Deer are flocking in!!

3 posts in this topic

Yesterday morning I did my normal weekend routine of grabbing a cup of coffee and watching and counting the deer as they leave my five acre corn plot, yesterdays count was 28 deer!!! Four of them were bucks - a spike, two small eight points, and one real nice eight point - out beyond the ears!!! Hopefully he'll survive the cars and coyotes!! And they nicely paraded by at 150 yards for good spotting scope viewing. Also counted 12 pheasants in one plot and 26 in another plot.

This is the time of the year that really makes the time and $$$ spent on food plots worth it!!! Walked thru the corn later on Sunday and theres quite a bit left, hopefully it will last thru Feb and the worst of the cold weather.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
