Anyone seeing any deer in the area?

Recommended Posts

Just curious to see how people were doing with the bowhunting in the area so far this year. I've been out twice so far and the first trip was just a nice long quiet sit in the woods. The second trip I saw an 8 and a 3 point but no does untill I was driving up my driveway! Just curious to see if the deer are moving much. Good luck out there!

Saw 2 does last night, but not a lot of activity. Some of the beans in the area have been picked, but with the rain it's going to be awhile before the rest come out.

I also saw 2 does the other night and nothing the following night. It is much slower for me than in years past, I am not sure what is up - maybe the weather? I hunt the FL/Wyoming area and normally (other years) see deer in my area every night. Hopefully they start to move a bit more. I have seen a nice one on my trail camera, but it is always just after midnight. Best wishes to all!

I think this next week with the night time temps getting into the thirties things should get moving.

Yep, all around the area. Saw a nice 10 Friday at dark made a rub and opened a scrape but was too far away to get a shot. Saw a spike Saturday that ended up bedding at the base of my tree for almost two hours. One deer Sat night but couldn't tell if it was a buck or doe as it was too far out in the brush and didn't hunt yesterday evening. I'm hoping they kick into gear this week!

Nice deer!!! Last week the deer seemed to be moving more in my area. I saw a few smaller bucks sparring, still waiting for the one I want.

Tunrevir (or anyone else),

With temps expected to reach the 60's today, I need to get my deer in to get processed still today. Do you recommend anyone around FL?

I forgot to add that the bucks were really moving in the mornings this weekend. I saw two bucks on Saturday morning, and two bucks on Sunday.

I forgot to add that the bucks were really moving with the cool morning temps this past weekend. I saw two bucks on Saturday morning between 8:30 - 9:30, and two bucks on Sunday but earlier.

so haaad...I just emailed tunrevir a phone number for a place to process deer...I asked him to forward the number onto you (I'd post it here but I'm not sure on the forum rules). The person does a good job and is reasonably priced. Just north of North Shore Trail on Heath Ave. Congratulations on the deer, good work!

I know the place and would recommend it as well. I'm pretty sure they don't do sausage or jerky, though, so if that's something you wanted you'll have to bring your trimmings somewhere else.

Sniper, wolf and tunrevir, thanks for the info. I ended up taking a little time off of work and cut it up myself. I'll still need someone to bring my trimmings to, so thanks again for the input.

Good deal so haaad...G.C. does a good job on the deer. Last year I dropped off a deer Sunday night of gun opener weekend...I got a call Tuesday morning saying it was ready to pick up.

Great job on the buck! Good luck when you get out next.

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.
    • kelly-p
      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      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. 
    • pikeandchester
      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!
    • leech~~
      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      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.
