So what are the early reports for your guys camps. I hope better than ours pretty slow not that many deer moving. I think that the full moon had them moving alot more a night than usual. We so quite a few does as a party but didn't connect. Well I will be back up thurs and hopefully I can get mine in MN so that I can head into ND and get mine out there. Good luck to all of you that are still hunting and congrats to the ones that got the big one.

Saw a ton of deer moving, all day long. Total of 20-25 deer seen by myself from several different stands throughout the day. Could have shot shot a few does but held off. Good thing, I got a nice 12 point 30 minutes before dark. Woohoo!!!! He's getting caped right now and will go to the taxidermist.

Nice do you got any pitures to share of that monster. I need to be reminded every now and then that it is possible for a deer to grow a nice rack. Wish I could connect up with one like that.

We had our 5 deer for 3 hunters by 8:00am Sunday. Hunting near Brainerd, we saw more deer than we ever have in that area. We got a big 8 pointer Saturday and the rest were does.

We got three does for 3 people. Held out for bucks after that but never saw one. But its all good, plenty of meat for us smile.gif To bad I found out Von Hansons was doing mixed meat only, after I had already droped them off. I hope you all cleaned and hung your deer well!! smile.gif

Any word yet?

7 bucks, 1 doe for 12 guys as of noon on Sunday. Smallest buck was 5 pt, the rest were all 8+ - biggest 11 pt. Had to head home Sunday, but Monday the meat pole added another 11 pt and a monster 8 pt that out-did the rest of 'em I from what I'm told. Still waiting to see pics from the cousins.

We passed on a lot of smaller bucks to let 'em grow. "Whitetail Catch & Release" I guess you could call it? Catch 'em in the scope and let 'em go... smile.gif

Are you guys with these nice bucks hunting on private land, or it just that good where you are? I was just wondering because I have hunted some public land near Mora for 4 yrs. now and have only seen 1 spike buck. Normally I see at least a few does though but nothing like you guys are describing. I am not new to the sport either and I put in time scouting and checking stands and put in 10-12hrs a day in the woods, but I have only seen 1 doe that I took last Wed. Not that I'm complaining about only 1 deer, just wondering if I should try a different area, maybe further up north?

We're 6 for 6 so far with 4 bucks( A big 8, 6 and a couple of 4 pointers) and 2 does(management tags). We still have this weekend to get a few more.

I broke in my muzzleloader this weekend with a 4 point buck. Passed on several does and a few bucks that didn't offer a decent shot last weekend.

The this weather really put the damper on deer movement this weekend. Not much moving around. Hopefully things are better for next weekend. I've still have two kids who haven't filled a tag yet this year.

Wow that is a nice buck you got there viddles456. What part of the state are you hunting in?? Well things came together for my dad and I this last Fri. I got a 9point + 3 Sticker horns = 12 Points on Fri Morning and my dad got a pretty good Doe about 10 minutes after I got mine. Lucked out that is for sure only buck I saw in our camp but I'll take it. Start out in ND this past weekend the group I am hunting with has 3 does and 1 small buck so far. We have 3 buck tags left so probably going to get a little tough to fill out there but we'll keep on walking.

Great shots! Those are some nice bucks. I went this last weekend. I shot the only buck out of my party of seven, an 8-pointer with a narrow rack was hunkered down in a ditchline on my Dad's farm. Made the weekend. The rest of my pack is out hunting today while I'm handcuffed to this desk at work. At least I wasn't skunked.

I'll try to send a pice of the twelve pointer I got Sat. Incredible mass with 2 1/2 inch diameter bases.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!
    • Wakemup
      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      I have to agree, always enjoy your videos Curt. Fun to see what is happening even from the southern part of the state...Keep em coming...

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!
    • Raven77
      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
