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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
