BIG BUCK FOUND

Recommended Posts

thesecret

Hey guys and gals. I just left clearwater lake today and on my way home i saw a nice buck dead in the woods. Looks like it was shot and died in its sleep. The coyotes did get. But the Rack is in good shape. I know if i shot this buck I would like to get the rack at least. If any one knows of anyone who shot and did not find there deer let me know. I found It just North of Annandale, off of Mongomery Ave .103rd street to be exact.

yea, you might want to call the CO before you get caught with a rack in your truck without a tag.

The secret please call 612-221-1535 And ask for George. His situation matches your description perfectly and he hunts within quarter mile from that location. I told him he might hear from you. Thanks hopefully it is the match

The Secret, thanks for being a true sportsman. George is ecstatic about the crazy ending to this story. Would make a great mount someday considering the crazy story. Crazy also that you guys ran into each other the other day and made a little small talk.

Thanks again.

I dont think he should have any promblem tagging it. I had already registered it with the county. cause i didnt want to get caught with it in the back of my truck. So i gave him the number they gave me.

I didnt take any pics but maybe daydreamer could get some on here

This is how it happened,

I was leaving the lake last tuesday afternoon and while i was driving down the road, there is a stretch were i always look into the woods for deer. When i saw what i thought was a big buck laying down. After i stopped and backed up did i realize that it was dead. It looked like it just layed down and died. that is what made me think that someone had shot it and never found it. (i have shot deer, went back in the mornin to get them and found them laying like that)The size of the bucks rack made me thnk that who ever shot this has been having nightmares since, because he never found it. I figured that because of its size someone had to know that someone never found it and was having nightmares about it. SO i posted it on here and started asking a few people in the area. And it worked daydreamer knew George and got me his number. The best part is, is that i have known George for 10yrs and on tuesday After i pulled the deer out of the woods and had it in the back of my truck, i ran into George at Little Jims and we were talking about fishin. Ha.

he didnt know i found his buck and he didn't know it was 10ft away from him. Im jsut glad he was able to get something out of it.

Hockeybc69 its not the biggest buck in the woods but it deffinetly is a above average buck. A real nice 8 pionter with nice mass and tall tines , i would say it is between 130 - 140

Great story. Happy for you George! I think were all in agreement though that pictures of the rack would be a good ending on this site.

There was a 160 class 8pt (I think it was 161 green scored) that died in an acquantance's front yard with an arrow in it this year. She and her husband were able to find the rightful owner a few days later. I never saw the buck, but this was a bruiser from what I can imagine.

It is great hearing these stories. I wish there were more out there...seems to be a lot of bickering and selfishness when it comes to deer hunting and bucks now-a-days.

Great story. Let's not be knocking fellow hunters for takin 130 to 140 class bucks. That may be a lifetime trophy for some. There's plenty of big boys out there if yer after one.

      Rough weekend at the lake... but still better than any day at work! I managed to get out for a few hours Saturday morning and then got off the lake when the storms rolled in and stayed off. I threw for muskies for a few hours but didn't move any and then switched to smallies and boated a few on rock piles.  We were stuck for a while on Saturday with the road near Camp Vermilion washed out. Looks like the whole area got quite a bit of water. How'd everyone else fare?

      Does anyone know if you can get a digital thermostat for the roof top AC units? I have a coleman mach 3 plus. The fan constantly stays on and is super loud. But it does work really well for cooling. Any help would be appreciated.

      Spent the weekend on Ottertail, fishing tough. Waves 1 to 3 ft. 4" rain Sat. night, on/off rain all weekend. Caught a few biggest 18". Water crystal clear 15+ ft, even with waves, due to millions of Zebra Mussel in lake. Weeds and clam shells had many Zebras attached. Still better than working.
    • mrpike1973
      My intent is not to bash here. Many Rapalas are great lures but a heads up I had 5 of them on the casting deck of the boat in the heat within 3 hours every one of the split from the heat!!! Wow that was money down the tubes. I have never had that happen. Also it is never a good idea to slap a lure to get weeds off I'm aware of that nonetheless my bride slapped her's to get a weed off nothing violent but what she got back was a lure in pieces. I love many of the lures but wont be buying any off those again. I have had the lips pull out on the Shad Raps before. My favorite is the Fat raps those are indestructible. 
    • gimruis
      It happens.  If you timed if post-spawn, its definitely tougher.  It takes them a while to recover and get into their summer pattern.
    • delcecchi
      Stovetop?  Walleye on west end is tough because there are fewer and they are mostly larger fish that don't seem to behave the same way as smaller ones.  
    • vermilionfox
      Pike should be working well on the deep weedlines leading into the two slop bays that Del mentioned. They are commonly calle "The Nursery". Largies should be anywhere in the weeds. Del also hit the nail on the head about the Windsock island and the bay behind it. The windsock island area can be a good walleye producer in the early mornings and sometimes in the evenings. Don't forget to try the larger "bay" (really more of an indentation) past the Windsock island and its associated bay. Lots of boulders in there so be careful, you'll see some shiny rocks! I've had good success in there  for both species of bass and pike, lots of nice sunnies too. There is a reef that runs from the point directly out across Norwegian from the resort marina and runs from there to the other shore running to the northeast. Good spot for the evening walleye bite. You'll probably also want to try fishing the Merry Go Round and the Stovepipe on Wak-Em-Up Bay for walleyes and smallies. I'll try to post more info when I have a bit more time!  
    • Rick
      Thanks for the heads up. You going over weed tops or deep?
    • MinnowBuckets
      Is anyone doing well for smallies or walleyes on the river right now? I haven’t been out in over a week and the water has gotten pretty muddy with the recent rain.
    • jigginjim
      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.
