I was amazed at how many close guesses there actualy was.I guessed this buck at 184-185 gross and 169-171 net after dry time.I'm going to hit the dry time period score but was a lil off on the gross when me and Extreme were talking about the pic.Extreme was actualy right on the money when he guessed this buck i about put a load in my shorts when i scored the buck i was just a 1/2" off doing it myself free hand and counting it in my head as i ran the tape.So good guess Extreme

I talk to lots of guys who say they shot a 150 class 220lb deer.1st of all it takes a nice deer to hit 150 then to hit 220lb down in this area is kinda far fetched when i hear it everyday during the gun season.Then when i see the deer it's a 120" 175lb deer.Feels like 300lbs when your draggin the deer but it takes a darn big deer to hit 200lbs down here

So when i was looking at the scores i figured i was going to see all kinds of scores well over 200".I have seen a couple over 200 on the hoof in the wild.Thats an elk standing out in the field at 200" or it looks like a tree.This deer had the main frame to be much more then what he is just think if he was a 12 or more like the milo hansen buck.He would rate right up there next to it

So i wanna thank everyone who took a good solid guess and say wow i am impressed that people actualy know how to score a buck

I'm working on getting pics up as soon as i can.I'm probly more excited to put them up then anyone wanting to look at it.

For some reason Shikellamy dont contact me or backs out i'll take the 2 people who 1st guessed 181 4/8 & 181 6/8

I posted at the end of the other thread. You definitely have mail!!!!!!!

I just want to say thanks. I don't think I've ever won any sort of contest before. I am a regular guy who usually hunts deer by myself on public lands. I only have 2 small bucks to my name. I can't believe I might have an opportunity to see a buck even close to this...let alone get a shot at one. Holy friggin wow. I HOPE we can make this work...believe me, I will be plenty flexible wink.gif

Thanks again for this contest and once in a lifetime opportunity as far as I am concerned.

TJM, I know what you are saying about people talking about the deer they shoot. When we would register deer in our Buck contest, everyone that shot an 8 point thought they had a 200 pounder. Most were 175-180 lbs. How old do you think that buck you shot was? Under good conditions next year do you think it would have scored higher? I'm a rookie at this deer hunting stuff yet but my father in law saw one last season similar to yours about a 1/4 mile from where I hunt so hopefully things go right and it survived the off season.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      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

      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?
