Only one I've found

I took a walk this afternoon and came up with my 10th of the season, and my biggest so far. I rough guessed it at around 70 inches. Nice to get a big one now and then!

Same here, I bumped into two 8 pointers yesterday and they had both sides. I chased them for a little while to see if anything would drop but no luck.

In the high winds yesterday they almost ran right into me, I just happened to hear a crash, turned around and there was a doe and two bucks 20 feet away, a fun little encounter for sure. Wish I had a camera on me at the time.

Nice sheds guys.

I too saw an 8pt still holding on Saturday in the Metro. I'm really pumped about the snow, for a second there it was looking like we could actually make it out in the metro and find something....

This has been a pretty slow season for me so far, I'm glad some of you guys are finding bone. Good luck to all.

I wish. I'm sure some of you have heard of the "Excelsior" buck from this past summer. Well these are the sheds - I heard close to 90" a piece.

Yeah it is the new mn state record and 6th biggest set in the world. 175 0/8 with one side at 90 3/8 and the other at 89 5\8. The duluth news tribune has the story. Insane deer!!!

its not odd.

IMO, 20% of bucks shed in December, 50% in January, 20% in February and 10% in March.

there's a lot of factors, but when its all said and done these are the percents i have come up with in my observations.

WOW! HT thats awesome! I walked another 2.5 miles last night and found some good areas. Still waiting on the snow to get gone though. The -20 degrees we had this morning isnt helping the cause though!

HT, what a set. I have an antler that looks some what like that. A couple deer in this one area I shed hunt have huge split twos. This is my first time on here so I will post some picks later. Might have to ask for some help.

Hit the "Reply" button below this text box. Then you will see the square above with the blue arrow. Then it's as lungdeflator said.

You could also look in the "Photography" forum for help. There's a sticky on top that spells out how to upload pics to your post and avitar.

It's here:

      I don't fish that series of lakes but I have also heard that the introduction of the catfish years ago has played a significant role in reducing the population of panfish, especially bluegills.  I know bass anglers that fish out there regularly using artificial moving lures that still catch catfish.  That tells me they are aggressive and hungry.   I believe muskies were also introduced but muskies have not been proven to have a measurable impact on panfish populations, except for maybe perch.  There's simply not enough of them and stomach content studies have shown they prefer a diet of suckers, ciscoes (when present), small pike, and perch.  Would they eat a bluegill given the chance?  Of course.  But they do not seek them out as primary prey.   Another likely factor is angler over harvest.  Panfish populations get hammered almost year round now.

      looks like there will be a change in sunfish limits effective march 1. article in todays st cloud times said there looking to reduce the sunfish limit on 9 area lakes. those lakes happen to make up the horseshoe chain system. looks like the new limit will go from 20 to 10.   now this is just my opinion but i didnt hear any issues with the panfish population  until a few years after they introduced the catfish to that system.   either way i'm ok with the change!

      Are you looking for one for hardwater or openwater

      Whoa, bringing this one back from the dead.   I use Rockys.  The specific model are Cornstalkers.  They have 500 grams of insulation.  I use mine as all-purpose boots, walking for pheasants/grouse and sitting for deer/turkeys.  The first set I had lasted for about 10 years before they started to fall apart.  I'm on my second pair now, year 3 coming up.  I had a pair of Redhead Comfort Airs from Bass Pro for 2 seasons and they started to leak and my feet always got wet.  Highly suggest avoiding the Redhead brand of boots.

      I like Danner. These boots tick all the right factors that go into delivering a great boot experience, more here https://bootsgeek.com/danner-quarry-review/

      Well, just wrapped up my last day in Grand Marais. All the smaller, shallow lakes are locked up with ice, or will be after tonight. Lots of snow up the trail, but getting around on back roads wasn’t a problem. I stopped and fished most of the trout lakes around the gunflint and arrowhead trails...the ones that weren’t frozen over anyway. My dad didn’t see a single grouse...I saw one at the start of the arrowhead. I didn’t hear a single gunshot while I was out fishing. Saw 1 moose, 1 bear, a few deer, foxes were everywhere! And even saw a fisher run across the road. Saw just about every animal print you can think of in the snow. Still a few diving ducks around, snow buntings and crossbills everywhere. And finally seen a gray jay! Despite the cold and snow, it really wasn’t that bad out. Was a different perspective fishing all the lakes in waders, as opposed to being in a boat.

      A huge shout out to Borch who gave some really good pointers on running the raps in our lake.   This fall my dad spent more days fishing from my boat and actually was begging me to go. Dont know if we will be able to do it again but made some really good memories.
