Gotta skip it this year. We've got seven deer already and I can't stand to look at them anymore. Good luck.

I folded and went out with some buddies and we saw some movement today. The three of us saw seven altogether and I was the only one with a shot. Unfortunetely they were standing in the brush and I was using my bow since I didn't get a muzzleloader tag. They both got busted by the ones they saw. On the other hand we were hunting fresh property that didn't get pounded over rifle season. My brother put 100 lbs of corn out by his stand over a week ago and hasn't got anything on the trail cam. He was getting at least 10 deer a day before rifle season so I'm guessing they got pushed out. BTW he's not hunting that stand anymore.

It was quite slow for my group of three. Only seen one deer for two days of hunting and thats for all three of us. A light dusting of snow covered the ground and that made finding fresh sign a little more difficult. Im not sure what to expect upcoming with the colder temps- hopefully that will get them moving a little more.

I would have preferred to just let my short reply to this post end but... Read this line again "My brother put 100 lbs of corn out by his stand over a week ago" And he did this by his stand because??? I would even speculate that the only reason that he quit hunting his bait pile is because he hasn't seen any deer on his trail cam. Even if he is not hunting there "anymore" feeding deer is just as illegal as baiting.

He did it because he had a big buck coming by before rifle season. He wanted to see if it survived the season. He is now hunting 10 miles from there and will not be hunting anywhere near that stand until next year. Feeding deer is not illegal, I don't know where you would get that idea. If it was the regs wouldn't say that you had to remove food at least ten days before hunting. Even if he wanted to put food out for no reason at all, why should it matter. I'd be more worried about people that are poaching and baiting than a sixteen year old kid just trying to get some deer pics.

If he saw a big buck why would he hunt ten miles away??

Why not just stay where he knows a big one is?? Also, I don't mind people feeding the deer in the winter to help them make it, but there are still people hunting in that area and it really makes it difficult when someone is baiting. Baiting wrecks the sport for many. I think sportsman should be smart enough to wait until after all deer hunting is over and be considerate to the people who are still hunting. Just my 2 cents

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore
