I'm heading to Mcgregor area for deer this year. It will be my first year with a rifle and I'm excited about it. I've shot many deer with bow and shotguns but just the fact it's something different has me pumped. Now if only I can find a big buck.

Who knows what's gonna meander down the trail.

I've always been a meat eater ,but if a big buck strolls by I'll have to whack him.

Other then that a few does would suite me just fine.

I could get back out for some late season bill action.

CK - Still some bills around? Toying with the idea of a road trip from Duluth to Gun Lake for a morning shoot...IF there are a few ducks around.

PS - We've never met but good luck in the woods - I've sure enjoyed reading your reports and comments along the way. Like my dead Uncle Rudy used to say, when he was alive, "Shoot hard boys".

I was on Minnewawa last weekend and had divers scooting through.We shot some redheads and ringers.

I'd think with the water freezing up in Canada the big bills should be moving down.

I've not heard anything from Gun.

Minnewawa is inline with the Rice Lake Refuge.

The Kimberley Bog has had some good action and that lil Newstrom too.

Got all my ducks in a row this afternoon and evening. I was not sure if I was going to deer hunt until this morning! Went out this after noon and checked stands and added one portable. Seen good sings of deer movement, but did not see any deer. Talked to the farmer east of the land and he said he has not noticed any good sized bucks. Go figure! He did take down his corn field today, which forces deer to cover in the woods and swap I hunt. This is a plus! I put a portable stand out in the swap area next to a creek. This will be the first year I have hunted in the swap area. I am hoping this will increase my chances.

Headed back home and started gathering all my hunting gear and changing barrel on my Rem. auto to my slug barrel. Mounted scope. Headed up and got license and B.S.ed with Hardware store guy. Came home and sited gun. Gathering the last of my stuff and loaded truck up. Watching weather right now and seems like it will be in the 50's Sat. and possibly 60's Sun... Getting ready for bed and going to be in stand a half hour before shooting starts.

I love and Nothing like deer opener!

Hopefully we get a buck and fill other tag right away in morning. I could only wish!

Good luck!

Saw more signs then deer...the only buck I saw was being chased by 2 dogs...Got a shot at the buck and missed. Got a shot at the dogs and missed too....but one of the didn't like gun shot noise...hopefully the DNR will find them. 2 cocoa colored lab mixes, they had collars but no tags and one of the neighbors says he has seen them running around for a week or more now.

I never saw a deer.

I did see a hunter driving through the woods with his atv and he had a gun over his shoulder uncased.

I pulled my camera out and told him he was on video.

Hopefully he'll remember that.

He did case up and drove off.Still after hours ,but I had to get rid of him.

It shot my evening hunt.

I didn't see a single deer while hunting this weekend either. I almost hit 3 different deer with the car on Friday night though. First time in at least 5 years that I didn't at least see a bunch of deer on opening weekend. The swamp I usually hunt was wetter than ever, so I'm sure that didn't help. I also heard a bunch of wolves awfully close, also not the best thing if you're trying to fill a tag. Next weekend I'll have to head for higher ground.

Hey guys.

Do any of you hunt or ever hunted the Wealthwood SF? I am going to be up in the area in the next couple weeks and wondering if it is hunted HEAVY with blaze everywhere or if it is not too bad. I would be by myself and maybe sneak in there somewhere for a half day and see how it goes..?? If it is a war zone shocked.gif I might pass. Thanks for any info.

Deer hunting for my family means watching for poachers, and this year is no different. I would like to congradulate the person or persons that shot the deer in the middle of the road friday night or early saturaday morning in the headlights of the pickup, you are quite a sportsman!! and a heck of a hunter. I hope you told your wife or children how you sat in the stand all day and waited for the deer to come in, when really u shot it illegally and most likely sat at the bar the rest of the weekend.

To all other "road" hunters the DNR has been contacted and next time it could be a deer, or it could be a ticket waiting to happen?!!!!

panfishhunter, It's too bad it is this way, I have had similar problems with Poachers, but I now make sure everyone around knows that I have, and will call them in, and that I have Unlimited Poacher Tags to fill again this year!!! wink.gif

When one person takes legal action, it encourages others who were afraid, to do the same... shocked.gif

Of course there's always at least one Buffoon willing to... Make My Day... crazy.gif

For those still interested...

Had good luck hunting just north of McGregor. Saw deer everytime but once going out including bucks. During daytime scouting walks was also seeing deer. Ended up taking a 11ptr that's nothing special for size.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
    • Chevy Nation
      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
