I'm heading home to Morris this weekend for 4A deer hunting hoping to break my 3-year buckless rut. Who else is going to be in the field this weekend?

I'll be out second weekend in the Glenwood area. Forecast looks like we have a very good chance at snow on the ground by then. Opening weekend - not so much.

Just north of Miltona...same here.

We did quite well, but others did not (it appeared). The deer were running last night (so I heard).

Saw 3 bucks on our land Saturday and got two. None were real big though.

By Norcross, Not too great two does out of 8 people. I think the #'s were down also. So it is great that the DNR has the new limits set.

Millerville-Leaf Valley

Worked hard to go 2 for 3. Dad got a 6er on Saturday would have let it pass but he hadn't had an opportunity yet and I got a doe Saturday afternoon my first opportunity also. No shots fired first weekend. Not very much sign around, of course there are 3 new trailers and 5 new houses within a mile of my stand in the last 5 years.

We hunt between Miltona and Leaf Valley.

Got 7 for 9 weekend 1. Got 4 more the next weekend (not everyone hunted, but added 3 more hunters that couldn't hunt the first weekend). We then quit, as we have enought venison.

Saw 5 deer on Hwy 14 Sunday night at 8:00 between Leaf Valley and Hwy 29. Two were nice bucks....

They land I own (bought from my father and separate from our "main" hunting area) has not done well for deer the last 3 years. This year we got 5 deer in this area...3 of them were bucks from 6 - 8 points.

This last weekend, all of our deer were shot on drives as they weren't running at all.

Just got back. Had to switch to the second season at the last minute. Our group went 2 of 6 on bucks. Nothing for me though.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Good opener last year!  Anywhere near as good this year?

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
