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.

thanks,

mr

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

Hey Meat Run...How in the world are you getting kitchen passes to bowhunt. Or are you sneaking away part of your work day? HMMMM...Must be nice!

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

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
