11 posts in this topic

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.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.

      I've seen a lot of people dragging raps for "crappies" before the opener

      Go down to MG and they will steer you in the right direction.  I know that  different release is used for braid.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.
