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.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
    • mrpike1973
      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
