40 days til early goose, then archery deer shortly after that! Starting to look at my to-do list with the thought of what absolutely has to be done before hunting season and what can slide. Looking at a new bow, trying to decide if I should get some more goose decoys, planning on getting out and beating on some doors next weekend to get archery permission - I'm getting pumped!

You and me both!
I need to start getting busy on my duck boat...seal some leaks, repaint it, touch-up my blind, put some new cord on my dekes.
Counting the days.....

I truely can't think of anything in the outdoors that makes me happier than sitting with Bud(chocolate lab) and watching the sun rise over the dekes. I love fishin', but when a bird sets its wings and is heading for the decoys, I get, well I can't explain it. Waterfowl hunting is a true passion for me. You guys are bringing up some emotions that I put away for the year. I'm thinking OK, put line on new dekes, touch up paint on goose shells, get some floater geese bought. I better get ready.

yeah, i'm as excited as ever this year too. I am only 17, and was just wondering what requirements are needed to hunt the early goose season. If i have a small game license and a federal duck stamp, what elso do i need to hunt the early season (which starts on sept. 1)? Do i just have to buy a early season license that costs $5 ? Please reply with some info. thanks everyone.

Any dates set on Game Fair and Prairie Pothole Days. I'll be there trying to win with some sweet chocolate labs. Sure glad they didn't move the duck opener up. Fiance wanted a fall wedding so I gave in on the second weekend of bowhunting. I would have given in on Sat. opener if they had moved the season up but think she would have gotten the clue when we got to our room and the waders were hanging from the door?

    • I have a 2013 ecoboost since new, now have 85,000. Starts right up.
    • 1/16 oz chartreuse forage minnow. No need for anything else.
    • Got out on local trails for a quick 60 mile ride ,,,, 3rd set of tracks on a freshly groomed trail ,,, It was like riding on a ribbon,,, Trail conditions near Duluth  are ideal with all the snow we have received,,, Ya gotta love riding during the week  
    • Demons are good!  I always have some with too.  But I usually start with a forage minnow in blue/glow.  Another I’ve learned to keep handy is a Rattling Blade Spoon.   Can’t say I have a hard go to for sunnies.  Sometimes they hit the forage minnow anyway.  But I do normally have a tungsten jig head with plastic ready to go if a good marking fish is interested but just won’t commit.
    • Oops, you’re right Del. I have deer too and feed corn to them. Birds are fighting for perches many times throughout the day. I’ve been trying to coordinate the frenzy times With those major/minor  feeding activity tables but so far not much similarity. It gets REAL crazy at times. 
    • What is everyone's favorite crappie and sunfish jig?  I always like to a have a demon jig on at least one of my rods. I have had great luck with a white body and a purple, orange or pink head. The demon has been my go to crappie jig for many winters! I also like a red/ yellow demon for sunnies.
    • Wisconsin had a series of snowfall across the entire state this week, dropping anywhere from 6 to more than a foot of snow in many locations. With Wisconsin finally completely covered with snow, this should be one of the best weekends of the season for outdoor winter recreation.Snowmobile trails have reopened through much of central Wisconsin counties and a few southern counties. Trails across the northern half of the state were good to excellent on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Cross-country ski trails were groomed or will be by the weekend and many properties are reporting ski trail conditions are excellent or good. After several snowfalls this week, crews have been busy grooming ski trails. Many properties are reporting excellent conditions going into the weekend.Photo credit: DNRNorthern lakes are ice covered with 20-plus inches of ice. With the snowfall the lakes are heavy with snow and travel out on the ice is difficult. There have been a few diehard ice anglers out there fishing for walleye, crappie and perch with not much to show for their efforts. .
    • Careful with your spelling there, dude.  You never know who is reading.... Maybe that is why the packages seem to now all say Nyjer seed instead of niger.  😀
    • How many Deer tracks do you have around your feeders or else the squirrels are getting at it!  😉
