The top scoring 8 pt bucks in Boone and Crockett are just a bit over 180 inches. I don't recall the exact numbers.

Thats not MN scores, thats the all time top deer on their list for 8 pt frames.

He won't put up a pic. I asked him to, but he's afraid it's going to get stolen. I think he said he's putting a pic in the outdoor news. His story is really interesting too, in that 1/2 hour before he shot it, his temp stand collapsed and he fell 18 feet...but didn't get hurt. Amazingly lucky.

He said he did a rookie measurement, and came up with mid 150's...so maybe not a record, but extremely nice.

Shot it in afton, east of the twin cities.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
