Frustrated

Recommended Posts

What do you have to do,

I had some land promised to me by a family friend not only this year, but prior years and years to come. For me only.

Not like this was his big track of land, I took some of his borderline not-so-good and a very small trek probably at most 5-6 acres and when I went down there today to do some final trail checking and last check on stands I hung over a month ago.

I go to find several stands, some within 50 yards of some of my sets. A truck (I talked to the drivers) sitting in a connecting driveway who now have permission that are also hunting in the area.

I think the land owner is old school who is like my Dad(who I miss greatly) that will not tell anyone "no".

I have actually seen less hunters on the public hunting land that I go to ocassionally that I am encountering on private land, I know the land owner can do whatever he wants, but man am I frustrated. Any adice how to deal with this?

Should I let this go and move or talk to the landowner and see what is going on?

This just sucks, I have been working this area for myself for a while thinking I am the only one hunting this piece and finding out what I did.

Do I go into the land and pull my stands and go elsewhere?

Sorry to vent, but the season is close and this really "balls up the situation"

    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
