No deer yet for us, the snow is good to show how many deer walked down our footprints!

My Ripley jinx is still going strong.  Everyone in camp has seen multiple deer except me.   Two nice 8 pointers have hit the dirt but all other small bucks and does are still walking.

I’m almost considering seeing how many days I can deer hunt this year and not see one! :D :cry:

Standing corn around here is hurting us fairly good. We did see deer last night. Moll decided to pass on a small buck. 

Lost most of our snow cover overnight with the rain.

good luck guys.

The kids still have tags as they havent gone out since yesterday morning.  I guess they didnt want to hunt in the rain.  Or wake up this morning!  Fools.  Mom and Dads tags are now full with a doe and a spike.

Well the jinx is off thanks to a fawn.  I’m pretty sure it’s mama got shot on their way toward me though.  At least I know my eyes still work.

And I think I saw @leech~~out in the boonies when I went for a Wanderabout.  If it was, we could exchange some parking tips.

Not sure where you were but if you saw an Orange Popsicle in a tree that was me this morning.:cry: I had every stitch of clothing I brought on this morning but the breeze coming off the swap just wouldn't stop! I've been warmer fishing on my sled on Burntside at 10- then today! :crazy:

Not all bad, my son put down some meat heading to the butcher in the morning.  :)

Congrats to your boy. :cool:

Cass County Road 55.  If it wasn’t you it was your brother from another mother.  Or one of the Wahlberg boys.

My wonderful weekend was ruined by a crazy neighbor that decided my hunting land was his and the DNR had to be called out to deal with the drunk...well they could have gotten him for many issues but gave him a hunter harassment fine for $500.  Well that was at 11am and by 4 pm he was pretty well lit up and came to the property line and started yelling profanities at me for a good 15-20 minutes wanting me to come to his house and find out what happens and "I can see you in the tree up there in your orange suit!!"  Which started getting me concerned so I called the DNR to come back out.  Well they caught him walking across our land in the direction of my truck and in his possession was a bowie knife, hatchet, and a machete hiding in his pants!  He was arrested and spent under 48 hours in jail and was released.  Needless to say I can no longer hunt that land for the fear of being hunted while hunting.  Sad as I feel the psycho won by getting what he wanted and the land that I hunt to himself.  Puts a sour taste in my mouth and wanting to hunt...hopefully I can get rid of the taste but Sunday hunting just wasn't as enjoyable as it usually is.

when you are surrounded by swamp and ag land that you have no access to, I guess he feels that since he lives there full time, he should be able to have free rein of the area.  I guess I will now go north to the Crosslake area and try to see what I can put in the freezer.  thanks for all the comments!  It is a sad deal to see hunting land become off limits for unforeseen reasons but now I must adapt and maybe I will end up finding a new gem although there aren't many corn fed deer in Crosslake as there is in Princeton! Good Luck this weekend to all!!

110 acres mostly ag land...it is my buddies land that he has reserved all the hunting right to me.  After the incident though he said just give the guy his space as it isn't worth getting shot over and he doesn't want that to happen on his land.

There sure isn't a lot of action on the deer hunting portion of this message board; compared to the fishing part.  I get it, it is a fishingminnesota.com   Do people go to a different site for hunting ?

No, you’re in the right spot for deer hunting.  It’s just that season is pretty much over and ice fishing is heading into a fever pitch.

How was your season?  Or are you still at it?

I know season is pretty much done; checked in throughout the rifle season and not a lot of activity.  My 12 yr son took 2 does this year from Ely area; it was fun to see.

      I’m really hoping to make it up there on Saturday. Might try a couple different spots, pending success rate.

      Also depends on if your married or not, or want to stay that way! 😄  At my buddies old place since he had an out house we would just bring water and start using it when we could get the heat up with a fire place and a few elc, heaters as to not die. Then we were good! 😉

      Hello everyone,    I know I'm new to this website, but I've been fishing for a while now. A few years ago I picked up a Black Betty 6061 for ice fishing and I bent the handle trying to put it into a Frabil hard case on an exceptionally cold day (dumb me). I wrote a few emails to 13 Fishing/called 5 times and explained the situation and they told me I would have to pay for my parts. I said that was fine because it was my fault (even though I thought the handle should be a little sturdier).   Flash forward a 2 weeks later and I have my new handle. I took the old handle off and put the new one on, but the retaining screw that holds the washer for the nut in place wouldn't fit. The new handle 13 Fishing sent to me has a screw hole tapped too small. I called 13 and they were not aware of a screw size change. I asked them to send me a screw that would fit the handle and they said okay. 2 Weeks later, no screw. I called them again and explained that I had been over a month without this reel operational and no one had sent anything. I told them that I had a fishing trip coming up in the next two days and they could either overnight the screw to me or send it to the location I was going to be fishing. They said they would send it and it didn't come before the trip, nor did it come after the trip I just came back from.    They either sent me the wrong handle that doesn't fit my old BB, or they changed the dimensions of their design. I'm just trying to get my reel operational and it seems like such an easy thing. I'm probably going to go down to the store and just grab a small screw that will fit, but it seemed too easy for 13 Fishing to send me the part. How should I deal with 13 Fishing now? Has anyone else dealt with this issue before? I really liked 13 Fishing's gear, but if this is what happens when something goes wrong, I may end up turning elsewhere for the $$.

      I always use a dead stick next to a jigging hole.  The water is clear so you can get pretty high off the bottom to bring them in and then lower it to them.  Red hook on the dead stick during the day and anything glow after dark if you want but I use pink.  I usually use fat heads or rainbow with good success.  My go to is a pink and blue rattle spoon or red.  Just off of structure during the day with a nice easy move of 15 feet or so to the top of the structure morning or night.

      Depends on the year.  Typically early May.   Some years you can get away with earlier....

      GPS!  Helping my son move into a new house this Sat or that sounds like something to try. Didn't really want to spend my last weekend of Walleye season lifting craap up and down stairs! 😟  Good Luck.
