Analyze my hunting land

Recommended Posts


Take a look at this arial pic and let me know where you would hang a stand. The yellow circles represent deer stands or ground blinds. The magenta dots are well used deer trails and the red dots are rub lines. The blue circled areas are swamps that are pretty much dry. This is a 160 acre farm planted with corn this year. The wind is usually from the NW or North. hunting111.jpg

Looks really promising. except there is a lot of land on the west edge you aren't covering. But a picture is just a picture and no offense 160 A is a good chunk of land but without good management practices (shooting does and passing on little bucks) it is not anything special. If I were you I would work the ground a little and make some food plots maybe 1/2 A size and spread them around to get the deer to travel and put up some trail cams in the future and see what you have and before going out hunting kinda have a feel for what you have wondering around and gave a game plan for what you plan and want to have happen on the land. How many hunters hunt this chunk of land? How good are your neighbors do they shoot anything that is brown? Are those fields grass or are there crops in them? Just curious but the tree stands are all right next to a big opening do you strictly rifle hunt? Are these stands perminant? Not saying open spots are bad but sometimes when it is windier a portable treestand that is up high in the woods isn't that bad of a spot to be esecially whent it is cold out. But all in all don't look bad and like every chunk of land it has potential.

In the event none of the permanent stands are not productive consistently I would start near the intersection area of the main trail and the west end of the rubs between the two large swamps that are dry.If the swamps get wetter later on near the opener the area seems to be somewhat of a natural bottle neck zone that could be productive.Good luck

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??

      Was on Green Thursday , fished from 3:30 to 8:30. Caught 3 nice crappies and some small perch. Funny thing the crappies were caught between 4 and 5. Not a bite after dark,  they  ( or something) was there but would not bite on anything I put in front of them. Caught the 3 in deep water with a frostee and minnow. Good Luck Moose.  I may try Little Elk this afternoon

      The wing bolt on my auger sheared off yesterday. So I spent some time getting the bolt out. Then I was off looking for the strongest bolts I could find. The auger is good to go again. Seeing I have about 5000 holes drilled with it upgrading the bolts is worth it. There is a lot of ice this year and I am not having any issue powering through it with dcd985 and the clam plate. I am getting some of the ice chips out of the hole before busting through, but I did that with the lazer mag too.  I think I am going to hit green lake after dark for some crappies with my father in law.

      Mielkez, I thought that the area you are now targeting was supposed to get the most snow from the coming storm. Cliff

      That’s exactly what finding right now nothing shallow. 20 seems key.

      I'd concentrate on the buffalo/annandale area just northwest of the metro. There's a ton of good lakes. Clearwater, Pulaski, pleasant. The list is long.

      Alright guys. Change of plans. My group is concerned about lake travel. After consulting a snowfall map we've decided to stay south of the line that runs from basically Duluth to Lake Winnie area. Were coming from Wisconsin and don't know anything about MN lakes. Rather not do Mille Lacs. Looking for something a little smaller. Not asking for spots. Is there a lake within and hour or two to the north or east of the cities that fishes strong? Looking for panfish mostly with some walleye mixed in. Thanks.
