so how has everyone's archery seasson been going? been seeing much?s anyone get out to the doe season with any luck? I personally have not seen much at all since opening weekend and I have been getting out about 2-3 times a week. I think i'm going to pull my stands. I have been hunting the refuge area. Speaking of the refuge, early doe season hunters were not allowed to hunt in the refuge, am i correct?

I shot my 2 does early Saturday AM. I believe you could hunt the Bemidji refuge(same as regular rifle) but not the Schoolcraft. Iheard only 1 shot(besides mine) in my area all weekend so there sure wasn't too much pressure on them.

you could not hunt the bemidji refuge with a rifle this past weekend, it was archery only. but it was still open for small game. Only saw three does where i was but never got a shot due to some thick brush. Sure seemed to be a lot of shooting from duck hunters though.

From 4am to 5am going south from Bemidji to Akeley this morning, I counted 112 deer (yes, one hundred and twelve). I saw 24 from Akeley to Motley. No big herds, just 2-4 at a time (a lot of times!). Thin the herd . . .

Even going from Bemidji to Bagley at night will show dozens, they are thick as usual.

Drove around Northome this past weekend and counted 102 deer with 15 bucks. One field had 37 deer on it, and what a sight to see. Had the daughter with and she kept track in a note book.

Funny how they start to get scarce 'bout 8 days from now ...

Good news is the food shelf will be stocked this winter!

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
