7 posts in this topic

I tried looking for BOWHUNTERS EDUCATION CLASSES tooo late. there was only a few left and the only one near here was in st paul and it was a full class. does anyone know of any certified instructors that do a HOME SCHOOL BOW HUNTERS CLASS even if its for a fee. It would be me and my brother. penasoccer at o o h a y

We can't charge a fee for hosting a class. I personally hosted or helped host three different classes this year. Each one is a commitment of many hours. Hours we'd really rather be fishing or shooting or scouting or hunting ourselves.

Those of you that waited too long, or couldn't be bothered with driving too far or sitting for so long while you were doing your own things, well I think you may just have to wait for another year.

Sorry.

I know what you mean we put on two a year one in march and one in august and I still get the phone call sob stories. One of the biggest turn offs to putting my personal time in on that rather than spending time with my family fishing or shooting bow. there are plenty of classes throughout the summer and winter, ONe thing I know forsure is that the fall ones fill up fast. we have 45 this fall and 40 in spring.

I have to plan for the earliest classes next year. I wonder if minnesota has RECIPROCAL (spelling) bowhunters classes? Meaning do they accept other states bow hunters training? I might go that way. Its not a necessity for me to have bow hunters education since im not applying for any special hunts but I Yearn for more education, tips, tricks, and safety. Ill join the ranks next year. For now ill keep learning from this site and the great people from here

I believe the class is a national thing. If you take a class in another state, most states should accept that. However, I do believe MBRB wants you to take one in Minnesota. Not sure though. Anyone?

thanks for that info If you dont mind me asking where do you two DonBo and MnMuzzleloader teach your class? I guess im better off getting a class here in minnesota considering the fact that they might go into some of the LOCAL MN laws and stuff.

All the classes are listed in the MN DNR HSOforum. The next one I am involved with is usually in March at the Chilakoot Bowhunters clubhouse near Somerset, WI. It is one of only a few that are done in just one day. Check back later in early spring and I can narrow that down for you.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
