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.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
