Well we got the big 8 pointer about 20 minutes after sunrise.6-8 yard shot in thee ole breadbasket.He went about 25 yards and stoped stood in the beans for atleast 5 minutes then just fell over dead.Dont think there was a drop of blood left in him

This bucks a monster.No doubt that he will be the number 1 8 pointer period

He has a spread of 26 1/2"

G2's are over 17"

beams are close to the 30" mark on both sides

So far we shot 2 does and this buck.We set up several more stands for the big boy now that the winds are turning NW we have a great chance in the next 2 days to take him as well.This bucks back on summer track just like the 8 pointer did 2 days ago.He came back to the bean field that he left for greener pastures.We had a couple stands in place i put up another 1 the other day and he was shot off that stand 1st outing

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

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      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.
