Crop harvest reports Fall 2016...

Recommended Posts

OK, guys. Location, what kind of crop and when.

I'll start. Seen a guy getting started with the corn near Cannon Falls the other night. Gonna hunt a trail leading to that field this week if I get a good wind.

OK now, shoot.

Came through SD and MN into WI yesterday. A lot of the beans are out or being done now. Lots of corn still in but saw quite a bit being taken out.

Drove from Little Falls to Fargo today.  Most anything left in is corn, and more than I expected see.  Stands to reason for the amounts of water dumped in the area.

Some bean fields are so far done they're being disced for the winter.

It sure looks a lot like fall out there!  I was drooling over some of the birdy looking cover trying to see some roosters.

Actually, come to think of it, I saw hardly any ducks, some geese, no pheasants and no deer.  Huh, I suddenly feel disappointed!

I did see a coyote cross 115 in front of me on the east edge of Randall.  I guess that's something...

Was back out in bluff country in SE MN. Most corn is still standing. Saw some small strips of cut corn indicating they are slowly starting. Wacked a doe BTW.

Beans are gone, can see many ruts made by the equipment, no corn happening some fields are flooded badly yet in spots, the only gone corn is by the few that chop for cattle and even then some had to avoid the mud/standing water this is an hour north of the metro. Congrats on the doe, got me thinking tenderloins and backstraps.

Yesterday I drove from Detroit Lakes to Glenwood. Took a scenic route off the main highways. Looks like all the bean are out and the guys are attacking the corn fields. Lots of combines going but they have a lot of corn to get through....

I would say corn in my area is 80 to 90 percent gone, beans are pretty much all gone.  Combines and gravity boxes are not getting replaced with tractors and plows.  Still heavy farm traffic on the roads, be safe and respect that equipment on the road!   You can wait the extra 10 minutes to get to your deer stand if you have to follow farm equipment.  It's not worth your life or theirs to pass them in a dangerous location.  ( I see this every year)

Farmers are still contemplating their corn's moisture content around Center MN.  Debating if they want to dry it after harvest or continue to let it stand.  Of course some fields are out.

 

So I guess the prediction on whether the corn will be out by gun opener will hinge on your areas soil type and field drainage characteristics.

SE MN is slowly getting taken out. Was out to pick up some trail cams over the weekend and saw some combines in the process... Majority of the fields I saw from the road are still full of standing corn though.

Drove north to the cities today. Surprised to see so much corn still in the fields. In my area, east to the Mississippi River, much of the crops are out, west and north, many of them are still in.

    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.

    • Hmmm.  My cheapest camera is a Wildgame Innovations unit but I haven’t been a great fan of it.  It’s not the NANO version but though, just a cheap one I picked up in a small shop during a hunt cuz I felt I NEEDED one right then.   I do like my old Moultrie and am looking at the M50i as a much updated version of it.   Still comparing their line up.  If I just bought now, that’s what I’d go with.   That WGI 360 sounds like something I have to check out!
    • I have been a Wild Game Innovations fan for most of my time using cams.  I really really like the NANO version they put out.  Compact, only take 4 AA batteries, great battery life and the pictures have been very good quality.  That being said, last year I won a Moultrie Game Spy 2 at a company party and have been very impressed with it.  Same as the Nano, takes only 4 batteries and pictures are very good as well.  These two cameras are now my "go to" and I won't be needing to spend  100's on other cameras when these work great.  The one camera that I am thinking about getting though is the WGI 360 degree camera.  Supposed to be able to take pictures 360 degrees so you don't miss anything moving behind where a normal camera can't detect them.
    • yeah the last couple years have been rather tough for me, but all is good and I can't wait to get back into the stand.  Are you still working the Deployed Soldier/Disabled Soldier hunt at Ripley?  We stopped going as it was just too early in the season and weather was always so darn warm.  Wish they would have held it right prior to the "big" hunts at the end of the month.  Always a good time though.    You'll hear more from me in the time to come and look forward to hearing all your reports of the big one!!!
