. Another thing is don't go cheap on the lock sets, you get what you pay for. Also reinforce the jam on the lock side while you are replacing the door.
