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...

      We bring a weather and an FM radio. Cell phone coverage is sporadic, but you can find a signal almost anywhere (but usually it originates from Canada). Bad weather can come in a hurry, so it is nice to be able to know what is coming in advance.

      Do you know anyone who reloads? Ammo has been bought up with the civil unrest currently going on.

      I would agree with James about tough bite. The last few days have been tough. You wont see those mayflies in Big Bay, because they all hatched last week. We have had high heat no wind to go with mayflies,then fish flies so I think that explains the problem. It will get better soon as minnows become primary food source for eyes. Wont see you out there for a while as I have to leave for a week. Good Luck !!

      I may not get a chance to fish Leech before this fall, but I still really liked reading your report Joe.  Thank you for posting.

      One more question about communication and weather alerts on eastern Rainy Lake.   We could occasionally get  an AT&T signal, especially after we had signed up for the Canadian signal.  We were about 16 miles east of the visitor center, and at the Kemp Channel entrance.  The signal strength kinda depended on weather conditions and time of day.   I am looking at the possibility of getting a weather alert radio.  It states:  Public Alert Certified Weather Radio, Receives all 7 NOAA Weather Channel and Reports.  It is also an AM/FM radio.  Does this actually work in the mid-lake area, or would you recommend something different?

      Ive been up since Friday. Until today ive been out in short stints hour here or there each day. Sometimes just graphing areas looking for pods of fish. I caught a few fish each time but considering the thick pods I fished it was tough to get them to go. This morning I finally got out and hit it a bit harder. Ive had zero luck dragging lindys through these fish. Ive gone to camping on them with slip bobbers and leeches. 15-18 feet. The bite definitely hinges on getting some wave action from the wind and that's been tough to come by. There was a window this morning where it was an alright chop and I was able to get 4 in that 14.5-16" range. I tossed back a couple that were about 19 3/4. I'd rather eat a 15" personally. But again I was on carpets of fish and it was pick one off here and there. I fished 4 different reefs for those fish. Lots of Fish flies. So annoying. I did not see substantial evidence of any may flies. I'll be up most of the next 10 days. I'd think there bite would pick up soon.

      On the south end...  Lots of limits of nice walleyes this week with plenty of larger slot fish (19.5" - 28") and trophy walleyes (over 28").  Schools of fish all around the lake.  From the Lighthouse and Morris Point Gap area which is adjacent to Pine Island to Zippel Bay to reefs and mud near Long Point and Rocky Point all producing.  Garden Island area also holds nice schools of walleyes.  The go to presentation is pulling spinners with crawlers or leeches at 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Some anglers are doing well trolling crankbaits as well on lead core line or downriggers.  Nice schools of walleyes also staged over deep mud.  Some fish are shallow, 7- 15', other fish holding in 23 - 31'.  Hammered gold, gold/glow, pink, and orange hot colors this week.       On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon anglers catching some good fish as the season opened on July 1st.  Fishing holes in the river with a 3 ounce no roll sinker and sturgeon rig loaded with crawlers and/or frozen shiners.   Nice smallies in rocky areas.  Pike are also active cruising weedy bays, bay mouths and current breaks.  Walleyes hanging out on flats and can be caught with crawler harnesses or trolling crankbaits. Up at the NW Angle...  Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake staying and fishing in MN waters.  There are shuttle services available and fishing for multi species has been excellent.  Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for options.   Excellent fishing for walleyes, pike and bass continue.  Schools of walleyes on structure, over sand and on mud.  Nice walleyes 8 - 17' on the sand or 25 - 28' around structure.  The best presentation is drifting and trolling spinners with crawlers or a minnow.  Pike and smallmouth bass active in weedy bays.  Bucktails for pike retrieved slow working well.
