TRF aea deer hunting luck?

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone been out lately? If so, what direction has the wind been from? Cool nights? Are the leaves starting to fall down yet? Opening weekend was a bust for me...wind was wrong and way to gusty, leaves hadn't started to change let alone fall so you couldn't see nor hear them move. Looking forward to getting back up soon though.

No one has been bow hunting up there? No deer on the ground yet? There has to be more than just me trying to get an early season deer in that area. I hunt private land, so I wouldn't know if there are others out and about on public land or not.

mnrookie78,some deer have been taken. A lot of the hunters are waiting for some cooler weather. It was cool today with the forecast cool thru Friday. Lots of geese migrating thru today (sun.) Good Luck!!!

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
