What did I do wrong?

Recommended Posts


I am a novice at predator hunting but went out and gave it a try tonight.

I got a Johnny Stewart digital. The first set up was up in the hay mow of a barn overlooking a pretty open 30. I ran through 3 calls on the box and used a dying rabbit mouth call. The second set was about 1/4 mile from the first and we set up in a snowfence blind and called. Very shortly after I called the first time 2 trail cameras about 75-100 yards east went off and I thought I had something moving fast our way. I called 3-4 more times over 15 minutes or so and nothing showed up.

Did I call too much, too many varieties of calls?

Over the past couple of weeks 2 large coyotes and a red fox have shown up on the cameras so I know something is in the neighborhood.

We had a good time but it would be nice to know a bit more about it. Books and magazines and FM can only get you so far.

Thanks for anything you can point out.

i don't know what you did so called wrong but given the info what i may have done would be, since the cameras tipped you off, and lets assume one is responding and closing in at 75-100yds, use your eyes and call more subtle,squeak or be silent,let him show himself out of his curiosity. they're all learning experiences. he also could have winded you.

Maybe you didn't do anything wrong, maybe the camera flash spooked them.

      Mark B!!!  Great to hear one of your reports again. I sure miss them.  Take care and I'm looking forward to hearing about your trip in Sept.

      I know it’s a little ways out but will be my first time going to lake vermilion August 7-10 out of Norwegian bay. Just wondering how the bass fishing is and will be around that time if anyone knows

      Thanks for the information! Are you talking about south walnut by the dam and just north of there where the other river meets the lake? I’d assume it’s more of a spring spot when the waters a little higher and the walleyes are running?

      It's a shallow lake with a channel that runs through it. You will be better off with a canoe or kayak to fish it.   The walleyes tend to congregate where the channel runs close to shore. You can also fish the holes in the blue earth river for them. A few flatties hang there too.

      Whatya got?  If it’s for free it’s for me. 😁
    • Duckhunter1941
      I was wondering if anyone has ever fished walnut or south walnut lake/ the blue earth river area? I see the dnr stocks walleye about every other year but I never hear of anyone fishing it
