Dust my slug gun off!!

6 posts in this topic

I am so pumped! Originally I had planned to take a SD West River trip, but I decided to head back home for the slug season instead. It's been four years since I have pulled the trigger on my 870! Can't wait to hang with the guys I grew up hunting deer with!

A quality weapon for me is my 7mm or my cannon,my 300 mag.The 300 is a deer killer and cleaner all in one if you hit the deer in the wrong spot.

But,it drops those deer just as goos as my slug gun.

Good luck Rost.

Our wives think it's silly that we were doin the can-can in the driveway waving doe tags. Doesn't eveyone do this????

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
