This will be my first full bow-season living in Duluth after missing almost all of last year getting ready to move. The scouting is done, one stand is up and a few other spots in the Duluth city hunting area are marked on the GPS. Hopefully a few deer are left by next Monday afternoon which is going to be my first time on stand for the season. Here's hoping everyone has a safe and successful hunt this weekend. SHOOT THOSE DOES!! Can't wait for the first meal of fresh venison. 'sgonna be GOOD!

I also will be ready for the big hunt. The stand is up and and there is a monster that i have seen twice. So hopefully a doe in the A.M, and the big boy in the evening. Good luck to everyone, and be safe.

Nice to see you guys ready, Tom

I did not see your name on the land owner sheet today, so you should get that in, as fas as your problem, on Tuesday

The ABA, City police,DNR and CO's will meet to discuss proper protocall, with so many invloved agencies we need to have a detailed plan.

So my guess is you have a tresspasser this may be handled by the land owner calling city police, probabaly the same for the feed and if there is someone sitting in the stand we may have the CO's look into it.

So keep in touch we'll get it fixed before the hunt!

Good to see others from the site geared up for the city hunt. I'm so ready for this season. I've got all sorts of spots to relocate if I need to but for now I have all the does I can stand coming right through my lanes and there's so many bucks it's unreal. A few in the 130's to 150's that have caught my eye but I know there's bigger...way bigger. I've captured many pictures of people on my trail cam along with the deer and i'm thankful none of them came back with a saw or bolt cutters to steal it. Guys, I definately have the fever.

I just sold my fish house to a guy who got a 230# eight pointer on Sun. Saw the deer on the news, it looked like a long horned steer.

Someone got a monster eh? Where might I find pics of this deer? We've got a few deer but this weather is really hurting the deer movement I think. The cold is nice but the rain and wind can head out soon. If anyone starts getting some bucks maybe post the pics here?

As usual if Im close to you Im not catching fish so I will stay far far away! grin.gif

And yes there is a very good chance Ill have my orange hat on. I may have to retire that thing by spring. Way to many people know to look for the Lund with a big ugly guy with a orange hat on. crazy.gif

I just hope those eyes are where I left them last time out. Im sure this weather will have me searching for a bit though.

I just developed some trail cam pics and on the 12 pictures that were developed there were 6 different P&Y bucks. The two shooters arean 8 that probably goes 150+ and a 10 that is also in the 150's. The 8 has it all though...mass, main beams, height, spread...everything is huge. 150 is being conservative. I've got two deer tagged so far and we've gone 16 for 6 guys. It's time for the bucks...too bad every pic is at night. Tom, sorry I couldn't get to the phone the other night. It was in my truck as we were cutting up meat. Hope things worked out for ya and fishing was good as well.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
    • Sushilicious
      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.

      How has the bite been this weekend?  Not able to fish this weekend due to graduations.  Shiners still working?
    • eyeguy 54
        I bet Andy caught that and let you pose with it. get that anchor on so you dont go over the dam ! !  lol  stop by if you wanna see a cheap way to rig a trolley.

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.
