Lottery area hunting??

4 posts in this topic

For anybody that hunts in the lottery areas how was it? My zone (424) which is lottery, was pretty poor. Just curious what everybody saw and maybe some more ideas for raising the deer herd.

I hunt 440 and around us it was slow not alot of shots but could be alot of things, in our group had two doe tags and my son was the only one to tag a deer, but we did see some small bucks but we would like them to get bigger so we let them walk, we will see what will go on next weekend.

They choked down our doe tags to 15 I believe in 431. We did see probably 5-6 bucks (one of them we might have seen twice) three of them were forks, 1-2 were 6's maybe the same one... and one reeeeally nice buck. He is still around if the neighbors didn't get him. We also saw a good amount of does and yearling's prob 10-15 depending on multiple sightings. We ended up getting a six point and a fork for the group of 4.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.

      Are the catfish still biting decent out there? Usually make it up earlier in the year have not made it up yet this year but I'm looking to come up one of the next couple evenings.
