I remember when I started deer hunting at age 12.
They handed me a Remington 742 in 308,a box of shells,and pointed at the woods.

I hear ya. I was just a scared kid at the time. I went from being more happy and excited than I could remember to being scared to death in matter of seconds.

Me and Scott are headed to Chickenbuck tonight when he gets off work. CBF got up there yesterday. Dad & Kenna are going tomorrow cuz she has to put in 1/2 a day of school. Hope we can get more on the meat pole.

Those were the days, some 55 odd years ago with a Win 30-30, shells in your pocket and pops saying, "We need to get up there, to get ahead of them, but watch our back trail!"

good luck to you all!
my dad still hasn't gotten his deer yet, he's seen plenty every time he goes out, but not one he wants. he's seen a nice big one come to a fence line right at dark the last couple nights, but the wind has always been wrong to sit there, today hopefully the wind is in his favor and he'll put him down. I've been sick the last 2 days and have to work today so he's by himself. good luck to all! go forth and slay deers!

I think you should pay for your own mortgage, birth control and student loans. I don't think that because I am a conservative, but because I'm an adult.

Good luck everyone!

I still can't believe how early your seasons begin and end. Any idea why the MN season is so early, compared to quite a few others?

It seems like your season is ending at the same time ours is starting.

PA doesn't even start gun season until the Monday AFTER Thanksgiving.

Minnesota like to put rifle hunters on top of the rut. Wisconsin hunters start just as the rut ends and some states, like Iowa, don't let out the bulk of the gun guys until December when there is a sort/maybe secondary rut kinda.

gun hunting on top of the rut is probably not widely considered a good way to sustain a crop of big bucks.
