Any idea's about the deer hunting forecast up there this fall?

Sorry if I'm in the wrong section just wondering about water levels up past red lake up in the swamps (big bog area)? Thanks, cool.gif

Over the past 2-3 years I know Ive seen 2 fawns with just about every doe, so Im guessing it should be good. That is ofcourse if Kelly P's scouting and tracking skills are up to par this year! grin.gif Ill be up on fri morning.

Good Luck.....

I am back home from my deer hunting trip "up north!" My son and me had a blast. I got my doe, and my sonn saw more deer from his stand than anyother hunter. No shots fired but he had the time of his life. We shot 4 deer (3 bucks and a doe), the only doe we saw by the way. We passed up (rrr) or uh messed up on 2 more bucks and passed on a spike buck. There were 6 hunters in camp this year and a couple of buddies came along just for the ride,(Party). It was good to see them.

My youngest cousin with shot 2 of the bucks and 1 was a really nice 8 pointer and I think he went ahead and had it mounted.

pics soon, cool.gif

Congrads!! It sounds like you did better then 90% of the groups around Waskish. The worst I've heard of is one group that has hunted here for over 50 years and never saw a deer this year. frown.gif It is looking like the rut is just starting here now or never happened.

Hello Kelly P.

Well I was standing in the West Wind lodge talking with a nice gal behind the bar, she was from St. Cloud originally. (sorry i forgot her name). But any who... I was wandering if you'd come stolling in. I never have enough time to really enjoy myself and see everyone I want to. To much to do, and really enjoyed myself while there.

Have a great season. Mikinaak aka Paul cool.gif

      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!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
