Woodman~Are you going to be out looking for the 30 pointer this weekend? We won't be out hunting this weekend, but will be keeping an eye out as the trucks pull up and the deer get placed in the deer room. Hope that all who go hunting have good luck~let us know how you do smile.gif

I'll be up by LOW for deer opener. Our party has always hunted zone 2 up there and my land by Island Lake is zone 1 so I don't get to hunt by my cabin, which makes my neighbor happy. Good luck Woodman and everyone else. Have a fun and safe hunt.

Is there any snow on the ground in Blackduck? We are heading up Thursday afternoon and I can't wait. We saw hundreds of deer around the area this summer.

Two more days to wait. I know I won't get anything done tomorrow. According to the weather channel we have a chance at snow on Sunday; one can alway hope right. I haven't heard but are there going to be "dancers" at Funkley this year?

Well, we got 1 deer (8pt buck) for 12 hunters. How'd the rest of you do near Blackduck?

Flashman,
Did you see the male dancers in Funkley again this year? Fold a few dollars? wink.gif

We went 4 for 7 with two does, a 6 pointer and a really nice 8 pointer. We only saw 6 deer all weekend though, a little disappointing after a 7 for 7 last year. We thought the numbers were up. The weather did not help on Saturday morning.

We saw six deer hanging in the deer room this weekend. A father/son team had a doe and an 8 pointer, another group of 8 had a spike buck and three doe. Just talked to another one of our hunters and in their group of three people they got a spike buck on opening day...we'll see how everyone does this week.

I saw a nice 6 pointer all weekend, but he was a running and a snorting at me. No does to fill my tag with. Hopefully next weekend.

hey everyone, our party got 2 spikes, one doe, a 175lb 6 pointer, and a 185lb 9 pointer. Hunting was a little slow for our party this year too. This is the first year that I didn't even see a doe. I had deer walking around me and a buck scrapping a deer right behind me, but he wouldn't come out. Oh well, maybe this weekend.
good luck

Deer Hunting at the Hanson Shack in Northome was pretty busy with the neighbors bucks. They got a spike, 5 pointer, 2 eights, and two 10 pointers. One of the 10's was over 200 lbs. Nick head mount for the happy hunter. As for the Hanson Team we only saw one for all of us. I guess I was the lucky one to see that one and only deer.

It snowed this morning so that may help us out this weekend.

Good luck to all and keep the posts.

PJ,

although Funkley is only a couple of miles from our cabin I never made it to the place all weekend. We did alright hunting, 11 deer for 16 hunters; no big bucks though. One small 9 pointer and a spike, 3 fawns and the rest were does. We filled most of the management tags, hopefully the snow will help out this weekend. Good luck to all and safe hunting.

So did anyone make it out deer hunting the last few days? We saw a few come through this way ranging from a 8 pointer down to a couple of really large does. One of the fellas said that he noticed the last couple of days where they were the deer were on the move and they spotted quite a few more and thought it was going to kick in pretty good..if the weather doesn't mess em up.

Hunted Sat all day and managed to shoot what I thought was a large Doe early morning, but when I got up to it, it turned out to be a little uck with broken off antlers. O'well one for the freezer. That is all that was shot out of the Hanson shack this weekend. The wife missed a couple of doe's, I have to get her to shoot more often to get used to the gun. I think BICK FEVER set in. That is Hunting!! cool.gif

This report isn't from the Blackduck area but I ussually post here. We hunted up by LOW and had one of our best years, 9 for 11 tags. We had a 3 pt, 2 - 5 pt., 5 - 8 pt. (one was big), and I took top honors with a nice mature 10 pt., which is now at the taxidermist. Usually I see only a handful of deer each season with 1-2 opportunities but I finally figured out this one area after 3 years and had the best opening morning of 22 years of deer hunting. Within the first 1 1/2 hours I saw 3 bucks and 4 does and one of the bucks was BIGGGGG but I couldn't get a clean shot at him - next year. I ended up seeing about 12 deer from that stand alone. That was sure fun. I feel real fortunate cause visiting other camps we didn't see that many deer taken. I guess it was our year. This was our 5 year aniversary of the five of us buying our land and I was wishing out loud to the boys that I wanted a 5x5. Things seemed to go in fives as the first deer taken was a 5 pt., the name of our camp is "Five Bucks Lodge", I got a 5x5, and I actually could have shot 5 bucks this year. This one will go down in our history book. I hope everyone had an enjoyable hunt and good luck to the last few days of zone 1 hunters.

Well I finally filled my tag. I shot a mature 9 pointer on saturday at 12:00. I think I'm bringing it to the taxidermist as well.
Just letting everyone know.

