Anyone deer hunt area between Isle, Ogilvie, and Mora?

Recommended Posts

Is this area known for small bucks? Just curious, because I've been driving around w/ the spotting scope and I haven't seen a decent buck yet. Yestarday I saw 6 bucks and all were spikes!

Thanks!

I've done some hunting on private land between Mora and Oglivie for about the past 4 years. The family I hunt with has hunted the land for 40 years. No, none, nada, zilch, zero bucks on the wall for that family. Deer aplenty, likely too plentiful. Every year multiple deer come off this land. Seeing 6 spikes seems a little excessive, but actually within reason in this area.

Good Luck!

I'm up by Knife lake (north of Mora), and for the last 6 years I have yet to see a decent buck. I've got the basket rack blues! frown.gif

hunted there for the past 13 years or so and have only seen 2 big racks, didn't get either one. Shoot a lot of basket racks, spikes and some does. The racks on the ones we have shot have been weak also. Have shot 2 bucks that had racks totally gone and we thought we were shooting does.

I moved to the area in 2004 and have bowhunted since. I have seen a handful of bucks with none being "mature" bucks. The area is kind of hard to hunt with big fields and small woodlots in certain areas. My first year hunting in 1991 (Halloween Blizzard) my dad's buddy got a 18 pt. in Mille Lacs WMA. Other than that one there wasn't any big bucks taken. I am sure there are places to find big bucks in the area but it seems they are few and far between.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
