Gun opener

1 post in this topic

Friday: the brother-in-law went early to set up deer camp and do a little grouse hunting. He went to check on the stands and found a huge oak tree blocking the ATV path to his stand. The oak tree was freshly cut by chainsaw. He cleared the path and continued to check on his permanent. He found that his permanent stand has been cut down: no not just the stand but the 4 large trees which were used to build the stand were cut down. This was in St. Croix State Forest.

There were hunters everywhere. Appearently, one of our group member (ex-group member, now) went out and did some advertising to the mass media about how great our location was. He also brought in his own group now but the advertisement brought in hords of other groups.

Saturday was slow. Sunday, well, let's just say our locations were hit with unethical small game hunters. They must have given up on hunting deer and roamed for squirrels right under our tree stands (literally) while making eye contacts with some of our group.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
