2 groups tagged out first morning. I didn't hear about the last group. As it gets closer to your hunt, I'd suggest calling the Thief Lake staff. They'll have the most recent information on elk locations.

Nice going for the groups that connected. Having drawn a tag in 2005, I really wanted to come up and hang out with the great friends I made during that hunt.

Alas, corn chopping duties ruled the day....

To all: Please think about joining and/or attending a Rocky Mountain Elk Chapter or event. They are making a big difference in the elk herds in this state.

Agreed Gissert, the RMEF, along with many of it's partners, are making great strides in conservation in MN. This was the highest fund raising year for the RMEF in MN, so 2008 should see a lot of new projects.

I can't remember what chapter you belong too, but if you have a banquet coming up will you let me know. Thanks

Shoot me an email nate at grandsuperiordotcom. I have a 300 person offsite catering job that night, but I would be happy to donate a stay and dinner for the silent auction.

Those are some sweet pics!!! It is crazy to think of the elk roaming in MN, but my fiend works NW MN for the DNR and he said there are quite a few of them!! I live in AZ and there are some big ones out here in the Flagstaff area.

i posted this link before, but in case anyone missed it, or cares....there's a few more pictures of the kittson county elk herd on here.

http://www.wiktel.net/birdsanctuary/elk.htm

opening of bow hunting weekend, i got chased back to my car by the bull........it was pretty much dark and i got the bright idea to practice my vocalizations. He would just kind of look at me like what the heck are you doing. - then i tried a moose "mew"....the big sucker started walking towards me.....i did it again and he took off running straight for me.....that's the fastest i think i've ever run in my life, but it was a crazy cool experience. -i suppose he was about 25-30 yards away when i finally got back to the car......then he chased me for a bit when i was driving away......The offer is open to anyone on here....if you want to see the Kittson County herd close up....let me know, we have a cabin you're welcome to stay at for free, just so long as you're respectfull to the place and the neighbors......pm me if intereseted

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
