Have you found that BIG BUCK YET???

10 posts in this topic

Any reports of the one you want yet? I have seen a few earlier and during the week or so of the season I actually have noticed alot of deer out. I went out on Sunday nite in the 40 mph wind and 90 degree heat. A friend of mine said it would be slow cause the weather... Then he asked me "What are you gonna do?" ""I'm goin" I said. Needless to say on monday nite he was out huntin in the rain. After he saw a picture of a Wallhanger come across his phone at about 10:00 p.m. on Sun. nite he called wondering who had sent him a pic. It was another friends phone so he had questions. Needless to say, His view on stalking a big buck on a hot Sunday nite will probably take presedence over watching a FORD WHOOP ON A CHEVY in a NASCAR race now and forever!!! I will find someone smart enuff to post pics. and tell the story in the next few days. Until then I'll be sittin on the couch eatin back straps watchin the chase!! thanks, "BIFFLEFAN"

That one looks to be in pretty good shape. Afew that I have got look good, mostly young ones. I have yet to get one with the bow. Does it seem like the numbers are up that way? Shae, can I get you or someone's e-mail so I can try and send a few pics to post? Thanks.

And yes the numbers do seem up but we will be putting the hurt on them once deer hunting is over.

I am already tryin. Now that I am looking for them it seems alot harder to find them. Once some more of the crops come off and the snow hits it should be easier. I had some luck callin them for a few days but that has gotten tougher too. Other times I wish I had a HUMVEE with a turret and a .50 cal. with a good driver. cool.gif

Nice "ote"

Umm ... Your fishing pic (avatar) makes you looks a little skinnier -- any idea if that can work for me?

Just kidding, my Brother! wink.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifcool.gif

      I would say Pike fishing got noticeably worse after the first year of spearing.  Used to catch lots of big pike while musky fishing..  I didn't catch a single one last year.  Makes me sad and angry, to be honest.

      The taxidermist won't know how to mount a fish of this size A true trophy of a life time.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.
