hey guys,

First of all i have zero idea on how to get the pic uploaded big enough to make out, but it is my profile picture... so that will have to do, unless someone tells me how to upload.

It goes like this...

Opening weekend of Mn gun season i went bow hunting in northern wisconsin, and hit a doe that we never found and blew my chances on a really nice 8 pointer at 25 yds.

The next weekend was the second weekend of gun season( i hunt in zone 1,) and it was my only weekend to go to my cabin at test my skills. The saturday of the weekend i was up early and out in the snow. It was a gorgeous morning in the snow storm, but no deer. My dad was lucky enough to harvest a doe that morning, to go nicely with his buck from the weekend before. After doing all the business to get her preped, we went to have lunch. No one else saw deer, so that was disappointing.

That evening i went to a different stand that has produced in the past. Someone was in our stand, and i had to ask him nicely to leave. I saw one deer way at the end of a firing lane run through.

YAY!! a deer.

The next morning was me up and early, my dad was planning to make a drive to me and arrive at my stand at 10 am. Then we would go home from there. I got to the stand at about 6 and hunkered in. Listening to the ravens and squirrels wake up, i kept imagining my trophy buck walking out. At 730 am i heard a big animal jump into the young poplars from the trail i hunt next to, i finally saw the deer, a doe, at about 50 yards coming quickly into the first lane. She jumped the lane and stood in the brush between the two lanes. Then she walked out into the lane and i pulled up and BOOM!!! Cloud left she didnt even flinch. I got down and preped her for travel, got her to the 4 wheeler and got back in the stand at 8. I still had two hours til my dad pushed to me, and i had a buck tag to fill. Nothing happened for the next hour and a half except ravens and squirrels.

At 945 a deer came out of a different firing lane and into the woods, and then the next firing lane. I was ready there and pulled up to see two nice little pencils stiking out of his head. I didnt want to waste my buck tag on a little guy, because i still had muzzelloading to hunt. So off he went. At 955 am i looked in the same firing lane as the little buck and there was a deer broadside farther down than the little guy. It picked its head up and i saw antler in the sun light. He put his head back down, i grabbed my gun, and BOOM! It was over like that... I watched him rodeo jump and run into the brush. I thought i heard a crash about 5 seconds later, but who knows. I am a horrible shot with a rifle. I waited for my dad to come at ten... At 1025 i got down. I just couldnt wait anymore. I started walking down the lane to the last place i had seen the buck. My dad ended up coming right then and we took off together. We found hair and then blood, and the rest was history. It was a great hunt, a great story, and a amazing ending to my rifle hunting of 2007.

My dad is an amazing guy who has taught me so much about life in general, he is my best friend, and i wouldnt have it any other way. The buck ended up being a nice 8 pointer, the biggest either him or myself had ever shot. But, the story i have of my dad and i getting to share that moment together with my favorite hunting buddy was something i will never forget.

Sorry for the long story, there was more i left out for time sake. It was just a moment i will live on for the rest of my life.

Have a great day to all, and enjoy the time you spend with your "family" in the woods. Those stories in the end, is all you have.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
