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

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
