I am new to writing in the forum but I have a subscription to D&DH amgazine and absolutely love it. To the issue of hunting in MN I went early season antlerless hunting October 11-12 and saw lots of deer where I go hunting in NW MN up by pembina. I got there a day early and scouted a farmstead I had just acquired the rights to hunt to and saw a lot of deer moving around. I saw a 6 point buck scraping the ground and going after a licking branch, a few things I have never seen before-really cool to see it up close and not on TV. I have also put up a trail camer at my in-laws place by Detroit Lakes and have gotten a lot of images of deer. Got some good pictures of a 5 pointer with a big body, a 8 pointer and what I think is a 10 pointer with a huge body. The problem is that most of the pictures were between 12 and 4 am. Do you guys know of any way to increase my odds of getting these deer to come out and "play" durring the daylight hours. This past weekend it snowed about an inch or two at my inlaws place, my father in-law has said that there has been a lot of scrapes and rubs in the trees, so the bucks are starting to get a little feisty.
Hope this helps ayone reading this
