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.

      Its even better for smallmouth bass.  Our rivers are loaded with them and there's very little pressure.

      Almost too nice if weather yesterday and today in this area.  If I were out today with the southern winds/gusts to 30, I’d spend most of the day on my feet.  Good day to still hunt.

      I want to hear details

      You're quite lucky.

      Although I moved away from the area over 10 years ago I can say without reservation that the rum river has fantastic walleye fishing. There's some pigs in there besides numbers. I've also had really good bluegill fishing there too!

      Any news after day one?

      i was told that the owner of the bait shop in deer river, george passed away earlier this week. story is they figure the  kids will just close the doors. i'll miss the guy. he may have been a bit more expensive, but his extended hours and honor system made it worth the stop there. one just doesnt see that no more. i'd call him if he wasnt going to be there he'd have what i wanted in his outside fridge and off i went.   and he always was willing to talk..........alot!!!!!!!!!!

      MRGC, Welcome to the forum.    Not to take this off topic but I have been going by your range there on the end of Monti for over 30 years.  I have always wondered how long do you think your going to be able to keep it open so close to the approaching town before they drive you guys out with safety and noise complaints?  It looks like you guys have done a lot of work with the back stop and other improvements.   Thinking long-term have you thought about looking for a piece of land for a new range before the Anti's try and get you out?   Just a question I have thought about all these years.  Good luck, hope you guys hang for another 30!   🙂

      Welcome to the area!  Blue Lake and Green Lake are panfish lakes close by with the occasional walleye to be had in either but with more consistently from Green.  Briggs Lake chain is another good option for both crappies and walleyes and with it being part of the river system some size can be had for both.  Go a little south from there and you can hit up the Annandale area lakes which have walleyes and crappies.  Good Luck and let us know how ya do!
