Last day of the MN season!!

10 posts in this topic

I am archery hunting but for anyone with an archery tag or the H season gun tag, either way, tomorrow is the last day of the season.

I have to admit I will still be out chasing a tom, but its been worth it. I've hunted 11 of the 13 days so far during the archery season in 4 different spots.

I've got one last chance before its tag soup. Good luck to all the last day hunters and congrats to all those who have connected this season in MN and elsewhere. The stories have been fantastic!!

Finally! The frustration is over, I can get some sleep and spend a little more quality time with my business.

I won't say the frustration is over since I did not harvest a bird, but it will be nice to finally sleep in. I don't have to be to work till 5am tomorrow. That means I'm gonna get an extra hour of sleep.

Well the last afternoon was uneventful for me. I did have a group of turkeys on the wrong side of the property line that wouldn't cross over. The end of turkey season is bittersweet for me. I wish I could still be chasing the longbeards but chasing eyes is very nice as well. laugh

I will say my last day was exciting. I had the same group of 2 toms and 4 hens hang out in the usual spot all morning. They wanted none of what I was selling so I left empty-handed. Harvesting a bird is icing on the cake, but the excitement is in watching these birds and listen to them gobble their heads off for hours at a time.

One of my last times out, I had 6 longbeards all within 50-60 yards of me, all gobbling at the same time...pretty cool! None of them got to ride in my truck. frown

Those spurs and beards are going to be just that much longer next year!

Andy, we worked at that development I took yo too twice this week and both times we had Tom's within 100 yards of us struttion for hens. The builder called to let me know there were 5 long beards in the backyard of the model on Tuesday. I was so busy this week I couldn't even make time to get out once more to try and get one witht he bow... I guess there is always next year.

Good Luck!

Ken

    • 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.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
