is it to close to the season to go find a spot

6 posts in this topic

i already have a few spots i liked in public land and kind of have like 10 different places i picked out to be able to set up depending on different wind directions and in case these places are occupied. theyre on CARLOS AVERY WMA

i want to actually go place 10 20 30 and 40 yard markers is it too late to do that?

Will my scent still be there on opening day of bow season?

if anyone wants to share some hot spots with me let me know. im not out there for a monster buck im out there to harvest some meat... actually the main reason is to get my brother to harvest his first deer.

I would go and place those markers now. Remember that whenever it rains all your scent will wash away. I would also go in as scent free as possible and leave without delay. This should not be of any problem for you.

You have plenty of time. I would not hesitate. I have a couple spots as I live only 5 minutes from a few spots. I still have to get out scouting I usually do most of my pre season the first week of Sept.

I've moved stands during the bow season and increased the amount of deer that I see. Thats why I like portable stands, easy up, easy down. You will need to put it off the beaten path though. You don't want the deer to have to walk under or around your stand, they shouldn't know its there.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
