Its early and tough to recognize one deer from another, but i've been freshening up my mineral sites and decided to put a camera out and see if anyones home? Looks like a few boys around starting to work on this years boney crowns!

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.

The trail pics are excellent shots. What camera did you use?

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

    • Like he said. After opening weekend there may be few fish left.  Here's a little view why! 😉        
    • Welcome to the forums.   There is another company here in Minnesota that gets used a lot called Mattracks that you may want to look up. What size motor do you have? It takes a pretty good size motor to turn these tracks and get any speed out of them.   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjohMjdlYbjAhWPGM0KHSFVAFoQFjAAegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mattracks.co%2F&usg=AOvVaw0l1s0-KJl2XMVmGU069TQt  
    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.
