So what are the early reports for your guys camps. I hope better than ours pretty slow not that many deer moving. I think that the full moon had them moving alot more a night than usual. We so quite a few does as a party but didn't connect. Well I will be back up thurs and hopefully I can get mine in MN so that I can head into ND and get mine out there. Good luck to all of you that are still hunting and congrats to the ones that got the big one.

Saw a ton of deer moving, all day long. Total of 20-25 deer seen by myself from several different stands throughout the day. Could have shot shot a few does but held off. Good thing, I got a nice 12 point 30 minutes before dark. Woohoo!!!! He's getting caped right now and will go to the taxidermist.

Nice do you got any pitures to share of that monster. I need to be reminded every now and then that it is possible for a deer to grow a nice rack. Wish I could connect up with one like that.

We had our 5 deer for 3 hunters by 8:00am Sunday. Hunting near Brainerd, we saw more deer than we ever have in that area. We got a big 8 pointer Saturday and the rest were does.

We got three does for 3 people. Held out for bucks after that but never saw one. But its all good, plenty of meat for us smile.gif To bad I found out Von Hansons was doing mixed meat only, after I had already droped them off. I hope you all cleaned and hung your deer well!! smile.gif

I heard you had so many deer your car couldn't haul them all.

Any word yet?

7 bucks, 1 doe for 12 guys as of noon on Sunday. Smallest buck was 5 pt, the rest were all 8+ - biggest 11 pt. Had to head home Sunday, but Monday the meat pole added another 11 pt and a monster 8 pt that out-did the rest of 'em I from what I'm told. Still waiting to see pics from the cousins.

We passed on a lot of smaller bucks to let 'em grow. "Whitetail Catch & Release" I guess you could call it? Catch 'em in the scope and let 'em go... smile.gif

Are you guys with these nice bucks hunting on private land, or it just that good where you are? I was just wondering because I have hunted some public land near Mora for 4 yrs. now and have only seen 1 spike buck. Normally I see at least a few does though but nothing like you guys are describing. I am not new to the sport either and I put in time scouting and checking stands and put in 10-12hrs a day in the woods, but I have only seen 1 doe that I took last Wed. Not that I'm complaining about only 1 deer, just wondering if I should try a different area, maybe further up north?

We're 6 for 6 so far with 4 bucks( A big 8, 6 and a couple of 4 pointers) and 2 does(management tags). We still have this weekend to get a few more.

I broke in my muzzleloader this weekend with a 4 point buck. Passed on several does and a few bucks that didn't offer a decent shot last weekend.

The this weather really put the damper on deer movement this weekend. Not much moving around. Hopefully things are better for next weekend. I've still have two kids who haven't filled a tag yet this year.

Wow that is a nice buck you got there viddles456. What part of the state are you hunting in?? Well things came together for my dad and I this last Fri. I got a 9point + 3 Sticker horns = 12 Points on Fri Morning and my dad got a pretty good Doe about 10 minutes after I got mine. Lucked out that is for sure only buck I saw in our camp but I'll take it. Start out in ND this past weekend the group I am hunting with has 3 does and 1 small buck so far. We have 3 buck tags left so probably going to get a little tough to fill out there but we'll keep on walking.

Great shots! Those are some nice bucks. I went this last weekend. I shot the only buck out of my party of seven, an 8-pointer with a narrow rack was hunkered down in a ditchline on my Dad's farm. Made the weekend. The rest of my pack is out hunting today while I'm handcuffed to this desk at work. At least I wasn't skunked.

I'll try to send a pice of the twelve pointer I got Sat. Incredible mass with 2 1/2 inch diameter bases.

      I remember that video, pretty darn cool!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!
    • slammer
      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?
    • EyeChsr
      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

        Nice fish , great pics ,, what times of the day were best for you ?
