Hey there. I'm new to this forum and was just curious if there are any bowhunters out there with deer movement information. I was just wondering what other people have been seeing or not seeing. So far everywhere I've been it's been pretty slow. Other hunters I've talked to have said the same thing.
They should start scraping and rubbing good here, seems like the last couple days it's picked up. I'm up north close to Duluth. Hows it been for others?
Hey birddog welcome to MFP sorry i hav't been around as much as i should but thats the way it goes..
most of the deer i have been seeing now are coming out after dark and staying out till the sun is just starting to come up your best bet would be to hit the deer way into the woods before they get to there feeding grounds ..
I know with the snw it can be hard to sit and wait but they will come sooner or later..
My party consist of a total of 4 hunters included myself(newly introduced to bow hunting). Since the begining of the season, we managed to take down 6 deers; 5 female and 1 male. Eating deers is good, the sport is great except for standing in a tree, and the price for us minesotan to hunt in Wisconsin is too expensive. We usuall be up in the tree by 5 am to wait for them before they start moving on daylight break. Well be up there tomorrow again and hopefully the big buck i saw last time will show up again.
My friend had an encounter with a trophy last night in the south metro. He grunted it in from 200 yards away and it got within 50 yards. It had a swollen neck all ready for the rut and the antlers were fully polished bone white.
This is the weekend of all weekends you want to be out bow hunting. The big of the big deer get taken on halloween weekend. Pull out all the stops: scents, grunts, and rattles. You want to get him so worked up for a fight that he'll be in on you even before you see him!!
