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

I'll post the pics on monday when we all get home from the weekend hunt

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

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.
