2019 Season - What’d Ya See?

Short sit this morning but hey, I got out!  Hope to try sits this evening and tomorrow but I still have house projects to work on.

 

Got a few shots of adrenaline this morning so that was good!  Hearing, anticipating and actually seeing a couple was a nice start.  I assume they were a doe/fawn pair but couldn’t get a great look at em in brush.  Just passing by.

 

I was waiting on a buck anyway.  Fresh buck sign along this trail I was watching.

Went out Saturday morning. Couldn't get to my stands due to the monsoon season we are having, so I grabbed a chair and sat on the ground in some willows. Had a doe with a fawn come out shortly after shooting time. Then a small 1 year old buck. Then a bachelor group of 3 small 1 year old bucks. All the deer at one point were within 20 yards of me while sitting on the ground. Didn't kill anything but it was a good time.

After spending the past two nights catching up on yard work I figured a sit tonight was earned.  Plus the wind was just right enough for a spot I’ve been waiting to sit.

7 sightings tonight.  3 bucks, 1 doe and 3 I don’t knows.  The I don’t knows were on the other side of the creek and moving pretty quickly north, into the wind.  Didn’t seem any bigger than the others I saw.

 

The bucks were all basket 8’s, still inside the ears; the doe was probably a 1.5 year old too.  The bucks were 3/4 shed of velvet, some still hanging on.  The doe and one of the bucks were an easy 17 yard poke in my shooting lane.  I said I was going to take the first “adult” buck I saw this year but I guess I was kidding myself. I was enjoying the show too much.  All those deer will get shot around here in the gun season if seen and I’d have been happy with either the doe or the buck come December.  We’ll see if I regret passing.  I doubt it though.

Hmm, draw the bow or draw the phone?  Hmmm...  There are a couple dandies in the area so I think I’ll stick with the bow.

 

Management tag will be bought tomorrow.  I’d like to drop something by the end of the weekend.  Lofty goal maybe but they quit using the area once the leaves really drop so I should just git r done.

Last Saturday, my first sit I passed a young 10 point. Sunday night my son and I sat and saw 8 does and fawns. The fawns were in point blank shooting range but the caging all does just knew something wasn't right and hung back in the brush and slid away. We will be back this evening, and will get out this weekend as well.

Looks like I won’t git r dun in September like I hoped.  The 3 I don’t knows from Wednesday were spike, fork, six.  I’ve seen the same 6 bucks three times now.  Drew on the tall 8 but he wasn’t clear till 40 yards and I didn’t want to try that in the wind even though everything felt good.  

 

Another 8 magically appeared in the wide open at 20 yards while I was watching the little 6 below me.  The swirling wind gave me away to the little 6 and he trotted off a way.  The 8 kept looking at him and back under me to see what was up.  I couldn’t get drawn back on him before the 6 pulled him away.

 

Never thought I’d say it but I need more does. 😃

The spot has been drying up with the leaves falling.  Deer are moving later as they do.  I’ve enjoyed watching the deer on my sits but figured my deer hunts are already winding down.  I never did see a larger buck but heard the neighbor got one I’d been hoping for.

 

Tonight was the night to take one.  And I’m happy to have him.

      Hey, Rick if your going to start deleting posts.  Maybe you could start with miss quotes added by others. I never said this above but my name was added!      1 hour ago, leech~~ said: There is several year classes because 10s of thousands of dollars were dumped into stocking the lake   You seemed to like this persons rant thought! Even though he added nothing, made no points or any related information himself, but his own personal feelings to the conversation. Nice! 🤐   tfin HSOShow.com Family     Leech,   "In 1989, the tribe's commercial netters  registered a record 948,000 pounds of walleye."   And this years quota was just about back to that of 820,000.  So did they learn anything?   You posted this as if it makes a point but it has no bearing what so ever.  It seams that you're the one that can't seem to learn anything.  Stop using non related information to try to prove a point.  In 1989 the total lbs of fish in the lake may have been 1/100 of what it I this year.  So what if the Indians use it as a commercial fishery.  We took the whole country from the and use it for commercial everything all in the name of greed!  Pull your head out and realize that giving them a piece of water and letting them do with it what they want is a good thing and they are working with us to make it a well sustained fishery  But in order to do that you would have to be selfless for a second so let's not hold our breath waiting.

      Are you forgetting about the estimated 1,500,000 pounds of walleyes a year bootlegged  in the 90's?   The last of the stocked fish died off 7 or 8 years ago. This is all natural spawn now.
    • Rick
      Check those backwaters out. Lots of fish there. Just look for the cars parked.
    • bowhuntingboy1
      If the quota in the 90s was only 100kish more than it is now, that's a problem as it signifies they could potentially reach very near that quota. There is several year classes because 10s of thousands of dollars were dumped into stocking the lake, with the band funding about 2/3, which we should be grateful for. Still cost the state 28k and that is not a situation you want to have to keep a lake running. If we dont either have more huge, expensive stockings or stop tribal netting, red lake will again one day struggle.

      I do a lot of spearing and have never hear of a catch cover for a spear hole. my wifes house basically has the wood that was cut from the floor hinged to the floor as a cover??????
    • Rocky
      I am trying to find a catch cover type spear hole cover but cannot find one. Catch cover said they do not make one. I have seen them, just not sure where to get them. Any help would be greatly appreciated
    • leech~~
      I'm sure that we may not hear back from you, but you are right. There are some good deals on used flashers to be had. I picked up this spotless FL-8 with a battery and charger for my grandsons that was hardly used for $100 bills even! 👍    
    • leech~~
      Welcome to the forum.  The only way this could happen is if the idler is to high or the clutch is stuck and engaging.  Good Luck, let us know if you get it figured out?  It could help others with the same issue.   
    • Horseshoe_Don
      Got a few eyes but no size and all were within 15 minutes.   This is my 3rd year on that trap.    I checked the clear ice less that 2 days ago on the north end of my point and I would have gone through.   no doubt about it.   Waiting for more ice to get to my secret spot, yes the one you know.   Don
    • Tommyjohn
      I've had this Jiffy propane ice auger for a couple years and shortly after I bought it used, it would spin viciously while idling.  I took it apart because I thought it may be the clutch or clutch springs but those appeared okay.  I also adjusted the idler screw on the throttle plate and this did nothing.  Any ideas?
