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..///..

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
