Thanks Harvey Lee, I have my shotgun sighted in(newly with a scope), My copy of Escanaba in the Moonlight set aside, and we have the last section of corn in the county still in.... It has always bugged me in the past but I am going to try and use it to my advantage this year.

Let's not be afraid to shoot some does, especially in Houston county. They're really thick down that way. I also hunt 2nd season, so save me a nice buck! Good luck!

Thanks Harvey!

The old man, my uncles, and myself have been long awaiting for deer season to get here. Sounds like it's going to be good weather up here by I. Falls where we hunt for opening weekend. Calling for cool and snow, which is always great for visibility and tracking. Again, be safe everyone and have a great season, may your meatpoles sag with the weight of a bruiser!

Gladly. To each their own and do your own thing but big bucks taste like poopie and are good for cutting the head off and feeding the rest to the dog. My opinion.

I'm stoked. There are 7 of us including kids and we can all shoot a doe. I'm hoping we end up with 7- one or two year old does. YUMMY!!!!!!!!!! Besides, it helps thin em out.

Be careful out there this weekend fellas.

Even when you help somebody else drag a 150 pounder across 1/2 mile of floating bog in the dark trying to find the "higher" spots so your boots don't fill completely up.

Or is that just work, and not sportsmanship?

Everybody be safe and consider wearing or using one of the new green flashlights if you hunt in an area where other people hunt. We had 2 people die last year in Minnesota that would be alive if they had been wearing or using one of those lights. The not shooting at what you can't see is obviously important, but most people wouldn't make the mistake of thinking a deer has a light attached to it.

Our party is 6 people and we could have 30 tags in the area we hunt. 4 Doe tags apiece plus 1 buck tag. We never buy that many tags because we couldn't use that much deer no matter what we did. It would be worthwhile to give a deer to the food shelter, but they only take processed deer. It costs us like 80 bucks a deer to process so that really isn't going to happen at least for me. If the foodshelf was smart they'd set up some kind of deal with a processor. I'd bet that you'd see a lot more guys taking an additional doe if that we're the case.

Our problem is always more about buck tags. Once you shoot your buck, if you take another one you better be mounting it on the wall.

HI Hines R there are always some familys in need of extra meat in the freezer for the winter last year myself and some friends donated deer to a couple of differnt familys. found out about the familys though the bait store. Registraion stations may also know of such familys. just a little FYI and the green light is a awsome idea. one of the guys killed last year or the year before only live 1/2 mile from me . sad part was he was shot by his best friend.

I bowhunt, slug and muzzleloader hunt (and party hunt) so hopefully I will have more than one chance at a buck.

Here is my solution to having only one buck tag:

All small bucks will go on their merry way. I will only shoot at a trophy buck.

In my book a doe is better than a young buck.

I know most everyone wants to get a deer but personally I would rather not shoot a deer at all than shoot a small buck from now on. (By small I mean not much smaller than a wall hanger- just my take)

Good luck everyone!

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find 
    • Nix769
      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!
    • meerkat
      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
