Is the gun hunting over after today in MN? Seems like there's been a season of some sort or another for a long time now (SE)

I believe muzzleloader just closed today. Bow season in most of the state goes until the end of the year. That's what I think I know! confused

There is a "any tag" type season I believe in the TB area 101 yet so there still could be some guns a blazing.

Why can't the hunters of the area take care of it and register them where they can then be checked out, do the locals up in the NW want sharpshooters blowing them away ?

My cousin has graduated. We had 2 bucks go by Saturday morning at about 25 yards, both were 1st racked so he passed them up. 2 years ago he shot a 10 pointer that dressed 211 pounds. Last year nothing, this year passed a chance for meat and to fill his tag. Gets to be a long time between deer, but he still on his last day of Muzzy passed. He's graduated, he'll never purposefully take another immature buck. Now he can hunt my land when OK'ed by me anytime he wants because I know he'll leave them alone. I wish they would put an antler restriction on for people like 21 and up to 65. I know it won't do much because some guys would fill their children's tags and cross tagging is a major problem. Maybe that's where we are at and will never get better. I saw a guy with a bloody pickup truck bed up town Saturday at Holiday, I asked how was deer season he said great, I shot 4 bucks this year. Here's the pictures, none of them dressed over 150 pounds although he was telling me the biggest one dressed close to 190. All yearling bucks and I'm sure he and his wife and kids tagged them up.

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
