Gissert has first hand details.

Both bull tags were filled last week. Nice bulls too.

What a rush thats got to be.

I was contacted by one of the tag winners prior to the season, and shared with him what I knew. He and his partner shot a great looking 6 x 6 opening morning. Right after they got their bull, a massive 6 x 7 came into them, stopping at 20 yards and bugled. Great stuff!

The other tag holder also connected opening morning.

What a difference a year makes. Last year, the elk were rutting 2-3 miles farther east, outside the hunt zone.

Congratulations to these guys, and to the DNR and RMEF for working to keep this herd going and growing. Better yet, there is a MUCH larger herd cooking up in Roseau and Kittson counties that trades back and forth into Canada. With all the habitat work that has been done, they are really starting to hang on the Minnesota side.

Good luck to those holding the cow tags as well.

Wow, congrats to those guys.

It is a wonderful thing to have elk in MN and the opportunity to get to hunt them. Kudos to those involved in making it happen.

I am in the landowner section so i think i might apply next year. I have been thinking about it the last couple of years. I also have friends that keep track of the elk most of the year so I have a decent idea of were they are. I also get to see them once in a while throughout the year.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter

      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
