A new season

4 posts in this topic

The gun season has one more day, Fall is on the cusp of winter, and it always feels like it's a new season to me with the bow. Feel that I have to start off fresh again--old patterns seem to be gone. The only thing that settles it in for me again is a good snowfall. What about all of you? How do you approach this time of change?

sharpen the auger and charge up the vex.

load the muzzle loader and wax the bowstring.

replace the damaged blades on my muzzy 100 broadheads from the buck and doe I whacked before rifle season.

a few honey-do's to up my cashable brownie points with every intention of cashing them in.

I always hope for a good snowfall and some cold temps and go find a standing corn field somewhere. I also always hunt the moon this time a year. A full moon with some snow makes it look like noon at midnight making for nocturnal movement. There is a new moon on the 27th and a full one on the 12th. From the 19th till the end of the year I will be looking to fill a tag.

I think you hit it on the head, its a completely different season now. The deer will be very spooked after the gun season, there will be less of them, and they'll be concentrating on food - and so should you. I tend to do less morning hunts and more evening hunts simply becasue its warmer in the afternoon. Fun to get out though!

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!

    •   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/320316-trump-clarifies-remarks-on-nonexistent-sweden-incident-i-got-it   Nah, he just got it from Fox News. Where else would he be able to get accurate information about what is happening in the world?  
    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
