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

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
