corn fields??

3 posts in this topic

so whos all hunting by or right off corn fields on here?? im hunting on the fields and they chopped it 2 weeks ago. is anybody else seeing all the deer on these fields as much as i am? plus it dosnt really matter when i hunt mornings or nights i still see a good amount of deer. i hunted this morning in a grass field and i know the deer bed down there but i didnt see any deer for 4 hrs. i should of hunted the corn field this morning. the only problem i have with the corn fields is that the deer come from all around this little field. you never know what side to hunt on because of it. oh well- its deer hunting i guess.

ok what i ment was......i have woods all around this cornfield and the deer are coming from all of the sides of the woods into the field. but the other morning i was hunting in this grass field thats in the middle of the woods and i know the deer are bedding down. ive seen monster bucks running into the area but i still dont see any sign of them, i dought that i will. ive hunted the grass field 5 different times and seen no deer. but the corn field produces deer but im always on the wrong side of where they come from. another thing is that i have everything the deer needs with in 5 blocks of where this place is, food, water ( fresh river) and a bedding area. this is hunting and its a challenge and thats what i love about it. thanks for the reply.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.
