Found this monster 3/3/11. I am very interested in this buck since i have seen him every day for the last 3 months where i feed. I noticed he was missing a one side. I decided to go for a walk right before dark and within about 10 min saw a few drops of blood and about 50 feet from the first drop i found the shed. He lost his other side today, but with this snow we are receiving now it will be hard to find.

Was out this last weekend for a little bit in the metro and only came up with two dead does. I cannot wait for this snow to melt. I was still going through areas yesterday up over the knee. With the warm up that is predicted this week, hopefully we'll be seeing a lot of bare ground this weekend.

Is it common for you guys to see drops of blood close to a shed? I think I remember seeing some when I found some last year and I'm wondering if that's not a rare thing?

I have seen a little bit on a few sheds, but for the most part I don't find any blood. If I see any blood that is not in the tracks, I definitely get excited.

Wow bety thats a freak deer there, really cool match! Matchset your on a roll there!

I pulled my first one today in a pine plantation. Just a little 3 pt side but its still great to get on the board. And I accomplished my goal of finding one in the snow so that was nice. Id post a pic but I cant get the pics from my phone onto the computer.

We walked another 4.5 miles today and my buddy found a decent 5 pt side from last year. I cant believe we can find a year old shed with all this snow but cant find a fresh one to save our lives

Still a lot of knee deep snow by Staples, but found a nice one on my first shed hunt of the year.

I dont know if this is the best spot to ask this but can someone please help me? I have been out shed hunting multiple times this year i think 6 times and havent found 1... I am finding nice trails and following them looking hard and not finding anything. I find tons of beds, [PoorWordUsage], rubs and everything else to indicate there are deer all there but no antlers. What should i be looking for?

Hows the snow depth down there? Theres some areas around here that still have 20+ inches of snow and a few areas(under thick conifer cover and south facing sides/hills) that barely have any snow. Almost any antler that is tines down will be hard to find now. My buddy found two last week and both were only showing 3-4" of tine through the snow. And the G2 was 11" on on of them....

Rincrat, nice sheds but they don't look like a match to me... do you have a pic of the deer? Otherwise I would say you got a shot at a couple nice 8 pts!

      Has the pizza gotten better? It was bad in the beginning.   We had exceptional garlic-butter wings and burgers back in May when they only did dockside delivery. One time in June or July I had their fish tacos which were good. Italian sandwich was good another time but they severely overcooked my brother's walleye sandwich and fries at the same time.    The bartender told us that they were having staffing problems. Put that on top of the volume of customers they seem to consistently have, and I'm not surprised that the kitchen staff is inconsistent. It's still way better than the last owners!

      If you go to the Landing I recommend sticking to wings or pizza.  Everything else is a crap shoot.  Literally.

      Didn't know that they hung it up that soon.

      Just wondering if anyone else that fishes the Root (especially below Lanesboro) has ever patterned or had any luck targeting sauger/eyes. This is my first year trying for them after hearing whispers for years and I've been surprised with my results. So far I've caught 5 sauger and 4 eyes out of the Root this year, a 17 inch Sauger and a 22 inch eye being my biggest so far. I know the river is a lot better known for trout but if anybody else has had any luck targeting other species I'd love to share reports or tactics.

      On the south end...  Anglers are pulling in nice catches of walleyes with some big trophy walleyes mixed in as well.  The MN Tournament Trail Walleye Tournament just finished their championship with the winning team putting up 80.99 lbs for 10 walleyes!  Water temps have dropped to the upper 50's, shiners are running and there is a lot of bait adjacent to shorelines, fall is here.  The jig bite has picked up tremendously, but pulling a spinner with a crawler or shiner along with trolling crankbaits is still effective. Along shore try 10-16' and out on the mud 22-28'.  Gold, glow and orange are strong this week. On the Rainy River...   More and more emerald shiners are entering the river this week.  Current on the river is slow.  Reports of some nice walleyes but still not the big run yet.  Most anglers are jigging with frozen shiners.  Trolling crankbaits or crawler harnesses still working and a good way to cover water. Sturgeon anglers focusing on deeper holes with a 3 ounce no roll sinker with an 18" snell of heavy line (60 lb) with a 4/0 circle hook loaded with crawlers and shiners.  Pike showing up on weed edges. Up at the NW Angle...  Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake staying and fishing in MN waters.  There are boat shuttle / passenger services available to the Angle.  Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for options.   As fall kicks in, many anglers jigging with good results.  Gold spinners with crawler or minnow also producing nicely.  Some really nice walleyes caught this week targeting structure and shorelines in 10 - 15' and 21 - 27'.  Muskies and big pike hitting topwater in weedy bays.  Some big crappies on small jigs in 15-30'.

      Just spent Thursday through Sunday at Becida near Bemidji. My dad, brother, nephew and I tried 7 different lakes. Nothing fantastic but a good time. Best walleye action was on Big Wolf and Andrusia.  14 to 16 ft water. We used mainly rainbows and left over leeches I had saved from summer. 11-18 inch walleyes. Also got some sunfish on Lake Hatti.  Did pick up 3 walleye on Lake Bemidji also.  4 conservation officers at gas station south of Bemidji on Friday morning said they were in town for security with POTUS visit.  Talked to a bait shop owner that said one group of 13 got 11 bear opening weekend. WOW that’s a lot of meat. Also saw a bobcat run across the road. And lots of deer in evenings.

      Lead core was on fire for us on Saturday on both the east and west end in 22-30' of water.  Five of us in two boats boated over 70 fish on Saturday.  A lot of 10-12"ers but enough keepers to fill 5 limits.  Biggest was 25".  We did great Sunday and today as well although not as hot as Saturday.  The only live bait fishing we did was with minnows on Lindy's.  Caught a few but honestly did not spend much time live rigging as the lead core bite was so hot.  Stomachs on most fish we cleaned were empty.  The ones with full stomachs had mostly small crayfish and minnows.
