I wasn't all settled in until after legal shooting time even. I sat there for a while and I got really cold with the wind just ripping through my body up in the tree. I decided to snuggle up in my coat and thats when I dozed off. Once I woke up I saw a doe standing/feeding at 30 yards and closing, I didn't know if I should stand up right then or not because she was behind a big popple. She then started wandering off to my right, so I promptly got up grabbed my bow and drew on her only to hit my elbow on the tree I was in, I figured she would of seen me but didn't I had my elbow propped up against the tree when I let it sail and it burried in her chest and she took off so fast I thought I missed. I let her sit for half an hour aand I looked but didn't find anything. I looped around where she had run off to and so I walked down this trail to another stand of mine that I could see from my current perch. I didn't find anything so I intersected the trail where she had run off to and found a spec of not so good looking blood but decided to look further only to find a somewhat decent blood trail with spots here and there, I looked into this quagmire of pine trees to see her piled up. Success! I use those rage broadheads and was expecting to have a blood trail a blind man could follow but it was very sparse blood trail. Later I found out that all of the blood pooled above the diaphram despite a low exit hole. I double lunged her as well as hit the stomach. made for a fun gutting job. A doe in the freezer beats a stinky gut job any day. the bh sliced through a rib like butter. only thing was the arrow stuck in her the whole time maybe contributing to the little blood. She only went 60 yards tops though and only 20 yards from the atv. grin.gif couldn't have planned it any better.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T
