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

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
