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!

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
