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...

      Algae!   Ever since the zebra mussels have gotten into Whitefish the floating mats of algae have been a nuisance, but this year is terrible.  I hate that crap.  You can't troll without it getting all over your line and lure.  Not fun to swim in either!  My parents have even mentioned leaving the chain it bothers them so much.     Does anyone know if this is the blue-green algae that is toxic to dogs?   No chance I'll fish during the day this weekend, it's nuts out there right now.

      Headed to Brainerd Area July 9-11 coming from Colorado to visit friends. Well actually my girlfriend is I am tagging along to hopefully catch some fish with my flyrod And or jigs. Seeking advice on which lakes and tactics and anything else helpful to help maximize fishing  time in your state. I will have access to a canoe on Hubert Lake. Any and all advice would be much appreciated if anyone is into flyfishing Stillwater and would like to go or show me some pointers on your home waters That would be awesome thanks looking forward to any responses.

      I just returned home from a sweltering 4 day trip on Vermilion. In all of the years that I have fished Lake Vermilion, I don't ever remember it being so hot for so long. We had no top on our boat and once that sun got overhead, it was game over for us. The heat was just too unbearable. We heard that a couple of people were hauled off in ambulances due to heat stroke. But now, for the fishing report. During the 4 days that we fished, 2 were great and 2 were not so great. We fished the same spots basically, all 4 days. Nothing changed weather wise and, except for the heat, conditions seemed ideal. We saw only very sparse mayflies with no slicks anywhere. We found the walleyes in 18'-32' of water. When we were right on top of the reef in the rocks, we caught some real nice smallmouth and jumbos right along with the walleyes. Our best smallmouth was 18.5", our best jumbo was 11.5", and our best walleye was 26". We used both crawlers and leeches and I could not define a preference for one over the other. We ate walleyes while there and brought home our limit for 3 fishermen. None of the walleyes that we kept had mayflies. Surprisingly, the jumbos that came from the same reefs were full of mayflies. The areas that we fished were snaggy and I found that a 1oz bottom bouncer and a teardrop floating jig(blue and white) with a 3'-4' leader greatly reduced snags and satisfied the fish. We generally fished till about 1:00 when the heat became unbearable. We fished Big Bay, Portage Bay, and Fraser Bay. Big Bay and Fraser Bay produced all of our fish. We tried slip bobbers on top of reefs at varying depths and basically struck out. On Wednesday, we were fishing Fraser Bay when a smaller boat with a man and a woman came trolling by us next to an island(Alepo, if you must know). She hooked up and proceeded to fight what appeared to be a big fish. The fight continued and we finally decided it was a muskie. It was a joke watching these very nice people trying to land this fish because, they had no net and were completely unprepared to land this fish. She brought the fish up beside the boat and the man cradled his arms under the fish and lifted it up. That fish slapped him in the side of the head 5 or 6 times on the way into the boat. It was difficult to keep from laughing. We congratulated them and moved away only to see the man pick the fish up and heave it over the back of the boat. I went back and, sure enough, the big fish was on it's back and was belly up. We asked if they wanted us to revive it and, so, we did. She was mishandled and it took 10 minutes or better to get her to where she kicking pretty good so we could let her go. She swam away and disappeared. The fish was 45" long by their measurement and it was caught on a small spinner with a sucker minnow for bait. They said they were fast trolling this set-up for northerns. All in all, it's always great to be at the lake in spite of the weather. We have a second trip planned and reserved for late September. I'm pretty sure the weather will have cooled by then. Good Fishing, MarkB😀                                                                                                               My best walleye of the trip

      Good morning resplendent.. With all the warm weather we have had the walleyes should be Biting on the reefs by this weekend. The forecast is for 80-85 next week but I would like to see some rain up here as it’s pretty dry in the bush. Good luck and enjoy your trip.
    • Resplendent
      I plan to lake fishing next week too, hope the weather will be nice by that time.

      Did you have much for floating weeds or moss in the stretch you were fishing?  I’ve had lots this year, the same as last.  Been enough of a pain I’ve quit fishing it.   Always love the vids!
    • tacklejunkie
      I haven't seen any reports locally this year. The other forums all have updated reports.
