Deer Hunting Forums?


Recommended Posts

I apologize if this is against forum policy; but are there any popular deer hunting forums?  Specifically Minnesota deer hunting?  Would love to see this one pick up

We can start making it happen if you are willing to? I will post what I am seeing and how my old man is doing. I did see a nice buck hit on highway 95 this morning still had his rack when I went by.

My son has been hunting almost everyday in the Isanti area.  He has one nice buck he's playing hide and seek with that has been showing up right at sunrise/sunset.  But daytime movement has really dropped that last few days.  We have a crp field that was loaded with does every night over the last few weeks...Friday they stopped showing up. I hunted in Turtle Lake Wi yesterday both morning and evening sit. Saw nothing in the morning except a fisher, saw 2 does, 2 fawns close and saw one very large buck 300 yards away walking the edge of bean field, looked like at one point he was working on a scrape but couldn't see for sure.

Frustration has been my season so far.

 

5 trips to the woods, 1 trip with deer.??

 

In transit from kids activities, I have been driving by/scouting two fields I hunt on or near.  EVERY SINGLE TIME there are deer near my stand locations!

 

Man I have been playing the wind, scent control the best I know how?  Not sure if my entry is somehow giving me up or just bad timing.

 

Plenty of deer around, just not while I am on stand.

They know when you're in there.  Its time to dig a tunnel and approach from beneath or parachute in from a helicopter.

Sounds like, Mom needs to take the kids while Dad takes the car in for an oil change.   A few times a week! 😅

Yeah, that would work if she wasnt a dispatcher working 12 hr shifts.  And running the kids is really the only domestic thing I am any good at!

Few deer on the trail cams near Ely.  Going to do some trail brushing next weekend; hope to see more pics!  Haven't seen any grouse while out in the woods either yet.

Friday was my last sit until Halloween- and oh was it exciting must of been one hot doe in the area...I saw to many deer to count, with all out war between 2 bucks in a standing bean field. I had does and fawns flying around my stand with around 6 bucks all trying to take part in the festivities I was watching. Never did let an arrow go, but just an epic night. This was all in Wisconsin. My son hunted around Isanti and was seeing many deer along with a few bucks moving right before sunset.  Scrapes are starting to appear in both areas we hunt. That cold front really got them on their feet.

 

We are headed to Montana on Wednesday for our first father/son elk and deer trip.  Already watching the clock. We loaded the trailer and all our gear yesterday. tic toc now with 2 more days of work and then waiting for the school bell to go off at 2:58pm!  We are both jacked along with my buddy who is hunting with us.  Can't wait to be on the mountain Saturday morning!!

Had a nice doe and a yearling at the bird feeder today.  Haven't seen the neighborhood buck in a  couple days...   A small 4 on each side.   

 

They have pretty much cleaned up all the apples on the ground...

      Sorry I haven't posted recently. We have been out hunting pretty regularly. What a weird weather pattern this fall. Guess the weather would be as abnormal as everything else in 2020. Where we hunt in central MN, we have frozen over the small and medium water twice, and then warmed it back open twice. Record snowfall from October is gone in November. With this unusual weather, we have noticed a very irregular migration. Gusty WNW wind and cold days that we thought would be lights out were disappointing, and some good hunts happened on warm SE wind days that we didn't have high expectations. There are still plenty of mallard, bluebills, goldeneyes, buffies, and mergs north of us, but not much using the lakes around central MN right now. We are switching over to field hunting near town, as there are a lot of geese and mallards sitting in town and feeding in surrounding fields. Attached are some pics of our last couple weekends on the water. Hopefully some pics from field hunting with another report will follow after Thanksgiving. Good luck, stay safe, and happy Thanksgiving.

      I see that Highbanks on Fish lake has a few inches out in the narrows. Not sure if he is letting people out or not. Really need some below zero temps to lock things up.

      Looking at a few webcams, we are getting closer to ice-up:    
    • Coleman
      I'm assuming they were panfish beds.  Just seems like such a random spot.  Wish I had an underwater camera with me, I would have checked them out when I first saw them.  
    • IceHawk
      Coleman were they panfish beds? Many times they will still be there the following year if not washed away.

      Eboni labrador retrievers was the kennel. Heard nothing but good things about smith farm labradors

      On the south end...  As we approach Thanksgiving, thin ice covers back bays and a portion of the big lake, otherwise known as Big Traverse Bay.   Roughly half of the lake is covered in ice with the rest open water.  Ice anglers are hoping for cold nights combined with low wind and no snow to create a good early sheet of ice.  Every year is different based on Mother Nature of course, but normally resorts will be able to get their smaller fish houses, called day houses, out around December 10th.  When the ice thickens, resorts will begin marking trails where there is the best ice.  Stay tuned... On the Rainy River...   The river is covered in most places with a layer of thin ice.  Most ice fishing is done on the main lake during the ice season where there isn't current.  With current in the river, most visitors will work through a resort for safety. Up at the NW Angle...  The Angle has a mix of iced over areas with open water in neck down areas.  The ice is forming nicely and the hopes are for colder weather to keep things moving along positively.  Resorts are ready for ice fishing!  A complete list of lodging and ice fishing packages available at www.fishingminnesota.com/Lodging

      Has anyone been out to check ice on any lakes in area. Heard there was 2-3 inches on strand. 
    • Coleman
      Just as a note, I got on the chain Saturday around noon.  Main lakes had a skim of ice, 1/2", shallow bodies(East lake) look like the ice was actually walkable, please don't take my word for that though.     Anyways, water temps were 34*.  I didn't fish much at all, just broke up enough ice to get some new data for mapping.  I did mark quiet a few fish, which is a plus.     On another note, has anyone else noticed the large group(15-20) of beds on Horseshoe just north of the meth hole, about 8-9FOW?  I noticed these this spring, and they're still there.  Thought it was kind of interesting they'd still be there even after all the boat traffic this year.
