Have you guys seen very many rubs? I have not seen much. Are they rubbing yet?

I have a cabin about an hour north of the cities, and saw 2 bucks come in the yard that were in the process of shedding the velvet... rubs will follow soon I would think.

I dont thing they really start shredding trees just yet, that intensifies every day now as they strengthen their neck muscles, so the rubbing will increase. So will their body size!!!

Interesting note.... I didnt realize how fast the antler polishing process happened! I got a pic of a nice buck on Oct. 3rd (a 2 1/2 yr old 10 point) his right antler was all bloody, and his left was all shredding velvet hanging there.... The next night I got his picture agian (less than 24 hours later) and his antlers were polished beautiful brown with no sign of blood or velvet! I can even see the tree bark in his bases! ooo.gif I guess I was amazed at how quickly they cleaned up. I figured it would take a few days anyway?? Just though that was neat to capture on film!

I've seen a few small trees rubbed. I also saw a scrape about a week ago. I've never seen one this early before.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
