We are in 72 and are really pumped. I watched the moose calling video again last night and just can't wait to be out there. Good Luck and Be Safe!

89B,

Where you guys staying? We'll be at Lake Jeanette campground. Look around for the black suburban and Prowler camper.

good luck to all of you that are going this year. it looks like they should be in full rut. calling should be great if the wind stays calm.

I may be staying at a bunkhouse near the moose loop road, but I'm still waiting on a confirmation. If that doesn't work out, I may be staying at the same campground as you, or the Echo Lake campground. If that doesn't work out, then I'm just camping out in the back of my truck on one of the turn-offs...a blue Dodge Dakota with a black topper and the Ruger stickers on the side. It's all good to me. grin.gif If I see you, I'll stop by and maybe we can share a coffee, pop, or beer and compare notes.

We hunted Zone 28 Saturday with no luck. Lots of wind made for difficult calling. We managed to call in a couple timber wolfs but that was it. Pull out today because of the rain. Anyone have any luck?

I just spoke with my roommate. He got around a 900 lb. bull out of zone 21 today around noon.

BigDrift,

Did you guys get one? I never made it to your campsite...was always coming out in the dark and was too tired and hungry, so I'd head right for the sleeping quarters. Hope you had luck. I saw a massive bull (I keep calling it a "postcard bull" to my friends) on the first Tuesday and ended up with a small bull on the second Saturday. After packing out the meat, I am glad it was a small one. wink.gif

Thanks benelli_dude for the tips! grin.gif

If you are talking about whoever was driving the white truck from Cook, I'm not sure. I never saw him. I know I heard him calling for a few days in a row and I saw his truck parked at the same clearing this past Sunday, so I'm guessing that guy didn't get one yet. I saw a lot of sign in that Lake Jeanette clearing I was hunting when you saw me, and I even saw the back-end of one that first Monday in there, but I moved closer to the other end of the zone. No hunters down there. That's where I got mine. The guy from Melrose that I met at the place I rented out was coming back this week, so I know he didn't get one yet.

Good job!

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
