Opening weekend results

Area 247

We ended up 1 for 4, my youngest shot a nice doe Saturday evening. We saw doe's, fawn's and two small fork horn bucks. 1 guy is hunting all week, leaving next Friday. Me and my boys will arrive Friday night to try and fill our remaining tags Saturday and Sunday. Man was it WARM both days, 71 Saturday and 68 Sunday. Windy Sunday and pretty calm Saturday. First time ever hunting MN gun opener in shoes, short sleeve shirt and blue jeans under my orange. The bucks we saw were harassing the doe's and they wanted nothing to do with them, the fawns were still with the doe's. Allot of shooting Saturday, I think a fare amount of that was duck hunters. Sunday had less shooting. Weather looks like it's going to be about the same next weekend as this past weekend. Will be interesting to see if the big boys will start to move or not.

Dropped my sons deer off at the meat market this morning and they guy said yesterday they took in 212 deer. Most single day amount they have ever had.

246

2/5....Seen a lot of deer passed on some small ones. Deer were every wear Saturday. Bucks chasing does it was fun to see. Sunday was the Dead Sea. Nothing moving at all and only heard 5 gun shots on public land.

Seen hundreds of deer every night in the fields driving back from the woods to the cabin.

I still can't believe 246 was lottery. There's deer everywhere!!

Fun Weekend..

Hey Jeff, nice to hear from you.  I missed Sat morning, sat Saturday night through Monday morning never saw a deer on stand.  Saw 8 total (group total) all from one stand.  

Just on the other side of woods from you.  Other tan the first 1hr of day it was dead by us.

Definitely deer around, but our sightings were limited.

My group has seen 2 forks 1 spike and 3 3pts along with a glimpse of a nice one with some good antlers. Haven't fired a shot yet. Does are scarse though, but better than last year when we saw 5 wolves opening weekend. Zone 183 Nemadji Forest.

We got 3 f 12. 2 bucks and a doe. Everything we hunt is either corn or submerged in water so I didn't expect much in terms of success which is fine. My two younger brothers each shot a deer with well placed shots which was great because they have not had great success in the past. I think I was happier seeing them get deer than if I had filled mine to be honest. I have gotten plenty over the years and now enjoy the younger hunters filling their tags and learning to figure things out. The weather was unbelievable.

We went 2-5 with a Buck and Doe. 4 Wolves seen on stand as well and yes the weather was unbelievable but suked if you asked me. I like cold and snow to keep the deer moving and looking for food. I spent most of the Hot days trying to stay awake and falling off my stand! :(

    • heard from 2 folks who went the other day, their boat not good the other good!!  go figure..  same charter company...
    • Nice fish.  Heading out to Lake Michigan in 2-3 weeks.  Haven't decided exactly where yet.
    • We were on Kinn's boats out of Algoma.  
    • What port did you head out of Duff?
    • A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you. 
    • It was slow for us this year, steelhead on Sunday afternoon, and only a couple nice kings on Monday. But the potential for a big fish is there again this year.   My friend is a little on the small side, always makes nice fish look HUGE.   My early morning fish came in at 23.6 lbs. A pound and a half heavier than the top pic.      
    • Nice work, that looks incredible. And I'm a big fan of the grey motif.   Thanks for the show and write up.
    • Yeah we brought it up to our cabin and sleep in it if there are a bunch of people up there. Thanks!
    • Are you guys using it as a summer camper as well?  Super Product right there!  😎
    • Thanks! It weighed in over what I thought which was disappointing. It was right around 7000 lbs with full propane tanks and some other stuff in it. We actually weighed it just after getting spray foamed and it was already at like 5000 lbs I’m not sure how others that did the same style steel stud house have a finished weight around 5500 lbs.    The cost in materials was above 20K but below 25 still too scared to finish adding the receipts. We really tried to use the best materials we could find and not cut any corners. When I was pricing stuff out before we started my ballpark was 19K but I forgot to add a tv screws wire and little stuff like that.    Yeah it took a lot of time but I enjoyed it for the most part. I’m actually getting kind of bored now and don’t know what to do with all the free time.
