A conservation officer escorted 2 people out the woods in the buffalo area on Sat. Baiting was the issue. If this is true, Thank you to however gave the TIP. Don't know if they were related to the Schmidt twins, but it was there property.

DNR was using aerial surveilance and GPS prior to the season...so it could have been something spotted from the air that tipped them off.

Way to go DNR! I am so sick and tired of the (Contact Us Please) that think they can bait deer and get away with it. I would like to see the penalties increase, more equipment taken, as well as thier priveleges removed for a couple of years. Baiting is flat out unethical and other hunters should be outraged at guys doing this.

I was biking a year ago on a bike trail and noticed red dots in the woods. I took a close look (yes, I tresspassed) and found a deer stand with apples tied with string all around the stand and a deer block.

I called TIP.

new this year, if you are baiting, the land gets closed to hunting for 10 days. its about time a law like this happens.

Does baiting make hunting more fun. To me hunting is thrilling because you don't bait and It's more difficult that way. If you want to shoot baited animals you should just as well go shoot cows in a fenced field eating at a corn trough. Of course I'm kidding to make a point. Besides you'd be the target for the Farmer if you we're doing that.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
