Extra Deer season

7 posts in this topic

Ok I know that this has been talked about for every year since it happened 10 or 12 years ago but the DNR guy told my dad that since the deer harvest was down 61% in our area they are going to open it up again mid december. What are the odds that will happen? I also think it is a stupid idea. First of all We did not see many people out hunting at ALL. Second the ones that did work for the deer got deer. I just think that in our area if we did not shoot alot of deer, oh well, I believe we can sustain more deer and I know the population is in check cause we are still in a lottery area! And in our area the deer are herded up at that time of year and say 10 guys find a good group and set it up right there could be a slaugher! I am sorry but to me this is just not a good idea!

What are there thoughts!

I doubt it will happen. Before all of the other seasons were lengthened, bow & ML, & there were a lot less late season hunters this was more feasable. I don't really think it is now. Would I personally care? No not really. I'll probably be hunting anyway, it's just a matter of which weapons I have to choose from.

I have to wonder if the deer populations are as high as the estimations say....

Or is it just that with more and more people that we are coming into more conflicts with deer? And the DNR is forcing their hand because of conflicts with cars and flower gardens.... smirk.gif

I think the DNR forgot to factor in Mr. Wile E. Coyote grin.gif

T.V. Boy I will agreee with you there! We shot 2 of the opening morning and the one I got was following a button buck and I thought oh no you don't! And he flew about 10 feet then I got mad at it cause it ruined my hunting spot for the morning.!

I'm not a gambler, but I'd put a lot of money on no extra season...

Talk of this seems to pop up every year, but I doubt it'll happen. Probably just rumours.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.
