How do you spend your hunting season?

4 posts in this topic

Is it run and gun or do you all enjoy a more heritage style?

Part of it to me should be teaching others quality hunting. I took my wife who is a non hunter with me once. We both had a great time. She was scarred out of her wits though...LOL

Being that I tree stand hunt we opted to find a downed pine. From there, every little sound[especially those red squirrels] had her moving her head around like a deer showing it's alertness...LOL

I really get a kick out of those times and that to me is very worth my time hunting.

Good luck as the season aproaches {yes, 3 months till bow opener, early goose and dove!!!} be a good person and try to think about whom you could enjoy your hunt with. As with all sports It's in sharing. And we should never expect anyone to be like ourselves, as we are all individual.

Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine..Now go get started!

Get re-aquainted with your guns and bows atlatels and slingshots.

And take someone with.

I dont push myself like I used to I prefer to hunt in a relaxed state of mind an take it all in. My son has Aspergers syndrom an likes to ice fish but dosent want to hunt so I only push him as far as just coming out a sitting with me once in a while, he dosent want to kill anything, I started to take his best freind with last year on early season doe an he took his first deer, this year I might graduate him to regular firearms season, an build a blind big enough to fit three so we can all go, if my son sees his freind do it then he might get the calling if not, thats just the way he rolls.

I brought my wife out deer hunting for the first time five years ago. We bought a two man deer stand so I could sit with her. I remember it being 10 below that opener but she was a trooper, and she ended up shooting a spike. That spike was the biggest trophy I ever seen, if you know what I mean.

She has not missed a season sense.

I also bring my nephew out but he is yet to close the deal. I am teaching him how to skin, quarter, and debone a deer after you shoot it. With the warm temps the last few openers I do this the day I shoot them. I am also showing him how to make sausage. I feel these skills may end up lost with so many people opting to bring them in for processing. I feel if he hunts as an adult and brings them in at least he knows how its done.

I don't hunt near as hard as I use to but I still hunt many days in the fall. My mornings are for me and I drink coffe and maybe once in 5 days I will hunt for a few hours. Now, the evenings are that special time for me bow hunting when I hunt pretty hard.

Seems I shoot just as many deer as before but I don't put near the pressure on myself any longer.

It's all for fun and maybe a big one.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
