Who's Going Out And Who Can Not Wait?

27 posts in this topic

So who are the FM members going out for Gun season this year?

I figure I would get a good old thread started to get us pumped and see which FM’ers are going to be out in the fields and woods this year.

Anyone getting excited yet? grin

I sure am wink.

I am hunting the same old patch of private land close to home, that I have been hunting for the last 6 years or so. I never get anything great, but sure love just going. I always buy a license to support the cause, but never know if I am going till a couple days before hand.

Just like last year, I was digging threw the threads and posts in one of FM's most awesome forums (Deer-Bear-Elk-Moose) and it got me pumped enough once again to go out, get skunked, but have some good old fashion fun cool.

Yep, I did not build that deluxe tree cabin I had planned on doing this year whistle. Never got around to planting that food plot either frown , but "Old Trusty" checked out ok tonight and is still ready to hold my bum for another MN deer opener wink.

Anyone else getting the bug?????

Well Shack....if you are just getting the bug, you are months behind most of us!! Nothing like Deer Camp! Why do you think I have been writing all those chapters in The Deer Camp story thread. Gotta deal with the excitement somehow. Good luck to you and to all. This weekend is one of the best times of year, if not the best. Be safe everyone.... as far as that "itch" you were talking about... mine is more like a full body rash!!! grin

Yep Coach, your thread is awesome and a big reason I am going this weekend grin.

Unfortunately, I have too many bugs in the fire and deer is one them that creeps up for me at the last minute these days wink , more so with the help of FM.

From buying ice gear the last couple weeks, Sturgeon fishing only a hand full of weeks ago, an awesome pheasant hunting trip a couple weeks back, buying a new sled, winter get ready around the house stuff, work, working on my boat trailer and getting up to ML before ice up (plus a bunch of other junk not listed), I just came upon my yearly deer bug pretty much today grin.

Gott’a go deer hunting though and I figure I would start a good old roll call thread grin!

I think this is some of the most painstaking hours of work. Can't wait for the clock to hit 3:30 so I can go home, load up and head off to deer camp. Spend tomorrow setting up camp, get the fire going and [PoorWordUsage] with the others in camp. Then hit it hard til Tuesday. Hopefully my son will get his first deer this weekend. Think I am more nervous for him crazy than excited for myself. Either way.......I LOVE DEER CAMP!!!! grin

I'm so ready to head out tomorrow, the only bad thing is that I have to wait until tomorrow. I've been pretty much worthless at work as well. I'm trying all sorts of little things to try and keep me from going crazy like posting on FM and writing up the list of things to bring along smile

I also took the whole week off.

Tommorrow I'm hoping to get out duck hunting in the morning, then walk for some roosters in the afternoon. Then it's deer hunting either untill I drop one or the season ends.

You cant beat this time of year.

I am worthless at work and home this week. My wife told me/asked me last night if I did the stuff she apparently asked me to do, I said you never told me that....well if I wasn't so concerned about deer hunting...I just laughed and said you'll never understand...then this morning on my way to work up hwy 61 from cottage grove there were 2 dead bucks (recent roadkills) 1 was a 9 point and the other was a 7 point...I almost turned around and loaded up but have to wait until tomorrow.....I might have to get me a real set of rattlin horns on my way home tonight... grin

I am sure many are waiting and would like to leave work early grin

If you can see this at work, it is some good humor to pass the time grin :

Some I am sure have seen it before, but it is still funny!

granted ive never been at a true deer camp because I hunt back home about 5 miles from my dads place but I cant wait to go out. even with all the duck hunting ive been doing. I didnt get my fix of archery hunting so shotgun season will have to do. sad part is ive only been at my job for over a year so I have little seniority so I have to wait until sunday to hunt and Ive only got through tuesday. good luck to all and stay safe

I ahve had the fever for awhile now. At least this crappy rainy weather is helping me stay in the office and somewhat on task. Although if it quits I am grabbing my bow and heading for the woods. Gun opener is just around the corner...

I can't wait. I have had my bags packed and guns cleaned for 2 weeks. All my clothes are outside flying in the breeze trying to get that last scent out. I head up after class tonight for 5 days of hanging with my uncles and watching my younger causins try to hang with the big boys. I love this time of year and the hunting season. I wouldn't trade deer hunting in cold and snow for a spot on a island beach in a million years. Heres to good hunting and great times

Be safe out there!!

    • It the particular case of the poor integration of immigrants in Sweden and the EU in general, that information is publicly available and has been for some time, so probably isn't something the Intelligence folks are making a point of.   Likewise, the mainstream media doesn't seem to be making much of it.      On the other hand, we have the reports in the media that the Intelligence folks have allegedly stopped telling Trump stuff.   What are they allegedly not telling him?   Are they deliberately trying to make him fail?          
    • This has probably been beaten to death on here but....after the recent trip to Winnipeg and driving on rough ice all weekend, I'm reconsidering the auger mount on my ATV.  I have one of the Kolpin ones right now that is 2 thinner pieces of metal that stand up off the front rack.  The only way to hold the auger in is with bungees and the metal is thin and wears on the auger at the contact points.   I'm thinking I could work some 2x6's or something into a decent mount for fairly cheap.     Anybody have pics of a homemade one?   Or anybody recommend the Digger mount?  
    • So how did you get the livewell overflow out? We've had some problems with ours & have toyed with the idea of replacing it. We don't really want to tear all the floor up though. 
    •   Yeah., just not the same as Frankie. Try typing in all CAP'S!
    • Not last year but the year before that we had one that followed us all through deer season.  He would hop up on our knee while we were sitting there, and the little bastard would grab my glove and try to run off with it.  He was almost dinner many nights.
    • Saw this topic and the link to Rock Auto. I ordered up left and right headlight assembly's for my 04 Suburban. They fit right in and even included bulbs. $58.00 to the door delivered for the pair. Cannot beat the price and quality looks fine- better than the old dump I replaced.  Now do I replace the daytime running lens assembly's and fog lamps? Ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday 2 days early.
    • They have the 20% off sale(some exclusions) going on this week at Gander. Just need the code from the page, though Rogers just uses one at the counter, so I didn't need it. They got more fishing stuff out now, so I loaded up on some Missle Destroyers!
    • I got the TYC Fog light installed last week. Worked good and looks better than the busted out one! I would of done it months ago if I knew it was that cheap and easy to do.
    •     Oh stop it. How was I to know? You'll just get Dell all fluffed up again and we'll turn THIS into another sillytown.
    • There are a few places to stay that are not too far from the lake.  Hamilton House in Winnipeg Beach is good, a lot of guys stay at the Casino on the East side,  there is a new hotel in Selkirk that is pretty nice and has lots of rooms and breakfast.     Nobody plows roads.  We always watch the weather and snow depth before we go.  We have been lucky to only have to bring ATVs with wheels up there.  Eventually we will have to deal with some deep snow though and bring sleds or tracks up.     There are a few guides that run around on the lake.  Lee Nolden and Blackwater Cats are the 2 I know of.  From what I hear they are pretty accomadating and have all the necessary gear.
