public land west of Palisade

5 posts in this topic

A buddy and I are going to try the public piece of property west of 169 a couple miles on County Road 3 (just past Round Lake) this year for deer (his parents have a cabin down the road). Anyone know if that gets pounded or not? We are lucky in that we have weekdays off to hunt, but wondering if it is even worth while to try if it is out hunted during the weekend.

I was just out there yesterday grouse hunting. Or at least in very close proximity. It looks like it probably gets a ton of people deer hunting the entire area as we saw a number of temporary makeshift deer camps in the area. However, there are a mess of deer in the area, so you might get a shot off.

That area where 1 splits from 3. I do not know if other hunters are in there but I do know there are a bunch of deer around there.

You should be good to go during the week.

The 1st week is sorta crazy ,but after that it mellows out.

I have to say during the week it is fairly quiet on the weekends its really crazy that area ur talking gets hunted pretty hard all season. I have seen plenty of deer in the area. Just make sure u are on public land. I grew up in the area and most all take their deer hunting extreamly seriously. Good luck may the big buck come your way!!!

thanks for the replies. I know we've seen lots of deer in the past. I am working on putting the edges of the public land into the old GPS so we stay on course. Good luck to all and shoot straight.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
