Minnesota Deer Hunting

Postby mnmtranching » Tue Oct 30, 2007 9:56 am

Opens Sat, Anybody going.

I bought my license yesterday, $41 for the either sex plus 1 management tag. We can kill 5 deer here, but only one antlered.

Seems like a high price to pay for critters that eat my crops year around. :shock:

mnmt, the husband returns from the Dakotas on Friday evening. Probably just in time to say "whats for supper?" He and our daughter will be hunting together this weekend. The phone is already ringing off the hook with guys asking a million questions. The rest descend on us next week :roll: I am left with the kitchen and two dogs who evertime they hear a shot start barking wildly.

We get tons of folks from the cities crawling all over this area. Oh yeah and you don't want to go to the grocery store on Friday. Guys in orange going down the aisle the wrong way, causing cart jams, picking up foods their wives would never let them have at home, stuff like that. Its soooooo fun!

MM, Park Rapids becomes total chaos [sp] by Fri :shock: :shock
And lots of hunters only leave the shack to go for beer :shock:

And MM if those hunters bombard you for meals, make darn sure you have a tip box where they all can see it. 8) 8)

When you get your new license, be sure you throw the old one away and not the new one. It's kinda hard to explain that to the warden. Believe it or not, he let me go. I guess the story is so stupid it has to be true. I can be such a dumb #ss at times. Sometimes I wonder how I even get my shoes tied. :oops:

Season has been in for a few weeks here. I'm not going till the skeeters go away. Can't stand the buzzing and it don't seem right sitting in a deer stand in shorts.

You Southern Folks may find this hard to believe.

Up here if you don't skin the deer right away, often it will be froze solid by morning. :shock: :help:

MM, I'm going to try get a pic of my brother in his sitting on a board in a tree clothes :o :o He will sit there if it's -20. :roll:

Me, a couple years older and wiser [maybe it's more feable] But I use a heated stand.

Down here if you don't clean it right away it spoils!!! I can't count how many times I've played football after eating christmas dinner in shorts.

Jogeephus...try a Thermacell. They're awesome.

Today was my day to get the goooo scared out of me. First thing this morning I walked into an old tenant house only to come face to face with a black vulture who hissed at me and asked me to leave. :shock: Thought I'd slip out this afternoon and see what the deer were doing. Met this little sucker on the way. He is now dead as is the other one I got within an hour. I guess they know the cold front is moving in and they are on the move. This is 6 in two days.

Took two shots though. My scope must not be sighted at three feet. :lol:

Joe, Jeez! I hate them things. I've come across a few rattlers in early season Montana. The 12 gauge seems to work good at close range 8) I rate snakes right up there with skunks and porcupines .
That is :roll: as far as having their place in nature. :x I'm thinking DEAD. :D :D

Jo - I thought you had a policy of "if they rattled at you, you let them go". Or I may have confused you with someone else, anyway can I assume he didn't shake his rattles and that's why you sent him to snake be nice? (Since I don't like snakes I figure they certainly don't go to heaven.)
