5 posts in this topic

i called my uncle today to fill him in on deer hunting this weekend. he said his brother-in-law was driving around the west metro and had another truck comin at him and a bull moose passed right inbetween the two trucks. they called the cops and said there was another reporting of a sighting early this morning. just wondering if anyone else has seen the bull?

It's true there is a large Bull moose running around the Chanhassen area. It has been seen a few times today. So watch the driving would not be good to hit him. I do think at least one of my buddies has a picture so I'll see what I can do. WCCO also had it on the 6 o'clock news.

It happens from time to time. There was one in the Elk River Ostego area about 6 or 7 years back I saw it personally. some times it is cause by a brain disease sometime just a Rut crazed bull. However this far out of its range I would bet it is mighty confused.

My cousin from Long Prairie told me of a guy he knows who went to his bowhunting land last month and as he pulled in the driveway of the farm he spotted three very large(like 50") bull moose walking in the pasture.

He rushed in to get the farmer and told him to watch just beyond the barn and he'd see something very cool in a couple seconds. The farmer was obviously amazed when three stud bulls wandered by. I guess they bedded down in his pasture and half the town of Long Prairie was out there looking them over that night.

I've heard of numerous strays over the years, but never three bulls at once.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
