Deer Hunt Results.


Recommended Posts

DonkeyHodey

For the deer hunters out there:¬† This year rut was full where I was hunting.‚ÄĒgot 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. ūüėĀ

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‚ÄĒeven with ongoing hunting and upcoming muzzy season, I doubt an additional 50,000 animals are going to be harvested/reported‚Ķ

 

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

That's the Dolly Parton of deer......

You guys...¬† ūüôĄ

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.

      yea i dont really understand the rational for changing it from dec 1 to nov 15 either.........whats the rush. i dont remeber any year since they changed the date that there was safe enough ice..........could be wrong though. i remember more years when it was dec 1 with plenty of iffy ice and that was going to itasca county lakes!!!!!!

      I guess I should read the regs once in awhile. I had no clue they changed the spearing opener, it was December 1st for as long as I can remember. Doesn't matter this year, still isn't enough ice to get out. It was around 16 last night so we probably made ice, but I'm going to need a few more days of single digits before I get out. Were booked for tomorrow, not sure yet if it's going to happen or not. Jim

      I went a day last week for the first time this season and folded up two roosters in about an hour and a half.

      Was up this weekend, checked ice off North sides of Moccasin point and Breezy point. Both had 3-3.5" near shore but quickly dropped to 2-2.5" before you got 100' feet out. Not enough for me so retreated back to shore

      Felt good enough to take a little walk and no birds seen. 
    • smurfy
      Yep still the 15th.
    • Mike89
      hey Jim, spearing opened Nov.15th if I remember correctly...  unless they changed up the dates again...  just sayin.....

      We went for an ice scouting trip yesterday afternoon.   First lake we went to had sign of people fishin earlier in the day, I took the spud walked out 20' from the landing, 2 hits and the spud was through. Wherever anybody walked there was water in their tracks. No cars at the landing, and I didn't see any big open holes, so I figure they were lucky.   Went to lake #2 didn't even get out of the truck. Somebody had driven a wheeler around  to the west, and cleared a bit of snow to make a skating rink, open water straight out from the landing. Nobody skating, wonder why.   Went to lake #3 there was a half a dozen guy's fishin a half a mile out in the lake. I grabbed the spud, went out on the ice, chopped three different holes, the most it took was six hit's from the spud, and I was through. I'm thinkin 3"s of ice, and figured my guess was a little generous. I couldn't see where any of the guy's out fishin had even tried spudding, or drilling a hole, they just followed the other tracks out. Where they were fishin it was open last Sunday. I didn't see anybody catchin fish, and we were there at prime time. One group was spread out over a pretty good sized area, the other guys were standing in a group, with all kinds of junk around them. I have a word for those guy's, but can't post it here. LOL   I want to go fishin pretty badly, but there is a fine line out there that I'm not about to cross. We got in the truck and left that lake too.   Didn't even stop at Vermillion, can't believe it could be any better. The 3 lakes we looked at were all less than a 1000 acres in size, the one with the open water, right around 250 acres.   No body ever accused me of bein a genius, but I'm not about to risk my life to go fishin. LOL   Spearin opens on Tuesday, I'm chompin at the bit to go, supposed to get cold tonight, and tomorrow night, so maybe we'll make enough ice to go. At least where we spear you can touch the bottom if you go through. Our spearing lake is the one that took 2 hits. lol   Been there done that quite a few times over the year's, the older I get the less I want to get wet. LOL   The guy up at the baitshop told me he heard that Red lake had 7-9"s of ice, SURE.   Jim
