Outdoor Minnesota Deer Photo's

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

Hopefully get the antlers back from the taxidermist tomorrow so we can score them. Should be 150+

My first deer with a muzzle loader. Saw 5 deer in less then an hour including a decent 8 point that hung around awhile.

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.

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!

Great deer everybody.

Here is my buck. I already filled my doe tag during archery, so with a freezer full of meat and no job, I had all season to look for a big boy. He had other ideas and I was done in 25 minutes...o well!

I saw this deer the night before opener and knew he was a good 10. He was chasing a doe opening morning and they ran smack into another guy from my camp who was walking out to his stand late. His presence turned them around back into the woodlot I was hunting, and came crashing through at 6:55 am. I bleated, he stopped, and dropped him where he stood with a double lung shot.

10 point(one broken tine but still scorable), 17" inside spread, 168 lbs field dressed. 60 yard shot, .270 WSM. Itasca County, Nov 7.

FYI I stripped off some of my orange for the pic/drag.

Good Luck to those still hunting!

Not what I envisoned taking, but im content with him. 10 points, 20 inch inside spread and field dressed at 218 lbs. nice mass throughout, just not a lot of length on him.

great googly moogly, look at the size of that head and neck Shedfreak, care to point to the ones that were bigger than this one? Sheesh......(nice buck, awesome actually)

he had a 30 inch neck actually. I would say I saw 4 or 5 bigger , and they were all 8 points!! I missed the biggest one, woulda scored around 160, and I hit and lost a 140 inch 8 as well. I also had a 130 inch 8 point with a good drop tine at 35 yards 3 days before i shot this one, but couldnt get a shot! he was a fighter though, ripped ear, gashes on the back of his neck in a few places, 2 tine holes on his face, and an old busted up ankle!!! They are guessing 5 years old or more.

I am guessing you are about 6' tall, and you like small next to that thing. His head (without the head gear) is massive

Shed, those are darn nice deer. As we've seen these last several years, they can get to be big-time bruisers cruising around the city of Duluth and Hermantown and eating people's gardens.

Congrats on another most excellent animal!

BC, I was born green and gold and that's just the way it is. smilesmile

I took my cousin to my stand last night where I saw the big . He saw one small doe all week. I sent him to my stand and walked over to my other one about 1/4 mile a way on the other side of the alfalfa field. Right away a decent buck ran across the field. I think it smelled my cousing and took off. I was party hunting and I told him that I was only going to use his tag if it was the big guy that I saw last week, so I passed on the other buck, it wasn't the big guy. At dusk, I saw a big bodied deer heading tawards him, a minute later, I heard three shots. The deer died standing under his stand. He was the big dog I had been chasing this falls. He never hunts this area and I thought I would be nice and take him with me where I bow hunt.

Trigger you are the man for that. It takes a big person to allow someone to hunt there area. I commend you on that.

To all that shot buck GREAT JOB. I love the kid pic's and all the smiling faces.

I have been out slug hunting for a total of 6 hours. I have passed on 7 does (no permit) and two small bucks. I look at it this way, I want meat but I am going to SD for the late season MZ hunt and can get two does there so I am only going to shoot a big one when I do go out but I have been working in the field now and might not even make it out again. But there is always next year. (even though it is killing me not to go out!!!)

Good job everyone.

Froggy

      Made it back to Winnie on our second attempt.  We left yesterday afternoon and the truck broke.  The fan shucked a blade through the radiator for some reason!   With help we got the truck to the shop and our fish house home by around 7.  Cleaned out the work truck early this morning and headed back up.  Caught em good the first hour or so but then real tight lipped.  Perch, walleye and tullibee are on the ice.  Missed two flags for pike.  Curious how tonight will be.  Nap time now to prep for the rush! 🤣

      A little long winded but I'm excited to share. Got out on Tonka 4 times this week. Yes, I'm retired. 😀 Bought the Milwaukee 2803-33 and put it on a 6" lazer hand auger that I've had for 20 years but have never used it since I have a gasser too. Very impressed by that set up. Also gave the LiveScope a good work out. Monday afternoon found the sunfish and crappie suspended over a 40-foot hole. Saw fish with the LiveScope with the first set of holes and drilled a few more to get on top of them. Kept 3 of each for fish sandwiches. Tuesday afternoon in the same hole but near the ridge that connects shore to an offshore reef. Mostly sunfish there but a few crappie too. All released. Yesterday started an hour before sunrise and fished a small 12 foot-hole that I started fishing around 1970. Caught sunfish, crappies, largemouth and lost an ~8# carp at the bottom of the hole. Had it played out and laying sideways at the bottom of my 6" hole. Trying to get it started up the hole and my 4# test line broke with a new 4 mm tungsten glow wonder bread jig in its lip. Looked at the flasher and they was another fish. Grabbed the other rod with a 1/16 oz jointed pinhead minnow on it and fired it down the hole to be immediately consumed by a 12" crappie. All fish released. This morning fished the small hole again at the same time. Sunfish and crappies. Largest crappie was 11 7/8. No sunfish over 7". Just drilled 3 holes in the spot with the most fish from yesterday. Two for fishing, one for the LiveScope and set the house up. It's fun seeing fish creeping in from 8 feet away and you can definitely tell the different sizes of fish on the LiveScope. Reminisced on some of the times I've fished this hole over the years with friends and family.

      Son and I decided one last trip before ice melt on Rush. Lots of slush at access, probably unpassable by next weekend with 40 to 50 deg. temps next week. 25" ice with 4" packed snow on fishing area. No hot spot just area with 30 so wheel/skid shacks. Drilled a few around orange marker found nothing, flasher lit up at blue marker suspended 15 to 28 ft. 36 FOW. Bite non existing put everything down, colors, plastic, variety. Got 3 at 9 to 11 inch. Talked to several anglers, same results. Love the floor I built for the flip no water/slush everything dry.

      Most likely heading out to Blue later this afternoon.

      Thanks Oohfer, I did meet with DBS out of Duluth for their helical piers. Excellent solution, however rather pricey ($25K) and not sure how we would hide or make more pleasant looking as they would need to tie directly to the cabin, sort of "stilt-like" looking. We are going to get a couple more quotes on simply (not the best term probably) have new footings put in all the way to the ledge rock.    Thanks again, this forum is VERY helpful. Lots of good information on the Lake Vermilion owners Facebook page too!   Andy
    • Oohfersuure
      I would explore helical footings.  Why not? Below is a company I’ve worked with. Not sure if they work up north or if they know someone that does? They are knowledgeable, a phone call should do er’ and see what you can find out. Good luck!   https://goliathtechmn.com/

      ice is still looking good, have roughly 24inces give or take a little. Cats have been kinda tough to find in any real numbers. I have done a bit of scouting this week.  I think I might have an area pinned down that has activity... Will do a bit more scouting this weekend and into next week.   Will Have  The location posted by Mid week for sure.  Will also keep monitoring ice conditions.

      Well, might as well add some details to Royce's pics...lol With the longer days and warming weather pattern this week.  We have started to see more quality fish moving shallow to take advantage of the food and cover skinny water provides. Panfish start to move out from the basins during late winter to feed on the insects that become more active as the days get longer and warmer. There is also more oxygen available due to the weeds starting to grow again.     We have been finding more quality fish showing up in the 8-12 ft areas close to the greenest thickest weed available.  Insect type baits  like the p3 spug, the chigger fry and mayfly rigged on 3-4mm tungsten jigs have been working best.
