I used to live in Red Wing and I think that whole area in the river bottoms is PRIMO big monster buck territory... Very similar geography to Buffalo Co Wisc. and we all know what that produces.

Incredible buck... massive. I think it's about time to start looking for a place to hunt along the bluffs. My goodness.

I like how the pic with her is black and white.

Obviously trying to keep the hype out of the fact she wasnt wearing any orange clothing for the pictures in the field.

Dang, what a deer. I thought MN didnt have any big bucks. smile

Kelly, her husband, and especially her brothers have always been great hunters. Every year they put alot of work into deer hunting, especially on the food plot/planting end. My brothers and I each went to school with a member of the Otto family, so we know them quite well. With all the effort that they put into it, and the pedigree of the property they hunt, I'm not surprised by their success.

This is a deer they've been watching for some time now, and it's a testament to what some hard work and passing on little bucks can do.

Probably will go top ten biggest muzzleloader bucks ever taken by a woman in MN.

Congrats!

Joel

I'd have to agree with you Quackaddict9. There is no way in [PoorWordUsage] that some of those points are over an inch. I also counted 17 points on this buck. I don't think this lady knows how to get the facts straight on her buck. I think she got really excited and didnt realize that the points had to be at least an inch long. She even named it after Brock Lesner.

Good god, who gives a rip how many points it has, the thing is a HOG and you are counting points from a picture, you have no idea what actually is a point and what is not. Always gotta be someone on this forum point out what they think is a flaw in something they have no clue about. You think since the time of the kill to when the story was reported she or her husband didn't count the points more than once?

The only bad thing about that buck is that there aren't more like it here in MN!

    • So lets recap.   Decriminalization will not reduce prison populations by a noticeable amount.    Will not reduce crime.   Will not reduce monies spent combating drug suppliers and dealers.   Will not lower the consumption rates.    - Will allow regular everyday citizens who use/possess and get caught, not ruin their lives with a crippling criminal record.   May encourage the the habitual users to seek treatment/help.      Which I have no issues with.   My issues are saying with decriminalization it will save tax payers any money.   That's my beef.    
    •   I didn't see the Socialist party listed

    • Nick they are all trash, your party included, until you figure that out you are no better than some blind Trump supporter.
    •   That was a long time ago.   The media has become far more partisan than it was at that time.   

    • You are starting to sound like a helpless snowflake in desperate need of big government to take away the burden of personal responsibility away from you. I try and take a big picture approach and not mico manage our laws based on political views outside of science or common sense.

      No one is advocating for drunk driving or murder to be legal but I guess that doesn't stop you from using wild assumptions without anything to back them up.

      All most of us are asking for is simple freedoms and choices and a government that stays out of the way. Having a bunch of drugs that kill and half of the legal and half of them illegal makes no sense. You either stand for personal freedom and responsibility across the board or you don't, picking and choose this stuff based on political leanings is about as backwards as it gets and you just end up looking like a complete hypocrite. Keeping drugs outlawed because people die is the same kind of reasoning people use to take away guns. All the while you are more likely to die from eating too much McDonalds, you simply can't outlaw stupid people or the things they do and expect that to work. We as a people need to stop trying to control things are completely out of our control, all it does is waste tons of money and time and it does a wonderful job of ruining people's lives.
    • I really don't like a president calling out news media outlets by name and whining about the media. Obama did it with FOX and talk radio and now Trump is doing it with CNN and the NYT's. It's one thing for each men's supporters to do it. But I don't recall GWB or Reagan or Carter calling out the media by name in public.   I don't buy the claim from some(nobody here) that doing such is a sign of a dictator(the same, btw, who cheered BHO doing it). It just makes a president look weak and whiny and looking for other's to blame for their own failures. Not that I'm a fan of the NYT's, but I do believe in freedom of the press even the press I personally don't care much for.   If you're an elected official, the press is supposed to be a thorn in your side
    •   This is what Del was probably talking about and yes he is right, we do have to pick a side or at least a candidate when we go to the polling booth but there is no need to defend every single move the candidate makes and vilify every single move the opposition makes.      I'm not sure what makes us think and behave the way we do, I didn't take enough psychology or anthropology courses in college to answer that question but I do know that to me it is even more repulsive than the small minded thinking that goes in to hating one sports team although they are basically the same as your chosen sports team. I can see liking and rooting for one sports team or political faction over another but the pure hatred for the opposite team is mind boggling to me.     These are the fine points of this article as I see it. Now would anyone like to have a discussion on these points?
    •   This paragraph is important because I believe that most people now when faced with a political discussion do indeed "turn off their intellect". It's the only way to get through the hypocrisy that arises when one chooses a side so completely.

    • 2.27.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   Ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition.   On the Minnesota side, we are seeing walleyes being caught  on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits. Canada is still producing but the crappie bite has been hot and cold within the last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold.   Until next week! Sunset Lodge Ice Team
