      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Delk?

Recommended Posts

woody1975

Did anyone catch the Channel 5 news story about a guy in southern Minn. shooting what they are calling a Delk - Half deer and Half Elk. The picture wasn't that great, but they are sending it to the U for testing.

Didn't see the story, but it's all the talk around here. One guy got to see it said it was all white with extra long hair and tall spikes. Weird. Oh, and yes it is an escapee from a ranch.

That's the talk anyways.

Found it, here is the link: (kstp. com)

This is not a whitetail-elk hybrid. It's a red deer-elk hybrid. Red deer, native to Europe, and elk are closely enough related, same genus Cervus , that they can be hybridized.

If it's a Delk, it was likely released to feed the Sasquatch's that have been previously released (check another post). I only saw one picture and it looks like either a red or sika deer. Probably a red deer. Either way, I can bet my future lottery winnings it's not a delk!

I have seen the picture and heard the story, or anyhow the story of a friend of a fiend. The guy saw the deer deer/Elk/Red Deer whatever two days before season go into his dads corn field. They did not pick the field and called the DNR to ask if it was ok to shoot the "thing". He got the go ahead and on opening day of second season he got it. I am telling you it looks like the devils child!! Pure white, long wavy hair, and long I mean long spikes!! Some pegin churck is missing their god!!

The "Delk" was shot by a good friend of mine. I saw it on Saturday night. Quite a site!! The DNR told him it was a deer/elk cross originally from a game farm near New Richland but it and another one escaped from a farm near Delavan. The DNR CO picked it up on Sunday but he's hoping to get the head back to mount it. There is also a link on the KAAL TV 6 site.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
