I misread the post. I thought you were going to plant a food plot this fall and wanted the weeds dead. I don’t know what to tell you on the weed problem. 2-4-d will most likely kill most of what you planted in your food plot along with the weeds. If it was me I’d kill it down with round-up and plant a food plot for fall like turnips or something.e.fork-walleyeParticipantAugust 3, 2016 at 12:09 pmPost count: 171
No matter what you’re going to be planting in it I’d spray it with round-up and kill everything first. Once all the weeds are dead then work work it up to get all the trash ground up and get ready for planting. We just planted a plot a couple days ago and disked it twice and then ran a drag section over it to level it out.e.fork-walleyeParticipantJuly 22, 2016 at 6:43 pmPost count: 171
The deer won’t do anything different crossing from property to property. Most likely most of them have been raised there and the property isn’t new to them. You’ll have the best luck hunting mornings or nights. Mid day hunts usually aren’t productive until the rut starts in November. When the rut starts you can hunt all day.e.fork-walleyeParticipantJune 28, 2016 at 12:26 pmPost count: 171
I didn’t start walleye fishing until about 11 years ago right after high school. I only used live bait (nightcrawlers) up until last fall when my friend had me try a Gulp minnow. I was skeptical to begin with but did catch a lot of fish with the Gulp so now I’m about 50/50 with nightcrawlers and Gulp. If one isn’t working I try the other and have had decent luck. I haven’t really used any other baits as far as those two. I’ve thrown a twister before and have used a minnow but I seem to do better with the others. I’m not sure if I’m not quite fishing them right or what.e.fork-walleyeParticipantJune 24, 2016 at 12:16 pmPost count: 171

My biggest was a 27″ earlier in this thread but I have since caught a 28″ on the East Fork of Des Moines.

I usually clean on the tailgate of my truck. I do have a portable fish cleaning station and if I have a lot to clean I’ll use that. I typically use an electric fillet knife. I just fillet them and put them in a freezer bag and suck the air out. I usually only clean walleye.e.fork-walleyeParticipantJune 20, 2016 at 12:03 pmPost count: 171

I’ve been fishing the East Fork north of Humboldt the last couple weeks. I was catching a few small walleyes (8-10″) and small catfish about the same size. Went out Sunday for about an hour around 8pm and caught 4 small cats and 2 walleyes. All of those were small too. I went again last night and caught 2 small cats under a pound and the gnats and the mosquitos were awful and I didn’t have any bug spray so I couldn’t stand staying real long. The water is now pretty dirty again and will be getting dirtier and higher over the next week or so.e.fork-walleyeParticipantApril 5, 2016 at 11:58 amPost count: 171

I’ve never shot them out of my gun. Most of the people I hunt with use them. I’ve seen deer go way to far or completely lost on good shots. I stick to the Winchester partition gold or platinum tips. They seem to put the deer down quicker with more knock down power. Of course, this is only my opinion.e.fork-walleyeParticipantNovember 30, 2015 at 11:28 pmPost count: 171e.fork-walleyeParticipantJune 29, 2015 at 5:44 pmPost count: 171e.fork-walleyeParticipantApril 27, 2015 at 8:32 pmPost count: 171
If the tree is truly an Elm it will be dieing sooner than later I’d bet with the Dutch Elm disease that went through years back. If you have enough room at your place I’d build a distance far enough away that the tree won’t land on it when it falls. Elm trees can look pretty decent and within a couple years be dead. One strong wind could take it down. I know it may cost to remove it, but may save you some money in the long run.
