do you hunt 157

Recommended Posts

do you hunt 157 what stories do you have.

I can tell you my first ever Doe and Buck have come from 157 state forest. I have gone to the same place since i started deer hunting in 2003. my father got his first deer in this area too. were hoping my brother (15) gets his first deer here too.

i might go bow hunting in this area too.

I hunt the western most edge of 157, Infact I think I have the western most stand in the area. That being said I can say that the dnr deer count is WAY off. If they say that you can kill 5 deer per guy, than I am missing something. IMO there just not that many deer around. Hunting is good, dont get me wrong, it is just not what it was 10 years ago.

you are right on that NEIGHBOR_GUY We never come away empty but we maybe get 1 deer maybe 2 for the whole hunting party. and i am talking two weekends of hunting between 3 to 6 people. I dont see that many deer. usually what we see is what we take.

I have hunted 157 for 28 years. Sure,there are some deer around. But to make it a five deer zone is just plain insane. I only saw three deer all last year. Now with the DNR changing the rules this year, I only see bad things coming. For example: When the groups are done hunting Old Zone 2, they all can move right into Zone l to finish off the season.

I have 320 acres, and it has slowly been going down hill each year.

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
