I had a situation where a buck was following a doe and fawn ,he was not hot on her tail just laid back following her. I tried some grunting both buck and doe , just enough to get his attention, he looked but he just stayed with the doe, any suggestions on what to try next time to maybe convince him to come my way. And how about the doe what can i do maybe to coax her in if i could get her in the buck would follow im sure, maybe a fawn bleat ? i dont have the can call should i try one of them. I could have tried rattling i guess but i didnt want to scare the doe off , because id a taken her given the opportunity.

At least twice that I can think of I've pulled in a doe that was towing a buck with the can call. Shot both the first time. The doe either saw or smelled me & hung up in the brush the other time. If they're that far apart & there's any wind & he's still in the cover, with the bow you can shoot the doe & the buck will still come in. He just thinks she took off again to stay in front of him. It's a sweet deal.

I've had more deer run in for the can than anything. I've had just as many deer basically ignore it, but they don't seem to get spooked by it for me.

I have had great success in pulling bucks away with a doe bleat. I can do it pretty well myself, but if I have time I will try using "the can". Pulled in a BIG buck off a hot doe last year, and made a crappy shot missing him just low frown.gif

I spotted a buck nearly 100 yds off Tuesday evening. Using "the can" I turned him in my direction but could not get him to fully commit from the thicket.

Lately i've been grunting and bleating at every deer that comes by just to see how they react. It seems like does and fawns ignore everything incuding rattling. On the other hand I've had a few bucks charge right in. I guess it all depends on thier mood. Most deer though dont react to the calls at all.

If a buck is on a hot doe,you will have a very hard time trying to pull him from here.If he is following her and she is not receptive then a little doe in heat and a call might do the trick.I have never had any luck with the can call.As far as rattling goes,its good before the rut,but during not a great help.Sometimes things just dont work.With the fawn tagging along with the doe,you will know that she is not ready as the doe will kick her away when its time to mate.

You could try to put some doe in heat in the general area and use a doe in heat call and see if you get better results.

It is so close to full rut that it will be very hard to get a buck to leave a doe.Before the major rut,you will have a chase phase where the bucks will run the does almost to death trying to mate with them.

I would just get in a high doe area,put out scent and call a small amount and wait.Sooner or later they will come by.Also,dont be afraid to hunt during the daylight hours as these bucksif cool,will run all day.

Went out this morning for a couple of hours, nothing responded to my calling. 3 days ago I grunted in 3 different bucks. The rut is definately changing in the area. I did see one new rub by my stand this morning, the deer thats making it is a monster. Probably the one that got away from me last weekend. One doe came in this morning and my calling had no effect on her. I guess maybe its time to stop rattling and start using the can and estrus. Good luck.

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.

      Went out to Otter Lake (next to Bald Eagle) on Wednesday, a lake filled with hammerhandles and could barely make out three small pike in the dirty water before giving up.  Was up on a lake in the Horseshoe chain that is also supposed to be filled with small pike and saw zero but the wife caught a small on a tip-up.  At least a big catfish came in and sat at the bottom of the hole for well over an hour.

      That’s a bucket list trip for me.  No reason that I haven’t been there yet outside of the fact it isn’t in my normal territory.  And that’s an ironic statement for me to make! Come to think of it, I should just plan it and go.  It’ll never happen otherwise.  Anybody got any pointers for heading that direction?  I wouldn’t even know where to start.  Pretty self sufficient for gear and travel and could figure it out eventually but a helping hand or even a guide reference would be appreciated.

      The ice is gone now. More than likely won't be anymore this year.

       that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.

      Upper Red nears record winter harvest Ice fishing on Upper Red Lake has slowed in recent weeks, but the walleye harvest is on track to set or approach a wintertime record, numbers from an annual winter creel survey show. According to Henry Drewes, regional fisheries supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji, anglers through January had kept about 125,000 pounds of walleyes. The wintertime high for Minnesota's portion of the lake was slightly more than 140,000 pounds in 2015, DNR statistics show. Anglers harvested 109,327 pounds of walleyes in the winter of 2017, according to DNR creel survey results. "If we have an average February, we'll be right in that area" of 140,000 pounds, Drewes said. "Catch rates and pressure have really tapered off in the last (few weeks). I think that's related to winter fatigue and a slower bite." Wheel houses, which have exploded in popularity among winter anglers in recent years, now account for more than 80 percent of the ice fishing pressure on Upper Red, Drewes said. Anglers on Upper Red can keep four walleyes, of which only one can be longer than 17 inches. Walleye and northern pike season on Upper Red and other Minnesota inland waters closes Sunday, Feb. 25 and reopens Saturday, May 12. The Minnesota DNR manages 48,000 acres of Upper Red, while the remaining 72,000 acres are within the boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation and managed by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa. -- Brad Dokken Grand Forks Herald
