No deer this morning

10 posts in this topic

So after two mornings of good action in a new spot, all of a sudden I see absolutely nothing this morning. I did notice a stand about 60yds from mine that someone else put up, but I dont know that it wasnt already there. it could have been and i may have just missed it. I cant figure this out. Was it the warm weather and the cloud cover? That is honestly the only thing i can think of.

Maybe they are busting you on your entry exit route. It isnt hard to burn out a stand if one isnt careful.

agree with Eskimo--- dont over hunt a good stand... sure way to kill the action.

I cant hunt it now until after this coming weekend. Maybe things will get back to normal.

i agree that they might be busting you coming out of the stand but we also have to look at how close we are to the rut and all the deer are locked down.... movement always sucks during that time of year

Can't get discouraged because of one stand, heck, I've gone a whole week without seeing deer. frown

I hunted this last friday night and saturday morning and didn't see any deer. Saturday night I also did not see any deer during hunting hours, however I did stay out for a few hours after sunset to see if anything was moving. Of course about 45 minutes after complete darkness I saw the outlines of 5 deer moving through. I hope they start moving during hunting hours so I can get one

I dont understand how deer in one part of the state can be fully in the the rut and another they have yet to really start.

Ive also gone a long time in one stand without seeing anything. It is just weird to be having good action and then all of a sudden nothing.

The rut goes as the Does go. Right now, in my area, the does are not being very receptive. Last night one bolted for the woods at the sight of a small buck. 15 miles down road, those does are being more receptive. It was just picking up when the weather turned and we got this little heat wave, I think that it will pick up considerable in the next couple of days when the front goes through.

Like 96 said it all depends on the does. If one goes into heat early someone will always say the rut is on in October when really one doe is providing all the action. We have had seasons where one guy will see all kinds of action and another guy 2-300 yards away doesn't see a deer. You really just have to be in the right place when that hot doe comes by. Over the years I have seen the best rutting action from November 8th through the 12th, but different parts of the state can vary from region to region.

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
