Just picked up the all season license. Won't be heading north until 11-09-07 for one week. I just don't like the opener anymore with the crazy weather. Have been taking the second week for a few years now and it seems more stable with highs around 40.
The second week makes no difference in getting the bucks too I found out.
I agree bearfat, if I had one week to hunt, it would be the second week.
Fortunately, this year I get the whole first week off, and the second weekdays.
just need to come home Saturday evening, and Sunday morning, of the second and third weekend.
We had a pretty good hunt in the Fergus Falls area. The prediction south of the Interstate where I hunt mostly was pretty dire.
We did 4 for 6 on Saturday. My brother-in-law got a doe about 100 yards from his house in a fieldat about 9:00 am. I shot a real nice 8 pt buck about 11:00 am in the river bottom a few miles south. We My nephew and brother-in-law each shot does about a half hour apart in the early afternoon on a new WMA recently purchased by Pheasants Forever and given to the state.
Today we hunted a bit with no luck and we then butchered the deer. I'm headed up to the Itasca area on Tuesday for 5 days at a friends' cabin
After the dire predictions, we were all pretty happy.
I hope everybody else had a safe and productive hunt. More later on my trip north, and the muzzleloader season.
