How about a countdown for the Wisc. opener?

4 posts in this topic

Can we get the counter going for Wisconson? Hope everyone is having a safe and fruitful season so far!

Now I know some of you must hunt in the state across the border, anyone.anyone? My countdown has begun as I have three little ones I'm bringing to deer camp the first weekend. Grandpa has already said he'd take out the oldest to hunt on Saturday night. She has been after me to hunt for the archery season so far and I just don't have the stand to fit two of us but I am hoping that she will get out with Grandpa and have a nice evening hunt. She is 7 and won't be shooting but the interest is there and I hope she will keep it in the future. I am resignned to being the camp cook and babysitter for the first weekend but am soooo looking foreward to just being up there. The other two are 4 and 2 and aren't quite ready to sit on stand yet but are showing interest in archery target shooting. Just a matter of time I guess. I don't know what my wife is going to think when the three of us head out to deer camp in the years to come! Hopefully she'll accompany us but if not ....look out mastercard!(OUCH!) I'll be happy as a pig in slop if the kids want to get out with me though! Good hunting, let's get the Wisconson countdown on the board!

I'm with you, deer season opens on the 18th. Well, I hunt MN too, so really there is more than 1 opener. But I wouldn't mind seeing another countdown!

This will be only the second time since I started deer hunting that I will miss out on Wisc. The Colorado elk trip hit the timeoff and cash supplies too hard to go on another trip even just for the weekend. The countdown will just rub salt in the wound, but I sure agree there are lots of FM'ers that head over to cheeseville for the deer season...

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
