bb's in nice buck

Recommended Posts

We shot a nice 10 point buck W/ML) north of Hutchinson - when skinning it I found a bb - while butchering it we found 2 more (all the way to the bone) We cut up a roast for jerky and found another one - and last night eating a roast I found one! They were in the front and rear quarter. Steel shot - looks like about a BB to a 1 shot! Kinda screwed up if you ask me.

my niece shot a nice doe this year that had a 22 hole in it's right cheek. Last year, we had one that also had a 22 bullet in perfect shape lodged between the hide and meat. Would be nice to catch who's doing this.

Well - three years ago found a buck with BB's in it. This year a horse is shot (with pellets)? Wonder if they are related?

the BB's are because a lot of clowns hunt with the first shot as bird shot for pheasant and when they see the deer they forget to eject. its illegal, but not everyone follows the rules

To me that would make no sense. Why would I want to risk ruining my rifled steel barrel running steel bird shot through it? Why would I want to put myself into a position where I HAD to make all that racket getting the second shell in the chamber after I saw a deer? I guess it takes all kinds to make the world go round!

pretty sure their just using regular barrels for pheasant hunting and when the deer pops us the first shell is a pheasant load so they shoot forgetting its in there and the next is just a regular slug

If 3 bucks had 22 holes in them, I'd think about calling TIP. The DNR won't be able to do much about poaching unless they know about it. IF you can give them the area that you are hunting, they will probably take that a little more seriously. Sounds an aweful lot like there is something going on in your area.

I'll second that... absolutely make the call. That's not something that should be ignored. Officers will not take the call lightly.

or even duck hunters, kicking em out of the swamp and shots at them. Anyway, I've never found anything like that on the deer we have shot in camp in the past years and this year.

Found some broadheads in the hides of 2 bucks we shot, 1 in each. Had lots of trespasser problems this weekend and every year same problems.

I have seen one broafhead in a deer over the years, but never .22 bullets or pellets. Deffinetly let the CO's know about stuff like that.

I doubt if the 22 bullets are from poachers. Probably somebody just mad at the deer that keep eating at the bird feeder or something like that.

Ive seen two bucks that had simalar things happen to them.

One had BBs (about six of them) under the skin and they just fell out once we were caping it. We were unsure if it happened form a pheasant hunter that year or from the previous year, only one can guess.

The other one had a full arrow stuck in it from a bow hunter. The arrow was entered in on side but never exited the other side.

A high powered rifle to scare them away??? I would say that might explain the bird shot, but not the .22 holes. The .22 is way more deadly than birdshot, and poachers may use the .22 because it is a lot quieter than a rifle or shotgun and still plenty deadly. 3 bucks shot with a .22 would have me calling tipline looking for poachers.

i was hunting our farm by donnelly minnesota and on two diffrent ocasions i watched people shoot from in side their trucks. and i know that one was no shotgun, sounded like a smaller pistol he let off 5 rounds in a matter of seconds. even watched a pickup drive down a tree line with the passanger sitting out the window with his gun in his hands. and than as i was walking back to the truck about 20 min after shooting time i see a set of head lights pull into a field adjusant to us and shoot a cupple times that leave. and the best part is they only gave out 27 doe permints for the hole area. you do the math i dont think they were shooting bucks.

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.        
    • smurfy
      got mine done........for the cabin.....ready for summer festivities!!!!!!   there was still frost in the ground...........but good gawd are the lakes low!!!!!
    • CigarGuy

      How many walleye were on the stringer on their way out??? 
    • CigarGuy
      Saw the first boat of the year yesterday, heading towards Black Bay 
    • SkunkedAgain
      All of the webcams appear to be ice-free except for shore ice. It looks like you could navigate most of the way on Vermilion at this point. Happy boating everyone.

      I'm the same on honey do lists. I seem to feel better doing my list than my wife's list, even though they my be similar. 
    • Mike89
      these were that way..   I thought the deep fried rocky mountain oysters were better...   😁
    • leech~~
      Yeah, I saw there was a few in the last week or so.  I like the smaller crispy crunchy ones Mike!
