5 minute bow hunt...

9 posts in this topic

I had the shortest deer hunt of my life today! I was settled into the tree at 11:31 am and was done hunting at 11:36 am. My dad arrowed a doe on Tuesday night so the pressure was on today. I got into his stand ( grin.gif ) which is on a hardwood ridge that runs south of our food plot west/east. There's some low areas and thick popple on each side of the ridge and the bedding area is to the east of the stand, behind me. I used my Primos can call a few times, followed by 5-6 excited buck grunts. I look to my right and here is a spike at 50 yds lip curling. He came in on a string at a fast walk. I drew, grunted, and he stopped. I double lunged him at 12 yds and he ran about 40yds before crashing. I've had a drought the last 2 years so I was pumped big time.

Congrats. To me, all deer with a bow are truely a trophy be it a buck or a doe. Not everyone has the skill and patience to harvest a deer with a stick and string.

I really enjoy seeing the pictures of all the deer that are harvested by the Fishing Minnesota members and everything you all contribute. Thats what makes this archery forum what it is.

That's exciting. Congratulations. I had a similar situation last year. I hadn't even had an arrow knocked yet and I had a fork coming down the trail. Thank goodness he milled around until I could get situated.

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
