Gissert has first hand details.

Both bull tags were filled last week. Nice bulls too.

What a rush thats got to be.

I was contacted by one of the tag winners prior to the season, and shared with him what I knew. He and his partner shot a great looking 6 x 6 opening morning. Right after they got their bull, a massive 6 x 7 came into them, stopping at 20 yards and bugled. Great stuff!

The other tag holder also connected opening morning.

What a difference a year makes. Last year, the elk were rutting 2-3 miles farther east, outside the hunt zone.

Congratulations to these guys, and to the DNR and RMEF for working to keep this herd going and growing. Better yet, there is a MUCH larger herd cooking up in Roseau and Kittson counties that trades back and forth into Canada. With all the habitat work that has been done, they are really starting to hang on the Minnesota side.

Good luck to those holding the cow tags as well.

Wow, congrats to those guys.

It is a wonderful thing to have elk in MN and the opportunity to get to hunt them. Kudos to those involved in making it happen.

I am in the landowner section so i think i might apply next year. I have been thinking about it the last couple of years. I also have friends that keep track of the elk most of the year so I have a decent idea of were they are. I also get to see them once in a while throughout the year.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
