4 posts in this topic

I'm looking forward to hunt the late season although I have'nt had much luck just wondering if anyone has done well after all the hunting pressure from firearms. Im yet to see a buck in the late season just some does.

Standing corn is where I am headed about the middle of Dec. Have seen alot of deer at this time but not many trophy's. Good way to fill a bonus tag. Find the food and you will find deer.

I would agree with Bill, looking for deer after the rut will include the food sources. After these bucks have run the rut and not eaten much, they will need to eat alot of food to replace any fat they have lost from the rut to get through the winter.

Food,food,food.

No corn to hunt around here. I mainly focus on the thick stuff on the edge of clear cuts but I really could use some snow to find out where they are moving. I've found a couple of sheds that are 60 plus inches in the last couple of years around a couple clear cuts. I'm trying to focus on them and hope I can figure out where the big ones hide.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
