Some good calling advice

I'll grunt 2-5 times in a row then pause for 10 seconds.Repeat this about 3 or 4 times.I'll use short deer grunts until the last 4 or 5 grunts.The last of my calls will be long loud and deep with a rasp to it.

I'll wait about 30 seconds then smash a big set of antlers together and make it sound like war world 3 and keep this up for 10 minutes if nothing comes in.Then stop wait about a minute then do several long loud deep grunts

Dont do this when your hunting alone.Most of the time you'll get busted so have a friend(S) along to do the shooting and take turns from spot to spot

Set the shooters up about 40 yards away from the guy doing the clashing.Try and set up so the deer wont want to come in down wind of the caller.

Read up on what came into this on Oct 21st/22nd winner is

I have been doing this for about 4 or 5 years now.Works very well for the next week to 10 days after that throw this idea out the window until next season

I rattled in a small buck this last week. I also watched a larger buck come out into a field about 400 yards away and watch 2 small bucks sparing for about 10 minutes, but did not come any closer to them. Hopefully as things heat up, the bigger boys will start to show some interest.

I shot a doe this morning that was grunting kinda like a buck.I thought for sure it was a buck coming in, but it was a mature doe with her nose to the ground and grunting every so often.She came in broadside at 10 yards and I sunk the Thunderhead through both lungs and she went 50 yards and tipped over.Now for the skinning, and butchering! Hmmmm, I wonder what I'm gonna have for supper tonight? grin.gif

      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.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      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.
