This evenings grouse hunt.

4 posts in this topic

I made it out to canosia this afternoon. Right after the rain the grouse were out. I kicked up four in about an hour, then after that it went stale. confused.gif Still alot of foilage in the woods. Those grouse pulled a disappearing act quick. The one that I did get though had about a six inch tail fan, real nice male. Forgot how pretty they are!!

Anyhow, does anyone know how much pressure boulder lake wma gets. I was out there the other day and walked the whole trail system and saw one bird. confused.gifconfused.gif I am sure that its a good place, but I must have hit it at a wrong time.

I am still learning about the places to hunt in the duluth area. Hopefully I will have a great report for you guys after Sunday.

Hmmm, I always done well at BLMA. The trails are well traveled. Step off of the m and look for a mixed forest area with plenty of mid age aspen and you should see some

Some of those areas do get alot of trail pressure. That is particularly true of canosia, boulder, and buzz ryan. If I hunt one of those areas, I either do it first thing in the morning when I know that I am the first one through on the trails or I will venture well off the trails and hunt in the woods. If you get off the trails, it doesn't really matter. If I want to hunt trails in the afternoon, I usually venture further out of town and hit trails that are unlikely to have been covered. Good luck

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
