5 posts in this topic

How safe do you guys think it is to bring the kids pheasant hunting during deer season???

Depending on where you go there are parts of pheasant country that are closed until next Saturday...if it were me I would wait until the season is over or hit a game farm.

Last year I went opening weekend. I was a bit hesitant about it but it turned out to be awesome!!

I was one of the only pheasant hunters out there. I hunted only public land and ran into no problems. I vowed to make it a tradition but I ended up deer hutning again this year.

I say go for it!

I've pheasant hunted a lot during deer season, its actually very good, not much competition from other bird hunters and the pheasants seem to get used to the idea of hunters walking by them - until you come along with your dog!!! smile.gif Surprise!!! By the time you start hunting at 9, most deer hunters have left, just watch for deer drives in progress, and I like to put a red collar on any brown/yellow dog that I have. Also pick areas that have more grass and not so many trees that attract deer and deer hunters.

We actually took a break both saturday and sunday from about 10:30 to 2:30 each day and hunted pheasants. We stayed on a mix of private and WMA's. Made sure there were no deer hunters we would be infringing on. Did not see anybody else Pheasant hunting either day. Orange collars on the dogs, did very well. Way to warm for us to deer hunt in the heat of the day, bucks did not seem to be running does in our area, so roodies were a nice break.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
