Velvet gone???

I haven't gotten any pics yet but word on the "internet" is about half the bucks have lost their velvet, the rest should be losing it very soon.

I had some small bucks in velvet on the cams yesterday. The big guys are MIA, typical of their behavior after they shed their velvet.

2 more stands to hang and 2 more blinds to put out and then it's hurry up and wait time. cry

I saw one with and one without two nights ago in a bean field. I guess it holds up to the fifty/fifty. I checked my camera today after 5 days and I got a pic. of a gray fox and some coon. Thats not what I was hoping for!

mostly gone for the most part. I shot a 155 2/8 in 8 pt in nd on opening night in full velvet, but he would of been solid within days. My camera out there showed one in velvet and the rest bone. Check my cameras around home and they were all hard as of 9-4-10

Velvet is going fast if its not already gone. No suprise since we've already passed the first week of September.

I haven't had any bucks on cam the past two weeks so I couldn't tell you. Time to start hitting the oaks as the beans have yellowed.

Of about a dozen or so different bucks on camera over the last week, all but about 2 were out of velvet.

Stick you might want to check Alfalfa as well. Took a drive last night and every alfalfa field was full of deer.

Had a 16 pointer in the yard last night with no velvet.

Man those deer get big back in the wildlife refuge in the MN river valley.

Anybody want to sit up on my roof with a bow pointed at my bird feeder? Leave the gut pile in my neighbor's yard. Her dog drops deuces all over my yard.

      Might not have to wear ear plugs when I mow!      That’s a spendy one.  It wasn’t hard to find one of those for $6k.  Comparatively and Ariens of the same size is $4,200.  A home owner grade JD for $3,900.  You could get into a commercial grade Z700 for maybe $8k.   I think the work I did today with mine would’ve killed that one there.

      On the south end...   This year's MN Fishing Opener weekend was not only great weather wise, the walleyes and saugers were caught in good numbers.  A main fish gut hauler working with a number of resorts commented it was one of the most productive opening weekends he has seen based on the amount of fish guts collected after the weekend. The goto presentation was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   Four Mile Bay held good walleyes in 12 - 18'.  Not a surprise as the walleye bite on the river during the spring season was good and as of late, sturgeon anglers have been reporting catching walleyes on sturgeon rigs.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 12 - 15'.  Across the south shore, 18 - 22' was holding good numbers as well.  As you can see, there are lots of fish around.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well.   As a reminder, the limit of walleyes and saugers is a combined limit of six fish, up to four of the six can be walleyes.  All walleyes between 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released.  One fish over 28.0 inches can be kept.  The possession limit in MN is one daily limit of fish. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers hit the lake.  10 - 15' of water was the norm.     Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River has been excellent.  The catch and release season continues through May 15th and then closes until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes were caught in 18 - 25 feet of water, a little deeper than anticipated.  Points were good as were areas with structure.  The morning and evening bite was best.       As water continues to warm, go to spots for walleyes will be neck down areas, shoreline breaks, points and bays.     The goto presentation was a jig and minnow.
