Hunting Carver Rapids Unit?????????

5 posts in this topic

does anyone from here deer hunt down there and if so what could I expect this weekend for pressure and what was your experience like when you hunted it?

My dad is going with me for the first time in many years and

want him to shoot a buck to keep the flame going for him.

Thanks in advance

Could anyone give me any pointers what areas to head for via email?

I have hunted that unit quite a bit without a lot of success over the years. There is always lots of sign but as they clear-cut much of that area years ago along the river, much of the area is covered in a very dense Popular brush/marsh thicket. The deer seem to like to hunker down in that Popular thicket and aren't in any hurry to come out. Both the northern and southern sections of the unit are good for deer. If they're duck/geese hunters in the northern part..head south towards Jordan...because the deer already have. Good luck.

Bring your full body armor if you do down there.

We were fishing in that general vicinity one day this weekend and had a large group of hunters that I was convinced were reenacting the OK Corral.

They denied shooting towards the river, but I know what it sounds like having a slug whiz by overhead. I seriously have never heard so many shots fired to take one doe (20 shots at the very least).

One of us had an orange hat on. We were never in danger as we were quite a bit below level ground on the river in a boat.

    •   Gee whiz, it took me 2 seconds to google it. Looks like it was The Hill.
    • Sure puts the Ion to shame.... 
    •     You're ok with the status quo, too, but you have never provided any rational explanation as to why.      
    • I am flying from Phoenix to Omaha tomorrow evening.  I do not remember the last time i drove in snow.  hopefully it will be plowed by the time i get in at 730pm.  
    • What's wrong with letting adults decide what they do with themselves and letting states make the calls when necessary?    As to your second paragraph, does oxycontin get treated like ibuprofen? Are all legal drugs treated the same or are there standards used for certain types of legalized drugs?    At the core I don't like the feds involved in regulating drugs,guns,tobacco etc but if I have to choose between making them illegal,which sends them underground where there is no consistency, no standards, no way if the consumer being able to know what they are buying and legalizing them where at least they are subject to some measures of consistency in manufacturing then I would grudgingly take the latter.    You always seem to get hung up on this all or nothing kick when there are other options that can be used.     
    • Well I went to the dealership to order my vinyl and lucky I did, one of the salesman told me the precut wood I had ordered is sized for carpet and not vinyl. If I use the vinyl I'd have a quarter inch gap or so in between the pieces...So now I'm gonna go with carpet which sucks since I had my heart set on vinyl...oh well
    • By the time the wedder morjits are done hyping it down here, it'll be the storm of the century, with thousands stranded and the National Guard dropping supplies from C-130's., pulled down the runway by herds of reindeer. 
    • I was up last weekend.  It was my 3rd trip of the year.  I canceled my rooms for my March trip.  Call the Hamilton House...2 rooms just opened up for the 8-11th of March.     There's a ton of Walleyes in LW, but debatable how many big ones.  Big fish seem to be in decline.  Pick any reason you want, but it's a fact.  The big fish are nowhere near as prevalent.  That doesn't mean you won't catch one...or multiple...but you're going to have to work.  If you're not in the fish, move.  If you find fish, but not bigger ones...move.   I'm a mover...I'll move 5 times in a day easy.  I know guys who will wait it out all day and they might be the guys who catch some big fish, but they're usually the guys who only catch a few eaters and nothing big.  just my opinion.  Good luck and above all, don't let all the fisherman completely devoid of courtesy be justification to abandon yours.  
    • hahaha just watched the 6 o'clock news, doesn't sound like anything north of the twin cities is going to get anything.
