4 posts in this topic

I know the Bucks are chasing now but my question is has anyone seen them giving it up yet? Don't mean to sound vulger just dont know how else to polightly put it.

Going to get back out on saturday and just would like some feed back as to the stage of the rut we are now dealing with.

I am hunting just north of Redwing for the remainder of the season.

I have not been out since last Thursday and things were moving good then.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, they are. I live in a wooded setting and stepped out my back door about 4:30 today and had a doe come charging down the hill right into my yard. a few seconds later here comes this nasty little forkie. Well she stood for him and they had fun about 7 or 8 times. I have never in my life actually seen "the act." Interesting and funny at the same time. You could tell he was young, lol! She only has 3 legs and had two fawns with her when I saw her last 4 or 5 days ago but the fawns were gone today, so they really do kick them out.

I think the "heat" usually picks up towards the second season of deer hunting. About 10 years ago I was driving around the first weekend (we hunt 2nd weekend) scouting out deer when I came to the bottom of a hill and saw a nice 8-point mounting a doe just 75 yards from the road is a plowed cornfield! Exhebitionists! wink.gif I watched for a couple minutes, then continued driving up and over the hill of the road I was on, only to see a group of 6 deer hunters standing there eating their lunch on the side of the road. I just laughed inside. smile.gif

Nearly every year when we hunt second season we'll see some smaller bucks bangin' heads, or bucks with their noses to the ground completely oblivious to what's around them.

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
