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 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 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!
