Great bucks everyone and even better stories, I am really enjoying the kid stories. I have been hunting with my eleven year old this season so they are hitting close to home. He missed a doe on Sat afternoon so we will be back at it this weekend. Good luck to everyone and shoot straight.

20 minutes after I got home from work, this 10 pointer came through my yard.

Was blessed with a 10 point yesterday at 345 PM!! The back story is this.....I have hunted everyday with my son and dad, my son got a doe Sunday morning. we had been seeing doe and fawns all week but no bucks. Decided to head out to the stand yesterday afternoon until the kids got home from school. As soon as the kids got home and I heard the bus, I said to myself, self, hit that bleet can one more time wait fifteen minutes and head in. I hit the bleet can three time in a row, waited. In under 2 minutes the buck shows up out of no where 80 yards away on the other side of the ridge from me. He is stopped looking in my direction. I see its a buck and ready myself. He begins trotting down the ridge, dang he's moving, I give him a few grunt calls. He stops behind tree's. Ok I wait, he begins trotting away again, I hit the grunt call again, he stops, yes behind tree's. He is a smart one!!! so I get the gun up in the next opening in the direction he is headed, he begins to move again right to the opening. He makes it to the opening, I got him in my scope and BANG! He does a big kick and slowly walks away??? Did I miss??? I get ready for a second shot and down he goes, piled up into the snow 30 yards from where I took the shot at him! Double lung. Second buck in 3 years on my little bottle neck piece of land!!!! Great end to the season for us!!!! full-16767-51203-2014buck.jpg

Shot this little guy out west today in 20 mile an hour winds and 7° air temp, little chilly. Did a spot and stalk and took him at 350 yards with a 20 mile an hour cross wind, sometimes better to be lucky than good!!!

Opening weekend was really slow for us, only seeing a few does. One of the guys in our group saw three different bucks and passed all of them. Wasn't sure what the second weekend would bring and ended up sneaking out last Weds. evening. Got out late, sat down where a trail split around 4:30. Hit my grunt tube 4-5x's and waited. Three minutes later this guy snuck in to my right. Had a small portion of the front shoulder to aim at and the 30.06 barked. About 30 yards later I was looking at a 12 pointer! Has a few kickers around the bases; would've been 13, but is missing a brow.

Good luck to all this weekend. full-24609-51285-photo1.png

Got this guy Saturday morning took about a half hour working the can to get him to come out of the thick for a shot. Was fun watching him as he would only move a few steps at a time then stop never in a spot to get a good shot.

My son and I were truly blessed on the hunt this year. I was able to harvest my first trophy and my son shot his first deer ever. We shot both of them on the Sunday of opening weekend. I shot mine Sunday morning about 8am, he shot his doe at about 4pm.

Here are a couple photos of my buck. 11 points, 22 1/4 inch inside spread. Taxidermist estimated it weighed 250 pounds field dressed. Green scored 176.

Here is my son's first doe. I was so proud of him. We watched her slowly walk in for about a half hour. Once she got within 65 yards he took the shot.

Very nice deer ! I wonder if the wet June etc. made some difference on putting on a few more inches of antler vs. a dry spring/summer ? Nice job to those who connected ! And good luck to those like myself who are driving a load down the barrel for Saturday !

      Does anybody know any good places to catch Sturgeon on the Mississippi River near the cities. If so what gear should I use.    thanks
    • TomWehler
      Great Sunset pic. Thanks.  
    • TomWehler
      FYI Saw car thru narrows between lil green n green last night. Please think.    Never driive thru skinny narrows as these lakes do have pretty steady current. Scattered carp holes will start showing up also - so BEWARE. BE SAFE. HAVE FUN! 18” here.  6” there.    Keep on Rocken! T

      Someone has to be within 200' of their portable or it needs to be licensed. Nothing in there about overnite that I saw.

      The Mille Lacs Fisheries Advisory Committee (MLFAC) will meet from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19, at Appeldoorn’s Sunset Bay Resort, 45401 Mille Lacs Parkway, Isle.   The agenda will focus on this year’s safe harvest level, a fishing season update and DNR’s in-progress lake management planning process. Members of the public may observe MLFAC meetings, but these meetings serve primarily as a way for the committee to hold group discussions. Fifteen minutes are reserved for public comments and questions. The committee has been active since October 2015. Its purpose is to advise the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) on the State of Minnesota’s fisheries management program for Mille Lacs Lake.

      Exactly...overnight yes.🙂

      Portable shelters only need licenses and identification when left unattended, which is defined as all occupants being more than 200 feet away.
    • iiccee63
      It is a portable. No one has to put any info on there. Fyi

      5 days left in the big game ice fishing season. I'm sure if you ask jonny boy he was say it has been a grind with quite a bit of frustration thrown in for good measure. The condition were tough to say the least. Dealing with deep snow and slush made getting to good fishing grounds impossible at times. Having to abandon good fishing due to slush problems, working on the fleet outside most of the time was and has always been a chore to say the least. from broken axels,  u joints, door latches, windows not going up, wiper motor, heaters, electrical problems from all the ice built up. Getting stuck was also a huge problem. Every year is different . years ago we did have similar conditions with road ways flooding, then refreezing etc.  The kids have been busy with the turnover of houses this week. They were able to move shell chick and her friend Terrry to another area where they had a little better fishing going home yesterday with there 8. Tony boy our old helper came up with his kids Mason and Treana. they have floated around from montana to florida. The first night they had 3 followed by a couple more. They did stay one more night so we will have to see how they did. The fishing has been slow for sure.  Jake ,Jen and there boy Lakin  they  had 5 yesterday when they headed in to clean them and have dinner at westwind. Jake sure likes how they cook your fish there.  I'm not sure how the guest in Colorado did  as I thought they were here 2 nights not one.  Asley plans on fishing the next 2 nights I think.  With Rick and Bob out in florida last night and there friend Rod and his crew in north Dakota we will have to see how they do on there fresh spots.   Florida is still wide open for the weekend due to a cancelation, They may of gotten spooked by the slow fishing or ice conditions  I did get to wet a line for a bit yesterday in old Minnesota, again fishing with the chubby darter Ii had another pike ,only this time he hit the rattle wheel which sure made it fun to catch.  I"m again headed out to fish the morning in old Minnesota before we head to  another appointment for my car accident injuries. I'm still dealing with problems from my concussion, i'm praying and hoping that my broken vertebra are healed up as I expect some therapy will be next. Its time to head out and do a little fishing on this grand lake that owes us nothing.

      Yes that was me!!! I remember seeing a plane fly over that’s so awesome!! What an awesome view from the plane I would live to see it from up there!
