Got the itch now!!!! Camera Pics...


Recommended Posts

Well I checked my cameras for the first time today, I got tons of does, and a couple bucks... I figured this would make you guys happy to see some velvet bucks in the daylight. I caught the biggest on camera in 2 different stand locations, needless to say Im very excited for the year to come...

Locale 3


the guy in the backround is 10 to 12 pts, cant tell if the club on his right side is one or 3 pts...


A nice 8pointer, where he is is exactly 15yeards from my stand smile

Locale 1

The Buck from above... Just gorgeous smile

Great lookin buck Laska! I know the feeling well of someone else getting the big one, as im sure everyone else does! Its probably not the first time and surely not the last frown Part of the game!

That buck you got there now has gotta be around that 140 mark as well I would say! Better get him and make up for last year grin

Ive got many big fellas in the daylight in velvet too... unfortunately, when that velvet comes off the habit seems to change. Lets just hope they make that mistake ONE more time!!! Good luck putting an arrow in him this year!

Thx for the luck guys, I got to meet Lee and Tiffany Lakosky last night and learned a ton of things to do different this year. More than anything I just want my Gpa and wife to get one this year, Ive doubled my time in the woods this year than last year already and Ill be looking forward to opener and hearing whack!!! coming from my wifes side of the stand or my Gpa's.

JUST FOR LUCK the pics above I had Lee and Tiffany sign!! lol talk about superstitious! CANT HURT RIGHT! My wife had her bow signed too, so a little more added luck on her side!

Tiffany and my wife talked about camo shoes-pink bow strings and makeup in the woods... I can live with that!!! hahaha least its about hunting sort of right!? VERY FUN EVENING!!!

Great pics Laska! I saw Tiffany and Lee too at Cabela's and it was pretty neat seein' them in person.

Question for ya: What model Wildgame Innovations trail cam you using there? I'm in the market for a cam or two and don't wanna spend a huge amount of $$ and rumor has it, some of the WGI cameras are not bad for the price.

I use the 6mp, they upgraded this year to the micro versions. I have never had issues with my WGI's the last 2 seasons well July-January x2. But my wildviews just dont have crisp pictures and enough settings and technology to take the pics that make them want I need, but they were really cheap- the pic of the 10pt in the middle of the pic was from my 5mp wildview.

the one that took the pics of the 8pt and 3 and 10pt was last years bigger version in black. Easy to use and takes good enough pictures to put in a frame after you bag the deer smile

I just bought a 10mp also WGI and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT, the pictures are crisp, tons of settings and I got mine on clearence for $100 some places are still selling them for $160. Its wifi capable. Oh and it has a picture/review screen on the inside! I can still get these if anyone is interested.... just lending a hand can beat $100 for a 10mp...

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.
    • smurfy
      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!
    • Wanderer
      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.
    • leech~~
      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆

      Still waiting for global warming to ditch my Lazer Mag, always in the truck for thick, virgin ice.    Don't know if it's possible, or advisable, but thought I would throw a 8" K drill bit on it to lighten it up. Should be an adapter for such a conversion. Careful what you wish for, probably rip my arm off with a shredding combo like that 😂

      Leech I still have my old jiffy gas auger mainly for sentimental reasons. I haven’t used it for 3 years now. The only time I start it up is in the garage just to hear that pop pop pop sound lol   I will never go back and have no regrets going electric. Huge weight saver and with an extension will go through any thickness of ice. Starts first pull every time lol    we were fishing 2 weeks ago Swiss cheesing a slough here in SD on 4” of ice when someone else tried to fire up their gas auger and my buddies and I looked at each other almost in disbelief that someone was still using a gas auger.   pros and cons for sure but I think electric has more pros than cons with advancements lately     
    • smurfy
      any ice thickness reports..........especially on smaller not heavily fished lakes???????   chances are i wont be up till after christmas anyway, but............
    • leech~~
      Let me know when you go again.  I'll being my crossbow and take out the Deer when you kick them up!  😁
