Old School QDM

I've seen a couple old photos where half a log was filled with hung deer and always bookended with a few timberwolves. Doesn't really do justice to the lean years of white-tail management.

I believe that is called "balancing the herd"

Also, almost the only meat their families or lumber camp will live off of for the next year!

Cool pix!

Cool Pictures! That is heritage right there. You should send them to PETA members to show them how their ancestors stayed alive and fed their families.

One of my neighbors to my land in Wisconsin every year has deer hanging just like this. They do have a lot of land, and a quite afew people hunting with them, but they usualy have a good 15-20 deer hanging by the end of the season. Mostly bucks too. This year I will stop in a take a picture of them all and I will post it if its ok with them.

I dont want to get off the main subject to much, but yes some cold and some snow would be nice. The last couple years cleaning deer wasnt very fun, with all the woodticks crawling all over the hides crazy.gif

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?

      Yes.  On the north end.
