Snow

10 posts in this topic

We are getting some snow today -- any idea how that will help hunting in the next few days?

well, you will at least be able to tell how old some of the sign is.. and they are a little easier to pick out of the brush when there is a little snow on the ground.

Good point.

A buddy of mine shot a deer two nights ago and tracked him for two hours. Then it took him another hour to find his way back.

That is the band thing about bow hunting at dark. Sometimes they are tough to find.

Do you think this bad weather will bring them out a little earlier?

I have over the years found if a big storm is brewing then the deer will come out to feed.Once the storm hits I usually just wait it out and then pop in the woods soon after as they will be hungry.

I had hoped to hit it last night while the first snow of the year was on the ground, but it melted yesterday afternoon. That first snow is great to hunt, in our area, we haven't really truly had it, because it was so slight & didn't last more then 12-15 hours. I did see four deer in the horrible wind behind the hill I thought they'd be at, unfortunately while I was trying to call some far out ones in a close one snuck in close from behind me & spotted me.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
