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.

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
