      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

cull buck down

Recommended Posts

Shot a nice call buck Wed. night I had a buddy of mine with and we both sat in my 2 man ladder stand. I gave my buddy first crack at the buck when he came in and at ten feet he missed and then he missed again at 15 yards and then again at 20 yards Ya that's right he missed 3 times and ten minutes later the buck came right back in and at 10 feet and that's when I shot him because my buddy was out of arrows and the buck ran 20 yards and down he went double lung and top of the heart. In my buddies defense this is his 2nd year bowhunting and the first time he had a deer close enough to shoot and he was shaking so bad I thought the tree was going to tip over. It was still a great experience when you can share times like that with friends and family.

That was a gret time I bet! You can give him a good hearted ribbing now and still enjoyed the time in the stand!

Got any pics of the deer? someone is bound to ask!?

No I didn't get any pictures it started to rain hard when I was gutting it and after that straight to the freezer he went. His 8 point rack is nothing great just really thin and odd and he was already 3 years old. Great buck to get out of the gene pool and he had road rash on his left shoulder. I do have a trailcam picture of him if I could e-mail to someone to put on the form for me that would be great.

You must have meant cull buck. Are you actively managing the property and removing inferior genes from the herd? If so, what are some of your approaches to accomplishing this when in MN you can only harvest one buck per year/person? Do alot of people hunt your property...I am just curious.

I find people that just want to shoot a deer and are not looking just for mr.big and once I get one of those cull deer patterned I will ask them if they want to go hunting it's just that simple I guess does that anwser your ques.

Yeah that is the perfect answer. Sounds like you are doing things the right way...getting others involved etc...We need people like in the sport...it would be an awesome twist if you got some younger "next generation" hunters involved to introduce them to the sport and accomplish your management goals. Either way sounds like you are doing good thing for your deer heard and for friends etc...

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
