I'll let Jesse fill in the details as i'll be headed outa town on a week long deer hunt just after he heads back home.Any luck he should have something in the back of his truck he did'nt bring along

yea Dave and Jesse can hold it..lol

Harvey - - - I'll tell Jesse how much 1 cost so he better pass on all the big bucks if any and shoot a spike/forky they taste better.Student/cost for a mount plus the cost at the meat market ='s 1 weekend of no party for the school boy

Sure hope he's not bringing mouth wash (Crown Royal)along.Scare the deer away with that crap for weeks i'll have to move all my stands weeds will all be dead so i wont have any cover to hide in

Wow a guy that knows what the deer actual lbs are. ooo.gif

I'm going to set him up on a nice 8 pointer in the morning 135 class give or take a couple inches but he's a nice 1 to take outa the area.Looks like a 5 1/2 year old and were try'n to thin those eights out so the 10 point and bigger shows up down the road.We have way way to many 8's be nice to see more points on these big guys.

I told Jesse he can shoot what ever he wants but it sounds like he WILL hold out for a good 1 and shoot a doe to take home for meat.If the weather holds like it has been the past couple days i think he'll fill the buck tag in the morning and we'll work on a doe or 2 inanother area that need to be thinned out

Not me because thats still a nice doe.

Holy crap Jesse was 3 hours early today.

We scouted a couple areas saw several does/fawns.I took him back to a corn ladder stand and on the way down there Jesse says man i need to get my camera out to take pics of these big tracks.I looked over in his row of corn and yes indeed it was a dandy of a track.A lil ways down the corn field we ended up back on the fence line and guess who runs around the corner down the waterway where the corn ladder stand was set.Yup mr 8 pointer and he was hauilin azz.

So we went back to the truck and went about 200 yards over to a little woods where i have a stand set up.New scrape 10 yards from the stand and it was Freshly opened within the hour.Was a no brainer since it had just down poored an hour before that and all signs were covered up prior to that.

So Jesse wants to sit that stand in the morning but i think he visits that location in the evenings.I hope he proves me wrong

We got out the spot light to see what was going on after dark.We saw a few small 110-125 class bucks then we came across 4 bucks comming out of a small woods about 150 yards off the road.As we were watching them the last buck to exit the woods came out on a dead run head on into another buck.It was funny as hell.The buck that was already outr in the field just put his head down while the 1 on a dead run about went head over heals when they clashed antlers.He fled the area he must of figured he was about to get his azz kicked again by the buck twice his size.Was a good chuckle anyways

sat in the stand near the scrape this morning, i figured it would be a good place to start anyway. Well come 7:15 i had a little basket rack 8 pointer walk right by the stand and he just stopped right next to me. He was concentrating on something further ahead of him. Then all a sudden he just darts in the the woods. must have saw another decent buck ahead but he never showed himself.

At 9 we went out scouting around and walked down this woodline adjacent to a couple swams that were surrounded by corn. We found some scrapes along the cornline and as we eased our way to the woodline we came up upon some nice big rubs one some trees the diameter of a softball. Seem to be some pretty big and WIDE buck in this location. Followed his path and came upon a waterhole and a bunch of Fresh rubs and a scrape that he had just made this morning. Looks like he tares his way through there in the morning so thats where were goin to set up.

as for tonight back to that other scrape line.

I'll update this post

Jesse passed up 2 small buck and 10 does/fawns thursady evening right under the stand

Friday morning was prettyyyyy slowwwwwwwwwww but i got to see a dandy while scounting

Set Jesse up on that buck yesterday afternoon.He had him come in about 50-60 yards away but would close the gap by dark

This morning was slow as well.Picked Jesse up and we went to a small woods to try some calling.Started out with about 20-30 grunts waited about 1 minute then clashed a 150" set of sheds together for about 3 minutes none stop hard hitting

I look over to my right and 2 small 6 pointers about on top of me while Jesse was 40 yards to my left.I just kept on smasshing antlers.I could hear a couple infront of me but i was dug in a wood pile

Then i hear Jesse do a mouth grunt and i hear a whip from the bow then i hear a smack from the broadhead.I just kept on smasshin antlers.Look out in the field behind us 50 yards and about 150-160 incher looking my direction i just kept on smashin antlers.He headed back in the woods i stopped waited for a couple minutes then walked over to Jesse

His eyes the size of golf balls mouth wide open and he says did you see that shiot.What a monster he holds his arms out.Says that buck came running in so fast he past me went 10 feet infront of you stopped turned around and ran right back to me i grunted and he stoped.I wacked him

So were going trailin shortly

well its a lost cause. That buck came in hot and heavy and was ready to do some damage. When he came back around to me i grunted and stopped him and took a shot but my arrow deflected off a tree branch and stuck him right in the neck. Left him alone for a couple hours and went back followed the trail for around 1 mile and it stopped at the edge of a corn field. looked all afternoon but came up with nothing. He was a dandy alright guessing around 160" or so, really wide with good mass, long beams and tall tines.

This aint no joke guys theres a lot of monsters around just gotta spot'em and track'em down thats all. Just some rattlin brought 5 bucks in 2 definite shooters and 1 unknown he wouldn't come in just sat back a ways stoping and wheezin and 2 6's. what a rush havin them come in within 2 min of rattling. an unfortunate end for an awsome day but i gotta say it was a blast.

We'll give it 1 more try in the morning and see if Jesse can downn a monster i saw the other day.Were headed out with a corn ladder stand along a waterway about 5 am.I'll lay back in the corn with my call/Antlers just at day break i'll start war world 3 in the corn field to draw this slob out if he's around the area.My luck he'll attack me and Jesse will wonder what all the noise is back there

When i was trackin this buck i came across more scrapes and rubs.All freshly opened and wet so that tells me the bucks are checking them in the am as of now.How early is the next ? but i came along a solid line of rubs/scrapes you could tell at 4 pm those wet spots had been made in the last couple hours.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.
    • DLD24
      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.
    • DLD24
      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.
    • Garmandu
      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
