I'm having one heck of a time this year with the deer. I have access to 4 great woods near Chaska, Carver and Cologne, but am not seeing the deer this year. two of these woods are in the new 601. I put over 30 hrs in the stand the week befor the start of gun season and saw 3 deer. Anyone else having tough luck or have I upset the deer gods??? confused.gif

I have 2 spots in roughly the same areas and the problem I am having is people are feeding the deer on neighboring properties which has completely screwed up their patterns. It really is noticable ounce the browse has started to diminish and the crops go down. The deer sightings really taper off to nill once gun season hits and it gets frustrating. They do start to come back during muzzleloader season though.

I feel your pain

This is all private land that I am on.

Today a new problem, got on stand by 6:15 and at 6:45 a truck comes and drives down the neighbors field line, very slowly, he must have driven a quarter mile and turns around and goes right back. Now he can see me clear as day in my orange clothes. Clearly he trying to deter the my hunting efforts. If its not one thing it seems to be another. mad.gif

Used to see a major increase in site population when I worked for Marsh lake gun club south of Victoria. Made for excellent hunting knowing all the local feed fields are down and most of the "open hunting" was trampled/ The only local competition was the tree huggers feeding all winter..///..

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
