I just put out my trail camera today. Reapplied the mineral lick, which I was surprised to see a decent sized hole in the ground where they have continued to paw at. I'm excited to see some pics again, I've never put it out this early in the year.

Have seen a few fawns running around already. Almost stepped on one while morel hunting the other day. I have a few cameras out, only checked the one so far. Not too much going on, but got the first "bone" of the year on this scruffy fella.

What type of mineral were you dumping around that stump?


Lucky Buck. Its primarily salt like all the rest, but I cant find a better product as far as "draw power", especially when it comes to getting pictures. It doesn't take much either.

Lunker, that little guy looks like hes got the "barnacle burrs"! You may have something there! grin

Nice to see some pictures showing up! The growth certainly seems to be a bit behind in MN this year...

Looks like maybe a 2 year old there irish, he seems to have some decent bases to start with. It will be a lot easier to tell what there gonna be once they get the brow tines up.

Checked this camera on a different property for the first time. Lots of pics, mostly the same few does and a couple of yearling bucks who made it through, but the buck in the 2nd pic below may have some potential, already showing some branching on his right side; we will see.

That's a great pic imbass - hard to beat bucks on licking branches during shooting hours! May has been pretty quiet in my neck of the woods. A few critters & a score of morels was about it. Hopefully some good velvet on the next pull!

That Bushnell sure takes some nice saturated photos stick! Im sure the velvets coming. It drives me nuts seeing these bucks now and not knowing which ones they are. They just need to grow a little more!

Cool pics everyone

    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.
