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!

8 deer for 12 for us. We hunted on my land near Pine river. 5 bucks and 3 does one real nice 9 pointer. 5 of us are hunting my brothers land along the sauk river this weekend. It should be fun I really enjoy slug hunting. Makeing deer drives is always a blast.

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.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.

      I'm a local and yes we boycott the place. Friends have been told that they aren't wanted there that they only want the tourist business. Wife and I boat to Wolf Bay when we go out. We live 2 miles from the landing and wish it was still run by Jack.

      Well I made a decision to put the trolling rods away and go do some jigging.   It seemed to be a good one.  I concentrated on rocky transition areas.  I had three slot fish in an hour.  Went back in for some VC pizza and picked my kids up and went back out for a evening trolling run and that produced as well.  You have to love this lake.

      We have friends up and they wanted to take us out for dinner, via the boat.  With the wind, the only place was the landing, I tried vetoing It, but lost out.  Had $12.00 burger and fries.  Very good and the service was fast-only 8 others in the dinning area and a few at the bar.  I checked the prices on the wings-$16.00 for 1-1/2lbs.  Del, they had a pretty good burger menu.  I asked about the 20% off deal and the waiter blew me off and said he didn't know anything about it.  I asked who I should talk to, he said the manager or the owner.  We paid the bill and left without asking.  I liked it a few winters ago when they had ,25 wings and 2.00 beers.
