Warm opener

13 posts in this topic

I did find one evening to hunt this weekend and it all worked out ok. I sat in a new location and within 15 minutes saw my first deer of the year from the stand. She also caught me and we had a stare down and she won. Within the next two hours I had a total of 18 deer spotted and all but two came within 25 yards but they were all very wary as they all new I was there.

With about 1 hour to go before sunset, a shooter doe happen to stroll by at 15 yards and I center punched here and after 20 yards she fell. I had 2-3 deer that hung back and wouldnt show themselves and they well could have been a few bucks.

Not bad for a few hours out for the first day of the season but she could have been a little cooler as the day temp was 90.

That flattop was in the cooler very fast and cut up the next morning. These warm weather hunts kinda stink.

Congats HL! Sounds like a fun one even with the warm weather. I'd bet you had the shorts on underneath the bug tamer if it was in the 90s.

I'd much rather wait till the night time temps are cooler.. but you have to make hay.. LOL... again, congrats on the quick clean kill my brother! I hope to see some veni at a few of our Get togethers this winter.. LMAO!

I just looked in my freezer and had 6 packs of steaks left... had my parents and brother and his wife out for a great dinner... kept a few packs to keep the juices flowing.. LOL.

Bug tamer and a pair of cut offs and thats it. Only way to keep cool. The bugs were next to none but there was a 5-10mph wind and it did pour rain for one half hour while I hunted.

I will wait a few more weeks and hopefully the temps will drop a bit.

harvey, congrats. Great start to the season.

Veni loin rapped in bacon sounds good.

I'm confused. Isn't the Archery Deer Season Opener on the 15th?

Nice to get that one stuck and done, eh Tom?? Now you can go get Mr. Big.

Yes, it was a warm weekend hunting here also. I've been hunting for quite a few years and I just can't get used to hunting in this heat.

      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!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
