There are lots of spots especially if you have a bow. I stuck a buck in my first two hours of hunting this year. The rut is on, get out there.

Went out pheasant hunting today and jumped a nice at least 9 pointer. One minute later a spike and a doe. I just have to get one so I can get it out of my head. At least I shot a nice rooster, with a great point from my Britt. Okay so If anyone needs some deer gone I am the guy! tlmvikings@mchsi.com

I will be honest with you. The 601 area has lots of deer but it will be difficult to find someone to let you hunt, especially with a firearm. Many cities will not let you hunt with firearm, and others will require you to obtain a city hunting/discharge of firearms permit. I just happen to know a few people who have land to let me hunt and trust me, the deer are there. I have killed 4 this year so far, (all by archery), 3 mature does and one decent 8-pt, the last weekend of october. Since then I have had to pass up two different mature bucks, bigger than the eight I killed. One was a 125-130 class 9-pt and the other was a 140 class 10 pt I had at less than 10 yrds from the base of my tree. As I said the deer are there, you just have to do the footwork of learning each cities requirements and then finding a place to go. My best advice is to put in some work at city halls and simply do a little checking on the internet to find who owns land and where. After that, do some simple scouting just driving around in your truck, looking for even small woodlots you can see from the road. These small spots can produce some great deer, even though it may be strange hunting within eyesight of roads and possibly even other houses. Though I wont get specific the south, southeast metro have hidden spots but as I said, you just need to put in the time and work to find them. Good luck!

pintail,

What areas are you hunting? I hunt just outside of chaska and carver and am having a terrible time this year. Between the constant deer drives and the folks in town w/their feeders, the deer are not moving during daylight hours.

Louisville has good deer. I've hunted there many times. Parking gets pretty full on evenings and weekends. I usually try to hunt the weeday mornings. He's still roaming somewhere.

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      I am ready to fish now that turkey season is done for my nephew

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

        Ya, I Was corrected already. Sorry.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.
