My 1st archery buck!

Young Gun

Harvey Lee, look at this baby. Hunted almost every single night since opener. Sat through rain and wind and some of the most skeeter infested woods that you'd ever seen.

Tonight was my night. After passing on a few forks and 6 point baskets I place my Rage mecahnical just behind the shoulder on a 1/4 away shot. 32 yard shot. Huge entrance.

Nice nine pointer with some nice split brow tines. laugh.gif

Equipment used, Martin Bengal, Carbon Express Terminator, Rage 2 blade mechanicals, Lumenok lighted arrow nock.

p.s. thanks for the sweet rod. I'm gonna lay the smack down on some slabs with that baby this winter. wink.gif

Nice buck and congrats!!! How far did he go after the shot. I'm hoping to be out of work today at 2:30 and have my picture posted Monday AM. I have seen the buck I'm looking for twice now in the last week but he has out smarted me both times. The climber is coming with me this evening and will see if I can catch him off guard. Great Picture!!! Way to go on your first bow buck too.

Great buck, Feels pretty good getting that first one out of the way. So what time of night did you get to bed after showing everyone you knew.

I know thats what i did, my first bow kill is the one by my name and i am sure half my family saw the thing that night.

Great job wink.gif

      Stopped by the lake on Friday and asked a gentleman that was out fishing.  He said 2.5" of ice.

      4+” on 1st lake on forest last night12/10/17. 7 houses out.

      Figured I would start a fishing report to keep it separate from someone trying to get ice thicknesses.  Fished three different lakes this weekend.  First lake we got to on Saturday had a side by side on it so we felt safe walking.  Hole at access had 7" and we stopped in a few holes along the way fishing and we found an average of 8".  This lake was up on the WE Reservation, long skinny and deep.  Fishing was hit and miss pike were chasing around the gills.  Caught a few big bass which was fun on the UL's and caught a few small gills.  Found a few keeper crappies and kept enough for a meal.  Average was around 11" for crappies and 7" for gills biggest being a 13" crappie.  Second lake is a very known walleye lake around DL.  we had 8" out there also.  Made the hike out to a shoreline break/point and set up with tip ups and jigging spoons.  I suck at walleye fishing and struck out.  Buddies that were 10-15' on either side of me landed 2 EACH and the one tip up 30 feet away also landed one.  Perch were THICK!  I only caught 4-6" perch. Sunday my fishing partner over slept so I went chasing bluegills and crappies on a small lake.  Drilled holes from 42' to 14'.  Fishing was SLOW until the sun came out and then the sunnies were showing up in 38' suspended and aggressive.  Hole hopped because they were all 4-6" but that's all i could find out deep.  As dark came closer my friends started appearing and we could follow the fish up shallower.  Ended up with a few meals for a buddy and his daughter who came out.  A lot of weeding through small ones for keepers.  Very spooky fish.  Aggressive jigging to attract and then they pretty much didn't want it moved.  Wax worms were key last night. Good luck fishing.

      Yikes!  I haven't fished OT County yet but been on four different lakes in Becker.  Last weekend bigger shallower lake was at 7".  This weekend skinny long deep lake was at 8" and it had a side by side on the lake. Large body of water that when it warmed up reopened had 8".  Went to my honey hole and had 10.25-10.5" on it.  Dang near drove out but figured I'd wait so I drilled about 150 holes yesterday and didn't find any thin ice spots.  My shoulder hurts from drilling holes this weekend and carrying around my big 10" auger lol.   Becker County report.  Fish were SPOOKY!!!  Tried a few lakes for panfish and didn't really get into them but they were spooky.  They prefered smaller jigs tipped with wax worms, tried soft plastics but they wanted real things this weekend was my finding.  Fished a lake Saturday night right before dark had tip ups out and jigging with spoons.  One eye came on a tip up other 4 came on spoons.  Had guys 15 feet from me on both sides both catch 2 and the tip up was another 30 feet the other way and I didn't get a bite or a mark!!!!  That's my luck though.  People catching walleyes what I'm hearing are downsized baits on dead sticks.  Buddy got a 6.5 pounder C&R on a crappie/fathead fishing for perch mid day.  I don't know if weather has them in a funk or what.  Panfish are spooky and smaller jigs worked better 4 mm and 3 mm had better results then 5 mm.  5 mm I was finding was spooking fish when they would get near.  I drilled holes from 42' to 14' and had best luck when sun came out in 38 feet but I could follow the schools shallower as the sun set ultimately ended up in 19-21' for crappies and gills.
