Later and post rut questions

2 posts in this topic

I hunt in Wisconsin, this year the opener starts Nov 17th. Will the bucks still be in rut at all? If so what would you do to lure them in? Grunt, bleet, rattle, scent? Or just sit there and see what comes along. I hunt in the woods, not over looking any crops or openings.

There are alot of does in the area if that means anything? And if they arent in rut, what would you do to get them to come to you this time of year?

Rattling will sometimes still work during Mn 3B season (which coincides with Sconni opener). I haven't had a lot of success using grunts or bleats but know of two decent bucks brought in last year using a rattle bag. You should catch the tail end of the rut on 17th. Thanksgiving week is very early this year. Everything seems to be moved up a week.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
