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.

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.

      The Department of Natural Resources invites visitors to Mille Lacs Kathio State Park to join members of the Minnesota Archaeological Society on Sept. 28 for Archaeology Day. Attendees will learn about the region’s 9,000 years of human history, and how this contributed to the designation of the park as a National Historic Landmark. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the park picnic area. “Demonstrations, activities and displays will advance everyone’s knowledge of the park and Minnesota history, no matter what their age,” said Kris Erickson, park manager. “The park’s beautiful fall colors will offer an added perk.” During the day, visitors can: Watch how “flint knapping” transforms a piece of stone into a tool. See the way prehistoric pottery was created. Observe an excavation where artifacts were discovered. Examine a spear, and watch a spear-throwing demonstration. Learn to shoot an arrow with instructors from the Archery in the Park program. Minnesota Archaeological Society publications as well as books and pamphlets from the Minnesota Historical Society, Maritime Heritage Minnesota, St. Cloud State University and other sources will be available. Archeology films will run continuously in the Interpretive Center. The DNR is sponsoring the event, along with the Minnesota Archaeological Society and St. Cloud State University. There is no charge for Archaeology Day activities. A vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks. Vehicle permits may be purchased at the park office. The cost of a daily permit is $7. An annual permit, which allows entry into all state parks for one year from the date of purchase, is $35. Mille Lacs Kathio State Park is located 8 miles north of Onamia, and 14 miles south of Garrison on U.S. Highway 169. For more information, call the park at 320-532-3523.

      Minnesotans interested in helping the Department of Natural Resources determine how Game and Fish Fund dollars are spent now have through Friday, Oct. 11, to apply to serve on a review committee.  Minnesota’s Game and Fish Fund is the fiscal foundation for many of the state’s core natural resource management functions. Upwards of $110 million is deposited into this fund annually. The DNR needs at least 12 people to serve on the fisheries oversight and wildlife oversight committees (a minimum of 6 for each committee). About half of the current members’ terms expire on Saturday, Dec. 14. Appointees will be responsible for reviewing the agency’s annual Game and Fish Fund report in detail. People who want to serve should have a strong interest in natural resource management, how it is funded, financial review and working together. The goal is for the committee to have members from across the state with diverse perspectives and backgrounds. DNR Commissioner Sarah Strommen will appoint committee members for two-year terms. Applications are available on the DNR website, along with more information about the fund, expenditure reports and oversight committee reports. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Counties collect Payment in Lieu of Taxes for state-owned land not subject to property tax Minnesota’s 87 counties are the beneficiaries of $35.9 million in state payments that help support public lands.  The state’s Department of Revenue recently distributed annual payments for Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT), a property tax relief program that offsets tax revenues not collected on public lands. Counties have received PILT payments annually since 1979 in place of property taxes on 5.6 million acres of state-managed lands and 2.8 million acres of county-managed tax-forfeited lands. Money for the payments comes from the state’s general fund. Every county in Minnesota has public lands within its borders and receives an annual PILT payment. In July, counties received anywhere from $21,443 in Red Lake County up to $3,792,842 in St. Louis County. “PILT is an important and consistent revenue source for counties, but the benefits of public lands for Minnesotans go far beyond these annual payments,” said Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Sarah Strommen. “Public lands support local economies through timber and mineral production, provide space for outdoor recreation and tourism, create habitat for wildlife, and help provide clean air and water.” The state makes PILT payments on public lands including state parks and forests, scientific and natural areas and wildlife management areas, school trust lands, Consolidated-Conservation lands as well as county-managed tax-forfeited lands. Even lands that could never be developed and placed on the tax rolls are included in PILT calculations used to compensate counties. Payment rates vary according to land type and range from $2 per acre, to three-quarters of 1 percent of appraised value. Payment for Lake Vermilion Soudan Underground Mine State Park is assessed at 1.5 percent of the appraised value of the land. A breakdown of PILT payments for each county is posted on the Minnesota Department of Revenue website. More information about Minnesota’s public land portfolio, PILT payments, and a brief history of major public land transactions is available on the DNR’s public lands page.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is reminding lake property owners to carefully check boats and trailers, docks and lifts, and all other water-related equipment for invasive species when removing equipment for seasonal storage.  This is important, as several new zebra mussel confirmations in recent years were initially reported by people removing docks, boats and boat lifts. “These late summer/early fall confirmations are the result of Minnesotans being more vigilant and checking for invasive species when taking equipment out of the water,” said DNR Invasive Species Unit supervisor Heidi Wolf. It’s especially important to follow Minnesota’s law and keep docks and boat lifts out of the water for at least 21 days before putting them into another body of water. This state law is central to the training DNR-permitted lake service provider businesses receive. Anyone transporting a dock or lift from the adjacent shoreline property to another location for storage or repair may need a permit, to help prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. The DNR recommends these steps for lake property owners: Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Hire DNR-permitted lake service provider businesses to install or remove boats, docks, lifts and other water-related equipment. These businesses have attended training on Minnesota’s aquatic invasive species laws and many have experience identifying and removing invasive species. Contact your area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if you think you have discovered an invasive species that has not already been confirmed in your lake. More information is available on the aquatic invasive species page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
