question for -HARVEY LEE-

I was just reading the baiting deer thread in the HUNTING section, someone said they wouldnt hunt near a mineral lick; period. I know its legal here in MN, so I have two 25lb blocks about 30yds from one another. I put them out mid summer. Its my good spot from last year too. Why wouldnt someone want to hunt next to them? I heared that deer dont use minerals as much in the fall, but it is still in the middle of the main route they take to get to there grazing spot. Is this going to hinder me this weekend?

The mineral block wont hinder you at all. Some hunters just choose not to hunt by mineral blocks or any spot that did have some other type bait they were using to attract deer. Some deer hunters believe that it is unethical to hunt by any type bait and its not fair chase.

As long as you are not breaking the law you can do whatever you feel is right. Its a personal issue for each. In North Dakota where I deer hunt it is legal to bait and some do and some choose not too,again its a hunters choice.

I hope this helps and answers your question.

Ditto what HL said. Just wanted to respond since I made that post. I choose not to hunt near the mineral lick mainly because I've had my camera up there all year and visited it once a week leaving my scent all around. I just hunt a ways down the trail from it. It's a personal theory and not one that is scientific by any means.

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.
