We are in 72 and are really pumped. I watched the moose calling video again last night and just can't wait to be out there. Good Luck and Be Safe!

89B,

Where you guys staying? We'll be at Lake Jeanette campground. Look around for the black suburban and Prowler camper.

good luck to all of you that are going this year. it looks like they should be in full rut. calling should be great if the wind stays calm.

I may be staying at a bunkhouse near the moose loop road, but I'm still waiting on a confirmation. If that doesn't work out, I may be staying at the same campground as you, or the Echo Lake campground. If that doesn't work out, then I'm just camping out in the back of my truck on one of the turn-offs...a blue Dodge Dakota with a black topper and the Ruger stickers on the side. It's all good to me. grin.gif If I see you, I'll stop by and maybe we can share a coffee, pop, or beer and compare notes.

We hunted Zone 28 Saturday with no luck. Lots of wind made for difficult calling. We managed to call in a couple timber wolfs but that was it. Pull out today because of the rain. Anyone have any luck?

I just spoke with my roommate. He got around a 900 lb. bull out of zone 21 today around noon.

BigDrift,

Did you guys get one? I never made it to your campsite...was always coming out in the dark and was too tired and hungry, so I'd head right for the sleeping quarters. Hope you had luck. I saw a massive bull (I keep calling it a "postcard bull" to my friends) on the first Tuesday and ended up with a small bull on the second Saturday. After packing out the meat, I am glad it was a small one. wink.gif

Thanks benelli_dude for the tips! grin.gif

If you are talking about whoever was driving the white truck from Cook, I'm not sure. I never saw him. I know I heard him calling for a few days in a row and I saw his truck parked at the same clearing this past Sunday, so I'm guessing that guy didn't get one yet. I saw a lot of sign in that Lake Jeanette clearing I was hunting when you saw me, and I even saw the back-end of one that first Monday in there, but I moved closer to the other end of the zone. No hunters down there. That's where I got mine. The guy from Melrose that I met at the place I rented out was coming back this week, so I know he didn't get one yet.

Good job!

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
