Glassed last night, had been seeing only a few but saw close to 20 last night. That's an improvement but still not the numbers we are used to.

I was out on Monday night and saw 3 bucks. The last one was a bruiser but I couldn't make out how big his rack was due to the lack of light and distance. The first two were 1.5 year old bucks but the last one was definitely a mature older deer.

All 3 bucks seems to be out on the prowl checking out where the does are. Of couse I was in a management area and no does came by.

It was warm last weekend and I only went out once. All I saw my 3 legged buck that I posted on the trail cam pics earlier. I think a little cooler weather will give us a little more daytime movement.

Saw two small bucks last night. It was good just to see them again. I have seen very little deer lately. The corn down here is absolutely killing me and its not getting picked until next week.

Deer sightings are next to nothing for me as well.

Over MEA we hunted 4 days. I saw deer on one sit. Shot a doe though, so not all bad. laugh

Havent seen an antler yet this year either. Soon, very soon.

    •   Dave, I’ll take a shot at your question. Just like you always say, we can’t be the police for the whole world. On the same lines we can’t be the world’s health and human services department as well.   Do you honestly think that people in need are only in Mexico a couple hundred miles from the US border? There are many people throughout the world that don’t have good jobs and find it tough to put food on the table. What separates those people from the Mexicans a couple hundred miles from the border? Do you want to tell the family in Africa that since they are a couple thousand miles from our border they don’t count?   It’s a cruel world as they say and the US caps immigration at a certain number each year. Is it fair for the people that wait their turn and go through the proper channels to immigrate here and then say oh well to the immigrants that sneak across the border illegally? There is a system in place and all immigrants should follow it whether they are 100 miles from our border or 2,000 miles from our borders.   In a perfect world we could let anyone that has a tough life into the US but that would be an astronomical number of people and our country and economy could not support that no matter how much we tried. What Jesus or good Christians would do is not feasible in today’s world, we can’t save all the people in the world no matter how hard we try.
    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.
    •     What one did you get???
    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.   
    • The new minn kota 300d didn't have the two 20ga wires so just spliced the black  to black and red to white from the charging cables, hooked all the batteries back up and everything is working again.
