in my area that i hunt ive used my buck decoy and it just gets to those bucks. i wish i had my cam with because i had two bucks around my decoy and finally one of those bucks challenged it. i honestly couldnt believe it myself, i never seen anything like it before. so i would say use the buck decoy and try alittle grunt every now and then. good luck!

Used mine as a doe the other night for the first time this year. I had a spike come up & give me some shot opps, but he wouldn't come all the way to it, 12-15 yards from the decoy was as close as he'd get, still too close if I wanted him. If he only knew...

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
