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

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
