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 have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
