The MN Firearms Deer Opener just a week away. Who is excited? Where you going? I am excited this year as I am going to hunt with a 44 Magnum. I have done the Rifle Hunt, I have done the Muzzle Loader, I have done the Muzzle Loader during rifle season, this year trying a different challenge and hunter with a revolver. I am excited. This spring I picked up a Smith & Wesson Model 629 with a 6" barrel. Put on an Ultra Dot site. I have had people say oh good to 100 yards, not for me thought, I don't belive I will attempt anything beyond 40-50 yards, thats just me.

10-4 on that last weekend of the season being for me the favored one to hunt. However it's openign weekend when frinedships and traditions are re-kindled, at least in our party. By the 3rd weekend, its just us hard cores. Then Black Powder season starts, for even more fun.

"Yep, I actually think the last weekend of the season is better than the opening weekend. I think it has to do with its usually colder and the rut is getting going a little stronger."

I think the reason the rut activity may be better is that most of the pumpkin army is back in the Metro instead of being hunting Smile

3 out of the first 4 days will have highs in the mid 50's. I hate how early firearm season opens in MN.

luvndakota, nice deer. I took up Muzzle Loader a few years ago, because it gave more days in the woods. Better yet, there is property close to home that I could grab the kids right after school and get 1 1/2 - 2 hours a day in the woods. This year purchased a 44 magnum Revolver, that is my latest endeavor, I want to shoot a deer with that this year.
