State Record ?

Recommended Posts

Musky Buck

I don't like to bring up scoring bucks but I keep getting an email from a friend and they found a typical buck dead during rifle season and it scored 205. What is our typical record by archery,rifle,musket ? I would post the pic., but the person holding it I wouldn't want to throw that all over the net. I don't think he'd appreciate it and without his permission I wouldn't do it. Just curious.

Ok, might take some doing, I could e-mail it to you, just don't post until I get an Ok which might be tough to do, maybe not. I know the guy holding it, actually played baseball with him for years, but lost touch since retirement. They found it dead and couldn't tell if it had been poached or an arrow or what caused the death, I would say it is every bit what the Breen buck was. What is crazy is if it truly scored 205, 4 miles from where it was found came the 2005 state record by musket, non-typical however, and I can't get a bite on selling my land in that area, is there a source on here for selling land, I would think there is. Need your e-mail address.

Sorry Dave, should try to get permission first my bad, I just wanted to know what the typical record is because I thought it was more than 205. My uncle told me it was scored at 205 but was it really. It has a huge rack. I actually figured most people have seen it already. BigLake has seen it, so it's out there, I just owe the guy holding it some privacy. Would love to post it, but maybe someone on here knows him better than myself and could post it with his permission, I would have no problem e-mailing it to individuals, just don't want to be the reason he is getting maybe even calls or bothered by people. So 202 is the record, thanks, now I know that this deer had a shot possibly. There is a running rumor around that an archery hunter wounded it and never found it, but who knows.

B Amish is correct.

I think I posted it in fact. Got it from someone to post up.

I'll believe the story when its in print somewhere with some solid info behind it.

Seems to be another case like the other hundred record bucks sent around the internet that never surface again.

i was at a party with some friends a few months ago and got to see it. i'd say close to 200" or better. the guy showing it off said it was 202 or something like that. thing had like 28" beams, HUGE! however, the person showing it wasn't the guy holding it in the prior picture, but i'm sure it was the same woodpile!

Hate to be naysayer, and without some point of reference I could be off a little, but as an official scorer for 20 years, no way that nets over 200". Big buck though and I'd love to see an official score.

i don't think the '205' is a net score. i'm guessing it's gross.

I dont think it grosses 205.

If it was truly a state record potential, I'd sure think we would have seen something about it in some publication by now.

Or the guy is Mitch Rampola's cousin, and isnt going to ever officially score it or display it. laugh

That's what I mean, lots of people throwing numbers around, it is quite a specimen. Knowing the guy holding it, I don't doubt the unfortunate truth about the deer. I guess I questioned my uncle on this 205 thing and that's why I wanted to find out what the state record was so if I saw official verification I'd know where that buck stood just for my own curiosity. Wish the guy holding it would've had the chance to harvest it.

      Officials from the Department of Natural Resources and Dominium, an affordable housing development and management company, today signed a re-development agreement that will create an anticipated 176 units of affordable housing in the historic buildings at the Fort Snelling Upper Post, near the Fort Snelling Golf Course and Historic Fort Snelling.  Expected to open in 2021, the Upper Post Flats will give housing preference to veterans and their families. “This is an outstanding example of a public-private partnership with important benefits for Minnesotans,” said Gov. Mark Dayton. “It comes at a time when there is a great need for affordable housing.” A report by the Governor’s Task Force on Housing, published in August, called for the creation of 300,000 new affordable housing units by 2030. Built in the late 1800s, the 26 buildings at the Upper Post have been managed by the DNR Parks and Trails Division since 1971, when the property was transferred as part of the Federal Lands to Parks Program. The site was the point of departure for thousands of Minnesota soldiers during the Spanish American War, World War I, and World War II. It was the site of the Japanese language school for the entire U.S. military from 1944 to 1946. ”The Fort Snelling Upper Post was once regarded as one of the most endangered historic sites in the nation, but today we are taking a significant step toward preserving it for future generations,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “The DNR is pleased to be working with Dominium on this redevelopment project, and we can hardly wait to see these beautiful old buildings occupied again after standing empty for so long.” The approximately $100 million project will be financed through a combination of Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, Federal and State Historic Tax Credits, tax exempt bonds and other sources. “We are very appreciative of Gov. Dayton, Commissioner Landwehr, and the other members of the State Executive Council for recognizing the value of this project and supporting it,” said Paul Sween, managing partner for Dominium.  “We have successfully transformed the Schmidt Brewery on West Seventh Street in St. Paul, the Pillsbury A-Mill in Minneapolis, and other historic landmarks, and we look forward to doing the same at the Upper Post.” Next steps will include finalizing the design and seeking approval from the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office. Dominium expects to close on financing by late summer or early fall 2019. Under the agreement, the state of Minnesota retains ownership of the site, but all management and operation of the buildings and site amenities will be Dominium’s responsibility.

