Metro Deer Hunters

Recommended Posts

What do you guys think? I am starting to think long days on the stand are pointless. Most of the deer in my area seem to only move evening, morning and night. I have seen a few bucks moving during mid day during the rut but only the spikes. I have a lot of deer using my woods and activity is low except for prime times.

What are your thoughts??

My thoughts are the same haven't seen anything on camera from 8am-4pm. I've been mainly hunting the evening because of work been seeing deer but nothing close enough for the kill shot.

I agree...and a little snow would be great sometime soon to learn a little more about their current patterns. Here's hoping.

Same here... Even on my very lightly used QDM property. The area around me gets pounded by the shotgunners and the deer respond by going mostly nocturnal. Almost zero movement during daylight hours.

My only advice is to key in on food sources and travel routes to/from bedding areas. A bit of snow would sure come in handy just to see if the trails are even being used. And remember, you can't harvest a deer from the couch!! wink.gif

Last saturday after hockey with the kids I drove out to check the camera. 11:00AM Saw a buck standing right in the driveway which is used as a deer trail. Had my 6 year old and she was like dad look at that guy! I said "yeah and my bow is in the back of the truck". Her next words were the highlight of the week. "Go get it and put an arrow in him!" Precious little girl!

The camera has nothing but nocturnal deer except one nice doe. I am still hoping to get out on the weekends since after work it is getting dark too soon.

Late season bow hunting can be tough and frustrating.

Probably why I took up coaching hockey!

Slow J., gotta love it when kids respond to hunting like that. My Mom asked the young son of a friend if the Easter Bunny was coming to his house. He said "Yeah, we're gonna kill him and eat him huh dad?"

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
