Theodore Wirth Park

1 post in this topic

I'm lucky enought to start and end every business day with a brisk ride home on a bike. I take a wiggly little back route through the Wirth park area. This afternoon (within site of my usual archery range) I ride within 20 feet of this enormous buck. Even without the big fat swollen neck, he was intimidatingly large. And he had fist-sized antlers starting on his head. He's gonna be a biggun'! My wife works for a company that backs up to the railroad tracks near there. In the early fall, I've stumbled upon bachelor groups of 10 or more mind blowing bucks nuzzling and romping around on the blacktop of her parking lot. I'd swear that acre for acre, that area has more and bigger bucks than anywhere else I've ever seen.

Wouldn't it be great to fling an arrow through those trees? Surely some tree hugging nudist sunning themselves on the shores on Twin lake would have a coronary at the thought of killing one of his furrry friends, but the thought of dragging a once in a lifetime buck out of a park within sight of my office building would be pretty darn cool....

Anyone else have much experience around this park?

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
