Stil deer hunting in Brainerd???

9 posts in this topic

Hey anybody still deer hunting it the lakes area (archery now)??? Hey WalleyDan and news from your camp? Does anybody have any news if they are still getting out and/or seeing any bucks?

I'm now ramping up some archery hunting now that zone 2 is closed and safe to walk public land. Any news is good news.

Been pretty slow for me. With the gun season just getting over the deer seem to still be a little skitish.Have seen a couple small does just before dark but way to small to shoot. Still got 46 days to tag the 8 ptr ive seen. Yes he is still alive. Seen him one night coming home from work at 11 pm standing on the road. Glad the gun hunters didnt get him.

I haven't been in the woods this week so I'm not sure what is going on. I was hoping the snow would stick a little longer so I could see where they were moving, but not so. I still plan on sticking one before we get into the ice season. I was out on the water (Gull) tonight and we (Tim) caught about 8 walleye's. A couple were keepers the rest went back. Jigs. I was going for big momma but she didn't bite. We did land a 27 incher on Sunday evening though. I'm sorry, you wanted to know about hunting. I had my 4 year old son up in the tree with me last Saturday and that was pretty cool (long story). We did see a couple of does that were getting chased around. We didn't see the buck, but my neighbor drilled him about 200 yards or so from us. It only had half a rack (3 pointer). I hunt mainly public land and some private that gets hunted pretty heavily, so I think they are a bit shy at this point and probably sticking tight to the thick stuff until night fall. I hope to give you a report one of these days though!

Good luck meat,

Walleyedan

The bucks are holding pretty close to the does. Only saw a couple of spikers this afternoon. Still waiting to see the big one.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
