Pheasant Hunting Weekend of November 1 & 2

11 posts in this topic

My son and I will be heading down to SW MN on Saturday morning, November 1st. Just wondering if anybody wants to get together and do a little pheasant hunting. We have a 2 year old Britt that loves to hunt. We like a party of 3-4. Anybody interested?

Hoffman, Herman, Norcross, Donnelly, Chokio.....around there or further south. We are coming from the Baxter/Brainerd area so will leave in the morning and drive back in the evening.

Hey mnuser, I am orignally from Norcross, I will be hunting this weekend (finally) The reports I have heard are not too good, it sounds like the numbers are way down. Also there is still a lot of the crops in and it has been raining for the last 18 hours so, it is hard to say how things will turn out. Shoot me your email and I can give you an update.

My family has some land about 2 miles from Norcross. It is along the Mustinka (sp) River.

I was down over opener. We saw a few birds but most were young. I was out in ND for five days and we saw a ton. I wish the drive was less and the license was good for the whole season.

Thanks. Keep me updated.

We would be glad to join you but our hunting group is going back to ND for the second part of our license this weekend. Perhaps later in the season? By the way, I live in the Brainerd-Baxter area so would be easy for travel.

ReelTimes,

Drop me an email sometime and we can run down for the day. We head down early in the morning and come back in the evening. It is just me, my 11 year old son and the hunt'in dog, Beau. Once it gets cold, the 11 year old bails on me.

Good luck this weekend in ND. Where in ND do you go?

I will drop you an email. In ND, we will be down by Ellendale, which is well south of Jamestown down by the SD border.

Hey MNUser - I'm thinking about committing to hooking up with you, your son and your Britt if you're still planning on making the trip. It would be a 400 mile round trip for me and my Britt to meet up with you. We have a couple of spots close to home we've been hunting, but, we would like to head west or maybe even down south of Marshall while the weather is good and gas is reasonable. Let me know if you are still planning on making the trip.

Hey Wild Willie,

Nick and I are hooking up with another guy and his son on Saturday. We will be going done a few more times this Fall/Winter. Keep in touch and we will see what we can arrange.

I'm surprised how much response I got. I would love to make some other hunting friendships. It is always nice meeting new people.

JIM

    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.    
    • Hi all,   Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model?   Thanks!   Ref  
    • Which size are you referring to? 
    • How much current do the battery pumps draw?
