the gift of a 30-30 from my father on my first outing

my grandad's 30-06 that I inherited

The great buy, couldn't pass up 7mm Mag my uncle sold me.

My favorites because of the story behind the rifles, not the caliber.

      Great picture, to me that says it all what life is about

      Nice...it's all about being out there in the glory of nature!

      Although no children of my own, I am incredibly thankful for my two nephews! They are my best pals and both like fishing, actually they like casting and playing with the worms. All part of the experience. I'm thankful for support from my mother and sister and to have friends that take me fishing. The last two years have been long days at the libraries and the hospital for graduate school so this forum has been nice to visit, read the reports, the stories and see pictures, essentially I've lived vicariously through many of you and I am grateful for that

      Mice the goldies are starting to color up again. They ate well here this winter. Cranes sound so cool!

      As I get older I find my appreciation and respect for time over material has grown tremendously. I appreciate long sunny days fishing with good friends. I appreciate my family, not nearly as m a's ny as there once was... but I love who's left❤  I appreciate my health, have been very healthy up untill this last yr😊 Hopefully I still have a few good yrs left😏  I appreciate my friends, some of them have been putting up with me since I was pretty young...lol   Very fortunate to have some close buddies. I appreciate HSO/FM...and all the great people I have met and or shared time on the water with because of this site😊

      Been many years since I had done the smelt netting, I was 15 at that time with the boy scouts of New London, mn.  Saw a program of guys doing it through the ice,  now that ice conditions are getting iffy, now I'm getting the bug to hit the lakes.  The Ice went out today on Buffalo lake, the water is going up, the crow river is backing up into the lakes.   Has anybody tired smelt fishing grindstone lake?  Looking for other lakes that may have those tasty little fish.

      Bert... chill out dude. Too much doom and gloom on tv, no need to bring that here too, man.... We can all hope and pray for the best😏😊

      Finally did a quick walk of my main hunting property yesterday evening.  Plenty of turkey sign even though I didnt see or hear any turkeys. Looking good. 
    • PeachyHans
      The red-wing blackbirds and robin's are back at my feeders with the dark eyed juncos hopping around. Lots of yellow finches this year! Plus I could have sworn I heard a sandhill crane the other day while hiking.

      Yeah, you might want to fix your post or you're eye sight! 🤭
