I was amazed at how many close guesses there actualy was.I guessed this buck at 184-185 gross and 169-171 net after dry time.I'm going to hit the dry time period score but was a lil off on the gross when me and Extreme were talking about the pic.Extreme was actualy right on the money when he guessed this buck i about put a load in my shorts when i scored the buck i was just a 1/2" off doing it myself free hand and counting it in my head as i ran the tape.So good guess Extreme

I talk to lots of guys who say they shot a 150 class 220lb deer.1st of all it takes a nice deer to hit 150 then to hit 220lb down in this area is kinda far fetched when i hear it everyday during the gun season.Then when i see the deer it's a 120" 175lb deer.Feels like 300lbs when your draggin the deer but it takes a darn big deer to hit 200lbs down here

So when i was looking at the scores i figured i was going to see all kinds of scores well over 200".I have seen a couple over 200 on the hoof in the wild.Thats an elk standing out in the field at 200" or it looks like a tree.This deer had the main frame to be much more then what he is just think if he was a 12 or more like the milo hansen buck.He would rate right up there next to it

So i wanna thank everyone who took a good solid guess and say wow i am impressed that people actualy know how to score a buck

I'm working on getting pics up as soon as i can.I'm probly more excited to put them up then anyone wanting to look at it.

For some reason Shikellamy dont contact me or backs out i'll take the 2 people who 1st guessed 181 4/8 & 181 6/8

I posted at the end of the other thread. You definitely have mail!!!!!!!

I just want to say thanks. I don't think I've ever won any sort of contest before. I am a regular guy who usually hunts deer by myself on public lands. I only have 2 small bucks to my name. I can't believe I might have an opportunity to see a buck even close to this...let alone get a shot at one. Holy friggin wow. I HOPE we can make this work...believe me, I will be plenty flexible wink.gif

Thanks again for this contest and once in a lifetime opportunity as far as I am concerned.

TJM, I know what you are saying about people talking about the deer they shoot. When we would register deer in our Buck contest, everyone that shot an 8 point thought they had a 200 pounder. Most were 175-180 lbs. How old do you think that buck you shot was? Under good conditions next year do you think it would have scored higher? I'm a rookie at this deer hunting stuff yet but my father in law saw one last season similar to yours about a 1/4 mile from where I hunt so hopefully things go right and it survived the off season.

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
    • Borch
      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!
    • ozzie
      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).
