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.

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!
    • Tom Sawyer
      Nice fish!
    • Better Than Working!
      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
