Recommended Posts

Any idea's about the deer hunting forecast up there this fall?

Sorry if I'm in the wrong section just wondering about water levels up past red lake up in the swamps (big bog area)? Thanks, cool.gif

Over the past 2-3 years I know Ive seen 2 fawns with just about every doe, so Im guessing it should be good. That is ofcourse if Kelly P's scouting and tracking skills are up to par this year! grin.gif Ill be up on fri morning.

Good Luck.....

I am back home from my deer hunting trip "up north!" My son and me had a blast. I got my doe, and my sonn saw more deer from his stand than anyother hunter. No shots fired but he had the time of his life. We shot 4 deer (3 bucks and a doe), the only doe we saw by the way. We passed up (rrr) or uh messed up on 2 more bucks and passed on a spike buck. There were 6 hunters in camp this year and a couple of buddies came along just for the ride,(Party). It was good to see them.

My youngest cousin with shot 2 of the bucks and 1 was a really nice 8 pointer and I think he went ahead and had it mounted.

pics soon, cool.gif

Congrads!! It sounds like you did better then 90% of the groups around Waskish. The worst I've heard of is one group that has hunted here for over 50 years and never saw a deer this year. frown.gif It is looking like the rut is just starting here now or never happened.

Hello Kelly P.

Well I was standing in the West Wind lodge talking with a nice gal behind the bar, she was from St. Cloud originally. (sorry i forgot her name). But any who... I was wandering if you'd come stolling in. I never have enough time to really enjoy myself and see everyone I want to. To much to do, and really enjoyed myself while there.

Have a great season. Mikinaak aka Paul cool.gif

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
