Bemidji state park area

my brother was selected for the second year in a row to the BEMIDJI YOUTH SPECIAL HUNT. last year we had a blast he managed to get a buck in his sights but when he took off the safety the buck bolted. I hope we can get him his first deer this year.

on the other hand since my father will be sitting with him i plan to head to the local public lands for a chance to score for the first time this year. any tips/areas/locations/ deer movement you have been seeing would be great

I was out yesterday in the area and saw a few deer moving. Saw a decent 8 point buck. Last week someone shot a nice 12 point on public land near there. When are you hunting?

ac777,

I will be out there this weekend 17 i set up the stands and 18 and 19 we plan on hunting my brother for the special youth hunt with my dad. I will be near some spots i know THANKS TO WOODMAN.

WOODMAN,

Did you ever get lucky on any of those bucks you were after? Do you happen to know if any of the youth hunters took anything. As far as i knew on sunday when we left no one had registered a deer. I saw alot of deer but didnt get the does close enough. My brother saw a nice buck and as soon as he CLICKED off the safety he bolted along with 2 does. be sure to send me some pics if you get any just to get my brother PUMPED ha ha. my email address is my signature.

We have been seeing lots of does and fawns where you wil be heading, so hopefully they will walk by your brother when he is out there. Head down to where I showed you last year to hunt. I have not been back since my stand was stolen last year, so make sure you pull it every night! mad

Good luck and I will send you pictures as I get them!

Those big ones we just watched and drooled over, but they are nice to watch, and hopefully I can get some nice pictures of them if they are still around. I know of a 14 pointer that is in the area and still need to get him on film!

i know i saw a huge buck but it was on private property.. the one that has LLAMAS or whatever they are. I saw him both days eating on the edge of the tree line on whatever they had planted. there were 3 does with him both days too. Honestly I hope my brother gets something. I myself just want to see deer i dont care if I dont get a shot. Ive been out as much as I can out here and havent seen a thing while sitting on the stand. been to preston mn, houston, mn, local metro swamps, east bethel forest lake areas even rum river sf and NOTHING. Double washing my clothing for scent control and doing a bunch of extra stuff. putting in extra time on the stands and nothing. I want to know they are out there he he he. any good watering holes near your area or places to go eat?

    • Not a bad idea or product. I just think I'd be worried about the well freezing into the ice. 
    • Had a fun week of fishing...thought I would share some spots!
    • Did 20 qts of pickles last Monday, another 1/2 bushel tomorrow!!
    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.
    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!
    • When is the date unsold bear tags go onsale?
    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
