2006 Wyoming Mule Deer Hunt Pics...

10 posts in this topic

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.

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
