Scarey spookey!

Too many hunters looking for squirrels and other small game that don't know what they're shooting at and shoot bowhunters in the tree's!

It happened at a wildlife management area just north of the cities a few years back. And I had encounters with small game hunters walking under my tree stand only to scare the pooh out of them when I whispered to them asking if they scared any deer in the woods!

I no longer hunt anywhere near the metro area unless i'm hunting private land which I do now!

If you do hunt public land close to the metro, put some orange on going to and leaving the woods. Also leave some orange around your treestand like marking tape halfway up the tree so anybody can see there is a hunter in that tree! smile

Good Luck!

how is some of the public land around there?

mnguy,

There is someplace around the metro for you but Lord only knows where it is. Even the better public ground is kept hush-hush unless you want a Ripley style hunt every time you go out.

This is something you have to do your homework on, as in looking at maps, driving roads, talking to landowners, asking friends, etc, etc.

If this falls in your lap, buy a powerball ticket. grin

Best of luck.

A lot better than the weekend, but there will still be some competition. As mentioned above, get some good public land maps and do some scouting. I tend to lean towards the smaller plots versus the big Carlos Avery type popular spots. Or you could start knocking on doors, if you're only after meat you have a decent shot.

Ill second the knock on doors technique. A lot of folks take off work and have the same plan to hunt during the week.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
