Recommended Posts

Some must still be on the deer. Had one in the back yard yesterday here in rochester. Still had both antlers. Nothing to get excited over, only a fork horn.

RincRat,

I would agree that is not the same deer keep looking. You got a good chance at two matched sets!!

The one on the top photo left side and the next photo could be a match the one on the right top is not the same deer for sure

There are more bucks out there than most people realize good luck

My bad rincrat... I thought you meant the 1st pic was a match. Like swamp said, they look like a match to me.

Went down to our property on Sunday. Didn't find any, but the neighbor found a bunch on his property to the bucks we know about. Still alot of snow in one of our good areas. But maybe it was also because we saw people's footprints...

Neighbor has cameras up year round and said 2 of the biggest bucks dropped in December. He also got a trespasser on camera. This guy put his hood up when he saw the first camera, but didn't see the second one so got him on camera, showed his picture around town and found out who was. Went and got all the sheds back from him. The guy even picked up the ones the neighbor had put out for his kids to find. Pathetic.

Had another guy parked on the access road to the field with all his gear on. No reason for anyone to stop there. When he asked him what he was doing, he said smoking a cigarette. Pathetic again.

Luckily he drives by our and his property twice a day.

there are plenty of big deer roaming the cities and the burbs that live long and grow big.....I would bet there are more than the 2 8 pointers in your buddies area in bloomington

Ya this snow is getting pretty old. I put on 11 miles yesterday and only found one little 3 pt side. Theres still over a foot in most areas around here so unless they have 14" tines and are laying tines up they cant be seen

I hadn't been out for awhile, but decided to check a local city park Friday afternoon. The DNR had been in burning off cedar trees on the hillside. I ended up finding two small ones that sat out a year. Nothing fresh.

Just looked over all my sheds I have at home this weekend. All but one are right sides. I have two match sets. I have looked before for shed but only the last couple years have I really made some better attempts to get out and look.

Even the big antler I found this winter is a right. I"m still looking for the other side of that. Seen one deer this weekend and still had both antlers.

I think I have a just around 20 sheds that do not match. 19 rights and 1 left. Hoping to find more in NE and SD turkey hunting.

ok so i have a question, i have tis prime spot where the deer walk at the bottom of this hill on a beaten path (by the deer) along a river, and now its flooding, when the river goes down do you think any sheds will be washed under or mean covered by leave and clutter after the river goes down?

Vexilarman--- We had that same issue in ND last year. Some spots were completely under water and logs and sticks and junk got moved around and piled up. We never found sheds in those areas. Other areas had mild flooding and we found sheds there. They will more than likely be covered in a fine silt but that washes off. If the water doesnt move to quick through that area you should be ok.

I decided to hit a spot yesterday afternoon and found 4 sheds in 2 hours walking. They sure stand out now with the snow mostly off!

I had another awesome day of shed hunting today! Ended up with 5 antlers between 3:30 and 6pm tonight. All single sides. Two real nice ones. One was sitting in a deer bed on a main trail in a small city park that usually is walked heavily every spring. I could see it from 50 yards away while walking out the top of the hill so don't know how it was missed. Missed getting a photo of one of them. Makes 21 for the season so far.

I found my biggest shed buck skull yet on Monday, and took it over to show a friend. He in turn comes out with this huge skull that drawfs the one I found by quite a bit. I took a couple of photos so you could see just how big this thing was.

Salamanders are the bomb smile I used to find them in my basement all the time, but not the last couple of years. I still find them occasionally outside around the place.

Lot's of good looking sheds being found.

I made it out yesterday for a short hike and found 2. My camera was on the fritz, so some pics did not turn out. I was very proud of my dog because she found her first shed. Most of the sheds I see first, but this was really her first solo shed find. I was standing there talking to my wife on the phone, and I saw her rooting around about 30 yards away; all of sudden she comes up with a nice little yearling 4pt. She got about 3 dog treat after that one!

      McKinley Park parking lot is plowed regularly but is often quite busy.  Fortune Bay would be another option but I assume the parking lot is for guests (or customers).

      Had fun diver hunting but my partners sucked at shooting worse than me. First flock I let them shoot and I dropped one it was a ringer and Finn chased that suck way out in the lake and around. Ended up with one merganser and my hunting partners never touched a duck.

      In years past, Jack and other owners of the Landing used to keep the boat launch plowed next door. The last owners of the Landing didn't do it. I've asked several times while frequenting the Landing this summer/fall, and it sounds like they do not plan to keep the lot open either. Are there any other public launches on the lake that are regularly or semi-regularly plowed for people to park sled trailers?
    • monstermoose78
      Good luck I heard a report today lots of lakes are frozen

      Wow, I posted that information almost a decade ago. Those definition points I posted are not my opinion but if I remember correctly, I believe they came from the Hunting Handbook. As I posted.... • Crossbow hunters may not party hunt with firearms hunters. • Crossbow hunters may party hunt with archery hunters if they possess an archery license with a crossbow disability permit.   I'm not aware of any change in the law since then.

      Made it out for 4 hours yesterday and all I caught was this 25" walleye and a 22" northern.  Didn't have a bite in 2 hours last night and didn't see the people fishing by me pull up a fish.  Water temp was 37.4°F and there was a lot of green globs floating in the water.  Maybe that was from the water turning over (heaviest at 39.16°F).  I will blame that for the poor fishing rather than my lack of fishing skill (which I know I have).   Hoodoo point landing (2nd photo) had a little shore ice and McKinley Park (3rd photo) was totally clear as was Stuntz Bay.  With low temperatures in the teens the next 3 mornings I would expect ice to start forming along some shores.  Pulled my boat out of the water but could easily put it back in if the lake stays ice-free and I get my buck early.

      I’m leaving the boat home...forecast just sucks up there for the weekend! I’m going to find out the hard way if I indeed patched the leak in my waders 🥶 I’m just going hop from lake to lake, and hope the ice won’t be a problem.
