Deer Hunting 2007

10 posts in this topic

First weekend is done and how did you all do?

I went out with my the in-laws to the piece of property we hunt near Eden Valley opening day. I climbed into the stand with bow in hand and the others had guns.

8:00am came around and my father in law got a real nice 10 point buck- beautiful deer. That was it for our group of 3.

Got out to the stand after lunch and as we were walking in, we kicked up a deer mad.gif and the party hunting next to our piece of land shot twice and we thought they got the deer. That group spent the entire night hollerin' and screamin' through a big slough trying to find the deer. I know we didn't see anything because of their commotion...frustrating really!

The 10 point buck made up for the evening hunt!

How did you do?!?!

I hunted near Rice. Our group got 4 deer which is about average and all we want. I was happy. But, how can you not be happy while hunting.

I went near Babbit for the opener. First time in the big north woods. Saw only two white tails flicking in the brush on Sunday after the sun came out. No shots fired.

Friday night at 1:30am I had to go outside the cabin for awhile and as I was gazing at the bright moonlight I got to hear a wolf howl. Then three more joined in for a wolf chorus. One wolf was not too far away. Very neat to hear. If I was a deer I would have left the neighborhood. I'm glad I had a cabin to walk back into. Maybe that's why our group didn't see anything on Saturday.

Good Luck this coming weekend.

We were up near Sandstone. Went 3 for 6 for the weekend with 2 bucks and a doe. I'll be heading that direction again on Friday night.

Good Luck!

Sounds like people are seeing deer. Outdoor News was just delievered today 125,000 whitetails registered this past weekend! Not sure if that is good or bad?!? Depends how the rest of the year goes.

The heat didn't help this week.Temps are suppose to be cooler again starting tonight- through the next several weeks so hopefully that will get the rut going and get more deer moving.

Good Luck this weekend guys

Haven't hunted 2007 yet but looking forward to it. wink.gif We have a group of 7 and hunt the Wadena - Cass County line just a couple miles north of Oylen, MN. We ended up with 9. Two fawns, four does, and three bucks. Bucks we a 5 point, 6 point and 9 point. Saw plenty of deer Saturday morning alone between the 7 of us we saw 23 deer. Sunday evening when I took the 9 point there were 14 deer (two of them spikes) that were in the field just before he stepped out and another 4 that passed through the field behind me. Nine pointer was in the 230 pound dressed range with 19" inside spread. Registered him at the Motley BP sation on our way home Sun. night and was told he was by far the biggest registered there to that point. Hunting party is already looking forward to 2007.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.
