Any deer reports from down there? I'll be heading out for the 3B hunt a week from saturday in the Rollingstone-Altura area and I can't wait. Just curious what's going on right now and to see if there will be any deer still around. There usually is, but they always tend to be a bit skittish that second season.

Thanks, Coach Dog

sunday

i shot a buck this morning right at daylight, he came in chasing a hot doe, i hit him twice before he disapered into some thick brush, 15 min later as i climed down my stand and started walking his way another much larger buck came in grunting and snorting, he was fired up and looking for a fight, at first i thought it was the buck i shot and he had doubled back on me, i poped a quick shot at him but luckly missed, as he ran out the other side of the valley i heard some rustling in the bushes and sure enough there was my buck laying in the thickest nastyst cocklebur/rasberry bush in the woods, he's a leagle 9pt, with 7 main points and 2 small sticker points near the base of one antler, cooked up the tenderloins for supper this afternoon, and man its nice to taste fresh vinison again, this is the 2nd largest buck of my life behind an 11pt i shot a few years back

i have seen plenty of deer around, heading down to Lewiston, and then Altua today (not for hunting) but I'll do some road glassing. I'll let you know what I see. But around rochester it seems to me that there are less hunting 3A than previous years...

i would agree. i hunt 3B in way SE, but in Roch area, didn't see near as many hunters out first weekend. I actually found a couple spots to safely hunt some birds.

      Seems to be flooding out.  I have pulled the plug after trying to restart and its wet, so yes flooding out.

      After it dies pull the spark plug. Is it wet or is it dry.

      Anyone fishing this lake? How is the ice and bite?
    • freeman82
      has anyone been out to swan lake thinking of going this weekend. never been to this lake but have heard good things. 
    • oilandwater
      Only ice is in McQuade harbor and Knife River, and not much at that.  Cohos are biting really well on some days for guys fishing off the Two Harbors break wall. Pretty miserable conditions in which to fish, though....    South shore has good ice around Washburn, and a few cohos mixed in with good catches of Browns, spoke, and whitefish. Cohos on MN side have averaged 13-14" this winter.

      I have been using a Strikemaster Lithium Lazer 50v electric auger the last couple years. Very happy with it, but I'm limited to about 70-100 feet of ice drilled per charge, depending on temp/hardness of ice. That's more than enough for most bluegill trips, but it's lacking when the ice gets thick and I'm trying to find walleyes on big water during full-day trips. I find myself not drilling as many holes as I would like in an attempt to ration the charge. I just picked up an Eskimo P1 Rocket 8" propane auger. My buddy has the 10" and it's the best auger I've ever used. If anyone wants to really aerate a lake, the Rocket fits the bill. I'll use this along with the Strikemaster electric to meet all of my drilling needs. I haven't used the Rocket yet. It's in the mail. I'm excited at it's light weight in particular. 26 pounds.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.
