Deer Hunting Reports

18 posts in this topic

Just wondering what's happening with the deer hunters in your neck of the woods? I would suspect that there is quite a bit of "rut" activity in the last couple of weeks. I know that the buck sign has exploded in the last two weeks in Northern MN. I'll be heading up November 19-20th for my 1st ever Canadian Whitetail experience with Camp Manitou. All indications are that this is a 1st class operation and I can't wait to meet Matt and his guide staff.

Looking forward to any reports.

As far as I saw the Rut was in full swing in SW Minnesota. Rubs Scrapes, chasing, you name it it was happening.

Things are just starting to get into full swing, lots of rubs, scrapes, and plenty of bucks chasing does. The group that is leaving tomorrow went 8-9 with 1 guy missing, so all in all it was a good week. We are expecting good things for the next groups coming tomorrow.

Looking forwar to seeing you at camp in a week in a 1/2 bowhuntr.

I will post another report next weekend.

Acouple of nice deer above. Outfitter, make sure to post a picture of the Timber Wolf. I would rather get a big wolf than a deer anyday of the week. Thats awesome.

Thanks for posting the pictures, I couldn't get them all to upload for some reason.

If anyone is looking for next year, things are already pretty tight for new customers. We may be able to squeeze you into an early hunt, but you should be talking to your buddies and planning now.

If anyone has any new questions, just let me know.

Also, we will be launching a new HSOforum with all the new fishing and hunting pictures in a few days.

You can buy a wolf lic. over the counter and you can shoot 2 of them.

We had a few whitetail guys buy wolf tags, just in case they had a wolf walk by.

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
