I saw 136 deer this morning

5 posts in this topic

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 . . .

I travel 64 from the north end to akeley, the dithches were mowed a couple time and then some rain = lots of deer in the ditches. One must be very carefull. Once the bucks start chasing does there will alot of deer hit by cars.

If one were to want to take a newbie hunter out for their first deer hunt, would there be a decent chance at getting a doe or 2 out of the area?

that is a ton of deer.

Do you think the population is getting bigger and bigger every year now since we dont get the huge snow falls.

I doubt the population is getting bigger. The DNR has lowered the bag to 2 deer from 5 through this area. I assume they base that on deer counts. 112 is a lot of deer to see, but like another poster noted, the ditches are mowed and all the deer come out for something green. Thats a 20 mile stretch of highway and just going back 1/2 mile from each side gives you 20 square miles. If the population is 20 deer per square mile he has seen half the deer.

      This ice season  has been in the books on the st croix for about a week now. I ended my year out there with a 50" sturgeon.

      I have been busy with Work ... went down to check it out North access this morning.  Definitely good enough to walk out.  a tall guy walked a big sled right out.  was also a clam 2 seater pull over out on the ice.  The wind however is blowing very cold!  I do not have a sled for walking out ... so hoping for ATV ice soon!  I went searching at Princeton Wallmart if they had any leftover sleds, no go.  Will have to pick one up this week.   Bob
