This North Idaho snow cant melt quick enough for me! Cant wait for those summer time trips to the mountains.

Time to warm up the stick and string and start reviewing maps!!

I was ready two minutes after the 2010 season ended! Once I get there, I just don't want to leave.

Nice work. Looks like a great shot. Pretty easy tracking that one I imagine!!!!

I'm prepping for spring bear, summer pack in fishing trips on the remote high country lakes. I really struggle over winter, I'm ready to roll.

Hey guys, how's it going! I think the "cabin fever" is running rampant this time of year for all! (grin) Heck, I'm looking forward to chasing some turkeys with a bow this year, April 15th it happens here in ID, still have over 4' of snow on the ground at this time & it's getting old once again! For now I just want to see the sun, it's been a while!!!

Its good to live in Arizona this time of year! Now if I can just get a elk tag!

I am still enjoying the "cool" temps around here in ND. Not looking forward to 90s and 100s. Still plenty to do around here. Almost time for some spring walleyes!!!!

You can still get on the mountain. You just can't ride your wheeler.:p

Definitely getting cabin fever...under 6 months till archery opens..not sure how I'm going to make it that long. Just use the extra energy to train harder for my solo central Idaho backpack hunts

I am starting to go nuts, good thing I can shoot my bow in the basement!

I have been keeping busy getting apps filled out and sent in. Collecting $$$$ from my buddies can be a full time job. Planning to take a trip up to the mountins at the end of the month just to get up there. Im counting the days till the draw results come out and then Ill really get excited.

I'm really anxious to see what tags I draw for the fall but luckily spring bear season holds me over for quite a while.

03-12-2011, 02:04 PM
I can hunt and fish year round, just have to be creative at times. No need to get restless. I can always fill the time with working on my gear, etc.

I got sick of waiting to hunt until fall every year so this spring I am going to go after a black bear with my bow starting Apr 15th and might give turkey a try in May. The lake should be thawing out before too long so I can go catch some trout and I can start shed hunting on May 1st. My job of tracking radio collared elk keeps me entertained pretty well too, some days I would actually rather stay home when its 30 below. No cabin fever for me.

me too!

same here going one my first blackbear hunt {I hope waiting for to Doc to clear me got hurt at work may have torn something in my knee} in April.LOL was talking to my 15 year old brother {he's got the hunting bug bad}and told me last night it was a 161 days until bow season.Had to tell him to go read the books I got him at the outdoor show;that it would help him get thru until season.He is reading David Long's book Public Land Mulies The Bottom Line and then he's going to reread Cameron Hanes Backcountry Bowhunting guide to the wild side.I didn't tell him but I think I got the "bug" worst then him been reading all of my old EBJ and EHJ and think about the gear I need to get but that could be becuase I've not been able to go outside for the last week becuase I've had to keep my knee up and no weight baring.Hurry up Doc I'm going to go nuts soon>
?Can anyone reccomend any other books on hunting for my brother at the rate he is reading going to need about 15 more books to get him thru until season.At lest I don't have to worry about school days and then two hours he's doing P90X and running every day.

Amen to that! It's a good thing Spring Bear and turkey are just a few weeks away. This cabin fever is killing me.
