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 found fish on Friday like the old days it was a lot of fun but I decided not to deal with the slush and the sled on Sat.  I heard that may of been a good decision because I heard people burning out their sleds in the slush, running them wide open just to barely move.     Nothing like sledding in a rain storm, I guess to find them it has to be painful.

      HI ... I was out on a Lake Saturday Morning and two guys I noticed were catching nice Crappies hole hopping with electronics of coarse.  Finally after a bit from a semi far distance (far enough to not be able to see color but know it was the vertical spoon ones) I asked what they were using as they were packing up.  "Forage minnows no bait" one said.   So my question/s is?   Has any one fished Crappies with these?  I am a pug bug plastics guy here for Pan fish.  What particular colors has anyone had success with?   I am assuming the smaller spoon but I see they come with treble hook and or single hook?   Bob

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...
