IS It Worth IT???

9 posts in this topic

Is it worth it for you to spend $160.00 for a non-resident deer tag? I was debating this for the Wisc. Opener...

Depends how bad you really want to hunt. Several years back I hunted by grantsburg and it was great. Shot a nice seven pionter and ended up seeing 50 plus deer that day. Before I shot my buck I had 17 does and fawns walk under my stand, that was a first. Saw one big buck and no shot was available.I would really love to hunt Wisconsin again but I probly would be divorced if I did because of all the days I put in in Minnesota. My nefew and bro-in-law hunt in Wisconsin and live in Minnesota and they dont hunt in Minnesota any more, because of all the deer that they get. So to answer your Question I think yes its worth it. and the deer tend to have this cheese flavor (couldnt resist it.)

Yes it is absolutely worth it. I grew up in Wisconsin. Now that I live in Minnesota I have to pay the non-resident fees anytime I want to hunt there. Theres tons of BIG bucks there. Lots of agriculture so they are eating good. Nothing tastes better than a fat doe from Wisconsin. Do yourself a favor and buy a tag if you have a place to hunt there. Good luck!

Is there any public land worth hunting or is it just like MN? I live only 15 minutes from taylors falls and getting to northern WI would be not too hard.

well my friend's family has some private land in haywood so I was just wondering if it will be worth it is all. I mean, I did just spend over 2,000 on a shotgun set up and have only shot 16 rounds through it... 15 was for sighting it in.. 1 was a missed shot at 10 yards grin.gif

This year I only bought a WI licence(bow)... and didn't buy a MN licence. For me I know of a ton more public land with plenty of deer in WI. For me, its worth the $160...

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
