My up north trip report!

1 post in this topic

Well let's just say it didn't start of too well. On Tuesday night (10-24-06) my truck was totalled because it started on fire and did extreme damage. I was able to borrow the girl friends dad's truck for the weekend. Head to Bemidji Wed. night. Hunted north of Bemidji on Thursday, got three between my brother and I (very poor shooting.) A lot of bird, mostly divers, we problably seen a thousand or so birds. Friday, not as many birds as Thursday. Friday night headed over to the Deer River area. Sat. morning hunted the Third River Flowage on Winnie, a lot of hunters, but literlly thousands and thousands of birds. There were big flocks of divers and mallards, ended up with 7 (all divers). Sat. afternoon hunted Little Cut foot, some divers, got 4 (this is between 5 guys). Sunday morning, went back to Cut Foot and shot 6 all ringnecks. While hunting Sunday Morning, we watched flocks of 100 to 300 Northern Mallards flying very high and flying south, so they are coming. All in all it was a good weekend, could have been better if the hunters could shoot better, but that is duck hunting. Well the next two weekends, I am deer hunting, so hopefully it doesn't freeze up to soon and I can get back out before the season is done. Good luck to the rest of you the rest of the season.

      I am looking at a new portable shelter this year. It would be ideal to get one that fits 3-4 people so I can take my whole family out. I am looking at the clam x400. My concern is the weight. Does anybody have experience lifting this unit up in the back of a truck or dragging it around or to move from spot to spot?  Any suggestions of other shelters to look at would be great. Thanks!

      Just wondering what you guys prefer for fishing fall walleyes down here in southern mn. I know the creek and redtail chubs work great on the northern mn lakes during the fall months but wasnt quite sure if our lakes responded the same down here or if a smaller profile would be the way to go.
