I used to live in Red Wing and I think that whole area in the river bottoms is PRIMO big monster buck territory... Very similar geography to Buffalo Co Wisc. and we all know what that produces.

My kind of gal! (no pun Rich) grin

Incredible buck... massive. I think it's about time to start looking for a place to hunt along the bluffs. My goodness.

I like how the pic with her is black and white.

Obviously trying to keep the hype out of the fact she wasnt wearing any orange clothing for the pictures in the field.

Dang, what a deer. I thought MN didnt have any big bucks. smile

Kelly, her husband, and especially her brothers have always been great hunters. Every year they put alot of work into deer hunting, especially on the food plot/planting end. My brothers and I each went to school with a member of the Otto family, so we know them quite well. With all the effort that they put into it, and the pedigree of the property they hunt, I'm not surprised by their success.

This is a deer they've been watching for some time now, and it's a testament to what some hard work and passing on little bucks can do.

Probably will go top ten biggest muzzleloader bucks ever taken by a woman in MN.

Congrats!

Joel

I'd have to agree with you Quackaddict9. There is no way in [PoorWordUsage] that some of those points are over an inch. I also counted 17 points on this buck. I don't think this lady knows how to get the facts straight on her buck. I think she got really excited and didnt realize that the points had to be at least an inch long. She even named it after Brock Lesner.

Good god, who gives a rip how many points it has, the thing is a HOG and you are counting points from a picture, you have no idea what actually is a point and what is not. Always gotta be someone on this forum point out what they think is a flaw in something they have no clue about. You think since the time of the kill to when the story was reported she or her husband didn't count the points more than once?

The only bad thing about that buck is that there aren't more like it here in MN!

um yeah, for those who are ranting on me for saying who cares how many points, this and that........... I mentioned I'd take that deer in a heartbeat!!!

oh and about the orange, in the article they said that she took it off briefly because it was soo bloody.

    • 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:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂
