Saw a NICE 10 point Monday morning!!

Recommended Posts


My normal early morning routine this time of year is to start the coffee and then watch and count deer as they're leaving my food plots. Counted 6 does leaving one plot and then saw three more deer leaving the other plot, my wife picked them with the spotting scope and thought one was a buck. I set up the scope to catch them when they crossed an opening and the leader of the three was a nice ten point, long tines, wider than the ears!!! Not real heavy massed but a nice tall tined buck!!! Hope he survives the cars and coyotes until next year!!!! Then it will be interesting to see what he develops into!!!

Interestingly enough he was traveling with another small buck. The third deer was a doe or could have been a buck that had shed already. Also interesting that he didn't follow the path of the does, he went by some tree lines and into some woods, more cover - thats probably why hes has survived this long.

2 nights ago I had an exceptional 9 pt in the backyard.

I have seen hime one time in person as he corssed the road near our house a month ago. I have him on trail cam a couple times.

He was with a smaller 8pt and a doe as well.

Pretty impressive on the body size when standing next to a couple other deer. He is gonna be an absolute brute of a deer if he makes it to next year.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
