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?

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.

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.
