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.

    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
