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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
