I heard 2 shots all a.m. east of Northfield, we went 2 check the spot last night, found a scrape so I put out the camera, with a drip-bag and man did that deer get mad that sombody else was in his spot! The scrape is now the size of a car, since 5 last night, and at 10:41 he showed up on my camera, a 9er, they're nocturnal still even w/o the moon mad.gif Any advice? confused.gif

I tried deer hunting the state land in this area. It was just like an Ice Fishing Turnie. As soon as one hunter was out of site another would come into view. Nice and evenly spaced with half of them shooting at every bit of wildlife that showed up. Sorry but that just isn't hunting!

Otter, good one there as most all are out hunting and the lakes are pretty open.

French lake Kid, those bucks will stay fairly nocturnal until the does are very receptive. Then they will make there mistake if one is to be made. All one can do is hunt all day and hope he walks by or gets chased out of his bedding area.

3 days ago I almost hit a deer with my car on my way to work. Yesterday the car in front of me hit a deer. Either the land owners around here should learn how to shoot straight or they should let people who can shoot straight hunt there land!

Yesterday a guy from work was following a car on his way to work that hit a Deer.

I have hit 3 Deer with a car in the last 5 years!

I'm starting to think the people around here don't know how to hunt or shoot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

good thing i may invest in a flack jacket and body armor to hunt public land form now on, good thing i have a friend who talked to his buddy that doesnt let no one hunt his land till this yr he gave me permisson to hunt it by myself no one else is allowed, all others are banned from there after someone put a slug right through the barn wall to hit his prized winning car. when i shoot deer i make dang sure whats behind the target and if i cant make the shot i dont, adrian seen me shoot he was impressed that i hardly waste shots like most people do. all my deer taken been under 20 yrds or less. deer that r more then 50 yrd or better r more likely to miss the deer from long range then short.

I think I may be heading to the Milk River for Thanksgiving. I may even get a tag for a deer.

If the rut is on, it is early this year but the new moon and rut is about right.

      The four I use are pretty shallow for at least the first hundred yards, but I've never damaged my boat or prop. Just gotta take it slow and trim the motor up.    I use Isle, Cove, Garrison, and the one near the casino, Shaboshkung or whatever.

      great fish!

      Greetings fishermen and women! Its great being back in the swing of things and better yet in the boat! Both the MN and Ontario season is now open and fishing has been great! Staffers here at Flag Island Resort have been busy getting ready for the upcoming summer months with some deep cleaning, window washing, grounds work and remodeling!   On the Minnesota side anglers have been catching nice saugers, walleyes and perch. Soon the crappies should be finding their way into the shallows around Angle Inlet and other small creeks and the walleyes have spawned out over the past couple of weeks. With the warmer temps that started out last week anglers were finding fish in shallower water between 5-17 feet now, with the cooler temps, rain and winds most of the fish have been pushed deeper into the 16-26 foot range. Points and reefs close to large land masses adjacent to sand and rubble have been hot locations. Anglers have found fish near Soldier’s, Little Oak, Oak Island and NW Point. The water surface temp has been in that 50-55 degree range. Right now it seems like everything is working from ¼ to 3/8 jigs to slow trolling with raps in the shallows as well as trolling spinners keeping on the move at 0.9 mph.   Over in Ontario, the walleye, sauger, crappie, perch and pike have been hungry. Perch and crappie should be spawning soon. Crappies are being caught around the 20 foot mark . Sandy bays and points have been best for the walleye and crappie bite while the perch are still caught in the rocks. Many pike have been caught in areas with current. There have been reports of a lot of smallmouth mixed in with the walleyes.  Jigging with a ¼-3/8 ounce jig has been the ticket and the water temp has been around 49-52 degrees.   We hope to see you up here soon! Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011

      Going up on 6/3.     Just looking for water temps and reports for what the bass might be doing.     Thanks, Shack

        Yup, its a Joke.. i've complained many times.   some small time radio station thinks they are sooo important running it, so they can get a whopping $2500 profit off sponsors maybe.   Plus I stood at the weigh in on day 1 and watching at least 15-20 Walleyes DIE in the net.   Many 18-20inchers.  the waves were so bad that the walleyes just banged around in the live well for 8 hours.   Ban these already!    there will be 3 tournaments this year.

      Just 1?  It doesn't look like you'll need your winter boots or snow shovel but I would bring the rain gear. Forcast I seen said chance of rain for 3 days this weekend.

      Ice is out on most area lakes.

      Thanks for the report. Those 14" fish are my favorite for eating.   If I had one of those underwater cameras I'm not sure I would be able to pull myself away from watching it, that sounds like a ton of fun!
