Recommended Posts

ANYFISH2

Post up some updates of how your season is going.  

How many deer are you seeing?

How is your group fairing?

Pics are highly asked for, camps, deer, hunting party, and anything else you have.

Let share with each other.

 

I am not hunting this morning do to funeral for one of my uncles.  I did receive a message that my son was able to see his first chase this morning.  Unfortunately, it was a chase and little to no shot presented it's self to the 10yr old.

Good to all.

I returned to camp about 4pm this evening and my daughter and I set from then till dark, no deer.

The rest of the present party, Amanda and Isaac seen a 6, spike, and a doe this morning Billy blanked on the day.  Looks like a lot of activity late this week according the cameras, just didn't work out today.

The Boy was pretty excited to see a buck chasing a doe this morning, a little bummed about it not stopping for him.

I'm sure @monstermoose78 can appreciate this. Watch for ticks.

I field dressed two deer today and both of them were full of wood ticks and deer ticks.

Congratulations to brother moose!  Nice deer.

Isaac and I were blanked all day.  Amanda and Abigail jumped 2 deer on Thier way out this afternoon.  Later Abigail finally got an opportunity to fire a shot tonight.  A fawn hung around until well after dark keeping the ladies in Thier stand.  We looked a little for blood, but didn't pick any up tonight.  We will be back out looking in the morning.  Abigail is a mess right now!

I had an opportunity at a buck on opening morning and passed as it was a younger deer but had some potential and then sunday morning saw a young buck come by with a unique rack of one side spike and the other 3 points.  Also saw 8 does opener morning all by themselves and all small...finally saw 3 does together come into the field right at the end of shooting time Sunday eve.  Great weekend and hopefully my patience will pay off.

We went 2 for 5 on opening weekend with one small buck and a big Doe. I hate sitting on stand in this warm weather trying to stay awake! :sleep: Give me 5" inches of snow and colds temps and I'm good all day! :)

4 Wolves sighted by one member on his stand and we must of counted at least 45-55 Deer in the ditches Friday night on the way up. White knuckle driving all the way. 99% were Doe's.

Two weekends to go and hopefully it cools off! ;)

Unfortunately, no sign of Abby hitting her deer last night not speck of blood.  Oh well it happens, and it was clean.  I felt so bad for her I decided to miss my own this morning while looking for hers.  Still haven't figured out how to shoot a moving deer!. Been a long time since I missed with a firearm.  Oh well, there is still time.

For the weekend 8 deer where seen all are safe for now.  All from one stand location. 3 bucks, 3 does and 2 fawns.

That sucks well I was going to hunt one of my 601 metro spots for a doe tonight I work 3rd shift and i just got home and my buddy texted me that he shot one at 7 in my public land 601 spot! He said it was a nice 8 pointer. We ended up not finding it! Tracked it for 3 hours!

So just got a call he went back out and was talking to a guy in the parking lot and said that he couldn't find his and the guy goes well I seen one on his way out and told him where he seen it. Now here's the dilemma antler broke off and not as big as he thought. Deer is not the direction we last seen blood but it is possible. Said the deer isn't really stiff yet. I can't really go vac there to help him. But if it is the deer he shot. If he shot it at 740 I would say how far we followed blood and where he found it from we last found blood and the shot that he lived for awhile I told him best case scenario is that he lived as long as possible. He cut it open and said it wasn't too bloated. I dunno I told him to field dress it. What do you think he should do? I told him bring it to one of the butcher shops in town and explain to them what happens I would think they would be able to tell the best for the meat?

Well he called the butcher shop and they think he should be ok. After he field dressed it he said he hardly smelt at all. The butcher shop said he should be fine and bring it in and they will look at it. Glad he got it.

      that can be nasty with no handle

      I put my lazer bit on my dewalt brushless the other day with a homemade adapter (piece of pipe and a bolt) tryed it out the other day and was amazed, very smooth setup and since I have the max XR kit I have the nice lithium battery’s ( 2 and 4 ah) so I’m set for first ice drilling. Super light setup. Only downside is I don’t have a size handle for the drill so I just have to be mindful and not break my wrist.

      Just checked the ice this afternoon and Shoe has 2.5" of ice and is 100% ice covered with some river current areas.  Summer access is no longer open.    I will be starting to ice fish as soon as I am done deer hunting in front of my house.    I predict a limit of walleyes first night out.     Don

      Saw those at Scheels in St. Cloud this afternoon.  Light!  The sticker shock blew back my hat a little but there’s always at least 1 significant upgrade to the ice fishing arsenal every year.  It’s not my upgrade yet but maybe later.  I was checking for a drill adapter for my new to me 8 inch Nils bit.  I like the 6 so much on the drill but sometimes I want an 8.   Anyone have an extra laying around?!

      Sounds terrific.   Having spent my career in the Tech field I am always cautious as to what startups are claiming.  But more power to them, I hope that they can achieve everything they are aiming for.    15 ms seems really fast.   It will be great if so.      Note, claiming a lot more than can be delivered is not limited to startups.    I have run into it many times inside an established tech power.     Fortunately, we are only like a half mile from the fiber on 24 so our DSL works fine...   Before that we had access.  Before that we had 26k dial up.

      Here you go. Took this on the way out of town today. Hopefully, you can zoom in on it!

      its nice and light.  sold other battery. deal with it. put 5.5 cans of soup in a plastic bag and lift it.  that's the difference

      Not quoted numbers!  Lets see the whole unit with each on a scale pal! 🤨

      15 ms round trip from/return to space is what SpaceX is claiming now. Pretty impressive if it pulls off.   The issue with Hughes is the position of orbit of the satellite. Hughes satellites are in Geo-synchronous orbit with the earth, which means the satellite's orbit moves at the exact same rate as the earth turns. That way the satellite remains at relatively the same spot over the earth. The trouble with geo-sync orbits is that they are a long ways away. 22,500 miles, give or take. That's a long ways for a signal to round-trip. And there's not really a high-demand capacity solution.   The new constellation model of internet satellites uses a bunch, like say 4000, of really small satellites, about the size of a desk. These are in low-earth orbit, only 150 miles from earth by comparison. Capacity is handled by allowing satellites to share data between themselves. So if one satellite is overloaded, it will off-load data throughput to another close-by satellite via peer-to-peer communication. It's a pretty cool engineering model.   As you can probably tell, this is in-line with what I do for a living. But i am pretty hyped about the possibilities for people like us, who will never have optic cable strung to our remote location.
