DEER AREA 167-Wood man, some ?????.

6 posts in this topic

Woodman or anyone for that matter. But I know Woodman hunts in 167--- has anyone been doing any scouting to the east of 46, between Island and Shallow Pond lakes? We have hunted for years back in the Wagner Lake area and the past few years have been less and less productive. I have seen more evidence of wolves over the years and a gentleman who has a cabin in the area has seen very little deer or sign this past summer. He had heard of predator problems in that area, any confirmation or thoughts on that. Will not get up to scout ourselves until out annual Winnie fishing and grousing expedition in late Sept. or early Oct. and sometimes Mich Light gets in the way. Wonder if we need to look at plan B. Thanks.

I hunt in 168 and have been seeing a lot of the same things. And to top it off the DNR wants to reduce the amount of deer in these zones, cuz they feel there are too many. Talked to one guy last year who lives across the dirt road from where i hunt. he showed me the marks on his dog where he had to shoot at a wolf that was attacking his dog, and accidentally peppered his own dog a little.

Still waited to hear from Woodman. We may move to another area if that is what we find when we get up there.

Huskie,

I hunt in 167 and there are a lot of timber wolves around the area you are talking about. It also has quite a few deer around there too. I would give it a shot if I were you.

Good luck,

Kupcho

Kupcho: I think we will try 167 again this year. We will scout it out at least one time and hope to see a little deer sign. Where abouts in 167 do you hunt, without giving away your hot spot? Without a lottery in 167 I wonder if the number of hunters will increase, that could be good or bad!!!!

Huskie- Sorry about the delay in posts. I have been busy driving kids to events every night after school and then bed time stuff and then I am tired.

I was planning to head up to Northome this weekend and scout a little, but now our plans have changed for this weekend due to and electrician comming over to hook up our new hot tub.

When I get up there I will post results, and I am evan going to be putting out my trail cam to see what is in the areas of our stands this year. Last year we had lots of wolves, and only managed to shoot 2 deer out of 8 licenses.

Dad has been busy skinning bear at the neighbors house all season, so he has not had a chance to scout either. Evan though he has my 4-wheeler to hit the woods with.

Send me your email address and I will send you one when I get back from up there.

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
