I am in the beginning stages of lookfing for some hunting land to purchase. I want to have a place my son and I can make some memories. I have seen a lot of land for sale in the onamia area. How is the deer hunting in this area? It seems like land prices are reasonable. But I seem to remember deer numbers being down. Anyone with expeirience in this area?

I frequent the roads to the west of onamia and into eastern Morrison County.

I see plenty of deer near roads.  Lots of low ground and timber in between roads.

Wolves are also common in this area.

There is a lot of low land around Onamia but in a lot of respects, you want some of that on your acreage.  Having some agricultural activity nearby would be a plus, obviously.  The one thing that bothers me about that area is it’s generally really flat.  Deer and other game are definitely inhabiting those woods but I’ve wondered how predictable their movements would be.  

 

I’ve never hunted it though, just commuted for almost a year out of Onamia proper.  I got to know the sweet spots, and they usually coincide with some terrain chnages which are few and far between.

 

Thats my view from the road anyway.

Also a lot of deer between Atkin and Malmo area. Another big this to look at is the wolves. They might not be there now but will return and can decimate your deer populations in a hurry.

    • Nice win last night with Kepler & Schoop doing the heavy lifting. Some tough but good work done by the bullpen too.  Yanks beat the Indians as well.👍
    • 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.
