Thanks Harvey! I live right next to the park and have been on the waiting list for the past two years... needless to say I've spent alot of hours scouting this park out and think I've found two extremely good locations. Now I just need to beat the other 180 hunters to the area. grin.gif

P.S. I saw a ten point buck two days ago on the border of the park, heading back towards it and it's in the area I'm hunting so hopefully he will cross my path.

He wasn't. frown.gif I did however stop at the park station headquarters and they had registered 6 deer... a 9 pt, 8 pt and 6 pt and the rest were does. One person reported seeing a monster P & Y type buck, but it didn't even get close to him. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

I'm hunting the Cleary Lake hunt not too far away. We only have 55 permits in this park, but its lots smaller.

I only saw 1 buck today. Long story short I made a poor shot and hit high. After over 3hrs of exhaustive searching This deer lived or made it more than 500yds without bedding down and left the property. I finally found my arrow 100yds after I lost he blood trail. STarted searching again and completely grid searched the area he was heading and still found no more blood. I'm extrememly disapointed, but we'll try again tomorrow.

      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.
