Big Buck Contest

30 posts in this topic

Hey guys I was looking on the KQ website and I just noticed that fellow Fmer Darrin Nelsons awesome 18 point buck is getting out voted by a smaller deer in the KQDS Biggest Rack contest. We cant let a fellow FMer go down without a fight! For those of you who dont know Darrins one of my tourney fishing partners and a heck of a fisherman as well as bow hunter.

Lets do our best to get our votes in for Darrin and win him a free mount and processing for that beautiful buck he got with his bow.

Not much time left so get those votes in quickly.

Once the whisper campaign gets out & folks look at the contest Darrin's deer will finish above Bob's.

Good Luck All MN Deer Guys!

I put my vote up.

I think it should be known though that the second place feller is no other then fellow FM'er Hunter Laker.

Darrin got my vote! Looks like an obvious choice, but you gotta think someone is stuffing the ballot box! There is no question who has the biggest buck. But Darrin needs like 50 votes to pull ahead. Congrats Darrin and good luck.

Who wound up winning? I looked on KQ's website and the contest is down. I wonder if they found out someone found a way to stack thier box? One minute Darrin was upp by over a hundred and a few minutes later the guy had over 700 votes. Oh well I hope Darrin and Hunterlaker got something out of the deal. Their 2 deer were the 1st and second place deer.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.

      I'm a local and yes we boycott the place. Friends have been told that they aren't wanted there that they only want the tourist business. Wife and I boat to Wolf Bay when we go out. We live 2 miles from the landing and wish it was still run by Jack.

      Well I made a decision to put the trolling rods away and go do some jigging.   It seemed to be a good one.  I concentrated on rocky transition areas.  I had three slot fish in an hour.  Went back in for some VC pizza and picked my kids up and went back out for a evening trolling run and that produced as well.  You have to love this lake.

      We have friends up and they wanted to take us out for dinner, via the boat.  With the wind, the only place was the landing, I tried vetoing It, but lost out.  Had $12.00 burger and fries.  Very good and the service was fast-only 8 others in the dinning area and a few at the bar.  I checked the prices on the wings-$16.00 for 1-1/2lbs.  Del, they had a pretty good burger menu.  I asked about the 20% off deal and the waiter blew me off and said he didn't know anything about it.  I asked who I should talk to, he said the manager or the owner.  We paid the bill and left without asking.  I liked it a few winters ago when they had ,25 wings and 2.00 beers.
