Anyone seeing any deer in the area?

Recommended Posts

Just curious to see how people were doing with the bowhunting in the area so far this year. I've been out twice so far and the first trip was just a nice long quiet sit in the woods. The second trip I saw an 8 and a 3 point but no does untill I was driving up my driveway! Just curious to see if the deer are moving much. Good luck out there!

Saw 2 does last night, but not a lot of activity. Some of the beans in the area have been picked, but with the rain it's going to be awhile before the rest come out.

I also saw 2 does the other night and nothing the following night. It is much slower for me than in years past, I am not sure what is up - maybe the weather? I hunt the FL/Wyoming area and normally (other years) see deer in my area every night. Hopefully they start to move a bit more. I have seen a nice one on my trail camera, but it is always just after midnight. Best wishes to all!

I think this next week with the night time temps getting into the thirties things should get moving.

Yep, all around the area. Saw a nice 10 Friday at dark made a rub and opened a scrape but was too far away to get a shot. Saw a spike Saturday that ended up bedding at the base of my tree for almost two hours. One deer Sat night but couldn't tell if it was a buck or doe as it was too far out in the brush and didn't hunt yesterday evening. I'm hoping they kick into gear this week!

Nice deer!!! Last week the deer seemed to be moving more in my area. I saw a few smaller bucks sparring, still waiting for the one I want.

Tunrevir (or anyone else),

With temps expected to reach the 60's today, I need to get my deer in to get processed still today. Do you recommend anyone around FL?

I forgot to add that the bucks were really moving in the mornings this weekend. I saw two bucks on Saturday morning, and two bucks on Sunday.

I forgot to add that the bucks were really moving with the cool morning temps this past weekend. I saw two bucks on Saturday morning between 8:30 - 9:30, and two bucks on Sunday but earlier.

so haaad...I just emailed tunrevir a phone number for a place to process deer...I asked him to forward the number onto you (I'd post it here but I'm not sure on the forum rules). The person does a good job and is reasonably priced. Just north of North Shore Trail on Heath Ave. Congratulations on the deer, good work!

I know the place and would recommend it as well. I'm pretty sure they don't do sausage or jerky, though, so if that's something you wanted you'll have to bring your trimmings somewhere else.

Sniper, wolf and tunrevir, thanks for the info. I ended up taking a little time off of work and cut it up myself. I'll still need someone to bring my trimmings to, so thanks again for the input.

Good deal so haaad...G.C. does a good job on the deer. Last year I dropped off a deer Sunday night of gun opener weekend...I got a call Tuesday morning saying it was ready to pick up.

Great job on the buck! Good luck when you get out next.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
