Recommended Posts

I won't start shooting until August 1st. I will then shoot pretty steady up to the seson and then once a week until the end. This site will idle along until the season approaches and then it will fire up.....

Shot indoors all winter. This will be my first summer without shooting league since I was a kid. (That was a long time ago)

I came home from a hunt in Montana last fall with a bad knee. Walking around the hills of Chilakoot does me no favors. Gotta have the knee in good shape by October so I'm gonna try to be good to it till then.

I've been shooting a little bit, but not as much as I should. Once turkey season is over I will start the process of buying a new bow.

My old bow is still making 6" groups at 40yds. Hopefully I can tighten that up. Also, I purchased some FOB's so thats something I'm looking forward to using also this year.

Been shooting all year, just more outside on walk through courses than inside since its getting nice out. Had a big problem with the bow and had to have her sent back to the factory for engineering to take a look at her. Draw mods were stripping the screws out and shredding the metal. That made a lot of noise. Should be back in 2-4 weeks. Then business will pick up again.

Shot a few arrows a few weeks ago. A little rusty, but not too bad. Hopefully I can get into my shooting routine in a few weeks.

Shoot Straight!

An actual FITA round is 40-50-60 meters. Where did you do that? I've always enjoyed the target round.

True DonBo, although I think a true FITA is 50-70Meters?... Thats why I shot the "American 600 Fita round".. they use the exact same target 122cm face... I just shot it in my back yard up at the cabin where you met me... I can shoot out to about 130 yards maybe more..

Just replaced my Biscuit with a new one, put one on daughters bow, and son outgrew his reach on his bow, going to use my old one till growth spurt is done. We got ALOT of tuning before we get into too much practice. On the bright side, just did a camo paint job on our 5yr old's bow, so he's lettin em fly.

I'm actually ashamed to say I haven't taken it out yet. Last year was my first year bow hunting and it was a blast! I need to get it out and get some more practice in.

Heat Checker you say that your son grew out of his bow. My soon to be wife really wants to get into shooting at targets just for fun. I'm looking at an inexpensive starter bow for her. Don't want to put too much $ down on it in case she doesn't like it as much as she thinks. Are you looking at getting rid of it? I'll put a post on the "for sale" section of Archery if you want to respond...thanks.

I am still shooting as well, not as much as before, because of time spent on the water.

I bought a Bear Recurve three weeks ago.

What a learning curve.

So I am shooting.

We will see if I develop enough skill to take a White-tailed deer up to 20 yards by fall.

    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • 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!!!!
