Where to go now?

6 posts in this topic

well I had my opening morning stand picked out, but after looking at the weather, it looks like I'll have to bust out the blind because of some rain coming in tomorrow (of course on opener), so where would you guys suggest I put it? I was thinking in a pine tree plantation, figuring they'll be trying to bed in there...

Find a trail coming from a food area and set it off a little bit and clip some branches and put it under a tree and cover with clipped tree branches.

I'd say find a spot under some big white oaks that will work for the wind conditions.

I would set it up between a food source and thier bedding area.I might stay by the beans and hay if its only a light drizzle.If its raining hard I would then get closer to the corn.

When putting up your blind make sure you cover it well or they will shy away.I would cut branches off a tree and put them all the way around and on top of the blind.It would hurt to spray a little scent control or cover spray on the blind also.

Good luck and tip a nice one over. smile.gif

Also,if it is raining real hard I might think of not hunting as you will have a hard time tracking a deer with no blood trail.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
