Best of luck to you both!  Getting a kid their first deer is usually a better felling than getting one yourself.

I’ll be coasting a bit, that’s for sure.  The kids will probably cap off the freezers in the next couple weeks anyway.  If they don’t,  I might take out the smoke pole and make use of that management tag I bought.

Not at all. Just keep the motor noise and spinning wheels to a minimum.  Please!   😅

 

Thanks.

Lots of deer seen Friday night!

 

i think we have 8 gun deer hunters in camp and I just heard one of them got a spike.

 

i just settled in for a short evening now sit.

Had a good morning on the water though so my day is complete.

Pretty quiet by us today, not nearly the shooting of a normal opener.

We managed two small yearling does.  Kids are still of'er, Isaac did get to put a doe in scope, only a butt so no shot.

Love those deer pics!  

 

No more deer were harmed by our group today.  They’re seeing deer but waiting for bucks and a little bit better ones.  Hunters Choice and everyone wants to fill their own tag with what they want at this point.

 

No bow sit for me today.  The duck hunt took just a little longer to fill out, then we got some rain.

Pictures make me think I should get back into the woods this time of year! Nice to see families sharing the experience!

Our camp of 3 saw 3 does and I shot a 6 point yesterday morning. Not much shooting up north in our area. Friends within 4 miles of me got a 6, 8 and a 9. Nothing seen today.

Our weekend ended with 2 small does taken.  A total of 4 does, 1 spike buck, and an unknown sex seen for the weekend.  

Very quiet in our neck of the woods.  I was very proud of how hard my son Isaac(12) hunted.  He was on stand for all, but 6 hrs, in 3 days.  My daughter(14), who not a morning person, hunted but didn't see anything all three afternoons.  

Unfortunately, I believe our season is over now as the hockey season starts this weekend, with games both days.  

 

Good luck to all, the rest of the season.

Relatively quiet opener where we hunt in 157. A fair amount of shooting in the area on Saturday morning but tapered off in the afternoon and Sunday was very quiet.  I saw two flags, my dad saw one, but nobody in our group of 7 has fired a shot.

I was hunting in Northern MN west of Bemidji. (210).

Saturday--Saw a good sized buck with a small rack saturday; wanted to take him, but he didn't give me the right shot.  (he just wagged his bum at me and wouldn't turned even a quartering view much less broadside...)

Took son out for his first time observing in the stand--We saw a spike (that was probably barely legal).  He was a beauty but not the right one to harvest.  He was 20 yds from me and unbothered/unfazed by grunting...   Son is now pumped to take gun safety next year and be ready to join the ranks next year!

 

I harvested a nice buck Sunday morning that was just having a gentle stroll down the path (I think he may have been the same nice buck with smaller rack from the day prior...--he'll be tasty and make a savoury stir-fry!)

 

(...and the family back at the house on Sat/Sun were observing lots of disinterested little sorority groups of baldies walking through and eating the plants without a seeming care for anything going on...)

 

My two cents:  None of the deer I obseved were behaving in the stereotypical "rut" like manner.   They were just sauntering care-free and seemingly oblivious...   I think we're still pre-rut...  Next weekend could get better (...or just colder and wetter, based on the forecasts.  Happy hunting, all.)

Seen quite a few deer near Warroad but none taken by us. Most were tails or no shot opportunities.

Well good that you saw some up on your new land.  Are you guys done for the year?

No, we'll spend another 4-6 days in the woods.

      I would agree with the above answers, that the line of rivets are creating dirty water for you.  I would move to the left as well.  Also, I would guess you may need to lower the transducer some as well.  Get the transducer as low as you can without it making a large roostertail at speed.  If you have a good square or quality straight edge at home, place vertically along bottom of the hull, extending out from the stern.  The top of the straight edge should cover at least the bottom 2/3s of the transducer on the inside (motor side), maybe more if the pitch of the hull is greater.  Transducer should also have a slight downwards angle from transom.
    • PRO-V
      That's great. I feel the same about mine.😁
    • Borch
      Well I don't have any inside info on a hot bite but have heard it's still a jig and minnow bite on the edge of flats in 7-12 of water.  If the wind is pounding into a flat I would recommend heading shallow and trolling cranks.  This would be a good option to at least find a spot to slow down and jig the edge once you've cover water and find fish.  I've done well on these flats all summer long if the wind is blowing into them.    Good luck!
    • Squirrelhawke
      this is what mine looks like

      I forgot about the speed issues with these transducers.   I also have a high speed dual frequency transducer mounted.  I run it as my primary and do a split screen when I want to see the side imaging.  Generally the side imaging works best under 6 mph with 2-3 mph being optimal.
    • h8go4s
      I agree you need to move it left to get away from the line of rivets. Then it's a matter of adjusting vertically and tilting it front to back/ up or down. The newer monster size SI ducers can be tough to get positioned right. That's why lots of guys run a second 2d ducer with a splitter cable which automatically switches in when the 2d signal from the SI ducer is lost. My boat is a Alumacraft Classic 165 tiller 50hp, top speed 29 mph. I was able to get position tweaked on it so I have SI, DI and 2d on plane, but it took a lot of adjusting. I resorted to mounting  a camera on a mini tripod and holding it over the transom to video the ducer underway. That helped, but still a PITA. Good luck.
    • Borch
      I would try moving it about 1-3 inches to the left.  It's sitting right behind a row of rivets which would cause turbulence and issues with readings.  You might also be picking up prop turbulence in that location that close to the centerline and on that side.  Seems the side imaging transducers are more sensitive for placement due to the issues your having and blocking the signal one side or the other.   The other side of the outboard could be a better option unless you have something else mounted there to help with prop turbulence.

      Awesome!! Looks a bit spoiled maybe!!!👍🤣

      New 2020 1875 Pro Guide. Helix 12 Mega SI graph. Can't read bottom when up on plane. I was going to adjust the transducer and this is what I found. Isn't the first rule in transducer placement to put it where there is "clean", undisturbed water flow?? It is below the bottom of the boat, maybe too far. It's a side imaging transducer so I feel the riggers wanted it close to the center of the boat. Where have others placed a side imaging transducer and have it read bottom when up on plane? I don't think you can move it closer to the center line. If you move it to the left of it's current position, the is the power strake in the front 1/3 of the boat. Any help is appreciated!!
    • Hookmaster
      There is one pump for both live wells and the bait well up front. I'll ask the dealer when I take it in to get fixed.
