Deer Hunt Results.


Recommended Posts

DonkeyHodey

For the deer hunters out there:  This year rut was full where I was hunting.—got to watch a spooked doe charge past me, with a big buck prancing after her like Pepe-le-Pew (for all you loony-toon aficionados).  Harvested mine midweek. 😁

Despite this, I’m hearing rather mixed-to-poor reports of hunting success:   my general observation was I saw VERY few cars/trailers with deer on them in two trips back/forth from the Bemidji area (despite the full rut.)

 

From the DNR website:  2018 total harvest was 188,706

As of 11/17/19, DNR is posting total reported deer harvested currently at 134,752—even with ongoing hunting and upcoming muzzy season, I doubt an additional 50,000 animals are going to be harvested/reported…

 

For picture lovers, This isn’t the one I harvested but who doesn't like a good nature freak show, right?  (This lovely lady wandered by me ~2 years ago, and remains the most interesting deer I’ve seen from the stand…)

I think it depends on the work and type but 10,000$ is not out of the question

You guys...  🙄

This is like the old joke:

Ole went down to the public swmming beach at the local fishing hole.  He hoped to impress Lena and all her fine lady friends by wearing his tight swim trunks that showed off his "manliness."   Lars politely warned Ole that he didn't exactly have much to show off; Lars recommended perhaps Ole should tuck a potato into his Speedo.  Ole did. 

After strutting around, he was extremely disappointed:  Lena and her lady-friends only point and laugh/giggle/snort and roll their eyes...

Ole asked Lars, "what's the deal?" 

Lars told Ole, "next time, try tucking the potato in the front."

 

Sorry to break it to you fellas, but a deer's anatomy isn't like ours.  The ladies keep their mammaries in a different location, ya understand...

Yah, she’s a bit much.  We’re forecasted to get gusts to 40 today.  My SIL was out yesterday and said the skeets were horrible.

 

One friend got a doe in WI last weekend and cooler aged her for a couple days.  He said the meat turned out great.

That’s what I’m getting ready for too.

      Heard some people were out fishing at McKinley Park today.  HotL Bay is still open, so now I think it will be about November 29 before Vermilion ices-over.  I am hoping to make it out December 2.  Looked back at previous forum reports and came up with the ice-over dates below:

      Happy Thanksgiving to all !

      If you think about it. With all the hunters, trappers, guides and people just living off the land up in Canada and Alaska. You have to wonder how many Ski-Doo Skandic's even make it down to the lower 48? I would even bet being so close to the boarder a lot more Arctic cat Bearcat's and Polaris Wide tracks head that way north then down here. Not trying to discourage you but it's kind of the hot time of year for sleds. You may do better picking up a used one at the end of the season this spring or very early next fall.  Good Luck. 😉

      Happy Thanksgiving FM friends! Just remember the 10 person maximum get together. That is unless you are having a funeral for the turkey, then it's 25 people maximum 🤣

      Happy Thanksgiving to all you guys😁

      Good vid @Bryan P.  Thanks!

      Looks like NOAA national weather has modified their colder than normal winter with December being quite a bit warmer. May be a struggle to get good ice by Christmas especially Southern two thirds of the state. Getting above average snow (as forecasted) will also hamper ice build. Hope they are wrong.

      Cheers to all! Hopefully Christmas celebrations can be a little more encompassing! If not at least we may have enough ice for fishing!
    • Wanderer
      You 2 ta boot!   Since we have a small audience this year I’m trying my hand at my first smoked brisket to add to the customary turkey.   No real big risk of failure! 😆
