Sometimes you get a second chance.

Good news from deer camp! Wisconsin gun season is still going strong. A good buddy from our camp shot a dandy 10 pointer on Sunday. While capeing it for a mounting, he found a broadhead burried deep in it's shoulder. He hit this same deer last Sunday exactly one week ago, same time, same place. The buck was in fine shape and still running does.

Always good to know a wounded deer is not neccessarily a dead deer.

Good for Him! I have experienced the pain of losing a buck like that and I know how he felt. Glad to see that he did get a second chance!

That's great to hear; good for him! I too know the heartbreak of losing a deer like that while bowhunting...no second chance for me, but I appeared to catch the shoulder on the biggest buck of my life. It's the first deer I've shot and not recovered; not fun. I hope it's okay and walking the woods for another year!

Pics coming soon...(thanks Nate!)

Remember, this was taken on heavily hunted public land. You can still see the broadhead hole high in the shoulder.

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
