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.

      Lake Winnie fishing report. There’s 15 inches of ice on the main lake as of January 16th, 2020, but less in areas along the shore so resorts continue to be limited with plowing options.   There’s also 12 to 24 inches of snow across the lake making snowmobiles the only way people are getting out. There is a little bit of flooding when holes are drilled, but our cold weather has been freezing existing water, making snowmobile travel easier.   Perch fishing has been good on the shoreline breaks and main lake structure and some walleyes continue to be caught on the humps and bars early and late each.   Bring a snowmobile and contact resorts for access availability.

      Cass Lake Lodge Report Chris was out checking ice conditions today. We got a new 6” of snow yesterday but the ice is finally setting up. Ice thickness is 14-16” with 4-6” top layer of bad ice. Four wheeler traffic is still possible with not much slush.

      Trappers Landing Lodge Report Leech Lake Fishing Report Fishing pressure has remained low for the past few weeks. The anglers out fishing walleyes are seeing a low light bite currently.   Set lines with a colored hook and a minnow have been how a majority of fish are being caught. Look for a break line in 15' -22' of water to find the most active fish.   During the day the perch bite has been surprisingly strong with a majority of the fish coming in 12'-16' of water on Northland jigging spoons tipped with a crappie minnow or a set line with a smaller minnow are bringing fish topside.   With the low fishing pressure right now the early season ice spots are still catching fish.

      Nice bite going on Garrison reef in 20' and the myr mar mud in 27' even better. Have fun!

      Weird. Usually hear it with the rigid drills or the mud mixers.  No idea why some shutdown frequently and others don't.  Although figured some guys just drill more and faster than others.  Not many push them harder than Icehawk does though.  😁

      From Mitch Bradshaw Outdoors We started the Annual Lake of the Woods trip off with a half day at Zippel yesterday. It didn't produce much for the group but small Saugers except for the 21.5" Walleye caught by the reigning "Mr. Walleye"!

      Checked a few lakes around the area and seems like the average ice thickness is 15". Obviously this isn't everywhere, and I did find areas with 18".
