Just got done unpacking the hunting gear.I'll work on the pics and no video of this deer.This stand was not set up for the video camera.Everyone else was looking for the other 2 big guys since they were not convinced he was back in the area

Thursday afternoon we had 3 guys. we took two 1 1/2 year old doe for camp meat and passed up 12 bucks.We also passed up a couple big doe that had spoted fawns

Friday we had 4 guys.In all we passed up 27 bucks none over 115 class and about30-35 fawns and does.9 of those buck are in 1 group and went by 2 of us so in all we passed up 18 different bucks and took out the big 8

Sat i was in a stand i put up on friday in hopes to see the big boy.He never showed during daylight hours but i saw a monster in the dark.All i could see was a wide rack about 50% white what looked to be small tines but not 100% sure.I passed up the same buck everyone else did he was about 110" and a couple fawns kinda a slow day

This morning we had south winds so we hit another area. not much going on there so we moved about 6 miles for this evenings hunt.I sat in a small farm yard surounded by corn in a waterway.Saw several bucks but none had more then 6 points and 2 fawns.The other guy who stayed had a pick of 2 stands where we been seeing some big tracks.He picked 1 out and i said geez i would probly sit the other 1 being the farmers picking the bean field next to the woods on the other side they should come out on this side.Well he did'nt want to sit there and i was going to sit it but realy wanted to check out the old farm yard.He said he saw a 26"-30" wide rack buck that came out next to that other stand..GRRRRRRRR

He decided to stay and hunt that stand for the morning hunt.To late man you had your chance i said.That buck will probly not be there in the AM and wont be back in this field until well after dark.I hope he proves me wrong thats why i said what i did so he will stay and hunt monday afternoon.I asume thats the deer leavin the big tracks.Guess we'll have to do some scouting if he's that wide

While i'm working on pics and headed to the taxidermy shop in the morning to get a green score (Gross) lets have a contest to see who can score this buck.I'll post this in the hunting forum as well.I'll post a copy of the green score the taxidermist gives us.This will not be officail since you have to wait the dry time to get it recorded into the book

Winner gets a choice of any season he or she chooses to hunt 2 days all you need is your hunting gear and food money i'll cover the rest.This can be this year or next you make the call if you win.I'm sure many have plans for the upcomming season already

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.

      A 6-mile section of the Glacial Lakes State Trail will be closed as contractors work on improvements, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
      Trail users will see intermittent closures until June 1 as workers remove trees and brush that are near the work area. The segment between the trailhead in Willmar and Spicer’s south side at Progress Way is scheduled to close on June 5 as workers begin mill and overlay work on the trail’s westernmost 6 miles. The project is scheduled for completion by Aug. 25. In addition to a smooth, new surface, trail users will enjoy new benches, improved accessibility, and paved crossings at gravel road intersections. The current 8-foot trail width will also be expanded to 10 feet. “We think our trail users will be pleased with these improvements,” said Jeremy Losinski, area supervisor for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “The wider trail will provide easier passage. Plus, the smoother pavement replaces the trail’s oldest paved surface, which is now more than 20 years old. It had deteriorated and reached the end of its life cycle.” Contractors will also be replacing several culverts along the trail to provide better drainage. “While we want to make sure everyone is safe, there will still be opportunities to use parts of the trail during construction,” Losinski said. “The construction will start in Willmar and work its way toward Spicer, so small portions of the trail will have limited use. Our trail users may not be able to go all the way from Willmar to Spicer during times in the construction process. We just ask that our trail users obey the closure signs and avoid construction equipment.” Prinsburg-based Duininck, Inc., is the contractor. Construction updates will be posted on the DNR’s Glacial Lakes State Trail Web page. The 22-mile western segment of the Glacial Lakes State Trail links Willmar with the Kandiyohi/Stearns County line. The 5-mile eastern segment connects Roscoe to Cold Spring. Built on the former Burlington Northern railroad grade, a total of 27 miles is paved as the trail cuts across the border between Minnesota’s western tallgrass prairie and eastern deciduous forest.

      The four I use are pretty shallow for at least the first hundred yards, but I've never damaged my boat or prop. Just gotta take it slow and trim the motor up.    I use Isle, Cove, Garrison, and the one near the casino, Shaboshkung or whatever.

      great fish!

      Greetings fishermen and women! Its great being back in the swing of things and better yet in the boat! Both the MN and Ontario season is now open and fishing has been great! Staffers here at Flag Island Resort have been busy getting ready for the upcoming summer months with some deep cleaning, window washing, grounds work and remodeling!   On the Minnesota side anglers have been catching nice saugers, walleyes and perch. Soon the crappies should be finding their way into the shallows around Angle Inlet and other small creeks and the walleyes have spawned out over the past couple of weeks. With the warmer temps that started out last week anglers were finding fish in shallower water between 5-17 feet now, with the cooler temps, rain and winds most of the fish have been pushed deeper into the 16-26 foot range. Points and reefs close to large land masses adjacent to sand and rubble have been hot locations. Anglers have found fish near Soldier’s, Little Oak, Oak Island and NW Point. The water surface temp has been in that 50-55 degree range. Right now it seems like everything is working from ¼ to 3/8 jigs to slow trolling with raps in the shallows as well as trolling spinners keeping on the move at 0.9 mph.   Over in Ontario, the walleye, sauger, crappie, perch and pike have been hungry. Perch and crappie should be spawning soon. Crappies are being caught around the 20 foot mark . Sandy bays and points have been best for the walleye and crappie bite while the perch are still caught in the rocks. Many pike have been caught in areas with current. There have been reports of a lot of smallmouth mixed in with the walleyes.  Jigging with a ¼-3/8 ounce jig has been the ticket and the water temp has been around 49-52 degrees.   We hope to see you up here soon! Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011
