Arden hills youth hunt ?

3 posts in this topic

A buddies kid got picked for the youth hunt at the arden hills armory. Anyone hunt or been in there? We know where he should set up. We drove around it and kinda scouted you can see the hills trees pond so we have an idea of what it looks like. Any extra info would be great its his kids first big bow hunt the kid past up 3 small 6 pts. already waiting for arden hills.

Some big deer in that area. I drive by it every morning, wishing I had a youth to take hunting! I routinely see 4-5 deer walking the roads in the stretch paralelling Cty Road I. I've seen (a couple times) a buck that looks to be at least 140". Last time it had it's nose in a tree, so I couldn't count points (especially at 45 mph!). It seems to be at least an 8 pt., but I'm leaning towards 10. Anyway, hope your buddies kid has a blast. Post pics if he arrows the big one.

Send him my way. I've done quite a bit of field-work out there relating to my job. I'll be able to help out as I've spent many hours out there driving around and working.

I'm envious. I saw the largest buck of my life out there two years ago. The thing was an even 12 that probably taped around 24+ inches wide, and heavy the whole way through. I got to watch it for about 2 minutes, and it ended up about 15 yards from me before it saw me. Never saw him again.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
