I hear ya! So I'm awake early today (4am)and I just can't wait til 9am rolls around so I can tune in Buckmasters and realtree outdoors for a fix that will get me through til Monday when work will divert me the rest of the week. (HA!) and low and behold????? THEY SHOW THE SAME EPISODES AS YESTERDAY!!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Thank goodness for the net so I could check the longrange forecast again and make sure the weather will be good (It Will!!) and read if there's anything I've forgotten, (not that I know of yet) and then went to pick up Gadget JR. and take him out to borrow clothes from my brother for him. (he grew 7 inches since last year?!?) Got my grand dads red wool suit for him to wear under the orange (kinda cool seeing it used for the 4th generation) and then back for the second to the last packing of gear.

Wheeew. Made it thru to the Vikes game.

Now a little help from Mrs. Gadget grin.gif and I'll sleep til 4am! Only have to wait 2 hrs to get up and start Monday!

Looks like I'm not so psych'd after all!

Good luck to the rest of you!

Gadget

I feek the same as you guys do. I have been bowhunting for weeks but the rifle season is a lot diferent. I'm usually solo for Bow. Now its time to get together and have a great time!! I'm so excited. Three days left of work! Man those days are going to creep, but its worth it. I can actually enjoy the long days anticipating the next week.

My wife calls it HF (hunting fever). I love bow hunting, but like others I'm usually solo. Rifle season brings nephews, grandpa, friends, neighbors, etc into the mix. I'm getting so I spend more time helping others get deer than myself, although I spend the whole week usually so there isn't a lack of time in the woods for me. The traditions are the key, I laugh when someone turns "The Second Week of Deer Camp" up the first time on the radio. We have a trophy we give out that you get your name on with the year for the "best" deer. It isn't always the biggest deer usually the persons first deer or the best story. A lot of lobbying by the guys to promote their deer. Have fun, be safe.

I also have the fever. Deer hunting has been all I can think about for the last month. One day at work feels like two. I've made my lists and checked them a hundred times. I have all my stuff ready to go. Bibs and jacket are washed and outside hanging. Clothes are in plastic bags after scent killer washing. New gun is sighted in, cleaned and oiled. The poly on our brand new deer camp sign for our shack is drying. I've tinkered around with my new Garmin Legend GPS enough to where I know how to use it now. I've been having dreams of deer hunting. Some normal dreams, and some weird ones where we were hunting deer in the house! I can't take it anymore. Get me outta here and up to deer camp!!!

I would have liked to have been a mouse in the corner during that household deer hunt dream...the hallway would be a good funnel area...I'd set up in the kitchen come dusk, too.

All deer camps have fun traditions which makes the get together so enjoyable, the new guy who gets his or her's first deer and then they do the bragging stuff, the story of how I missed the big one, we have a plaque made up and the big buck goes on it with the name of the lucky hunter it gets displayed every year. We have a hat with a big 12 point buck on it its called the dirty dozen hat, the guy who shoots a 12 pointer gets the hat, that hat has been there too many years, maybe this year it will find a home, my home Good Luck and be safe.

Hey everyone. Have fun and be safe. I've got two weeks to wait before I hunt. I'm going a little batty reading all these posts and wishing I was headed north too. Guess I'll just have to chase the geese until it's my turn to sit in the woods.

Good Luck! smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

The oil changes are done (both truck and ATV). The clothes are washed and dried. Just 13 more hours then I'll be on my way.

Wish everyone luck, safety, and straight shooting.

    • That's awesome!  Many congrats to you both. 
    • A cougar absolutely but a puma? That might be a good time to call SSS outfitters.
    • Maybe if no one was looking
    • It hasn’t been a hay day but I’ve managed a limit of ducks each day plus a couple geese today.   Its always impressive coming out and seeing birds literally by the thousands but they aren’t fools!  Plus, anyone who hunts out here knows, you have to work to be rewarded.  Lots of scouting, lots of decoys, and lots of analyzing.  And then, lots of patients can come in handy.   40 yards out here looks 20 in Minnesota.  Its amazing.
    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
