WHAT? you have the fall hunting season, then its hardwater time. 4 1/2 months of ice fishing, no bugs. who has the time to get down in the dumps? confusedsmirksmilegrin

The only thing I get depressed about is that there's too much to do and not enough time. Height of the rut right now and it's a beautiful day to be out on the water.

For years I've told my hubby that he seems depressed after deer season is over. I think its because he spends at least 6 wks getting ready for it and dreaming about it and when its over and you have to pack the "stuff" away--it's DEPRESSING!!!

thats why you need a project. such as modding your ice house. it keeps ice fishing on your brain but not thinking of the actual ice fishing.. its the only thing keeping me occupied untill the water freezes over. what do you all do to keep your mind off of being on the ice.

Ha-Ha he doesn't need another pastime. Now if he were in to home improvement projects - I'd encourage that.

Well to me guys, it doesnt matter what season it is for me.

I love ice fishing more than summer fishing but I will take eather.

The spring brings awesome fishing and it always feels good to bring the boat out, then we get summer and its hot and the bass are going nuts and fishing is good, then comes fall you get good hunting and the fall bite for muskies and pike can be awesome, then winter the best fishing in my opinion anywas

I understand how people feel if they aren't into ice fishing or any other type of winter sports. Before I got into ice fishing years ago I use to hate when winter time got here because open water fishing was done and would have to wait till the end of winter to go again. This was depressing for me because it seemed like winter took forever to end, now that I do ice fish winter goes by too quick.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
