Shooting

2 posts in this topic

There was a post started about the tragic "accidental" shooting of a 60 year old gentleman near Elbow Lake. It seems to have been slowed down by a moderator or whom ever. I totally understand, but I have to say Wallygals post really changed the tone of the posts. I am all about nixing a witch hunt, but the fact is someone died when it 100% could of been avoided. For those that don't want people to jump to conclusions, etc. What if it was your Son, Dad, friend or other loved one that was killed? You don't flipping pull the trigger, ever, if there is even a flicker of doubt in your mind where your hunting partners are. It was a accident, but most definetly one that could of been avoided. Prayers go out to the family of all involved.

Rozman, "someone died when it 100% could of been avoided."

Don't you think that this youngster is playing that over and over an over in his mind right now at this very second. I can tell you he is wishing that he could take back that bullet. If I could I'd take on the roll of consoling this kid right now I would.

To use this as a learning experience now is not the right time.

I have a youngster that is getting into shooting and hunting. I don't want him to hurt himself or anyone else.

I've been vigilant on his firearm safety.

If I use any incidents as a learning experience its between him an I. I won't publicly use any tragedy to do that for anyone on a forum. Not when it it puts more suffering to those families involved.

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
