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.

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
