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.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
