Help please...?!

9 posts in this topic

Alrighty guys and gals im in a dilema. i have two spots that i can go to archery hunt that i know there is a good possibility of pulling a nice buck or a nice doe out of. one of the spots i dont have a stand and i sit on a stump and the ohter spot i have four stands that are pretty perminant. The other night i was at the spot sitting on the stump and i saw a nice doe but didnt have a clear shot so i let it by. and today my dad and i went to the other spot and found huge buck tracks and a lot of doe tracks that are fresh. so i guess my question is, with the weather gunna be cold tomorrow morning and what not where do i go because i think the bucks at both spots come by in the morning?!

I think you think to much.

Play the wind as well as your gut and you will do fine. But mostly play the wind.

After you've got the wind figured out, which spot has the best eats for them? When the weather turns colder, they need extra food to stay warm. That's where you'll find the does and the bucks will be right behind them.

Agree with all the others, play the wind!.. Dont hunt a stand just because you think its better, if you get busted, you could ruin that stand for a while?..

My theory is the wind should #1 dictate which stand to sit in and #2 where the food source is, #3 inconjunction to bedding area.

Start with #1 and don't over think the process!!!!

i agree with you all but other than the wind i think he has to look at where these deer are in the morning. I have numerous spots where i know deer are in the morning but the problem is being able to get into the spot without spooking the deer. So yes play the wind, but also look at how easily you are able to get into the set without spooking deer

    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
    • Ya I don't know do I dare say I almost like it better than deer hunting... Cant sit with him tonight but came up with a game plan wouldn't be surprised if he sticks one tonight  
    • I am still hunting yet Moose. I go to Nebraska in a few weeks. I am archery in mn. starting to see more active birds. Going to wait and shoot a tom. Nice having 4 birds already on the team. How does a guy post pictures right from your cell phone to here so I can post Dillons info on his tom.
    • Went out today in the metro areas without any luck. Didn't even see any ramps in the usual spots, and I thought they were earlier than the morels.
