I hear that. On the way home from leech lake last weekend we saw a buck standing on the side of the road near camp ripley. Antlers were just coming over the top of the ears, and it has time to get bigger. That got me thinking about the season.

Anybody know the dead line for ripley? Is it Augest? I could find out but this is easier.

there havent been to many days that have gone by that i havent thought about bow season

Same here, at just about any time or any where my mind can jump into bowhunting mode. I can be in another state driving by some land I know I will never hunt but I just can't help but size up the hunting potential.

After the food plots are in and trail cameras are up one can't help but look forward to the New season. It's a lot of fun to check the bucks out right now...seems like they could all be Booners at this point.

I haven't even bought my new bow yet. I gotta get going on that. Getting a new bow every year is kind of a pain in the butt. Going to keep whatever I get this year for a while.

Don't wait too long. Your gonna wanna practice for awhile to get comfortable with it.

You only have 94 days left. I would recomend at least 2-3 months of shooting before you hunt with it.

This off season has been one of the toughest for me in a long time. Not sure why exactly, but I can't seem to get it out of my head. Hopefully chasin' muskies for a while will make me forget the upcoming season for a little while (although it certainly won't make me more sane). crazy

Oh no not the dreaded fall wedding! I think I have one of those this year, nothing but lost hunting time. I made sure my wedding didn't conflict with anything important. We got married in early spring before fishing opener, I know I don't like to burn up a summer weekend going to a wedding, and of course the fall was off limits for me.

I am getting the itch as well. I took the bow out for practice this weekend. I haven't used it since December and I did something that I have not done in five years. I got kissed from my string. I am black and blue from my elbow to almost my wrist. My buddies should have a good time razzing me on this one.

lol there is no good time for a wedding. fall= hunting, spring= fishing openers, summer= vacations, and winter= ice fishing

I can not wait till opener. Boss and i were talking about when harvest would be this year. He said well...hopefully around first part of sept. I told him well it better be done by Sept 19 or you will be having a hard time getting me into the combine for the first few days. Hopefully the bugs aren't as bad this year and I can get out of the ground blind for more then just a day or two.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
