Deer Hunt Results.


Recommended Posts

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…)

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

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...

Terrible wind this weekend for me. Next weekend is forecasted 80s. Not the start I was hoping for 

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.
