Should be an interesting morning

5 posts in this topic

I started bowhunting a small piece of private property in the metro area tonight. The only time I have ever hunted here was turkeys this spring.

I saw 7 deer tonight including 2 bucks, though I couldn't tell how big. There was lots of rutting action.

I will be hunting here again in the morning, first time ever bowhunting during the gun season. That will be interesting in itself, but what really has me turned on is the turkeys! I have a turkey tag in my pocket and tonight I was in the middle of about 30 turkeys as the flew to roost. 10 - 12 were big toms! I would love to go in with my shotgun and try to bag one of those big boys, but the rut action has me sticking to my bow. Hopefully I can get a crack at one in the morning.

How cool would it be to bag a bird and a buck with my bow on opening morning of gun season?

That would be cool and really quite a feat at the same time.

Go get'em killer.

Didn't go exactly as planned. The turkeys flew into a field 1/4 mile away and the only deer seen were fawns, one still had spots! Was still fun to dream about what could have been. I still have a couple more days to make something happen.

Good luck Don!!! How sweet would that be to bag a turkey and buck on the same hunt!!! Hoping to see that pic here in the next few days, keep after 'em!

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
