Getting Deer out of rushes

5 posts in this topic

I hunted with a group of 9 and we walked everything. When we walked sloughs the deer would not get up unless you stepped right on them. When they did get up they wouldn't come out. They would just move to a different spot in the slough. The big does and bucks definitly won't get up unless you step on them. Does anyone have any tricks on how to get them out.

We just round up as many people as possible and give it a shot. We yell, talk loud, break stuff...just try to make as much noise as possible as you weave back and forth. Sometimes the occasional pause will make them nervous and they will bust out. Its a tough one crazy.gif

You should set up a tripod stand for next year in the swamp. Swamp hunting during the gun season can be really good. Or sit along a major trail running into the swamp.

In wetlands you really don't need to get up that high to have a good advantage.

Good luck!

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
