Warm opener

Recommended Posts

harvey lee

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.

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.

      Are folks driving trucks out on Blue and/or Green yet? How thick is the ice now? Thanks.

      How thick is the ice on Blue now? Are people driving trucks out now? Same questions for Green lake.

      I’m not sure what all augers the clam extension fits. I know it fits ion because that’s what I use.. These things go right inside your drill and are adjustable from approximately 6 inches up to probably 14 to 16 inches, they work great. Take a look at them next time you see them in the store to see if they fit your auger. Mine stays on it all the time.

      I am also going to get a insulated lunch bag for the Ion x that should be coming today thanks for the tip! i was thinking that was the ticket anyways, its good to see others on the same page

      How about giving advice instead of telling others just to stay off? lets be more encouraging

      BASS LAKE is on the east- n/e side of Vermilion and is a short ride through the woods by snowmobile.  Went there last year and caught nothing but dinky perch ( fished the mid-south shore... deeper area).  It was a fun trip and a beautiful little lake.....  DNR info :  http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showreport.html?downum=69044600
