Roll call---Bow hunters

Recommended Posts

Roll call people, who will be taking part in opening bow hunting this year for that elusive monster buck? I will be out and putting in some serious time. Chime in if you will be swatting mosquitos and sweating right along side me!

Can't make it out on opener but I will be there second weekend. I was at the shack this weekend and the mosquito's weren't bad in the morning, but the evening was a different story. The neighbor came by on Fri. nite and one of the guy's from his bear hunting party got a nice bear that dressed out at 425 lbs.

I'll be going out there for the first time this year with a bow. I'm excited, but I'm not going to be able to make it out on the opener. My group was drawn for the 2004 moose hunt and we have to go to Isabella for the mandatory class and some moose scouting that weekend.

I'll be out the following weekend for sure in the evening (after the duck opener)...that is...unless the walleyes are biting.

GOD, I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR!!! smile.gif

I plan to be out of the truck walking to the stand by 5:45 am on Saturday, setup no later than 6. I plan to hunt the evening unless it's too hot, as well as possibly Sunday evening. It's nice that the Vikes play Monday night, so a game can't potentially complicate a Sunday evening hunt.

right along side y'all!
one thing I noticed last weekend, not very many skeeters as in the past. That just makes it even better.
COME ON SNOW!!!!

I will most definitely be out there. If nothing else, it is always interesting just sitting in the woods.

Will be out opening evening and maybe Sunday morning. Not too many skeets up North, but these darn 70 and 80 degree days make them hatch more and more each day. Oh well, they are not even close to as thick as other years. Hope to shoot a buck that makes "Milo Hanson's" look small, but will settle for a nice 8 or even a doe smile.gif

Count me in, is MN opener the 18th as it is here in cheesehead land? Will be doing more damage to the liver than to the deer. Always a chance for a buck in velvet. Lots of antlerless tags this year, so brown is gonna be down - fresh loins!

I can't make the opener this year - I'm expecting a daughter any day now. But it looks like I'll be able to get in some bowhunting in the 2nd half of October, which is OK by me. Good luck to everyone this weekend!

Can't make the opener, or even the first few days, looks like the 23rd will be my first evening out, but I'll definately be spending lots of hours in a tree this fall!! Can't wait til that first deer comes by my stand, and the rush you get after the shot!!

Good luck to all!

I will be out on Saturday night. Nothing like seeing 10-15 mosquitos landing on my netting at the same time. Last year on opener, I saw 9 deer. I the next two weeks, 8 evening hunts, I did not see one. So this year I may have to think twice about taking one of them.

I will be out there as well!!! The trail cameras sure do get your adranaline pumping. I have some nice pictures as well, but everyone keep in mind that these cameras don't take pictures of every deer in the woods. We will just have to get out there and see whats out there ourselves!!!!!!!

Good Luck to all venturing out!!!

I set up my stands and cleared lanes last weekend. The trails near where I hung them are virtual deer highways! I can’t wait to see what’s been moving through. With the way I have been shooting over the last few nights, they don’t stand a chance!

    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
