BIG BUCK ENCOUNTER #1

2 posts in this topic

I just sat down in my tree when A northern Squall light up the sky and brought tons of lightning, thunder, and rain along with heavy winds. Back at the truck it was blue skies with another squall fast approaching. On the last hour of light I decided to bag it for the night and drove around scoping out clearcuts, powerlines, and open logging roads. No deer anywhere. I pulled in the driveway and got out of my truck. A whistle snort got my attention and I gasped out loud and my jaw hit the dirt when I saw him. ALL I COULD SEE WAS A ROCKING CHAIR ONTOP THAT DEER WEAVING AND BOUNDING INTO TTHE SWAMP!!!!! The rack was really thick nice beams well past its ears and tall. I thought a saw 5 tines on a side so possibly a ten point?? confused.gif I was kinda mad putting all this time into bowhunting with little to show for it and then MOJO is standing in my driveway. WHAT NERVE!!! It was awesome though! maybe its a sign.... grin.gif

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