      Has anyone fished the Rum River between Onamia and the Wayside landing around this time of year before? I'm looking to take a trip with the kayak over labor day, but wanted to make that stretch would be deep enough to float (I'm ok with occasionally dragging the kayak, but I don't want to take my girlfriend on a 9 mile hike in ankle deep water), and that there'd be a realistic chance to hook into some good smallies. I will be doing strictly catch and release, I just want to get out and have some topwater fun. I had heard from some that the stretch of river in question may be better in June, so I wasn't for sure.    If that stretch of river is no good, is there another that you'd recommend?   I appreciate any help.

      On the south end...  Walleye fishing has been good all summer and is still strong.  Lots of limits of walleyes along with some big fish being caught.  Lake levels continue to drop thankfully.  Boat ramps are open and charters / guides continue to be on fish. Drifting spinners still producing.  Hammered gold, pink, orange, glow white, glow red or a combo of some of these colors working well.  Usually a two or three hook harness with just a few inches of crawler off of the back hook.  Good success jigging for walleyes.  This technique usually slows down in August, but this year it is still working great.  Using a frozen emerald shiner is the go to. Big walleyes being found, as a rule, over deep mud.  Jigging, spinners and crankbaits are all catching the big fish.   Nice eaters still set up in 15-20' outside both gaps on the south end of the lake as well as numerous areas of Big Traverse Bay.   Lots of anglers running north if conditions allow.   On the Rainy River...   Some good walleye, sturgeon and smallmouth bass reports from the Rainy River.  Water levels continue to drop.   Shoreline breaks, current breaks, weed edges and holes holding a mixed bag. Sturgeon anglers are reporting good numbers of fish.  Putting in a couple of days normally results in some success.  Holes and flats or saddles just off of the current good areas to look at. Up at the NW Angle...  Lots of walleyes along with a mixed bag is the norm.  Some anglers fishing MN waters, others boating into Ontario waters from the Angle and fishing there.  Good reports across the board. Angle resorts are located in MN right on the border.  Checking in with Canada Customs and being vaccinated is not needed if boating from the U.S. to Canada and not touching land, docks, anchoring, mooring or exchanging goods or services.   Little Traverse Bay (large open water east of Little Oak Island) still holding good numbers of walleyes over deep mud. Typical summer spots are producing.  Sunken islands, neck down areas with moving water and points.  With 14,552 islands, lots of places to fish. Muskie anglers reporting fish have been active with good numbers being caught. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air (fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      I have been out four times this season since mid July.  I caught some smaller ones the first couple trips, but Saturday I finally got into some larger fish with my Father.  The bigger ones are tiger muskies in the mid 30 inch range.  I had another one on that made these look small.  We got a good look at it when it surfaced and spit the hook with a head shake.  Appeared to be 45+ inches, which is enormous for a hybrid.
    • gimruis
      I saw a fair amount of wood ducks and teal in the Rum River a couple weeks ago when I was floating it for smallmouth bass.  More so than usual.   I hear ya on the ducks though.  There just isn't nearly as many as there used to be, which is why I stopped hunting them.  Hard to justify the time investment and scouting that is required when it only produces a few ducks per season.  I used to harvest about 35/season just 10 years ago too.

      Need to read bottom and mark fish while on plane   Marking fish while on plane? Is this even practical? At that speed, my guess is you'd go over it so fast a fish might show up as a dot on the screen. I've never thought that would be possible. Am I wrong?

      I’ve only seen teal one morning on the river.  Absolutely nothing in all the evenings I’ve been out.  Hard to get excited about hunting around home. 😒

      Public Administration in any sphere is a complicated process. In public service, there is a high level of responsibility. Every decision may affect large groups of people. There are many challenging points in Public Administration in public service. For example, public administration servants might face a lack of clarity or conflict regarding goals. Public Administration is difficult when there are numerous parties involved. Public Administration essay in public service should also be as objective as possible. There are voting sessions in various committees that help reach the objectiveness. However, if a suggestion gets 50% of votes among street-level bureaucrats, how should this be interpreted? Is a minor preponderance of votes enough to accept a proposal? The sphere implies a focus on societal needs. Sometimes the needs of the target population differ from the common societal ones. In such cases, public administration specialists need to find a balance between those interests. Bureaucrats at street level need to take into consideration many factors. In some cases, it might be challenging to figure out what to do. It is especially true if the decision regards a long-term perspective. Any public service organization has an established pattern for effective decision-making. Such models might involve many formalities. As a result, the process might be extremely time-consuming. https://proessays.net/essays/category/public-administration Related Resources: https://renkulab.io/gitlab/-/snippets/2871 https://www.ridesharetalks.com/?qa=356716/economics-essay-example https://gitlab.syntra-limburg.be/-/snippets/1240 https://forum.making-stories.com/d/296-government-essay-examples
