Best thing to do is, like I did 9 years ago, got the f out of there!! Lived in Mound area for 20 years.....I shouldn't be suggesting moving to the Rockies but I feel sorry for those still stuck in Minnesota. Honestly it's hard to begin trying to explain to someone how many times one will screw up elk hunting by the hour. If you hunt whitetail just leave all those ideas at home. It in no way will help you, lol. Best of luck!!!
