Poor me...

I just had to whine since it looks like I'm going to have to miss my first deer opener since the age of eleven.

I was luck enough to live through a serious skin infection on my leg which plopped me in the emergency room and intensive care for 4 days when I went into toxic shock. Thats the good news that I'm thankful for, but the hunter in me is going crazy since I'll be limited to elevating my leg in a clean environment on opener. My goal is to be 100% by muzzleloader though.

Sorry to hear that Gorilla. Best of luck with your recovery. I am sure there will be a big buck left for Muzzy season grin.gif

my wife had a bad infection that got into her blood after our first kid was born. the doctor said just 20 years ago people died from stuff like that.

I would spend more time being thankful than sad, you can always get them in a few weeks with the smoke pole!

Hope you are feeling better.

Thanks guys, don't get me wrong though, I am very thankful to be able to hunt again.

I thinks the deer can sense my weakness, there were three of them 70 yards out the backdoor last night.

Good luck this weekend fellas...

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
