So I took a very large doe last night and I told my son he could hunt my box stand just behind our house as I'm done for the year. So what does he do but shoot this big guy around 7:30 this morning with a TC Hawkens 50cal muzzle loader. The deer went just 30 yards and it was over. I was still in bed when I heard the shot. He owes me big time now.

After not seeing a deer all weekend with my 11 year old daughter I talked mom into letting her skip school Tuesday and she shot this 10pt. It came in while I was rattling and she shot it at 60 yards with a .243 and a 85g Barnes triple shock. He went 30 yards. She was just a little excited.

Took a four day weekend to try and kill a deer and accomplished that on Saturday at before 8am.

I had him on camera all summer and wanted to get him with my bow since he's not real big, just a decent 2.5 yr old.

image_zps626230c7.jpg

This is where I found him. Lung shot with the shotgun, he went around 100 yds. He was going back to the thick stuff. This is a 6 ac woods in the middle of a section. No other woods. About 1/3 of it is thick bedding like this.

Kids want him on the wall so on Sunday, I took that deer to the taxi and picked up my 2013 WI rifle buck.

I shot this 10 pointer in area 110 on Saturday at about 8am. The story behind it makes the pictures even better. I was sitting in my stand in the middle of the woods with a clearing about 20 yards away. I heard a snap and I look across the clearing to see a doe moving at a pretty good rate. I grab my gun and stand up to get ready just in case she brought a buck with her. I look behind her and I see another deer but couldn't tell what it was. All of a sudden it steps into the clearing and I see that it is this buck. After watching him walk around at about 65 yards away he finally steps into one of my shooting lanes. I raise my gun, find him in the scope, and pull the trigger. 'CLICK' My gun doesn't go off. My heart sank as he walks into a thicket on the other side of the clearing. I thought to myself that I just missed an opportunity on the biggest deer of my life. I ejected the cartridge, thinking that maybe it was a bad round. As I watched him walk into the thicket, desperation mode kicked in and I started to give him some estrus bleats and a few grunts. After about 30 seconds I finally catch his movement again as he pops is head into the clearing and heads my direction. He walks straight to me and turns broadside at about 20 yards. I got my scope on him for the second time. I pulled the trigger hoping this time he doesn't slip away and... 'Click' "AGAIN!!" At this point I was just sick. He heard the click and got nervous and started to trot away. He didn't know what the noise was and where it came from but knew something was up. I quickly pulled the bolt back a bit and slammed it forward and got on him for a third time. I had to aim a little bit forward as he was moving pretty quick and at about 35 yards I pulled the trigger again. 'Bang' "FINALLY!!" The gun finally goes off and he drops in his tracks with a shot to the neck. I didn't mean to shoot him in the neck as I was aiming right behind his front shoulder and must have flinched in surprise as the gun went off. All I cared about was that he lay dead at 35 yards. Like the saying goes, "Third time is the charm." I was so excited to fill my tag on a buck that is my biggest to date. It was a wonderful morning in the woods and shooting a deer just adds to it. He was rutting pretty hard when I first seen him. Later that day my dad filled his tag on a decent 8 that also was chasing does on a field edge. We end up with two nice bucks for 4 people. Not a bad first weekend of deer camp. Congrats to everybody on all the nice deer. Keep posting pictures, it is fun to see the excitement from each hunter and to hear the stories to go with them.

Wow, I have dreams about that. For whatever reason, I can never pull the trigger, and I never get the buck. Great story, awesome that it worked out for you. That is probably a once in a lifetime chance.

This is my 13 year old son's first buck from last Monday morning, public land in area 197. I had dropped him off at 6:50 and when I sat down in my stand he shot 3 minutes later. I knew it was him and the text messages started flying. He was so upset, was sure he had missed it high. I asked if it was in the cross hairs or moving when he shot, but he didn't know. I asked if he had buck fever, which he asked, "what's that?" I told him when you're shaking so hard you can't see straight. He replied "YES". So I figured he was probably right that he missed, but I was holding out hope. It took about 75 yards before we found little specks of blood and another couple hundred yards of a sparse blood trail, but he was piled up at the end of it. The shot was a little, low, but clipped his lung. It was a moment we'll always remember.

      I have not seen or heard much on folks chasing Pike.  Everyone has been concentrating on Crappies and a few Tullies
    • HoleHoppingGills
      My thought and by the way I'm a huge gill and crappies guy. Id like to see all MN lakes with a regulation that 9 or 9. 5 inch go back ASAP on crappie!!. Been seeing a lot of.lakes destroyed by fishermen taking limits of small fish. Use to fish a small.lake near Tonka few times a year and always did well on quality panfish... I went there few years later like I always did in the spring off a dock to catch spawning crappies. Lake has no access,  anyways some guys were fishing and had there kids to obviously use them for fish limits, Watched this guy pull in a 5 inch crappie, turns around lifts up a metal basket out of the water. This basket maxed out and completely full.of 5 to 7 inch crappies.  About 6 in the party kept EVERYTHING. Tried it few times that winter which I normally did back then.... no fish population at all.  Just my thoughts sorry so long lol
    • HoleHoppingGills
      Member only ...looking for some reports near Wright county area or even west and north of there.  Been fishing this small lake out near South Haven and been crushing 9.5 inch gills  and 12 inch crappies the last 2 months.  Went back last week after take a 2 week break and everything was suspended and tiny. Before everything was just off weeds deep and coming from botto....not sure what happened  but fish were loaded like a xmas on the flx28, maybe oxygen levels? First pic of the crappies took me and friend 1 hour and 20 holes... so much fun!!!!

      Jasopete, Thanks so much for the information!  One more thing I just thought of---is there any cell service in this rather remote location?  I'll be sure to check back in here and let you know how we did.

      Zucker gone & Big Bad Bruce, shoot,,,adios amigo. 😳 Our professional hockey organization is truly Wild!    Hopefully there's an interesting & entertaining playoff run. Good thing half the NHL makes the post season. Late spring hockey games that really matter totally rock. Let's Go Wild!!!

      What area were you in? Nothing specific, just general area. Like Alexandria or whatever.
    • Daniel Hayes
      On buck, are their any secrets to know about? Says it's a clear lake, any chance panfish might bite at night?
    • AlwaysFishing23
      It’s not bad! I got it this last fall at a hardware type store with a fishing department. They had the reels priced at $39.99. Plus they were running a 25% off reel sale. So I got it for something like $25. So a $90 reel I walked out for $25. It’s ok worth the $25 but not $90 imo.
