People must be searching that area for sheds. Though it looks as if most of them are still wearing their horns

I dont see the 2 biggest deer in that photo. The photo isnt the best but I think I would be able to pick them out. I hope someone didnt poach them babies. I have never found a shed down there. Not that I go every day or anything close to that. I think the RR workers beat us to it all the time.

Some nice deer running in that crew.

It's a difficult spot to get into for shed hunting. I know of 2 guys that made it in there a few weeks back and they didn't find anything. They talked to one of the railroad guys and he said they pick them up when they find them.

I have a bigger copy if you want Steve, I shrunk it for internet purposes.

There were a couple monsters down there You'd see every day along the river just as you were coming onto the bridge coming from the west side of 35. Can you imagine if they opened that area to the city hunt!? grin.gif

Great pic Nate!

Nice Pic, It seems late for so many to still have horns.

I was down that way in Nov working and watched a heavy 8 trot into a big group of does and moved the one that smelled good out of the heard like a sheep dog. He had her cornered by some cars and would not let her go. Along came these two basket 8 and they would try and try to get close but the big guy would just lower his head and chase them away. It is kinda funny in the morning heading home from work it look like a cattle feed lot out there cause they are all lined up by the rail cars.

If you walk the woods right under the High Bridge near Birch street you will probably find sheds there in that small woods. Last fall I got a picture of a 14 pointer and 2 huge 12's all standing together real close to where the current picture was taken.

I havent worked over in Duluth too much lately so I cant say that I have seen that buck recently, but I am sure that is the one that was 14 last fall.

My office is on Garfield and I see them quite abit. And Northlander I am pretty sure I saw those big boys you are talking about sparring awhile back. It was quite a site and I wish I had a good camera with me to capture it. And also I have seen a beauty under the interstate just off Michigan St. He was literally laying down right under the bridge. It was at least a 12 pointer but it was a very unique rack. Me and the guy I work with drove by 3 times to check him out. Another time I wish I had a good camera in my work truck.

Thats probably the big one I have seen. Very unique rack. One day last month I saw that whole crew out on the ice in front of the [PoorWordUsage] plant. I wish my camera had more zoom. That would have been a great pic.

Here is a few more pictures from deer central. Out of curiosity, when was the picture in the 1st post taken? These were taken just under 3 weeks ago. No sign of any buck there that is any where close to a 14. The biggest one is a 10, but wouldnt score well because of the common base on his right antler. There is a dandy 8 in there though.

      Thank for the update and photo Dave and Diane! Cliff

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.
    • Horseshoe_Don
      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
