  1. Don, This 9 year old has been hunting since he was 2. Yes I’m not kidding. Since he was two years old. He has sat with his dad on countless hunts where deer were passed a couple were taken. Last season he sat with his dad as he arrowed a nice 8 point. He has put more time in to shooting and hunting prep than most grown men. I don’t think he would have a problem with understanding what it means to take a deer’s life.
  2. My best friends son is 9. He has been practicing archery for a long time now and can easily pull back over 30lbs. He is deadly up to 15-20 yards and has practiced from multiple places like blinds and stands. I can’t find anything in the book stating he can’t hunt but it does say licenses are for hunters 10 and older. Does that mean he can hunt deer but must be with a licensed hunter and apply their tag if he harvests an animal? Or is it illegal for him to hunt because he’s not 10? Why do our regulations always have to be so confusing?
  3. 2 buddies and I are leaving this Thursday (10/12) for a first season rifle elk hunt in West Central Colorado on public land. For me, it is my first elk hunt. I have been working out for a few months and bought some necessary gear. My rifle is sighted in and I'm mostly packed. Hopefully, we will find some elk. 2 of us have bull tags and the other has a cow tag. If you have any suggestions or tips that you may be able to share as far as tactics, unusual gear that a person may need, advice, etc please feel free to share!
  4. Saw a nice buck cruising at about 60 yards yesterday morning. Then last night, had two 1 1/2 year old bucks pushing around and chasing what looked like a female fawn or maybe a small yearling doe. Made for some fun entertainment for quite a while on stand. My buddy missed a nice 8 on Saturday evening. Our group of 4 saw deer on every sit this weekend. This week albeit warm, should still see some low light action with the bucks getting ramped up. It'll be fun being in the stand.
  5. The start of my favorite 3 1/2 months is almost here! It has been a crazy summer and I am ready for some tree stand therapy. Good luck to all the bow hunters out there that will brave the mosquitoes this weekend. I will be in a managed area looking to fill the freezer with a healthy doe so I can focus on Mr. Buck the rest of the season.

  8. I am planning to archery hunt in MN. Mostly in central Minnesota. I am taking a trip to Colorado in October. Unfortunately, it will be with a rifle and not a bow. I got invited on a sweet little trip for the second rifle season near Grand Junction. Couldn't pass it up. Hoping to get out there during late September in a few years. With our first baby on the way, that may become more of a challenge.
  9. I have been struggling to find time to get out guys. I have been out two times with encounters both times that did not lead to any shots. I am hoping to make it out this weekend, but with putting our house up for sale there were lots of honey-do projects I needed to complete that have been eating up my time. Sorry gentlemen for not contributing to the conversation much. I hope to get it done yet, but it might have to be more luck than skill with my limited time.
  10. Hey fellas, I will be hunting in Wright County the entire season as I will be only using archery. This is my 3rd year in a row trying archery only for turkeys. I had two great opportunities last year that I didn't cash in on. One was so close I shot through the material of my blind. The property I hunt is pretty good and with the nice winter their should be plenty of birds. I will settle for the first legal bird as I have yet to stick one with my bow. Good luck to all! I am excited to read your stories!
  11. I bought my first bow when I was 14 years old. I was the first person in my family to take up interest in the sport. The first couple years, without a driver's license, I hardly ever made it out to the stand. However, once I turned 16 and started dating the woman who would become my wife, I have been an extremely dedicated bowhunter. It just so happened my in-laws owned a nice chunk of land that gave me a place to hunt on a regular basis close to home. Over the past ten years I have had countless encounters, shot a few does, lost a dandy buck in Camp Ripley, but other than that never drew
  12. I will again be chasing turkeys with the late season archery tag in MN. I had 4 close encounters last year, but no shots fired. This year will hopefully be better. The place I hunt is loaded with birds every year. If I hunted with a gun, I could have shot a turkey in all 4 close encounters. The challenge and rush with a bow is addicting! I will also be taking out my younger cousin. He shot a nice tom last season on Easter morning with me. Can't wait to hear those first gobbles coming in my direction!
  13. I also am getting very excited for Spring Turkey. After a tag soup fall for deer and turkey, I thought maybe I would just use my shotgun this spring to up my odds for turkey, but the closer it gets the more amped I am to shoot one with my bow. I came so close last season 3 different times, but wasn't able to get it done. I will be back at it with the bow. This coming fall- I am definitely not going to be able to get out west and hunt elk just yet. Being a teacher just makes that darn near impossible. Someday though... I was thinking about an OTC whitetail tag in ND. I have been think
  14. My buddy and I were out last night and he finally put a good shot on his first archery deer. He was somewhat disappointed that he had taken a little buck, but it was his first archery deer in his 3rd or 4th season hunting. He deserved to finally put some meat in the freezer! I told him, "Any deer this late in the season is a trophy, plus it's your first one!" After a little bit, he forgot about the size and we celebrated the harvest with a few beers and a story we'll share forever! So happy I was able to put him on his first archery deer. We hunt on a golf course and his "shot" ended u
