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!

      Sorry I haven't posted recently. We have been out hunting pretty regularly. What a weird weather pattern this fall. Guess the weather would be as abnormal as everything else in 2020. Where we hunt in central MN, we have frozen over the small and medium water twice, and then warmed it back open twice. Record snowfall from October is gone in November. With this unusual weather, we have noticed a very irregular migration. Gusty WNW wind and cold days that we thought would be lights out were disappointing, and some good hunts happened on warm SE wind days that we didn't have high expectations. There are still plenty of mallard, bluebills, goldeneyes, buffies, and mergs north of us, but not much using the lakes around central MN right now. We are switching over to field hunting near town, as there are a lot of geese and mallards sitting in town and feeding in surrounding fields. Attached are some pics of our last couple weekends on the water. Hopefully some pics from field hunting with another report will follow after Thanksgiving. Good luck, stay safe, and happy Thanksgiving.

      I see that Highbanks on Fish lake has a few inches out in the narrows. Not sure if he is letting people out or not. Really need some below zero temps to lock things up.

      Looking at a few webcams, we are getting closer to ice-up:

      I'm assuming they were panfish beds.  Just seems like such a random spot.  Wish I had an underwater camera with me, I would have checked them out when I first saw them.  
    • IceHawk
      Coleman were they panfish beds? Many times they will still be there the following year if not washed away.

      Eboni labrador retrievers was the kennel. Heard nothing but good things about smith farm labradors

      On the south end...  As we approach Thanksgiving, thin ice covers back bays and a portion of the big lake, otherwise known as Big Traverse Bay.   Roughly half of the lake is covered in ice with the rest open water.  Ice anglers are hoping for cold nights combined with low wind and no snow to create a good early sheet of ice.  Every year is different based on Mother Nature of course, but normally resorts will be able to get their smaller fish houses, called day houses, out around December 10th.  When the ice thickens, resorts will begin marking trails where there is the best ice.  Stay tuned... On the Rainy River...   The river is covered in most places with a layer of thin ice.  Most ice fishing is done on the main lake during the ice season where there isn't current.  With current in the river, most visitors will work through a resort for safety. Up at the NW Angle...  The Angle has a mix of iced over areas with open water in neck down areas.  The ice is forming nicely and the hopes are for colder weather to keep things moving along positively.  Resorts are ready for ice fishing!  A complete list of lodging and ice fishing packages available at www.fishingminnesota.com/Lodging

      Has anyone been out to check ice on any lakes in area. Heard there was 2-3 inches on strand. 
    • Coleman
      Just as a note, I got on the chain Saturday around noon.  Main lakes had a skim of ice, 1/2", shallow bodies(East lake) look like the ice was actually walkable, please don't take my word for that though.     Anyways, water temps were 34*.  I didn't fish much at all, just broke up enough ice to get some new data for mapping.  I did mark quiet a few fish, which is a plus.     On another note, has anyone else noticed the large group(15-20) of beds on Horseshoe just north of the meth hole, about 8-9FOW?  I noticed these this spring, and they're still there.  Thought it was kind of interesting they'd still be there even after all the boat traffic this year.
