Great buck, Did you age that deer? I seems that he should have been heavier. I shot a 5 1/2 year old eight last year that was 228 1/2 lbs.

Deer weights are going to vary a lot the next couple of weeks. Last year I shot a 2 1/2 year old that weighed 190 lbs. This year I shot an 11 pointer that weighed 192 pounds, probably 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 year old deer. Last year during the peak of the rut, a relative of mine shot a very nice 14 point buck that only weight 150 pounds. He was a 200 pound deer on the September trail cam pics. The bucks are running a ton right now and are burning off a lot of calories. During the rut, they will bypass food for lovin.

I wish I would have shot my buck last year earlear. I harvested him on November 12th. He would have been 250+ a month before.

I dont think some people realize how much 200 or 250 pounds is. When i was at the meat locker last weekend i asked how many deer a year he gets that are over 200 lbs. he said usually about 2. It takes a HUGE HUGE HUGE deer to go over 200 pounds.

Perch, I agree, 250 is a big deer, but with two under my belt at just about 200 in consecutive years, I have a good idea of what a 200+ pound deer will look like. The 190 pounders were both field dressed at their 190 and 192 lb weights, they were well over the 200 lb live weight range. Also, I'm not sure where you are located, but the SEMN mature deer will average between 150-200 lbs, so of course there will be some higher and some lower.

BTW, the original reason I posted. Slacker, that is a sweet rack. Nice deer.

R U two on the same page. There is a difference between field dressed weight and normal weight. I agree you don't see many deer go over 200 field dressed.

Dad's biggest a few years ago weighed 240 dressed and had a 28" neck. It won the biggest deer contest in Grand Rapids.

Moo.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Sounds like my problem, Thanks

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
