In Carlos Avery wear as much Blaze Orange as you possibly can. Walk as deep in the woods as you dare.

I would even say when you are walking out - Make noise

There hasn't been nearly the pressure on Carlos this year as in years past and if you do your homework there are alot of out of the way places where a person can park, walk in and have the place to himself. Do your home work and have a backup plan in case someone shows up before you and is in your spot. At 29,000 acres there aought to be somewhere you can hunt without the masses.

Dnr site, county plat books and even atlas's will have the roads and boundries. If you do some driving around there are alot of dead end roads that but up to it. Most parking is on the side of the road but there are areas with designated parking lots as well.

If you go into Carlos, make sure you pay attention. I was bow hunting an area next to a cattail swamp a few years ago. Guy shot a bird out of a tree close to me - didn't see me - I wont ever go back. Be safe.

Not many bow hunters wear orange, and not many law abiding hunters shoot a bird out of a tree.

Like I said; just be careful. I'd hate to read about a fellow FM'er being bagged rather than being the bagger.

I was out this morning and saw a fair amount of pressure along the main roads, 97, broadway in Flake and 22 in Wyoming but when traveling along some of the lesser known spots only came across 2 vehicals in eight different areas. So depending on where you plan to hunt there are open spots with little to no pressure. Do the homework and you'll be able to get into areas without a ton of hunters.

Yes. Several times.

I guess everyones experience is different, but, in terms of "calming down"; you asked.

I was out there yesterday afternoon for the last of the gun hunt. Although it was a little busy, I was able to find a spot where I was left alone. Unfortunately the deer left me alone as well. smile

Not much shooting and a lot of long faces driving out. Oh well there is always Zone 1

But I cant complain, I got my Crow Wing County doe in the freezer and I was antler hunting anyway. It was better than watching the queens hand the game over.

I hunted it last year and will do whatever I can to never go back there. People firing over your head, sounds like a war zone at first light. Way to many people and way to many that have no clue. Try to find some land another place if you can.

I dont think I would have the guts to go out there on opening morning. (or any morning before light for that matter) I have heard a few horror stories myself. By the second weekend, most of the ya-hoos are gone. I will go over for the afternoon hunts if I am back in town late in the week. Not too bad then...

    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there. 
    • Mostly commenting this "sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests" but I do love it when people assume I am somehow D or R because I make a comment against their beloved party.
       
    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.  
    • This summer?   Seems like a long time.  Are you sure this guy knew what he was doing?     Freezing may or may not kill the parasite.     From CDC.  Freezing wild game meats, unlike freezing pork products, may not effectively kill all worms because some worm species that infect wild game animals are freeze-resistant.
