That's what the sno-blower toy is for. You did forget the Wolfies starting up.

A week ago, I had the best night of trolling 'eyes I've ever had, and yesterday my dog & I put up 30+ pheasants. To add to that, all the ponds/sloughs I saw yesterday morning were ICED OVER! Also bought a sled for my wife on Saturday - it's gonna be a good winter.

Yeah, baby - gotta love this time of year! wink.gif

Cliff- I forgot snow shoveling... but then again, that means ice fishing, usually, and with my season ending way too soon last year, I can't remember looking forward to the hard water this much in a long, long time. Snowblowers make it a bit easier, though!

Woofies are starting up, but I'm not much of an NBA fan...but for those who are, that's another great thing to add. Now if you want to talk NCAA hoops, I'm in on that one!!

I just wished it lasted longer. Too bad this is our busy time at work. I'd love to take September through November off. grin.gif

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400.
