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!

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
