Fiance's First Deer

21 posts in this topic

Saturday morning my finace was able to get her first deer ever! I recently bought her a bow as she was interested in shooting. She decided she wanted to come with us to ND for rifle season to try to arrow one. I knew it would be a little tougher this way but figured there was a chance. Saturday morning we set up on the corner of mature cottonwoods, corn, and a thick tree planting. All seperated by fire breaks. Luckily with all the snow that fell I was able to make a decent ground blind out of a 3 foot snow drift. About 15 minutes after we could shoot a doe starts working her way directly toward us. She makes it all the way to the edge of the trees in front of us meanwhile keeping a watchful eye on us. At this point she is only 10 yards away and decides that she wants nothing more of this situation. She turned around and took a few steps back into the trees and stopped broadside in an opening. Meanwhile my fiance drew and shot after the deer had stopped. She made a perfect shot! She double lunged the deer and it only went 40 yards. I think I was more excited than she was. It couldn't have worked out any better.

Thats awesome. Looks like a nice doe and a great morning to be out. Love the pictures of all the new hunters that are getting deer this year. Seems to be more than normal. Really appears to be more women in the outdoors. I'd love to get mine to hunt, but its not her thing...

Great Job!

Hopefully I can get my wife to take an interest in bowhunting in the future. It would be a great way spend time together. With jobs and other stuff, it's difficult to find a hobby we both can enjoy together. Congrats to your fiance getting her first deer.

Man, you have totally screwed yourself on this one. Hunting is when a guy can be alone and solve the worlds problems - getting away from the wife :)Now, the wife will be out hunting and you have to stay home to take care of the kids smile

Kidding - well done - and congratulations!

    • 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!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
