We will be back home in Northome hunting with the family. The kids will also be going out again this year in Grandpa's Mansion! grin

Last year I had my daughter out hunting in it and she fell asleep for about an hour, woke up and asked any deer yet, I said NO, then she fell back asleep. Little did she know I took a picture of here deer hunting at age 8 and sleeping.

THat is what it is all about people, getting the kids involved and seeing the smile on the wife's face when she shoots another big buck! Thanks to me giving her my stand that I had for years and being very successful. Eventually it will go to one of the kids so they can have a successful hunt and hang a deer on the wall!

Sign looked good last weekend and can't wait to go up and get the camera to see what is around the new stand we built last weekend. Dad is starting to get out of the old ways and listen to the younger generation a little! whistle

Good luck this season and be safe!

Woodman,

Way to go!

I'm looking forward to spending the opener in the Fifty Lakes area. We are going up tomorrow to set a couple stands and look around a little - then maybe a little duck shootin!

I finally got my self interest out of the way early this year with my two archery does and have a late South Dakota hunt planned where I can concentrate on a nice buck.

I'm stoked that I can completely concentrate on my two girls getting the best season I can give them this year. The oldest is looking for her first buck and the youngest has been working on her bow skills. She's not ready to take a deer yet, but we can go through the motions this season to get her prepared for next season.

We'll see how it all works out. smile

tednugefan,

I know where you are then. That is some nice deer country and it is a totally a different hunt then most people get in Minnesota. My buddies hunt farms, push small wood acres and get plenty of deer. Where we are it is the "Big Woods" and while my buddies know which deer they are going to shoot it is not like that up there. My buddies laugh at the 8 pointers I shoot because they say you should wait for bigger. I get that but my last 4 deer have been really nice bucks especially for public hunting. I hunt actually north of Fairbanks. You probably know where just don't want to say where on here but near the big lake with no public access but by ATV down a Forestry Road where people catch walleyes. On the buck board look for the same name twice (Dad and I have the same name). Last year I shot an 8 pointer 188 pounds. Big deer most places but like 50th place up there! My dad shot a 9 pointer 209 pounds and did not even break the top 20! My brother was 1 pound from the average wt. deer.

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.  
    • Inaugural concert attendance (estimated):   Obama 2009: 400,000 Trump 2017: 10,000   Also Trump nodded off because it was so great.
    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
    • That a shot at me being former military?
