I'm heading home to Morris this weekend for 4A deer hunting hoping to break my 3-year buckless rut. Who else is going to be in the field this weekend?

I'll be out second weekend in the Glenwood area. Forecast looks like we have a very good chance at snow on the ground by then. Opening weekend - not so much.

Just north of Miltona...same here.

We did quite well, but others did not (it appeared). The deer were running last night (so I heard).

Saw 3 bucks on our land Saturday and got two. None were real big though.

By Norcross, Not too great two does out of 8 people. I think the #'s were down also. So it is great that the DNR has the new limits set.

Millerville-Leaf Valley

Worked hard to go 2 for 3. Dad got a 6er on Saturday would have let it pass but he hadn't had an opportunity yet and I got a doe Saturday afternoon my first opportunity also. No shots fired first weekend. Not very much sign around, of course there are 3 new trailers and 5 new houses within a mile of my stand in the last 5 years.

We hunt between Miltona and Leaf Valley.

Got 7 for 9 weekend 1. Got 4 more the next weekend (not everyone hunted, but added 3 more hunters that couldn't hunt the first weekend). We then quit, as we have enought venison.

Saw 5 deer on Hwy 14 Sunday night at 8:00 between Leaf Valley and Hwy 29. Two were nice bucks....

They land I own (bought from my father and separate from our "main" hunting area) has not done well for deer the last 3 years. This year we got 5 deer in this area...3 of them were bucks from 6 - 8 points.

This last weekend, all of our deer were shot on drives as they weren't running at all.

Just got back. Had to switch to the second season at the last minute. Our group went 2 of 6 on bucks. Nothing for me though.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      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!

      still frozen in?

      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.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
