The food plot on the land I hunt is stacked with deer.

Mr. Drop Tine Buck from last year has been observed by the land owner several times in the last week.

I have added 3 stands in new locations this year.

I now have 5 to choose from.

I have 3 of my cameras up and the landowner has 4 up.

This buck has been on my mind since I saw him in August of 2009.

Saw him many times last year but he was never in range.

I am fairly certain I have his bedding area located, but he never seems to take the same path to the food plot.

I will not be able to hunt Saturday, I am involved in the Youth Waterfowl Day mentored hunt, but I plan on spending almost all day in the stand on Sunday.

I have hung 17 stands this year (i think?) was supposed to sit down and make a list of were they are all at but didnt get around to it yet. I just got another piece of property on friday that has not been legally hunted in almost twenty years I know that there is atleast 1 really good buck in the area I have seen him crossing the road twice this summer. Looking at the maps I think I will hang three maybe four stands there not really sure though I plan on going for a walk tomorow and try and do some long range scouting with the glasses to get a better feel for how they are using this woods I know there is one ridge top that I will stay away from untill the rut and then will hang and hunt the same day. I am starting to get the itch bad now. I also have to dig out my geaqr and sort through it and give the clothes a scent free bath. that should take up my free time for the next few days.

I need to finish washing up the camo in scent-free soap, hang them outside for a couple of days, finish suring up the backpack and the needs of the items inside.

Keep shooting 1-2 arrows with the broadhead on a day and by the way did I mention it is about 138 hrs away....... smilegrinlaugh

I can't wait either. I'm doing hopefully my last load of laundry since I forgot to wash and line dry a towel. Doesn't make much sense to wash up in scent free soap and then dry off with a scented towel.

Seems like about three weeks ago i went from lake cabin mode to hunting mode!! Once the weather cooled off, the hunting itch came quickly!! I have my stands ready to roll, the clover plots are thick and green, and i have seen alot of deer with a few decent bucks but just today found a set of tracks that really got my heart pounding, tracks can be deceiving but to put an imprint like that in a gravel road should be a big deer!!

Can't wait either. Took my 6yo boy out, sat in my ladder stand and saw three does and a very close spike buck within 15 yards. This was his first sit ever and he will not stop talking about it now, he had to call both grandpas to tell them...I think he's hooked...5 days and counting!!!

Well something came up and my bow season won't start until Sunday night, I try telling myself it's a long season but that doesn't seem to be working very well. Its going to be one very long work week plus an extra 1.5 days for this hunter.

With the luck I had last season the stand I pick to sit in will not be the right one.

Had it happen several times where I would choose a stand based on the wind and then watch Mr. Drop Tine practically walk under one of my other stands.

You know I've had this happen and few times and it finally donned on me that when the wind is in my favor I'm not going to see that buck because he wants the wind in his favor. The bucks that don't learn that are usually shot right away.

All my clothes are on the line drying out for Sunday evening. Hopefully this will be THE year. I've said that for countless years now. It's bound to happen at some point, right?

      How’s the the smallie bite? I’ll be up on Friday 😎 ~Tripp

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year. 
    • delcecchi
      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.
    • Jetsky
      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.
    • Hookmaster
      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.
    • MikeG3Boat
      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
