Location of the Minnesota Monarch?

6 posts in this topic

Wondering if anyone knows the area the Minnesota Monarchs sheds were found. On North America Whitetail it just says a remote forest in Northern Minnesota where this guy fed the deer every year. It doesnt give a county or notin. Just wondering if anyone knows what forest, county, city, or any type of location the sheds were found by.

Just type in Minnesota Monarch on ask.com or google it and get to the north american whitetail page and it gives pictures and a story not where it was found though. Coulda been the biggest buck ever.

The only thing it really says is remote northern Minnesota. It also says pack of timberwolves and wilderness lake. It also says it came to the feeder in '89, '90, and '91 or something like that. I don't think the wolve population back in those days went any farther south than Duluth. If I would guess I would draw a line from Duluth to the Iron Range then from the Range north to Canada. Anywhere east-northeast of that line. I know that is a huge area but that is the best I can put it at. Anyone else have any guesses to further narrow this range?

I remember reading an interesting article on it years ago. The man that lived there did not want the location disclosed, and went to great lengths to assure that it would not be figured out. That's probably why you won't find it in print anywhere.

"Someone" knows I'm sure, but with any secret, there comes quite a bit of conjecture and guesses.

I think what Biff mentioned is probably the best logical estimate without further information.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
