Recommended Posts

jlm

Roll call people, who will be taking part in opening bow hunting this year for that elusive monster buck? I will be out and putting in some serious time. Chime in if you will be swatting mosquitos and sweating right along side me!

Can't make it out on opener but I will be there second weekend. I was at the shack this weekend and the mosquito's weren't bad in the morning, but the evening was a different story. The neighbor came by on Fri. nite and one of the guy's from his bear hunting party got a nice bear that dressed out at 425 lbs.

I'll be going out there for the first time this year with a bow. I'm excited, but I'm not going to be able to make it out on the opener. My group was drawn for the 2004 moose hunt and we have to go to Isabella for the mandatory class and some moose scouting that weekend.

I'll be out the following weekend for sure in the evening (after the duck opener)...that is...unless the walleyes are biting.

GOD, I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR!!! smile.gif

I plan to be out of the truck walking to the stand by 5:45 am on Saturday, setup no later than 6. I plan to hunt the evening unless it's too hot, as well as possibly Sunday evening. It's nice that the Vikes play Monday night, so a game can't potentially complicate a Sunday evening hunt.

one thing I noticed last weekend, not very many skeeters as in the past. That just makes it even better.
COME ON SNOW!!!!

I will most definitely be out there. If nothing else, it is always interesting just sitting in the woods.

EXTREME

Will be out opening evening and maybe Sunday morning. Not too many skeets up North, but these darn 70 and 80 degree days make them hatch more and more each day. Oh well, they are not even close to as thick as other years. Hope to shoot a buck that makes "Milo Hanson's" look small, but will settle for a nice 8 or even a doe smile.gif

Count me in, is MN opener the 18th as it is here in cheesehead land? Will be doing more damage to the liver than to the deer. Always a chance for a buck in velvet. Lots of antlerless tags this year, so brown is gonna be down - fresh loins!

I can't make the opener this year - I'm expecting a daughter any day now. But it looks like I'll be able to get in some bowhunting in the 2nd half of October, which is OK by me. Good luck to everyone this weekend!

Can't make the opener, or even the first few days, looks like the 23rd will be my first evening out, but I'll definately be spending lots of hours in a tree this fall!! Can't wait til that first deer comes by my stand, and the rush you get after the shot!!

Good luck to all!

I will be out on Saturday night. Nothing like seeing 10-15 mosquitos landing on my netting at the same time. Last year on opener, I saw 9 deer. I the next two weeks, 8 evening hunts, I did not see one. So this year I may have to think twice about taking one of them.

I will be out there as well!!! The trail cameras sure do get your adranaline pumping. I have some nice pictures as well, but everyone keep in mind that these cameras don't take pictures of every deer in the woods. We will just have to get out there and see whats out there ourselves!!!!!!!

Good Luck to all venturing out!!!

I set up my stands and cleared lanes last weekend. The trails near where I hung them are virtual deer highways! I can’t wait to see what’s been moving through. With the way I have been shooting over the last few nights, they don’t stand a chance!

      I looked up the Mille lacs hooking mortality study on walleyes and it started to dramatically increase around 65 degrees. About 5% mortality at 65 degrees but about 25% at 75 degrees. I have to imagine the numbers are higher for muskies given an extended fight with a large fish, having to take more care to not get cut up or hooked yourself while unhooking the fish, temptation to take lots of pictures, etc.  Here's the study if you're interested http://mnmuskie.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Reeves-and-Bruesewitz-2007_factors-influencing-hooking-mortality-of-walleyes-Mille-Lacs.pdf

      Went out the last couple days on Mille lacs, we had no problem finding fish, but the big fish eluded us... We got all sorts of year classes from 11" eyes on up to 24", which is a good sign... That big storm they got must have dirtied the water up, all the fish we found were on the top edge of the flats no matter how bright it was... Rigging leeches and crawlers were the best until we got some waves then the jigging rap was taking all the fish. The fish were stacked up on points of flats and narrow ridges on the flats... We tried pulling lead for a little while, but I've never done it so I had zero confidence in it haha. 
    • james_walleye
      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.
    • Wanderer
      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.
    • CigarGuy
      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.
    • BrianF
      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.
