      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.

Nice buck. If you look in the Archery forum there is a thread that is just for bow kills going all season.

Nice buck!

My guess is that it was shot in Wisconsin. It looks like a Wis lic plate on the car.

could think of nobody more disserving of this trophy opportunity which he capitalized upon flawlessly.

The boy lost his father this year in late June, my cousin & best friend of 37 years. The bow he used was his father’s new Bowtech unit which he had just purchased and never got a chance to hunt with himself.

The boy took his father’s bow which he was so proud of & sealed the deal on this trophy buck.

I’m very proud of this young man and very happy that he will become a part of my hunting camp this year & hopefully will return for as many years as I have to live out on this earth.

He’s a fine young man, raised by the best man I have ever met, my best friend.

Dave-

I have heard of countless stories of hunters losing there dad, or grandpa, or even there best hunting buddy, and then that next closest season, they are blessed with a dandy. I have also been blessed like this. I truely believe those close to us that have passed are watching, and helping. Everytime I get in the woods I see little signs of my loved ones presence. Im not a real bible beater, but after enough of these miraculous experiences I know better than to call it anything but that. I cant tell you how many times I have sat down in my stand to talk with God or loved ones that have passed, and had immediate signs. Whether that be deer, or other animals, or anything that might remind me of that person, it always happens, and its never slight, Its always a strong "in your face sign". Thats a big reason why I love being out there...Im glad your nephew was able to harvest a great buck like that!

I am very happy for your nephew... what a great story. I absolutely agree with what hunter4life said... there is alot more than hunting that goes on in a tree stand or in the woods.

His dad was my best friend. words can not express the brotherly strength of our friendship.

When I went to his house after hearing of his accident (the day of) my family went to be with his family & try to stumble our way in some direction... not knowing what to do now?? I'm sure some of you understand & have been though it yourself.

I had a plan to build a cabin on some hunting land my wife & I had just acquired. we were really in no hurry with the project but suddenly a light came on, I asked the kid, my nephew, if he thought he might be able to come & help build the cabin with me & asked him if he would consider hunting with us & becoming part of our new camp we were putting together.

He said yes to both & the rest of the summer/fall from about July 1st & forward has been a blurr.

The popular opinion was that it could not be built in time for this deer rifle season that is now almost here.

Well, it is done. And we will begin something new this year that I hope lasts a very long time. Also in our group is my late friend's father (my uncle)

There are of course others in our party, my wife for one who is an avid hunter, my 3 children, only one of which is of hunting age so far. Also probably a couple of my friends, maybe my own father, possibly my little brother now & then...

But there are 3 guys that need this new bonding experience during this time of the year that we are coming up on. Well, me, the boy & my uncle, we need it like a flame needs oxygen.

Things will never be the same but we are better off going ahead together than we are seperately.

Hunter4life, i don't really know the bible from the dictionary myself, but still I do like to believe my cousin was in that stand with the boy assisting in a smooth draw, calm nerves, true aim & a crisp release...

Great story. It helps identify some of the real reasons we hunt together. Family and friends doing things together. Thanks for the story.

ND, I understand what you are going through. This is Minnesota where brothers are close, and cousins can be closer.

      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!
