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.

    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.

    • I replaced my transducer on my  fl 18 with a proview  last winter very pleased with it. I thought my vexilar was going bad it was not picking up my hook anymore.  Replaced my transducer with a new proview worked great last spring crappie fishing. Replacing the transducer on my fl 12 with a proview this week.
