Just a huge thanks to Cheffrey and Grand Superior Lodge for a fantastic spread tonight! Man Im still stuffed!

When we got home the wife and I took the dog for a walk to try and get circlulation back in our legs. I think my belt shrunk 4 notches at the table and I had a hard time feeling my toes. wink.gif

When we got home my wife crashed and Im not far behind.

Anyone looking for a good wild game feed should keep Cheffrey and his crew in mind. Oh and the South Shore Brew wasnt bad either. grin.gif Thanks to Badger for a nice variety of drink.

Frank and Lota is was nice to see you and your better halfs. I hope you guys all had a safe drive home. Those deer were crazy on the way home. shocked.gif

Who knows maybe you guys will be famous in the Big City. I think that camera man really liked you guys. cool.gif

Northlander, nice to see you again and nicer to see your lovely wife. Ha!

Cheffery and crew put on one heck of a spread. Last year my wifes favorite was the ravioli rabbit in a cream sauce. This year she loved the rabbit in a red suave.

After those dishes I might have to let Jr go jihad on the Cottontails on our garden. My favorite was the grouse & portabella mushrooms. Amongst that was Bore-kabobs, Antelope & curry sauce, bison salad w/blue cheese dressing, Rattlesnake casadias, Pheasant, Venison Swirls, and on, and on, and on.

On the way home we almost had venison on the grill a couple times.

It sounds like I missed a good time also. I'm finally done with my two weeks of schooling at work and I was able to get the rest of deer camp in order with the help of LoonASea and my Dad on Saturday.

I spent the last two hours putting things away in the garage for the season and I'm giving some serious thought to heading down to the French and float a couple of crawlers for a few hours.

I'll do my best to make the next game feed when it comes around next time. I think Cheffrey should practice a little more of his talent at our first ice fishing outing for the season. Sound like a good plan to anyone else??

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
