Help locating an old deer.

2 posts in this topic

This is a longshot, but here goes. Many years ago my grandpa shot a "real big buck" while hunting out of what he referred to as "McDonald's Camp" (It was a logging camp north of Geise,MN and east of Magrath, MN)

He said a young kid who had shot a young deer was admiring his deer, and stated how he wished he could get a buck like that. Grandpa traded deer with him. He use to say "I didn't want to chew on that deer all winter." When I would ask him for details, he didn't remember. He never cared. "you can't eat the horns" he would say.

I don't want the deer, I would just like to see a photo, and hear the story. If anyone has an grandfather,dad,uncle,etc. who may have hunted there years ago, I would love to talk to them.

I wish I had a year, or other info to go one, but this is all I have. Thank you to all who read this.

Wow!!! Even with the minimum info you have that's a pretty cool story...

Amazing how deer hunting has changed over the years... Your grand dad hunted probably because he enjoyed it and wanted the meat... the horns meant little to him... and some kid learned a lot about life that day!

Hope something turns up for you, and if it does, as Paul Harvey says "now for the rest of the story" let us in on it!

Good Luck!

Ken

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
