Does anyone have any info on where to start to look for fox or yotes around the Detroit Lakes area? New to the area and not been hunting in a long time, would like to start again being I get laid off in the winter. And can only fish so much. Thanks for any advice.

Drive around and find some cattails and willows and get out and call.

Fill the tank & hit the county roads. The more unpopulated area's you hit the better your odds are of cut'n a track. If you have another laid off buddy he can drop you off. Put on the shoes 'n start tracking & put on the push.

That is what I did yesterday got bored I dont know to many people around here so it is a solo act. But I went out and drove around saw alot of tracks set up a few times nothing, started to head back to town and a minimum maint rd caught my eye turned down it for half a mile and boom a pile of fish guts caght my eye and a lot of tracks. Looked out int the field and to yote running across, pulled out the 22-250 and the one made a bad choice and stopped. One shot one kill, felt lucky tried second one but it woldnt stop so I missed. But it sure was fun for the first time out in about 15 years. Thanks to everyone for the help and info.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.

      Get a set of choppers to put over your nice gloves.  I throw choppers over my regular gloves when the bite gets slow.  Works like a charm.
