another opener on the way!

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
