Slinging arrows during slug season.

Recommended Posts

All my buddys leave the woods during slug season. Just wondering how many other guys work the woods with there sticks and string during slug season. Its my favorite time of year to bow hunt and now I got slug hunters pushing the deer around. They have this thing about having to wear blaze orange. Plus all the other hunters out in the woods wears on there nerves. It deosn't bug me how about you guys.

I love to bowhunt more than gun hunting deer, but I gun hunt during the gun season. Kinda fun and a change of pace!

Plus, why bring a knife to a gun fight?

I usually head over to WI during MN gun season, and vice versa... I like being safe, and dont like wearing orange.. LOL
Heh? I can see that from your avatar Deitz or is that red? Seems orangeish red on my computer though. I hunt with the bow during firearms behind my house during the slug season and make it over to Wisc. if I have free time. One of the best times to be in the woods in my opinion as the deer get pushed and move all day long.

Well said.

I used to bow hunt during the rifle season. Then I started to shoot handguns. Now I hunt the rifle season, in my best bow stand, with a handgun. Mabe this year I will actualy shoot one. grin

I am just happy to be deer hunting. I started out a rifle hunter, switched to being a bowhunter (longer season and much warmer), and now do both. I am not going to give anyone else a hard time for how they hunt either.

Whatever you do, you have to own it. If you want to bowhunt durring the rifle season, or the muzzle loader season, or the baby seal season who cares. Get out your orange, join the orange army and go hunting.

Just go sit in a stand where the neighbors land buts up to yours and wait and better yet if you have public land butting up to yours. Most of the deer are going to head where there less shots being fired.

I was actually thinking about starting a topic on this subject!!

Here's my dilemma. I mostly bowhunt but during the shotgun season in (the old) zone 4 I'd slug hunt with relatives, it was kind of fun, and the deer drives are always fun, they get your heart pumping, then I'd go back to bowhunting on the week in between the two slug seasons, the deer calm down after a couple of days and the bucks are really moving by that Thursday and Friday. I've even been known to sit with my bow on the second Sat of slug hunting.

Now this year, with the new 9 day straight season, I can take either my gun or bow. As one of the earlier posters said, why take a knife to a gun fight? What if that 14 point walks by at 50 yards and I only have a bow in my hands? But I'd be a LOT happier shooting that big buck with my bow!!! Decisions, decisions!!!

This nine day season also throws a wrench into some of the spots I bowhunt, I hate going on public land when slug hunters are out there, too many crazies, and too easier to encounter a red coat sitting on the same fence line that you are, facing you at 100 yards as the sun comes up!!!

    • 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!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
