Anyone want to go hunting this weekend? *Public Land*

Postby MaxDuck » Wed Nov 20, 2013 12:12 am

Hey guys, I'm going to be hunting every morning from this saturday all the way till next saturday(Nov 30th) on the Fox River. Unfortunately, my dad just had hip surgery so looks like this Thanksgiving Break back from college I will not have him as a hunting buddy. I plan on getting to the blind really early though. I do not have a boat, but I've got pretty much everything else. If anyone is looking for a hunting buddy for this weekend/next week I'm very interested. My friend will be joining me(or us) next Tuesday. Hope it'll work out. If not, good luck with the rest of your season!

Good luck with your hunt. Would like to join you but working .Be very careful as the river is a bit high and very swift.

Preciate it FoxRiverHunter, thanks for the heads up. As I do not have a dog, ours passed away and with dad's surgery it just wasn't gonna happen this season, I'll make sure there's no cripples high-tailing it downstream. Hope you can ditch work sometime and make it out! Have a good season

If you take a boat, a mud motor/surface drive is almost a must. Some spots are only ankle deep. Running an outboard would be risky and hitting a rock is probable. Don't take a spill in the current. If you do, get to a car with the temperatures that are expected. Not having a dog you better learn how to run fast.
