Just saw this on facebook.... What do you guys think about last spring's pre-fawn #'s compared to what you saw this past fall?

I'd guess in my part of the unit I'd say they were a bit optimistic. That possibility was confirmed for me when I spoke with Marrett.

I'd say my post fawn densities would have been in the upper range of what the DNR said the pre-fawn were (i.e. about 12)

The area that I hunted the most I would say they have the fall density nailed on that spring density map 13-16 dpsm. With the very late spring we had, the recruitment wasn't great and the spring density didn't change much to the pre-hunt density IMO. Another area that I am very familiar with they say is in the 5-8 range, and I would put in the 1-4 range.

Yeah, just switch pre- to post- and I think it is accurate.

....then take in to account that the DNR believes that each doe recruits 1.9 fawns per year....and that in the spring we have many more does then bucks...so that their models show a spring 15 dpsm area in the spring transforming into a 34 dpsm area in the fall. 10 does and 5 bucks in the spring with each doe having 1.9 fawns makes a fall density of 34 dpsm. My hunch is the permits allocated should be a bit different when we have 34 fall dpsm compared to 15 dpsm.

      I’ll be on Birch Lake - Ely - in late July. Anyone familiar with good spots?

      We bring a weather and an FM radio. Cell phone coverage is sporadic, but you can find a signal almost anywhere (but usually it originates from Canada). Bad weather can come in a hurry, so it is nice to be able to know what is coming in advance.

      Do you know anyone who reloads? Ammo has been bought up with the civil unrest currently going on.

      I would agree with James about tough bite. The last few days have been tough. You wont see those mayflies in Big Bay, because they all hatched last week. We have had high heat no wind to go with mayflies,then fish flies so I think that explains the problem. It will get better soon as minnows become primary food source for eyes. Wont see you out there for a while as I have to leave for a week. Good Luck !!

      Unfortunately this forum has gone really quiet. All lake superior users moved to the Facebook group:(

      I may not get a chance to fish Leech before this fall, but I still really liked reading your report Joe.  Thank you for posting.

      One more question about communication and weather alerts on eastern Rainy Lake.   We could occasionally get  an AT&T signal, especially after we had signed up for the Canadian signal.  We were about 16 miles east of the visitor center, and at the Kemp Channel entrance.  The signal strength kinda depended on weather conditions and time of day.   I am looking at the possibility of getting a weather alert radio.  It states:  Public Alert Certified Weather Radio, Receives all 7 NOAA Weather Channel and Reports.  It is also an AM/FM radio.  Does this actually work in the mid-lake area, or would you recommend something different?
