Vacation for rut '07

Recommended Posts

Cooter

I don't know and am not a big fan of the moon theory so I'm gonna go with the first week in Nov for some vacation time. Last year I spread it out - a Tues and Thurs, then with weekends off the following week Mon and Wed....something like that. I didn't see much rut activity, had some very warm days for early Nov. So the question is, what dates are your hopes high for as far as catching that old monster chasing girls around during shooting hours?

For me in North Dakota, the past 10 years seem to start around the 6-8 of November and really crank up about the 12th. Of course this will change with any hot heat rolling in.

I agree with nightcrawler right around the 10th give or take a couple of days from year to year.

last year i seen some small bucks checking out the does on opener, but the does wanted nothing to do with them. Now on second weekend i watched a few bucks chasing does. So i agree the rut seems to be around the 10th-15th. either way i am hunting both weekends in MN and opener in WI. So i will just have to see what happens.

The full moon in October is supposed to be the 27th and the theory is 7-10 days after that they will be in full chase mode. I am taking the 3rd thru the 10th off in hopes of seeing this action for a week. Sure hope it works out.

When you mention full moon in october Tim, it's suppose to be about chasing walleyes on mille lacs, not deer. grin.gif

I have seen it start to heat up on halloween some years, so I don't take the chance of missing that day. Thats when I notice the big fellers start to show themselves. I start my vacation the 27th of Oct. and run to the 18th of Nov. I save all my vacation for bowhunting.

      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.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      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.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
