Rot, that is a nice mature deer. Sag in the belly, arch in the back, big rear end. He's got to be 4 maybe 5 years old.

Nice shots guys, here is the first one I got this year. A younger buck, but has some potential in 2 years.

There is nothing illegal about using corn or bait to get deer to come into a viewing area. During the deer season, now thats a different story.

Using bait or minerals is a great way to get deer to come to where your camera is. You can get several pics of a single deer, rather than a single shot thats marginal if you just try to use trails for getting pics.

Ditto what BLB said. Before you start judging people, pause a second and think about it. Do you know all the facts? I didn't think so.

I have not used corn at all this year with my trail cam, though I have in past years in miniscule amounts and there is nothing wrong with it as I have stopped months before the season started. Believe me, the frequency of pics drops dramatically in the days afterward, so I have not patterned them to come to where was once corn for the next few months of there being nothing there.

Using minerals is often recommended as part of QDMA and there is nothing illegal about it. Like BLB said, it is a great stopper for trail cam pics. BTW, I have never once watched a deer utilizing a mineral site in September or later while hunting. It's not like dumping a pile of corn on the ground. It is, however, a good and legal way to provide them with minerals and get some pics.

If you're going to accuse someone of illegally baiting, you'd better be (Contact Us Please) sure you know what you're talking about. Because that's about one of the worst things you could ever accuse a hunter of.

I use apples and corn in July and August in front of my cameras. I set my timer to one picture every minute, this way I get lots of pictures of the deer here, I just save the best pics and delete the others. I have no bait out after Aug. 31st and I don't resume until Jan 1st. There is nothing illegal about that. I'm checking my cams right now, if I get any good pics i'll put em up.

That last buck is very impressive. Nice job.

judging by the pictures it looks like a lot of the big bucks are nocturnal so you might not see them this fall.

Hey camera poster!? If guys don't mind could you post what cameras your using and what model? It would be a great resource for us guys who are in the market to compare brands?

Thanks,

These are from August, I think the buck on the bottom could be good sized by September.

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.
    • Muskies
      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser      
    • eyeguy 54
      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.
