People must be searching that area for sheds. Though it looks as if most of them are still wearing their horns

I dont see the 2 biggest deer in that photo. The photo isnt the best but I think I would be able to pick them out. I hope someone didnt poach them babies. I have never found a shed down there. Not that I go every day or anything close to that. I think the RR workers beat us to it all the time.

Some nice deer running in that crew.

It's a difficult spot to get into for shed hunting. I know of 2 guys that made it in there a few weeks back and they didn't find anything. They talked to one of the railroad guys and he said they pick them up when they find them.

I have a bigger copy if you want Steve, I shrunk it for internet purposes.

There were a couple monsters down there You'd see every day along the river just as you were coming onto the bridge coming from the west side of 35. Can you imagine if they opened that area to the city hunt!? grin.gif

Great pic Nate!

Nice Pic, It seems late for so many to still have horns.

I was down that way in Nov working and watched a heavy 8 trot into a big group of does and moved the one that smelled good out of the heard like a sheep dog. He had her cornered by some cars and would not let her go. Along came these two basket 8 and they would try and try to get close but the big guy would just lower his head and chase them away. It is kinda funny in the morning heading home from work it look like a cattle feed lot out there cause they are all lined up by the rail cars.

If you walk the woods right under the High Bridge near Birch street you will probably find sheds there in that small woods. Last fall I got a picture of a 14 pointer and 2 huge 12's all standing together real close to where the current picture was taken.

I havent worked over in Duluth too much lately so I cant say that I have seen that buck recently, but I am sure that is the one that was 14 last fall.

My office is on Garfield and I see them quite abit. And Northlander I am pretty sure I saw those big boys you are talking about sparring awhile back. It was quite a site and I wish I had a good camera with me to capture it. And also I have seen a beauty under the interstate just off Michigan St. He was literally laying down right under the bridge. It was at least a 12 pointer but it was a very unique rack. Me and the guy I work with drove by 3 times to check him out. Another time I wish I had a good camera in my work truck.

Thats probably the big one I have seen. Very unique rack. One day last month I saw that whole crew out on the ice in front of the [PoorWordUsage] plant. I wish my camera had more zoom. That would have been a great pic.

Here is a few more pictures from deer central. Out of curiosity, when was the picture in the 1st post taken? These were taken just under 3 weeks ago. No sign of any buck there that is any where close to a 14. The biggest one is a 10, but wouldnt score well because of the common base on his right antler. There is a dandy 8 in there though.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
