I didn't get drawn either, guess I get to hang around the cabin and play wishy washer and Norwegian golf. I love the thrill of the hunt, but I like the baiting process as well.

Getting a surplus tag doesn't effect your points. Might as well try, but it is not easy.

The way it lines up this year should be an advantage for the hunter, being that September 1st is on the Tuesday before Labor day weekend. should give a guy a few days  before the woods become alive with all the vacationers! We are seeing more and more 4 wheelers every year, and just people in general in the woods. The last couple of years our baits were working great till labor day weekend rolled around, then nocturnal. Could be a coincidence, and I know there are other factors.

Late season my azz!!! Let's go for a double on opening day :grin:

I ain't taking your best bait....no way..no how.... just looking forward to having a good time, helping out, and seeing you guys again. Also looking forward to taking you and Deadeye out fishing too :) (if he ain't to busy chasing girls)

 

You just let me know what you want me to bring for bait and treestands. Got a few cameras we could toss out for the bears to play with too.

I saw a video of a guy taking a bear with a pistol out of a ground blind at point blank range. Man would that ever get a guy going!  Maybe I'll bring the .44 and try that........ on second thought, maybe not :D:D

 

The last two bears I took with a bow, but I was thinking it would be fun to try a muzzleloader this time?

Got plenty of cameras (about a dozen), yep I'm looking forward to doing some fishing with you. You have a muzzleloader? Brian has a nice T/C Pro Hunter in 50cal, he has already killed a bear with it and I'm sure he would gladly let you use it.

Yes, I have the same smokepole. Haven't used it near enough and think it would be neat to shoot a bear with.

 

Oh man I can't wait!!

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
