Whats 66 minus 12 ?

7 posts in this topic

I stood there talking with Jim Lonetto about his 21 point, 221 # whitetail buck. A buck that I had dropped the paint brush for and drove down to Fishermans Corner after getting a tip from a friend of a monster buck being registered there.

Jim was hunting with his grandson Kyle yesterday when Jim shot the deer toward evening. Darkness set in and the duo decided to let the evening pass and recover the deer in the morning. Is there anything about the hunt that stands out for you I asked. Jim says yea, whats 66 minus 12? um, err, ah its 54. Thats how many years Jims been hunting. Starting out as a 12 year boy, Jim said its taken a life time to get a buck like this. Truly a buck of a lifetime it was.

If I don't talk to you, you and Austin have a good hunt in WI then come back and get that city buck. I have one tip for you though, stop talking to the deer.

Frank hope the add works. I will try to stop but it is hard after 524 hours in a tree stand and the deer all have a name and report for work but I have nothing for them to do. So we hold a class. How not to get hit by car's we will have to see what they have learned. I must get a real job soon to much time in the woods chat later smirk.gif.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
