OK.....I'll start this one

15 posts in this topic

Every year we post list of things we bring to deer camp. I know it helped me to remember a few thing s last year. We should post 3 things that people tend to forget. I bet it will help a few of us. And if not it's fun to talk about deer camp anyways.

Camera.....Forgot 2 years ago. Shot my first deer and have no pic of it

Watch.....We want to shoot when it is legal

String....Now we have to use string or wire to tag deer

What are the odds I forget one of these things? Haha

Have a safe deer hunting season, Kid

1. License (A return trip home is never fun)

2. Water (bottles for hydration, Jugs for rinsing out deer and washing hands)

3. Rubber Gloves (Saves on clean up when gutting deer, just be sure to pack them out with you)

The list could go on and on, but these are things that I have forgotten in the past.

1.Rope - to drag deer if you have a long drag and to pull stuff up to your stand.

2.Chair or bucket to sit on(I forget this every year. Lucky we stay at my grandparents and my grandpa is a farmer so he has tons of buckets.)

3. Beer - for skinning & defatting deer at night grin.gif

Well every year I have been lucky enough to make a few lists and double check and load the vehicle about 4 days before...however...last year..no list and oh man what a mistake...my what a costly mistake that was...

1) Clip for semi-auot (expensive when you find one at a small town's convienant store)

2) Grunt Call

3) Beer

Don't forget the necessities:

1) Ibuprofine

2) Antacids

3) Baby wipes (work great for cleaning yourself up when you're in the middle of nowehere for a week with no running water)

1. Baby wipes(great for the unexpected squat and for cleaning up after gutting and easy to carry in a small travel case)

2. Zip ties(for tagging)- better than tangled rope and cutting to length

3. couple of plastic bags(for picking up trash you may find or for the heart/tongue etc)

Do you mean some people actually attached the license with string? So far I've used boot laces, green twigs, and a thin strip of doe ear. It took me years to remember to bring toilet paper, I've got a full line of belly shirts to prove it.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy. "   Just because you are not glowing doesn't mean its necessarily healthy for a fetus it takes awhile for it to build up in a healthy adult that's just my           Methylmercury exposure in Wisconsin: A case study series” (2005)
      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
