BIG BUCK ENCOUNTER #1

2 posts in this topic

I just sat down in my tree when A northern Squall light up the sky and brought tons of lightning, thunder, and rain along with heavy winds. Back at the truck it was blue skies with another squall fast approaching. On the last hour of light I decided to bag it for the night and drove around scoping out clearcuts, powerlines, and open logging roads. No deer anywhere. I pulled in the driveway and got out of my truck. A whistle snort got my attention and I gasped out loud and my jaw hit the dirt when I saw him. ALL I COULD SEE WAS A ROCKING CHAIR ONTOP THAT DEER WEAVING AND BOUNDING INTO TTHE SWAMP!!!!! The rack was really thick nice beams well past its ears and tall. I thought a saw 5 tines on a side so possibly a ten point?? confused.gif I was kinda mad putting all this time into bowhunting with little to show for it and then MOJO is standing in my driveway. WHAT NERVE!!! It was awesome though! maybe its a sign.... grin.gif

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
