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.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
