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

    • Looking for a Wild win tonight, I don't think Kemper is going to get the start in this important game. I don't think anyone likes the five day layoff. Typical got to mess with something that works instead of just playing. Wild will come out of the break with a lot of games to play and little time off to rest anyone.
    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
