I hunt with a party of 10. 4 adults, 6 kids.

I shot 2 small bucks this morning, didn't see much the rest of the day. Today may have been the most miserable I've been in my entire life. Cold, super duper windy.....ick.

The only deer I saw today is now in my freezer! Good thing for those freezer filler tags! The wind sucked today, I should've had motion sickness medicine today! I will be hunting for the big buck now!

my brother in law took a small 5 pointer today, they watched a doe for a half hour last night waiting for a buck to come out, he wanted to bring his daughter today for a shot at the doe.

Saw a "flash of brown".... went to check it out....found 2 scrapes that had been freshened. Wind was swirling around, and coming from everywhere.That made it impossible to be DOWNWIND from any trail. That was it for us.....except for one little incident........... We were cold, and frustrated from the wind etc., so we went to the truck for a sandwich and to warm up a little. About 11:00 we were discussing options etc.............

when a beautiful mature buck burst out of the public woods we were hunting, crossed the road 30 yards away from us and burst into some private(no hunting area) land, while our jaws dropped in shock. What a beautiful buck!!!We debated if it was a 6 or 8 pt, but the body was in the 180 # range. gorgeous!!!

We hunted on our land in Ottertail County. Our party of 4 got 3 bucks and a doe on Sat, didn't see a deer on Sun. There were quite a few moving on our land but the neighbors didn't shoot all weekend. Hardly any shots off in the distance.

I shot a nice 8 point at 725am on Saturday morning - 50 miles NW of two harbors. It was COLD and WINDY so I just sat on our driveway (which is 2 miles long)- thinking if I got too cold I would just go to the shack and warm up.

Just as I was debating on weather to go inside I see brown walking down the drive. I pull up by 7mm WSM and notice horns. Pull the trigger about a foot above the back.

You ask why a foot above the back? Well finding the deer went 10 yards in to woods to the east it turned out to be a great shot at 472 YARDS!!!!

I have never shot that far but felt comfortable since I was sitting on a chair with an arm rest. Straight shot with no obstructions.

Everyone in our party were amazed at the shot and result.

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
