I think especially for some of the newer archers, scent control and playing the wind would be a very informative podcast. Many times a archer can do all the right things as far as equipment and practice but if one does not set up right with the wind and use this to their advantage, there will probably be no shots all fall.

Many times, simply using latex or rubber gloves to move a branch or two can make the difference in not leaving any or at least as little scent as possible around the area one is going to hunt.

Just a thought Dietz.

Hope this helps.....

tips for hunting on public land

local archery shop owner interviews- leagues, equipment, facilities, upcoming events

Food Plots- types, process, equipment needed, best for MN / WI

success stories from local hunters- what equipment did they use, did they plant any food plots, was the location private or public land, did they use a scouting camera, a rangefinder, what time of day, amt ot time in the woods, etc

Selecting a stand or hunting blind

And how to use the internet (Google earth, fishingminnesota, local county GIS interactive sites) to improve your hunting success.

Thanks

Thinking of shop archery staff, I do believe I could talk with Neil at Cabin Fever Sporting goods and he may be willing to talk equipment and shooting.

Neil knows his equipment very well.

Food plot stuff wouldn't do to much god at this time of year, although it could help for next year.

How about Tips on field dressing and butchering, some newcomers maybe have never cut into a big game animal before, and don't know where to start.

that is a great idea especially with gun season not too far away...I for one have always brought my deer in to have processed but this year I am going to attempt to butcher my own and do most of my own processing...or maybe there are videos out there that the Mod's or other pro's would recommend...

Another vote for field dressing and butchering. Thanks!

This is my third season coming up- I got a Doe last year and all I had to go on was some instructions I downloaded from the internet to dress her. It went well, but It was quite dicey.

I would like to see how to distinquish a bedding area and feeding area in nothing more than hard woods and oak trees like my area in Brainerd. Trying to find where they are moving to and from is the hardest thing to pin point to figure out where to set stands.

Very good idea. I know plenty of deer hunters that would like to learn how and its not that tough. One can really save some moola.

I am sure this has been covered in the past...but there always seems to be a lot of interest from people new to the sport about proper fitting equipment, draw length..draw weight..etc. Might not hurt to have a couple minutes on the topic. I like all the other suggestions as well.

Thanks

    • 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.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
