      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

I too cant see the picts.. but for reference.. it usually take a pretty darn good 8 point buck to make Pope... It either has to have a lot of mass and a decent spread or tall tines.. 125 inches is quite a bit.. or a decent 10 point should make it.

I think you would be surprised at what makes a Pope & Young deer.

Here are a couple that have qualified:

This deer had 8 points and went into the books at 140 3/8

Roush_whitetail.jpg

Another 8 Point P&Y 138 2/8

Zirkle_whitetail.jpg

Just made it....128 4/8

Peperis_whitetail.jpg

125 2/8

Novak_whitetail.jpg

So now lets see your deer and compare wink.gif

Although 10 points are ideal and will really help get you in these 8's are just fine grin.gif

I am chasing a 10 on my land right now that my taxidermy buddy estimates at 140. I am sure many can agree when I say scoring a deer from a picture can be tricky but a trained eye can usually get pretty close. I don't have a trained eye by any means that is why I send all my pics to my buddy!

Thanks for the post luc--- its best to look at deer picts and know the score... But you can see all those deer I would call above average 8's... they either have mass or tine length... I however wouldnt have guess that top pict to score that high... awesome deer!!!! Those G3's are way way way impressive! Hence probably where it gets its score.! Do you happen to know inside spread on that top deer?

I was surprised by that one as well! I do not know the spread. I just found these as good true verified examples from the P&Y site. Thought it would help to actually see some racks with some numbers. It is very tough for me to gauge....I just see antlers smirk.gif When other people look they see numbers. Wouldn't it be so cool to get a P& Y buck! Hanging on the wall with a ribbon! I bet you or I would be telling that story until the day we died! grin.gif I know I would!

Not sure If I can do this but here is a score sheet to get a more of an idea of what we are looking for:

Pics can be decieving, I didn't think that the buck I shot would score 168. He is a nice buck, but the pictures don't do his mass justice. Judging by the pics of my deer, I would say that he was a 140-150 class buck, we measured twice and added them up three times, he scored 168 every time. The big deciever is mass and main beam length. Its hard to tell main beam length and mass from a pic. Most people will tell you that a 25+ main beam length will get you in, mine was only 22 in. His mass was horizonatal, not vertical, so in the pics, he doesn't look that massive but he really is. At any rate, still all nice deer. I suppose you could practice your lasso skills, rope them, score them, then go get em. grin.gif

Once again, LuciandTim, thanks for all your pictures and just looking at mine, the look like they are in the 125-140 range but like you said I dont have the best eye for that stuff so just my guess. Thanks,

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
    • Mark
      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.  
    • IceHawk
      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
