Okay guys, I just got done talking with The Captain following "The Talk" With the CO we had an issue with. Capt. said that after talking with us, he wasn't 100% sure that we were innocent until interviewing a few others after us. He said that the people that called us in just said that they saw someone with a muzzleloader and shotgun shoot a deer and leave it and used our vehicle as the vehicle that they came it. The people that actually did it were driving the same type of vehicle, but w/o a trailer. She also said that things were handled differently with me being a FAS instructor. She said that he would've grilled us harder had I not brought that up. She also said that she agreed that he did grill us pretty hard even after seeing the guns and making sure that all rounds were accounted for. She said that the CO said that Sandmannd's vest "only covered his chest." Whatever. Sandmannd has since gotten a vest that covers way more of his upper body so now no one can complain.

I called her yesterday just to follow up with what KF had said. I have to say she was extremely nice to me. She told me all of what KF had said. Sounds like there were two goofs out there in the same type of rig with no trailer and differant color. Couple of guys came out of the woods that he questioned and verified we didn't shoot that day. Thanks to them, whoever they are. Had a nice conversation with her and she told me of a place to try out there if I can make it out because she said it would be nice for me to get my first deer. That was real nice of her, but I won't be able to make it out so I'll have to try next year. She also said the CO was a concerned that we were that upset and asked her if he could call us. She told him probably not a good idea because of how PO'd we were about it. I told her that I have nothing but respect for law enforcement and what they do. I reiterated that I have no problem with being questioned for what he was told we had done. Just would have been nice to have been nicer when he was done. Once she said he wasn't convinced when he left us it made more sense to me. I'm not saying he couldn't have handled it differently, but it's nice to hear their perspective. I told her that she could tell him I hold no ill will towards it and understand the circumstances were out of the norm. I also told her if he wanted I would welcome his call and he saw me in the furture or needed me for anything in the future that I'm fine with him.

All in all, just chaulk it up to an experiance that probably won't ever see again.

That's a good ending to a difficult situation.

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
