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.

    • That's why I remain in the adapt and live with it and hope for a solution that doesn't destroy our already sub-par deer hunting in MN. (and fishing when it comes to aquatic invaders)
    • i use the same husky bag for my helix setup works great.
    • Ice Team partnered with Navionics for a handful of online webinars.  These are pretty cool.  I thought the HSO group would get a kick out of them.  Not always easy to make all of the seminars in-person, especially when you live across the country from some of them, so these webinars offer-up a unique opportunity.  Here are the details on the ones coming up if anyone is interested...   When: December 11th, 8:00 PM EST Topic: How to Attract Fish to You on the Ice with Mark Martin. Link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7012356799514703874?source=Navionics+News    When: December 19th, 8:00 PM EST Topic: Improving Your Lake Trout Ice Fishing Tactics with Bernie Keefe. Link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/82867287788632833?source=Navionics+News     Enjoy!
    • Nice set up. Husky also makes a lunch bag that seems to work well for ice fishing electronics. I reinforced the top lid to support my tablet and put a switch, 12v outlet & 3 port phone charger to one side. I like the extra storage on back for cables and 2 water holders for my chargers. Use the 9ah 12v lead acid battery for power. Has carry handle when closed.
    • You guys may be right.  May as well start draining every dam lake with invasive species in it to make sure it's stopped, cut down ever dam Ash tree, start shooting every Sparrow, Pheasant and netting all the Smelt out of Superior that will take some time. But we can do it!!!  Insert crazy emoticon here: 😵
    • Lots of reality here.   Seriously, if we truly want to wipe out CWD, all deer/elk farms need to be wiped out, all natural deer scents need to be banned and taken out of production and every single deer/elk anywhere near a positive CWD infected area needs to be wiped out. Every last one of them! And then, all deer that are found in these areas for at least 10 years need to be destroyed.    Is this a sacrifice the state is willing to make? Not a chance! So we fall to the only other option, we adapt and live with it. 
    • It's always fun to rig up your own custom stuff then paying a bunch of money for things that may not work as well.  Looks like it should do the trick for you!  🙂
    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.   
    • Gettin er done.    I have to take the "T" that the transducer pipe goes through to work so I can open the ID so the pipe can slide freely.
