Love the dedication Speedy! If I knew the Southern part of the state, I wouldn't hesitate to lend a hand or offer up some advice. Good luck this year and hope you come away with an awesome story to share!

Is that Fishing for Ducks on Lake Mille Lacs?
Might not be but sure looks like. My buddies and I participate every year. None of us have ever have caught a fish but had some fun and a little luck in the raffles. It's a huge fundraiser for Ducks Unlimited in the state.

Its an ice fishing contest in forest lake to win a truck I believe.
Update from the desert. Hunting is very slow in the Santa Rita's. I've only seen 3 does and no javi since Saturday. Doesn't seem to be much sign either so not sure what's up. At least it's warm. Was -17 when I left and 81 when I got to Tucson. dang near a 100 degree temp swing! I'm still acclimating to the heat, low humidity and constant sunshine.

Errrrr...how the heck do you kill one of these little buggers! Finally see a buck and he stops on his own at 20 yds so aimed true but he ducked anyway and the arrow bounced off his back. After a frustrating search for the arrow looked up and it was 10 feet up a tree!
He was just barely a 3x3 so not huge but he would have been a trophy for me. Also had a spike come by the same trail but I'm sticking to my goal of 3pt on one side.
I think I have it on video so will post when I get home. This makes it 3 shots at coues and no blood. Starting to think I'll never kill one.

I've had similar situation in reverse. I went rifle deer in central Wisc. past several yrs. you get one buck tag and several does tags. we went 3 yrs without even shooting a doe!
hang in there- lots of close calls means your doing most things right . just need that one time for it to be -"TAGIING TIME"
I have managed small bucks the last 2 yrs in wisc. but both were the dreaded crossbow season.
I passed on the rifle season - unless you like - 0 degrees hunts to single digit
the end oct. first Nov. in wisc. is great - though we did get an early snow- lol
so never knowing what the weather will do - is nation wide.
Proper meat care equals the tastiest table fare!
