Not that I know of. I got 1 so we can start counting from there, and plan on a few more for muzzleloader.

lol, I know we took 3 in 184, I am hoping the master of numbers Mr. Lou will be able to shed some light on the subject.

He's pretty unreliable. Here's the data to date. There's still a few paper tags out there that haven't been entered so it may climb 5% of so, depending on area.

Did that meet expectations or hopes?

I think participation was really good (like 24K people or so). Meeting expectations will be answering the question of whether or not EA hunters killed an extra deer. The theory is adding deer to the regular season bag (e.g., 2 vs. 5) has little effect on overall harvest but adding another opportunity early may have an effect. Preliminary results show that to be true but I have to wait until the end of the deer season to figure it all out.

I haven't seen it yet but I heard a buddy of mine sent it in. I guess after 16 consecutive antlerless deer, a guy is entitled to one buck!

And with all the work you do on our deer herd, here's hoping you get many more!

Good Luck!

p.s. you can't really be working for the DNR... your hair isn't gray yet! and it's not pulled out! grin.gif All you have to do is figure out how the state can produce 400-500,000 trophy bucks a year to keep all us deer hunters happy and you got it made! grin.gif

I'm one of those people who only sleeps 5-6 hours a night. Sleeping in for me is 5am.

When I worked out West, I was whining to a colleague about the Western deer hunter (you know the type: c'mon son, let's go gas up the treestand). I told my buddy that if the Fish and Game could breed a variety of deer that woke up at 10:30 am, was deaf, ate nothing but roadside vegetation, grew 30" antlers in 1 year, and had all its vitals in its guts we'd be heroes.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      59 crossing Daisy Bay Friday night. 67 in Big Bay this afternoon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.
