You mean to tell me nobody has submitted any bear photos yet?

I think the warmer temps has probably slowed down the bears and turned them pretty nocturnal. I shot a doe last weekend but didnt photo it. I was too busy cleaning and skinning the deer due to the temps.

Looks like I should have hunted more than 2 hours. Way to go guys, nice bucks.

Those are really nice bucks, but there is just something about the large neck of a rutting buck that gets me pumped. I dont think I could take a buck with a super skinny neck. But then again, maybe I would feel different in the moment. Very Very nice deer though fellas.

nice calm cold morning. got in stand oh around 5:45-6, yeah i know got a late start. couldn't sleep much last night and when i did fall asleep it was a little hard to wake up. anyhow, had mom set up about 200 or so plus yards away and by the time i got settled in and quiet, get my mask on i sat for about 20 minutes and herd the loudest noise i have ever heard, then mom calls and said she shot one. turns out that the noise i heard was her arrow breaking through the shoulder blade. i never even got time to see a deer this morning. well, my turn is this evening. good luck everyone.

figured i would pop in and report the morning...

Where do you think you hit him and what color blood did he drop? Also, how soon did you push him?

What was on the arrow as far as blood or matter? Any hair on the arrow and if so, what color? One might be able to tell what happened if you know the answers to these questions.

i didnt find any blo0d, the arrow didnt exit. i shot him facing me down through the shoulder blades at 10 yards. at the time i thought with the angle i was going to hit lung and liver but looking at the trailcam pic im pretty sure i hit liver and guts. i still havent found him but i heard some crows about 400 yards straight south of my stand so im going there tomorrow after work. i should have thought it through a little better. i just got to worried he was going to spook since he was smelling my pee. well the best i can hope for now is that the birds and coyotes have left the head and neck alone. frown.gif

      Well well where to begin. This past Friday went a little smoother checking in our customers, all though I still had a few other issues? You can never totally go with the plan and I'm constantly improvising something .This time it was the red baron. Farting around with the spark plug wires I was confident I had my missing problem solved. I head up to North country food fuel gas, up and I'm still not happy with the red baron so I pop the hood and start messing with the wires again. I hit the lake and now its running worse then ever? Oh well new wires are coming so I forge my way out too finish prepping. My timing is perfect all day long as I get every one checked in as they arrive. Of course mother nature now does a flip flop and there's standing water around the houses with the warm temps. Oh Well the January thaw! its better then 40 below,   Dan and Dave/Gravy" great nick name', checked into north Carolina, What a great couple of guys. Gravy was like having a helper out there as he was all over gassing up the generator and meeting the neighbors after I checked them in.  Justin and Megan arrived for north Dakota with Ron and Caroline arriving later in the day. Ken ,Carl, Terry and Sarah arrived  for florida right on time. They have ben here before and know the routine .  After taking care of them I was off to old Minnesota to prep for Wayne's arrival. Jarrod and Jeromy would not be arriving tell after 10 pm. for montana. After finishing up I headed to shore with the red baron running like crap.  Arriving back on shore I decide to again look at the plug wires and discover number 2 plug wire is not even on? To funny I guess! As my good friend wayne says, here at Cookie's we do it right cause we do it twice and some times even Thrice.  Plugging the wire in and just like that after all the fooling around re routing the wires  she running 80 % better . Man am I looking forward to installing them new wires today. Making the rounds later that evening and every one was having a grand time, Saturday morning and all the house's had some fish and fish stories to tell. How sweet a feeling that is! Saturday evening and again making the rounds we were starting to see a lot of standing water in the roads and around the houses. You can not beat mother nature out there no mater how hard you try.   We fished with Wayne and his sister Kathy where again the hammer was up to here old tricks landing a elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. I even got in on the action and landed a nice keeper walleye. Sunday morning  making the rounds and saying good by,  Gravy Dave and as Carolina  said" Dan was biscuit were headed home with only 5? I'm not sure if they ate any. Ken, Carl Sarah and Terry? in florida had a great time. They were going home with a few nice perch and 7 keepers walleyes plus a number of misses and a couple of pike released. A good fishy area in my book. North dakoata was the hot house. They were going home with 12 and also ate 6 . Megan cooked them up with a honey crust, drizzled with honey. Sounded great and there going to send me the receipt. Then as they were packing Justin landed a elusive yes elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. Man that house seems to catch fish. Saturday night they were playing a drinking game .Man were they having fun. Jarrod and Jeromy in montana also had some fish to take home so all in all every one had a grand time on a grand lake. Hillmens Highway should be in great shape once the cold air comes back.  The road is 7 miles out and as always you could land a 747 on it. There is a bridge around 1.7 miles. out., There's  a curve about 3.5 to the left then right. There's cones around 6 miles for now to let the new mile of road firm up. That's about it today. Busy day ahead but looking forward to hiitting the lake with my good friend Marty as he arrived early this morning with a buddy.

      We were up north of DL 15 miles this weekend and a ton of water on the ice but it's from melting snow.  All the holes we drilled the ice was still 1-2" above water level.  It was pretty hard getting around especially at accesses due to the snow melting.  Was very soft but I was able to get around with my Rav 4, barely made it up the accesses huge hill because traction control turned off but made it though!  We had 18-19" of ice 12-14" of it was clear ice.

      1/23/17    Night crappie bite is on. Hit Waconia Saturday evening. Got a good sunfish bite half hour before sunset until dark. Crappies bit well from six to eight pm. Larger Tungsten Tubby in glow tipped with a wax worm and a small VMC spoon in glow pink fire UV tipped with a waxie were the best baits. Sunfish were near the bottom over a deep basin area adjacent to a shallower weedy area, and crappies moved through spread out over the bottom eight feet or so of the water column. Sunfish still biting during the day on Prior, but they are moving around a lot so you need to hole hop for a consistent bite. Numbers and size. Tiny Tungsten Tubby or Gill Pill with one or two red Eurolarvae were working well. An inline reel is a big help as it reduces line twist and keeps you jig from spinning and spooking finicky sunfish. Still sixteen to eighteen inches of ice on Waconia, and fifteen to sixteen on Prior. Water and slush on top, but more seasonal temps this week should firm things up. Good luck, be safe, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Sure wish that it would freeze up before the snow in the forecast comes
