Deer Movement

4 posts in this topic

I hunt in Cushing, MN which is approximately 15 miles West of Little Falls. Of course opening morning the deer were running frantically around the woods as a result of all the hunters. However, that evening was extremely quiet (only heard 4 or 5 shots) and didn't see a thing. The next two days were similar. I did a lot of walking and noticed some scrapes and a few rubs but not a lot. I'm thinking the deer aren't moving much yet and the coming weekend should be good. What are your thoughts?

There is a group of 8 of us that up north of Virginia every Opener. This year, we heard very few shots on Opener (first one around 7:30am) and a stop by the butcher on Monday revealed that he had only processed 17 deer on Opening weekend instead of the 100+ he usually processes.

My dad hunts out in Lac Qui Parle county and said on Saturday morning around 9am, he and his cousin drove to the top of a bluff to scan for deer and other hunter activity. From the top of the bluff (visibility for literally miles), they only saw 1 group of hunters on a drive.

Tough opener weekend for sure! But that just means there are more for this coming weekend!

We hunt near brainerd and there were few shots, the wind killed the hunting in my opinion, we stayed out all day both days and it was tuff hunting, we got 5 for the 7 of use but it was work

I don't know really know what others think, but my uncles would claim that around the full moon, deer would be more nocturnal. Just my thoughts

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
