Deer Season...Part III

Recommended Posts

JustinG

Well, that is all for me folks!

Saw a few deer on the way to the stand on Saturday AM. It was way too dark, so I just kept a walking. Didn't see anything the rest of the day. It sure was windy and miserable sitting yesterday. Snow blowing down my neck and I just got cold! Today I headed out and sat in the "camper of doom". Made a pot of coffee, spread out a little bit, and took a nice nap basking next to the furnace! grin.gif Well, a guy has to relax every now and then, right? Needless to say, didn't really see much today except kicking one deer up on the way out to get my portable stand out of the woods. All in all, a good season for me-The deer were safe for this year grin.gif. I know there is one more weekend left, but 2 weekends of deer hunting has always been enough for me. Got to get the ice fishing gear ready now! How did everybody else do this weekend?

I didn't even go out this weekend. Got my buck last Thursday, and when I was running errands Friday the town was so full of orange jackets I figured the woods would be as full of hunters as deer, especially with the rut not ramped up yet on opener weekend.

I'll probably hunt a couple days this week to try to fill my antlerless tag. Now that I'm working on my own schedule, I'd much rather avoid all that company in the weekend woods.

Heading back up north on wednesday for four days of hunting in paradise. Looking to harvest a decent buck, but I wouldn't complain about another doe either. Good luck in this last week boys!!!

Justin, there's still part IV, V, VI... grin.gif Too bad you didn't fill a tag but it sounds like you enjoyed the season anyway. We'll have some vennie in January.

Steve, congrats! smile.gif Its always good to get one tagged when you crave that meat. I know a little doe spot.... Well, you know the rest. Good luck, it sounds like several people have places for you to go.

We have my doe and a buck that a friend gave me from archery season. Usually two is enough for our house but we've been getting more creative with preparing it. The buck is almost crumbs already. Looking for #2 myself still.

Hey Wanderer,

I heard you say you hunt near Emily huh? Not too far from my neck of the woods. Didn't happen to stumble in to The Bungelow did ya? Wrecked my pickup one year driving there from hunting the Old Grade! Must have been a sign.

Pickle,

Ha, hope nobody got hurt!

A couple of guys from the party hunt the old grade. I might even find myself there with whats left of the group this weekend.

Our friends live up 136(?) by Eagle Lake. This is the first year I've hunted with them in MN, so I don't know that area too well. I'm sure they know the Bungelow though!

I grew up hunting and fishing the Pine River area so I'm more familiar with west of the Whitefish. Not the thickest deer herd but I do love those woods and lakes. Well, almost any woods and lakes I guess. smirk.gif

Ah, I see Nisswa. I ran too low on oil on 371 one night. The Sherrif picked me up and took me to the bar. Thats where we found the owner of the auto parts store. We all went over to the store to ring up a few quarts, then he took me back to my car. I was maybe 17 at the time.

Nisswa. Good times. grin.gif

How's your season been?

This is the first year I haven't deer hunted since I was a kid. I've been busy with some projects at the place in Ely. If you are ever in the Nisswa area give me a hollar,,, maybe we can drag some minnows for walleyes,,, been a great year out there on Gull! smile.gif

Gull is a neat lake. I fished a State tourney there once, when I did that sort of thing.

I've been doing all my summer fishing in Ely lately. Can't get enough of that area. I'd have to say you are lucky being able to live in the Nisswa area and have a place in Ely too!

Email sent. Yeah Gull is dandy. The fall bite the last few years is crazy. Just went out with a buddy for the last time this year on Sunday. Keep in touch!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!
