Glendel gets attacked

Recommended Posts

outdoor ran

The dog went nuts this morning in the house, so I suspected we had an animal in the yard. Went outside to check to see what was up. To my surprise my Glendel 3D deer target was in pieces scattered in the yard. All that was left standing was its legs, but the rubar posts were severely bent. The head and antlers were broken about 10 yards away. I found the main body about 20 yards away under a pine tree.

We have had a bear in the yard a couple times this summer. I believe its too early in the year for a buck to be attacking it, to me it just seems odd that a bear would attack this target and not hit the bird feeders. Could this be the work of some coyotes or maybe even a wolf?

I put him back together and took a couple pics. Looking at the shooting block heart area, you notice four or five claws marks. Notice how it looks like it tried to eat the deers gut area? Any ideas?

My vote is wolf. If it was a coyote then there would have been more than one but the wolf would take it down and then grab that back leg and cripple it. If you put some buck scent on it and set it up in front of a trail cam you might get to see if anything comes back.

Send an email to Glendall. Who knows they may give you a new target.

I would guess a young dumb bear.

That is kinda nuts. I have small boys at home and it is a little creepy.

Did you check with the DNR?

I ran into our local warden yesterday while goose hunting and showed him the pics. All he did was laugh.

The body on this target is heavy. Its the biggest one they make i believe. I cant see a coyote or small dog dragging it that far. Can't be a boar with those claw marks. I'm hoping it was a bear and not a cougar or wolf. Even though we do have some in this county.

A buddy of mine had his full body targert dragged 30 yards into the woods this spring. We found teeth marks around the neck that measured 9 1/4" between the k-9's! As we investigated the area we found perfect cat tracks in the mud and we also found were it launched itself from when it attacked the target. The most impressive part was how deep the the teeth marks were in the neck........you'd have little chance against an animal of this sorts! A call to the DNR about his concerns (mostly for his two young neices and the family dogs) were never returned.

FYI.....this happened in the dead center of Duluth!

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
