6 posts in this topic

Down the road from me when you turn to go on hwy 1 from 83 heading to fergus i saw 3 dead to me looked like does laying in the ditch all in the same spot with from what i could get after all the rain and stuff looked like the front quaters had been taken out?..what the heck gotta be poachers if so they were stupid ones to dump them rite there on a main road?what do you guys think because theres no deer seasons open that i know of and who would just trow them in a ditch like that?...whats the chances of a car hitting 3 deer at the same time unlikely i would think? confused.gif

Call TIP if you believe there is some illegal crap going on.

Don't wait for opinions on what happened. Time is tickin'.

Did you inspect them closely to believe they may have been shot? I have seen 2 deer in the exact spot from getting hit, but never 3 in one spot. But, I wouldn't be all that surprised either. Just last week on my way to the cabin in Battle Lake, I had a doe and a pair of fawns cross in front of me, and they were all close enough together that if my timing was a bit earlier, I coulda had lots of fresh loins at the expense of my truck.

It wouldn't suprise me if it was poachers. Last year me and Kowalleyeski were trying to shoot squirrels on a WPA and there was a buck that was shot and the horns cut off. This really makes a guy mad.

Yeah I'm not saying that it is for sure poachers, just that it does happen and there is a chance that it is poachers.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
