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!

      bump give ice reports if you can. just don't go on any ice to give a report, be safe.   I know my 300 acre lake in aitkin froze  over last weekend, but ice depth could vary greatly this time of year.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Anyone know of the lake is froze over? Or how much ice is on the lake if it is?
    • Schwarz04
      I’ll be out looking tomorrow... Have a spot in mind that I’m optimistic about. Which direction from downtown were you?
    • eyeguy 54
      Got the hangers today and really like them. I did have to drill a slot so they would work but easy peasy. The metal can be bent a bit to get the angle wanted. Moved the turkey fans to a different room and centered the 3 euros. I like the way it ended up.     New Age Taxidermy Head Honcho European Mounts on Amazon Smile

      The holidays are coming to the Governor’s Residence! Foresters from the Department of Natural Resources and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota harvested the official state Christmas tree Nov. 16 from the Nemadji State Forest. The tree, which is approximately 60 years old, will decorate the Governor’s Residence in St. Paul. “This year’s tree is absolutely gorgeous—tall, full, and almost perfectly shaped,” said Jean Mouelle, the DNR forester who selected this year’s tree. “It’s an impressive example of a balsam fir.” Each year, DNR staff chooses the Governor’s Christmas tree from one of Minnesota’s 59 state forests. Although the tree is always harvested on the Friday before Thanksgiving, the search for the perfect tree begins months beforehand. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. The tree also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped, and where foresters can easily remove it from the forest and load it onto a trailer. The tree will be set up at the Governor’s Residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, at 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 19, and lit Monday, Nov. 26. Information about viewing the tree can be found at www.mn.gov/admin/governors-residence/tours/schedule. Half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota each holiday season, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees provide an environmentally friendly decorating option during the holidays because they store carbon during their lifespan and can be chipped for mulch when the season is over.

      Should get the hangers today and will post info. I see that mountain Mikes has them also. Built to fit in the hole in back. The ones I ordered are for the bone skull so hopefully, dont have to send them back. Just got Marks done.  16 inch inside. Mine is 15 1/4. Not monsters but pretty neat. Marks biggest so far.

      I typically mount with a wire hidden behind the brain cavity routed through holes in the plaque to a screw behind the plaque.   Curious about this angled hanger, it tilts the nose of the skull away from the wall? Do you have a link? I like that idea, might have to rig something up when my euro is ready.

      Was around both lakes yesterday and they appear to be locked up. Shouldn't be long now.
    • eyeguy 54
      I hate when I am walking back to vehicle and they have roosted partway and I didnt know it, then they explode and I freak. LOL 
    • paceman
      Bow hunting the other day I had a flock of about 20 come in at last light to roost in a nearby tree. No way a deer was going to come in with all that racket! It was kind of odd to see them hop from tree to tree but at the same time cool to see! Graceful and quiet they were not!
