My Dad shot a mulie about 20 years ago in Douglas County (middle of MN). His was dragging a snar around one leg and was very infected. They had the DNR out to look at it as well.

NoWiser.... congrats on your buck. It must feel great to do that much homework and have it pay off. The question I have is "Did you have the area to yourself?" Everytime I think I have found a small area to call "home" when it gets light, I see orange.

Browning-gold... congrats to your gf on a great buck. If her success continues of a bigger buck each year, you should have a blast hunting with her!

Coach,

I hunted with my dad and a good friend of mine. We had a huge section of woods completely to ourselves. Did not see another hunter, or hear any shots within at least 3/4 mile of us Friday - Monday. I feel like I finally found an area I can call "home". Nice to hunt deer that are doing their own thing, and not being chased.

Not the greatest picture, but its the best I could manage, and it captures the moment pretty well, I think.

I like the picture, its cool! Nice job on finding that place and putting the work into it.

I like how you positioned the buck so you were looking at the good end of the deer

I think that positioning makes the shot great, too. I'm just guessing . . . could have been an issue of load distribution in the canoe that put the deer in the position it's in. smile

no kidding. I've been hunting for 7 years now and I have yet to harvest a worthy buck ( i say worthy b/c I shot a unicorn buck that only had one antler about 6 in. long and as skinny as a pencil. I thought it was a big doe and decided to shoot. When I got out of my stand I was a bit suprised when I went in for the gut job!!). Tell her congrats and hopefully we have another woman hunter in the woods.

Musky Buck

Great to see the genuine happiness in her face, she's hooked for good now and that's a good thing !Not criticizing the canoe guy, I know it was hot and u shouldn't get shot at but I'd have a blaze orange coat on or at least hung high or very visual in the canoe, in my area I'd feel a bit afraid even with the orange hat on. Great buck and photo, my favorite for sure thus far posted ! smile

He's wearing his blaze vest under the life jacket. Probably could have put it over top, but he at least had it on. In some areas, I am sure he would be fine. In fact, his post talks about not seeing other hunters.

I agree, one of the coolest pics so far.

Schwanny, congrats to your niece.

Thanks for the compliments! Musky is right, I should have had more orange on. I never even thought about it when I put my life jacket on, apparantly my fear of drowning outweighed my fear of getting shot! Next time I'll be sure to throw an oversized hooded sweathshirt over everything.

Trigger, congrats on both your and your dad's bucks. They both are beautiful.

Congrats to everyone who posted a picture. There isn't a deer on here that isn't a trophy! Lets keep them coming!

I passed on a 6 pointer about 8am on Sunday and 45 minutes later this guy came in chasing a doe.

SE Minnesota shotgun. Mossberg 930. Winchester 2 3/4 Sabot. 1 shot and he dropped 20 yards from where he was hit.

My first Minnesota buck!

      As expected, the bite is about as slow as its going to be all winter right now based on these reports.  Minnows are getting hard to find, the water is bitterly cold, fish metabolism has slowed way down, and there's peak activity/noise on the ice above.  With the season ending in 6 days, its time to pack it up and start preparing for open water season in May.

      What's the plan after the deer farms are gone?  I'm all for ganging up on a minority and squashing their rights, but we've still got a real problem to deal with.

      Soon as I can get my car in the yard.  I don't have water though, so temps don't matter.  Even if it's cold and sloppy yet, I can still hang out inside and grill outside.

      Depends on the year and since we are on an island, it really depends on ice and/or when the dock company can drop our dock. Usually early May

      I’m really hoping to make it up there on Saturday. Might try a couple different spots, pending success rate.

      Also depends on if your married or not, or want to stay that way! 😄  At my buddies old place since he had an out house we would just bring water and start using it when we could get the heat up with a fire place and a few elc, heaters as to not die. Then we were good! 😉

      Hello everyone,    I know I'm new to this website, but I've been fishing for a while now. A few years ago I picked up a Black Betty 6061 for ice fishing and I bent the handle trying to put it into a Frabil hard case on an exceptionally cold day (dumb me). I wrote a few emails to 13 Fishing/called 5 times and explained the situation and they told me I would have to pay for my parts. I said that was fine because it was my fault (even though I thought the handle should be a little sturdier).   Flash forward a 2 weeks later and I have my new handle. I took the old handle off and put the new one on, but the retaining screw that holds the washer for the nut in place wouldn't fit. The new handle 13 Fishing sent to me has a screw hole tapped too small. I called 13 and they were not aware of a screw size change. I asked them to send me a screw that would fit the handle and they said okay. 2 Weeks later, no screw. I called them again and explained that I had been over a month without this reel operational and no one had sent anything. I told them that I had a fishing trip coming up in the next two days and they could either overnight the screw to me or send it to the location I was going to be fishing. They said they would send it and it didn't come before the trip, nor did it come after the trip I just came back from.    They either sent me the wrong handle that doesn't fit my old BB, or they changed the dimensions of their design. I'm just trying to get my reel operational and it seems like such an easy thing. I'm probably going to go down to the store and just grab a small screw that will fit, but it seemed too easy for 13 Fishing to send me the part. How should I deal with 13 Fishing now? Has anyone else dealt with this issue before? I really liked 13 Fishing's gear, but if this is what happens when something goes wrong, I may end up turning elsewhere for the $$.

      I always use a dead stick next to a jigging hole.  The water is clear so you can get pretty high off the bottom to bring them in and then lower it to them.  Red hook on the dead stick during the day and anything glow after dark if you want but I use pink.  I usually use fat heads or rainbow with good success.  My go to is a pink and blue rattle spoon or red.  Just off of structure during the day with a nice easy move of 15 feet or so to the top of the structure morning or night.

      Now it sounds like they’re shooting for October. Won’t be possible by fishing opener
