DEER AREA 167-Wood man, some ?????.

Recommended Posts

Huskie

Woodman or anyone for that matter. But I know Woodman hunts in 167--- has anyone been doing any scouting to the east of 46, between Island and Shallow Pond lakes? We have hunted for years back in the Wagner Lake area and the past few years have been less and less productive. I have seen more evidence of wolves over the years and a gentleman who has a cabin in the area has seen very little deer or sign this past summer. He had heard of predator problems in that area, any confirmation or thoughts on that. Will not get up to scout ourselves until out annual Winnie fishing and grousing expedition in late Sept. or early Oct. and sometimes Mich Light gets in the way. Wonder if we need to look at plan B. Thanks.

I hunt in 168 and have been seeing a lot of the same things. And to top it off the DNR wants to reduce the amount of deer in these zones, cuz they feel there are too many. Talked to one guy last year who lives across the dirt road from where i hunt. he showed me the marks on his dog where he had to shoot at a wolf that was attacking his dog, and accidentally peppered his own dog a little.

Still waited to hear from Woodman. We may move to another area if that is what we find when we get up there.

Huskie,

I hunt in 167 and there are a lot of timber wolves around the area you are talking about. It also has quite a few deer around there too. I would give it a shot if I were you.

Good luck,

Kupcho

Kupcho: I think we will try 167 again this year. We will scout it out at least one time and hope to see a little deer sign. Where abouts in 167 do you hunt, without giving away your hot spot? Without a lottery in 167 I wonder if the number of hunters will increase, that could be good or bad!!!!

Huskie- Sorry about the delay in posts. I have been busy driving kids to events every night after school and then bed time stuff and then I am tired.

I was planning to head up to Northome this weekend and scout a little, but now our plans have changed for this weekend due to and electrician comming over to hook up our new hot tub.

When I get up there I will post results, and I am evan going to be putting out my trail cam to see what is in the areas of our stands this year. Last year we had lots of wolves, and only managed to shoot 2 deer out of 8 licenses.

Dad has been busy skinning bear at the neighbors house all season, so he has not had a chance to scout either. Evan though he has my 4-wheeler to hit the woods with.

Send me your email address and I will send you one when I get back from up there.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
