another opener on the way!

6 posts in this topic

Sooo.... last year I had some of the best pheasant hunting I have ever experienced. I sure hope this year is close to last years. DNR says 24 percent down; but that doesn't bother me much, I think It should still be a pretty fun season. I think I may have to work slightly harder than last year but I know there are still birds around. I let a "few" get past me last season and hope they made it through the winter. What do you guys expect from this upcoming season? Going to try some new places? try some new tactics to push the fields; work the dogs? let me know what you guys are planning or thinkg for this season!!!

I am excited for the opener. Will be Season 2 for the dog. Am wondering about all the crops still in though. Like you said will have to work a little more, but sure glad the season is next weekend, the dog can sense something and is bouncing off the walls.

WAY WAY behind on crops in SW MN. I only know of ONE guy who's done with his beans and he said his corn isn't close to ready to come out. I don't think it will be worth a hoot down here until November.

It is tough to keep the dog out of the corn. When he gets near the edge and smells all he does, in he wants to go in.

We will hunt one day next weekend and then off to the Dakotas. I here there are a lot of flowers still standing there. The best days are about 2-3 weeks away from opener....their cover needs to be thinned out.

The crops are going to work out perfect for me. I will miss the MN opener this year since I will be in Texas. But I will make it back for a good Tuesday evening hunt in MN and can't wait. hopefully, this will give the farmers some good drying days and some progress can be made by the time I return.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
