    Default Manitoulin Deer

    My dad had went to check or cameras yesterday and clear out a few trails due to blow down earlier in the year and lo and behold we have bucks on cameras! Even had a doe infront of the camera with two bucks sparring in the background on Nov 3rd at 10 am. Two bucks in background within the red circle<br>

    Wondering if anyone else has any updates on the rut around the lake Manitou area??

    Everyone scores big time there. I hear they aren’t huge bucks but there are plenty of deer.

    The deer is the west end of Manitoulin, all taste like " cedar ", but there are lots of them.

    Will definitely let you know what happens after the hunt, still one more week to go before we can get out there. 100 acre properties are perfect on the island for a good hunt!

    We hunt on the east end of the Island and yes some of the deer do taste a bit stronger of a wild game flavour but I've also tasted the most tender non game flavoured deer from there as well.. As for the size I do agree they are smaller than a mainland whitetail but they are definitely over run by them.

    We start feeding them 2-3 weeks before the rifle hunt and we check our cameras the night before oppening day....always plenty of pictures!

    Since we donít own the property we usually set up our cameras a couple months before season and check every 3-4 weeks. Usually only use a bag of apples or salt block but we have definitely seen some decent bucks!
