Just Sharing - Deer & Elk Hunt Pics

5 posts in this topic

I've got an uncle and a couple of cousins who live in South Dakota who have taken some nice deer these past couple years. Just wanted to share their pictures. Deer pics are South Dakota deer.

Also, my one cousin guides elk hunts in Montana. I think this is his second year doing it. Also wanted to share a couple of pics I got from his guide trips, although whomever took the one pic didn't do a very good job.

Not mega-trophy bucks, but all nice ones in my opinion. One of these days I'm going to have to get out there and join them for a hunt! smirk.gif

Thanks.... With 1 day 8 hours and 45 mins left before hunting you have to go put me over the edge by showing me all those cool pictures.

Looks like some great animals. I could only hope to be that lucky this weekend.

thanks for shareing.

At least they're not related to you! wink.gif Here I got relatives going out shooting these nice bucks and sending me pictures of them year after year. What's even worse is they've scouted bigger bucks in the area they hunt, but had to "settle" for these deer because it was at the end of their hunting trip. I told them "Gee, that must suck". crazy.giftongue.gif

Mega-trophis might not have been the right word to use. Mega-bucks might have been better. They are dandies, no doubt, and I wouldn't have a problem mounting any one of them! smile.gif

Funny thing about the buck in the first pic...my cousin hit it with his bow the night before, couldn't find it, the next day he and a buddy were duck hunting down the creek you see in the backround, they see a rack on shore and sure enough, it's got the arrow he shot it with!

Ya just never know how things will work out sometimes. smirk.gif

      Nice Fish ST! Loadmaster, I hope it was nothing major or serious that had you in the hospital.  I was just informed by the Chief of Staff that I get to do house projects this weekend..sigh..maybe Monday I'll get to go out.

      I went yesterday.  Bite was good.  Saw lots of people catching fish.

      Sorry...been posting a few pics in the Panfish section...I've been out a lot chasing crappies, started 10 days after ice out. I did the eye opener and we did good real shallow 4-6ft with jig and shiner but that one eye outing is it for me unless I go out late fall for them again.  Crappies bite has been real good...just not in normal spots...not many spawned in the shallow reeds but beds we deeper 5-7 ft in many lakes. I've been as far North as Little Bemidji to as far South as S. Lida and many lakes in between. Went out Saturday morning early and found them in 12.5ft suspended real high; used the smallest rap they make and just fan casted all around the boat and they were aggressive.  Cabbage is coming up and healthy in most lakes and they will be moving into the cabbage when it warms up. Water clarity has been unbelievable in every lake I've been on so far. Another yo-yo weather pattern makes it more challenging for sure....but search and you will find.

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.

      A 6-mile section of the Glacial Lakes State Trail will be closed as contractors work on improvements, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
      Trail users will see intermittent closures until June 1 as workers remove trees and brush that are near the work area. The segment between the trailhead in Willmar and Spicer’s south side at Progress Way is scheduled to close on June 5 as workers begin mill and overlay work on the trail’s westernmost 6 miles. The project is scheduled for completion by Aug. 25. In addition to a smooth, new surface, trail users will enjoy new benches, improved accessibility, and paved crossings at gravel road intersections. The current 8-foot trail width will also be expanded to 10 feet. “We think our trail users will be pleased with these improvements,” said Jeremy Losinski, area supervisor for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “The wider trail will provide easier passage. Plus, the smoother pavement replaces the trail’s oldest paved surface, which is now more than 20 years old. It had deteriorated and reached the end of its life cycle.” Contractors will also be replacing several culverts along the trail to provide better drainage. “While we want to make sure everyone is safe, there will still be opportunities to use parts of the trail during construction,” Losinski said. “The construction will start in Willmar and work its way toward Spicer, so small portions of the trail will have limited use. Our trail users may not be able to go all the way from Willmar to Spicer during times in the construction process. We just ask that our trail users obey the closure signs and avoid construction equipment.” Prinsburg-based Duininck, Inc., is the contractor. Construction updates will be posted on the DNR’s Glacial Lakes State Trail Web page. The 22-mile western segment of the Glacial Lakes State Trail links Willmar with the Kandiyohi/Stearns County line. The 5-mile eastern segment connects Roscoe to Cold Spring. Built on the former Burlington Northern railroad grade, a total of 27 miles is paved as the trail cuts across the border between Minnesota’s western tallgrass prairie and eastern deciduous forest.
