Missed an 8 pointer

With my truck! On my way home tonight from some evening muskie fishing, and dumb thing stopped right in my lane and looked right at me as I was stopped waiting for him to pass. I am thinking that he was chasing something in heat though, he had some serious foam dripping from his mouth!

I did think about hitting him though! I have good insurance, and I can't bowhunt this year due to shoulder surgery...

I guess the only real reason for this post though was I am sure he was chasing a hot doe with all that frothing, I sure wish I was able to be out in the woods. For those of you out there, get one for me!

Can't shoot that either. I have thought of it, but I am fairly certain that I wouldn't be able to get it. I'm not really disabled, just injured I suppose. Either way I wouldn't be albe to lift it up to shoot it properly anyway.

you can get a 1 year crossbow license. in fact, that's what they give out most of the time anyway.

wait, you can fish for muskies but you can't shoot a crossbow? man, those lures are huge, i would think musky fishing gives a better shoulder workout then even bow hunting.

I didn't get so lucky avoiding a deer. I nailed a fawn last night. actually, the fawn nailed the side of my truck. no harm, to the truck. in fact, it scraped some of the mud off the side and now there's a clean streak where the deer hit smile

Ive actually heard that its pretty easy to get a crossbow permit as well, and a medical reason is good enough. Ive also heard that anyone with glasses or contacts can easily get a permit to put a scope on a muzzle loader!!

    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
