Monitoring Monster bucks

7 posts in this topic

Wouldn't it be neat if they could implant a deer with a device that you could monitor there where abouts on the internet. I think they could come up with a way to do that without being able to use that info for hunting purposes. Just use it for enjoyment and to see how close people really come to seeing the big boys. Any thoughts or additions to this post would be appreciated wink.gif

Great idea but the issue would be to get initally close enough to get the GPS device planted in the Big Boy.

Wait we are back at step one again...

ALREADY DONE!!!! Well almost... I dont know where you look it up. But Dr. Deer- James Kroll and some others have implated a camera on a wild bucks antlers. I dont think they tell us WERE it is but you can watch it ANYTIME on-line and its "real time" "live". Also there is sound on your computer for any vocalizations the deer make.

It looks pretty neat but I really dont know the details. Maybe someone else who knows more will post something. Try to search it??? wink.gif

I think I watched that on OLN but I thought it was on a game farm plus I thought it was a GPS device not a camera because the rack was worth $$ and they wanted the sheds.

Slimngrizzly is correct. They have a camera mounted on the head of a deer, not sure if its a buck or not. You can pull it up on your computer anytime and see what the deer is seeing, live. There is a cost though. I think its like $40 a year or something.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.
