Bow hunt or duck hunt???

Recommended Posts

Which will it be this weekend? Seeing more ducks in the area though I'd really like to stick a deer early season too. I've passed up a few shots on small bucks and missed a nice one last weekend. Pheasant hunters will be out in droves this weekend and will be moving deer where I hunt. But then again we did see a lot of mallards moving in last night and I haven't been out yet. Forecast is for clear skies and near 70 on Saturday, don't feel like duck hunting weather or deer hunting weather for that matter. Decisions!!! Maybe I should go fishing! What to do?

Pheasant doesn't open 'till the 16th!!!!!!

Just because waterfowl opened a week early Pheasant does NOT. Check the regs.

I would duck hunt the AM and deer the PM

Pheasant season must be a week late this year??? I don't pheasant hunt so I guess I'll have to wait a week to have the deer chased to me!

I would say that next weekend if you have a stand near some public areas (that hold pheasants). That you should have no problems seeing deer!

Nothing like having an army of pheasant hunters unknowingly help you out grin.gif
Sit as long as you can!
Good Luck

I've always contemplated bowhunting on the morning of pheasant opener, but I like pheasant hunting too much to give it up.

Weathers too nice for duck hunting, you get that 1/2 hour/45 minutes in the morning, then no ducks flying, I'm going bow hunting Sat AM and PM, then will play it by ear on Sunday. May just try to get all the To-dos done so I can hit the bowhunting hard in late Oct/early Nov.

weather is going to be my determeing factor.
More than likely it looks like I will be fishing instead.

Bow hunting both times, duck hunt in the morning if it's 20mph wind or stronger. I'd have to be pounding a limit of ducks in 3 hours or less to not be wishing I was bowhunting if it's reasonably still. Actually I can't do either one on Saturday, my wife's got class for her Master's program. Have to watch the Twins beat the Yanks with the kids.

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
