I was wondering why I felt a breeze. Yesterday morning the morning temps were in the low fortys up north. The smell of fall is in the air. Driving to work I don't know if I'm imagining it or not but the trees look to be changing colors. Betting it has to do with the dry weather we have had the last month and a half. This morning on the way to work there were puddles every where. Rained from mid-night till this morning. Ground is so dry the water is just puddling up. I have everything ready to go in the garage already. Just need to knock my arrow and see the buck I have been seeing all summer.

we were up at Itasca last weekend camping and there was a tree or two on the wilderness drive that we biked by changing colors.

I was just in the BWCA this weekend and happened to see a few trees that appeared to be changing already. Sad that it's been that dry. Does get you in the fall spirit though!! Football and hunting, it's an unbeatable combo.

We are now down to 26 days and can't believe summer is gone and we are prepping for Hunt 06'. Several of the oak trees in my neighborhood are starting to drop their acorns.

Isn't this a little early for this to happen? Does that mean that the deer will be keying in on the acorns or will that be long gone time Sept. 16th comes around?!?

If I remember right, I don't think we had a real good Acorn drop last year but the year before was awesome!!! Hope we have a good acorn year as I hunt around a lot of oaks!!! WOW WE ARE GETTING CLOSE!!

Only 5 more sleeps for me. Elk and whitetail open the 28th Aug. It has been dry up here and I don't wish the farmers any bad luck but hope it doesn't rain for a couple of wks as I will be hunting a couple of watering holes deep in the bush. I was out there last weekend it looked promising but it did last year but the timbers showed up and run the elk out of the area.

I have never stuck an elk with the bow but lots of deer so hope to draw first blood this year on the elk.

I have been practising with the broadheads for a little over a month now and it feels good but I am sure the blood will get pumping if an elk shows up.

Good luck to all fellow archers this fall.

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.

      I really hope they don't screw this place up. I love it out there and have done a lot of hunting there. I sure wish there were fewer horse trails. It shouldn't be so easy for hunters to access all the woods. That makes it harder to get away from the guys who want to hunt no more than 50 yds from a gravel road.    The dunes seems like a pretty special place to me. DNR does a lot of things that leave is scratching our heads, let's hope they manage this place properly.

      Im staying at Arrowwood July 2-5 and looking to catch some 'eyes for a fish fry or 2. Never been to the area before so I dont have much to go by other than my overall knowledge of Walleye fishing elsewhere. Ill probably be fishing early mornings and dusk for obvious reasons, but also because my boat will be used for the majority of the days for entertaining the girlfriends family. Im open to fishing not only Darling, but Carlos and Le Homme Dieu as well. 

      From what ive read and can see on Google Earth, the lakes are pretty clear, and from experience, usually means tough walleye fishing for this time of year. -I grew up fishing Woman Lake in the Longville/Hackensack area and that lake is as clear as they come. The only way we can snag some 'eyes in the summer is to fish the deep weed lines. Is that the approach I should be taking on these lakes? Does dragging rapalas across mid-lake flats produce? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Gavin.

      Ha, I've read stories about that lake being filthy. And I know about those warnings on the link you posted I just wonder if this stuff is blown out of proportion. Reason being I can't find any confirmed cases of people having mercury poisoning from eating freshwater fish. I know mercury poisoning does exist but can we really get it from fish? You'd think if we could then there would be cases down south where folks are eating catfish from the Mississippi.    We ate a few 30+" Pike during the ice season, I ate more than my wife, and I only did that from lakes that are safer according to DNR and MDH fish tissue surveys. I kept it to once a week for her and I ate the rest. I went over the one meal a week rule several times for myself, but then went a while without taking home fish while the season was closed. I'm not glowing yet haha.    I also don't understand why walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat per those surveys when Pike are above them on the food chain.

      Surely they have a Terrova on the floor. Doesn't matter what size THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Also, boat dealers have showrooms with all kinds of stuff mounted on boats.

      Stopped in this morning and it looks like it should be good to go.
