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.

    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days 
    • A gill getter jig(horizontal) and a "flipper" jig(vertical) are the first two to go on the line for sunfish.   Crappies are kinda my kryptonite, so i usually throw the box at them till something works. I am still a meat fisherman, plastics have been very productive at times however.
    • but ya have yer smurf glass there and it's ready to use too!!!
    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
