Close Encounters

3 posts in this topic

Had this pretty neat thing happen to us this weekend while Grouse hunting.

While walking down our favorite trail my dog gets birdy and is working the ground real hard with her nose. We now are coming to a bend in the trail and what comes around the corner with it's nose on the ground is none other than Mr. Coyote.

I stop and watch all of this unfold right in front of me. They both continue to walk forward, toward one another, with their noses on the ground.

At about the exact same time they both must have gotten a nose full of one another and lifted their heads. They both stop dead in their tracks and look at each other from about 20 yards away.

After about a 10 count of looking at each other they both cock the heads inward as if to say "who are you and what are YOU doing here". This lasted for about another 10 count then the coyote meander into the woods to his right. My dog looks back at me like, " what the "H" was that"?

Stuff like this are pretty neat when they happen and fortunately they have been a pretty common occurrence for the 2 of us each year. Every weekend when we get home my kids ask me to tell them the latest "adventure story".

These are the times when you are in the woods that are the BEST!!!!

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
