2006 Wyoming Mule Deer Hunt Pics...

Recommended Posts

Dag_1979

This first mulie is a 5x5 I shot opening morning. My cousin and I glassed 4 bucks feeding near an alfalfa field for about an hour, and I decided to take this buck over the other smaller bucks which included a huge 3x3, a smaller 4x4, and a very small 2x2. We put a stalk on, decided on a ravine leading away from the alfalfa field with the wind in our favor, and the bucks came right to us! The big buck gave me an 80 yard shot.

This next buck was taken on opening day also, and was by far the closest shot I have ever seen anyone have the opportunity to take. This a Jeff with a nice 5x4 taken at 7 yds with his 7mm mag encore. Yes, thats right I said 7 yds. He played the wind perfect after we watched the buck bed down, and put on an awesome stalk.

This pic is a nice 4x4 my brother took on the 2nd day of the hunt. Not too sure on the details to this hunt because I wasn't there, but I believe the buck was shot around 125 yds with his .243. Very unique buck either way.

Dag:

Does the Jeff in that picture happen to be from the St. Cloud area? If that is him...I know him well.

Thanks!

He is a dandy Dag. Congrats. Boy you guys went early. We used to hunt up by Hulett and it always opened Nov 1. Did they change their seasons now? Been about 6-7 years since I was there.

The Jeff in the picture is from Emmons Mn. We have been hunting the opener (Oct 1) for the last 15 yrs, I believe it is general region B.

      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.

      1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.” Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge

      Moved house on Friday night in the dark.  Got holes drilled and let aired out.  Came back out after supper to fish for crappies.  Only small ones but had some action.  Got up early on Saturday and tried chasing tuilibee's and struck out.  Graphed a few but not a bite.  Switched back to the house around 8:30/9.  Buddies were near the house and had one crappie in the bucket.  Five of us fished till 11:30 without a crappie being bigger than 9".  Went back out after lunch fished till supper and nothing.  Came out again after supper got a 14" and 12.5" in 5 minutes and not a fish after that.  Sunday fished from 7 am till 11 nothing bigger than a 8" crappie.  Fished 3 hours Friday, 12 hours Saturday, 4.5 hours Sunday with only 2 crappies over 10".  Pretty sad but heard a ton of poor reports all over the area.

      Fished long point sat/sun morning... It was bad.  Had some friends fishing out of Borderview it was slow over there as well.  Tried all the colors.  Not very aggressive on the ones we did catch.  Had heard fishing was good of course on the days before sat.

      I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.

      We fished Wednesday afternoon.through Friday out of Zippel. It was not as cloudy as the weatherman predicted. Our best day ended up being Thursday. The two of us in our shack limited out by noon, most were sauger. Hot lure was a 1/8oz glow red shiner Tingler spoon and a plain red hook under a bobber. We were in 26ft

      Landowners can generate revenue by allowing public hunting on their private land in 46 Minnesota counties through the Department of Natural Resources Walk-In Access Program. Sign-ups are Monday, Jan. 22, to Friday, April 27.  “This program is a win-win for landowners and hunters,” said Scott Roemhildt, DNR Walk-In Access coordinator. “And what’s more, by signing up for three years, landowners can qualify for habitat enhancement on their Walk-In Access acres.” For Walk-In Access, eligible parcels must be at least 40 acres and covered by high quality natural vegetation. Landowners are paid by the acre to allow hunting access from Sept. 1 to May 31. Bonuses are paid on parcels that enroll in a three-year contract, are more than 140 acres and are located near a state wildlife management area or federal waterfowl production area. “This may be an opportune time for landowners to sign up for this program because there is some uncertainty about how it will be funded in the 2018 Farm Bill,” Roemhildt said. In a change this year, landowners who enroll in a three-year contract also may qualify for up to $20,000 in habitat enhancements on their land for prescribed burning, removing invasive trees and brush, or planting native species. Walk-In Access parcels are for public hunting only and no motorized vehicles are allowed on conservation land. Bright yellow-green signs identify area boundaries and parking is along roads or in designated parking areas. Recreational use laws provide extra liability protection for acres enrolled in Walk-In Access. Walk-In Access began in 2011 and has grown to more than 26,700 acres in 2017. The program is currently funded through 2018 with a three-year grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under number 69-3A75-16-509. Other funding comes through a surcharge on nonresident hunting licenses, a one-time appropriation from the Minnesota Legislature in 2012 and donations from hunters. Landowners should contact their local soil and water conservation district office for enrollment information. Details can be found at mndnr.gov/walkin. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Yea, the guys having issues with the k-drill/fuel combo are not claring out their ice shavings enough. I have had 0 issues with binding or overheating.  Have been drilling through ice that comes up to the foam the last three days.
