Sitting at work with the fever

24 posts in this topic

Is anyone else having an absolutely impossible time trying to stay productive at work this week? I've been "sitting in the woods" all day and I haven't left my desk. Can't wait to hit the road Thursday night!!!!

I second your "sickness". My wife says I am completely useless at home! Everything is about the hunt!

Normally I can't get anything done but I am slammed right now and on Vacation all next week so I am busting arse! The only good thing about that is taking some time out to visit this HSOforum and the time flys by.

I'm with you too...

I've been fortunate enough that I've been able to hunt nearly every weekend since early goose season. If not chasing birds around with dog and my buddies, I've sat in the woods with my bow.

My wife made a comment that she feels widowed because I've been gone alot hunting this season Luckily enough I've put the blame back on the Minnesota DNR, and tell her..."They set the dates for these 'Openers'. So don't blame me!" laughlaugh

I told those in my office right up front I'd be pretty worthless this week, fortunately they didn't say: What's new?

Also fortunately I'm bowhunting every night but Wednesday & have Thursday & Friday off to bowhunt.

BigWade, I had a son right before the season last year as well and only hunted one day. I am so excited for this season because I have 8 days scheduled in the next 3 weeks. Work seems so slow, but watching the weather and this site is keeping my focus on my computer rather than walking around talking about it.

Here is how my opening morning is going to go (so I have planned): Get into the stand around 5am. Sit and watch all the other folks pile into the woods around 6:15am and push all the deer to me. At 7:27am a 12 point, 165 class deer is going to approach from the left, presenting the perfect shot opportunity. And the Hornady SST is going to do the job allowing me to take all day to get him out of the woods, register and brag to all my buddies about it. That is the script, I will let you know how the play turns out.

I do the same thing before every opener, I find it impossible to do anything the Friday before opener so I might as well get there early and hunt.

Friday is going to be like your kid's last day at school. Nothing is going to get done.

I'm ducking early if there isn't enough to do.

I told my wife I didn't feel well this morning she asked what was wrong and I said, my neck is swelling up and I keep seeing deer, said I might have to go up to the farm today, didn't go over so well.... grin so I'll just sit here and day dream about it I guess

I have been sitting at working watching the deer on the RDHC live cam. Helps pass the time. I watched 2 bucks scrap it out the other day.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
