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.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
