At first glance I thought it was a nontypical, but it was just a small matchset.

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!!!

I checked my cams 2 and a half weeks ago. All were wearing antlers. Some were ever sparring. Cool stuff.

Is this odd?

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!

      I am coming up there Sept 5 and staying a week.  I can hardly wait!  I want to get in on the trolling bite before it gets too late.  
    • BobT
      One of the reasons I decided to try them is size. Can't find shiners here and the fatheads are small, almost as small as crappie minnows. The light pike sucker minnows are 4" - 5" and with the water cooling down and the later part of the season, I'm thinking the size will more closely match natural forage. We'll see how things go.

      Went out of superior entry yesterday morning. Found some decent laker action. They were all on the small side and most all of them came in 52 fow on the riggers set at 45 ft. Ended up with 7 lakers and a bonus walleye. Had a lot of quick releases on the riggers as well so probably smaller Lakers. 
    • tacklejunkie
      One of the lakers had 14 pieces of minnows in it's gut!! And it still attacked my spoon
    • delcecchi
      By the way, we saw three nice bucks in a group on Wakemup Village Rd on the way home.  I was sort of surprised since They were clearly in a group, and I thought bucks were more solitary.    Looked like 6-8 pointers.    Good looking deer.    
    • tacklejunkie
      Went out late last week out of the Wisc entry and dropped a line in 55 feet of water and nailed one right off the bat before setting any other lines out. Trolled till 100am and we picked up 5 lakers and one nice walleye. Walleye went back.   Most on dipseys and one came off a  4 oz snap weight right off the back with spoons. No particular coleor
    • tacklejunkie
      Agree with the above. But I've also caught plenty of eating sized walleyes with them, also
    • Kettle
      I've used light suckers when I couldn't get shiners or rainbows and was going after bigger walleye and they did work. 
    • Wanderer
      We had bought bait for pike fishing last winter, well I sent my wife in to buy it while I fueled the truck.  Scoop of crappies and a dozen suckers for tip ups.  She came back with a scoop of crappies and a dozen light pike suckers.  Those are for pike, right?   We couldn’t get on the lake we intended to so went to plan B for walleyes with friends.  I “gave em a try” and was really impressed how well they worked.  I’ll definitely do it again.

      Went to Landing last night (Saturday).   Had reservations and got a nice table by the window.   Server was working hard but seemed like maybe she was new and over loaded.    My iced tea was served in a shorter glass, and the water was plastic cups.  Maybe the dishwasher was behind.   Food was good and served hot.   My burger was a little over cooked but not bad enough to make me complain to the place.  Just you guys.      Prices moderate.  They  had run out of artichokes for the artichoke dip...  Price was good.   Plenty food for me and mrs.     No alcohol, my buddy is on methotrexate and gets one beer a week.   His was friday at the cook vfw burger night which I highly recommend.