      I used my scheels case last weekend 2 days in a row. I did not go easy on it. It got thrown around on the ice, I threw it in the truck and I stood on it while on the ice. My buddy has the otter case and the durability and construction are similar. So far it was a good investment and no worry’s about broken rods.
    • eyeguy 54
      this will be the third winter with my red ones. Still like new. The eye case hardly gets used but the panfish case sees the ice a lot.     
    • rundrave
      can any of you guys with the hard side cases speak to the durability of the plastics on these units in bitter cold weather? do these cases hold up to abuse or do they get fragile and break?

      With the ice reports all over the internet , conditions different at every access. I would say its best to check reports on the access you are planning on using.  Most if not all the phone calls about ice conditions and fishing reports can be found on social media . We still have plenty of openings for fish house rentals . I be leave Hillmens also has plenty of rentals this season still open , Including the behemoth double decker that sleeps 10 to 12. There phone number is 218 647 8504    We use Hillmens access during the ice season, I talked to Buddy  Hillmen this morning . He will be allowing  Wheelers/sleds out up to 2 miles. He also said to mention to drive slow and use extreme caution. as there is quite a bit of rough ice. With  another lite snow and breeze the rough broken ice will catch snow and may be harder to see.  Beacon Harbor is also allowing wheelers and sleds I be leave. They did have a fishing report  on there facebook page.   Westwind the premier resort here on upper red lake is well organized and also ready to go.  There were just a handful of portables on the lake yesterday.  I think I saw a couple out of beacon harbor, 2 out of hillmens and 4 or 5 out of westwind.  I did get out again last night deer hunting. I also had a shot. I missed. I'm shooting a recurve with no sites . I've taken a deer with a shotgun. 20 gauge, a rifle 30 30, a compound bow. So I went back to the recurve a few years ago. Man do I have the stories of all the misses over the years. It seems with a bow something always goes wrong. I can say that I think hunting with a bow makes you a much better hunter as you have to plan for shots under 30 yards.  2 years ago I was set up just off a snowmobile trail. If a deer walked by me it would be a 15 to 20 yard shot.  A small buck appeared to my left. He was coming right down the trail. I stood up. Grabbed my bow  as  I watched him  through the corner of my eyes. I only sit about 5 feet off the ground, with no cover to speak of my plan was to let him walk by, I would take the shot just after he passed. As he slowly passed by I took one step to turn as I drew back . The seat tipped down and spooked him. Off he went.  Standing there reviewing what happen I thought?  Man should I have pulled back while he was more in front of me. I thought would he of seen me move. I reenacted  what happen pulling my arrow back , aiming right in front of me again, thinking would he of seen me make that move. I repeated this about 5 times. I then hung up my bow and set down. Not long after I here a ruckus  to my right. I stand up ,look down the trail ,here comes a nice 10 pointer. Full speed.! He is going to run right where I was practicing aiming. I pull back and let her fly. My arrow wacks him right in the rib, he never even flinches or slows down. I watch him run down the trail with my arrow sticking in the side of him as he turns the corner.  I get down ,  right where I hit him there"s deer hair all over,  I get to where he jumped a fallen tree , more hair, I get to where he turned the corner and there' s my arrow bent in half with no broadhead. We never found a drop of blood. Bob harvested the same deer 4 days later. I found a small hole in his hide directly on a rib bone about the size of a pencil eraser.  Now back to last night. All of a sudden I here what I think is a deer running through the woods. I grab my bow, about 3 minutes later here comes a doe walking right where I expect,  She's going with the wind. She is going to walk right where I have shot a  flu flu arrow every night I've set in that spot.  I always pick a spot and fling a arrow before I get down. She had no clue I was there, I pulled back as she stepped out and my glove is right in my sight line. It throws my concentration off, I ended up panicking and flinging my arrow rather then resetting . I'm glad I missed , another lesson is put in the books. Take off glove? Different glove? Hunt when its warmer so I do not need gloves, The list goes on and on. Its the thrill of the hunt.    Well everyone have a happy thanksgiving  cookie

      Now is the time to talk with kids about the dangers of ice. Ice thickness varies greatly on lakes, ponds and rivers throughout the state. Some water bodies have none, while others have several inches, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  “Ice, especially early ice with snow cover, is extremely deceptive because you can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” said DNR Conservation Officer Adam Block. “Parents need to teach their kids that ice is never 100 percent safe. If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward newly forming ice for entertainment. “In addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket or float coat,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines
      No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). Children should never be unsupervised around ice. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. Check ice thickness at regular intervals – conditions can change quickly. Before heading out, inquire about conditions and known hazards with local experts. Avoid channels and rivers. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
