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.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
