Hunted the last weekend of the WI early goose for my first goose hunt. Have hunted ducks for a few years now but never chased the honkers. Was slow, got out for only an hour or so saturday before the rain finally got to us.

Sunday we hunted a cut sweet corn field, in the rain again and saw quite a few flocks. Between he 3 of us we only shot 3 birds, but shot poorly on the few flocks we had come in, and should have had more. Managed one myself, which amazingly being my first goose and the only I shot that day, was a banded one. That made up for my poor shooting.

Kind of hard to see but I'm holding the banded leg up with my right hand.

I posted this already but here is my new pups pics with the geese I got last Friday. DSCF1461.jpgFirst few came in honking then after about 9 they all were silent. Got one that landed in the dekes without even knowing he was there till I heard the splashdown. I got the last 3 out of silent group of three that wanted nothing more then to land in the dekes. They never left the dekes...lol My pup is 9 months old and is a great dog and a pleasure to have in the boat. Hope she is going to be pointing pheasants in a few weeks...crossing my fingers! Good Luck all!

My buddy's first time hunting and my first goose hunt ever - got a cheap goose call and a couple decoys and managed to call in a bunch! Lots of fun. Shot 4, should have limited out but he'd only shot a gun once before and I was rusty. Got him hooked though, and it was a barrel of fun!

It's a 20 ft trailer. it's not mine, so I can't take the credit. We have a bungi (sp) cord that we run the entire length of the trailer behind the heads of the decoys. It holds the heads agains the wall. We have all of our feeders in bags. This works great cuz we can pull the 4 wheeler and utility trailer up between the dekes.

Also, I will post pics of the outside of the trailer, not done yet, but it WILL look sweet!

Sweet Pic grouse. Did the pup make the retrieves? It's a great looking dog.

He made three shorter retrives. I brought him out to the edge of the bog though with the boat and had him make them from there. After his first one he wanted to go right from the boat across the bog, but I was scared of him falling in one of the holes. The place I was hunting was 200 yards or so off the shore and there were pockets where he could have fallen into a hole and possibly ended up under the bog. I was probably just being over protective, but he is still young smile One was a diver though and was still somewhat alive and dived on him and he naturally used his front legs to pull him self up and circle and look for it! That was pretty cool to watch.

      Nice fish!  I was out near mille lacs area and the frog bite was killing it. Had a handful in the 17-20” range. 
    • Muskies
      It’s been a good summer so far. Of course, fishing always good but the boat traffic is down 75-80%. Drive out, pick a reef and start jigging!. Hopefully everyone can enjoy all parts of rainy next summer. Picture is from my wife and I Monday afternoon (August 3).Caught a total of 20 walleyes, 10 perch. We kept 6 slot fish for supper.
    • cgreene
      Great catch! I love fishing while raining. The just enjoy spending time in a lake with cool weather.
    • Mtnman
      Thanks for the update Muskies. Making preparations to head north in 3 weeks. We are so looking forward to cooler weather and the song of the loon. Love those pictures, keep them coming. Cheers and good fishing !! 
    • rayguy
      Was up this past week and fishing was really slow.  Trolled deep from Big Island to Foleys and back with one Northern the results.  Really was not a whole lot suspended in the 50+ water. There is no way to fish middle Whitefish on the weekend.  Every pontoon in the world now ties up around the sand dune island and the boat traffic is unreal.  Looks like Minnatonka ,  not a good thing. Did get a few small walleyes on leeches early morning , nothing to brag about.  Keep a eye out ,   lots of crazies out there.  Think the Sheriff needs to hit the lake for a few days to settle the Windsor crowd down a little.  
    • ozzie
      Anyone use the access at Trout Lake on the Whitefish Chain?  If so have you had issues with turning around in the parking lot due to the inspector parking in the no parking zone that is marked off with yellow lines?  I get into arguments every time I am at that access because the inspector feels they have the right to park in an area that is not to be parked in.  It is becoming annoyingly fun for me to get on them and educate them on where to not park!  This has to be one of the worst accesses in the state when it comes to traffic, space, and inspectors.  Many times they have an inspector there that will give you a 15 minute lecture on invasives even though you have heard his speech before!!!  Power trip and then some!!!!  I respect most inspectors I come into contact with, but WOW are some just go a little overboard on their inspection.  I have to laugh my ass off when the inspector runs us over about water in our livewell (talking about drops of water around the drain ring) saying we could get fined $800 if we leave the access like that, yet what do the inspectors say to the wake boat that pumped in 1000 gallons of water into it and most certainly cannot dispel all the water and an inspector cannot see!!  Not sure what it is about this particular access but I have had the worst experiences there and do not have similar experiences elsewhere, so I just had to ask if other see this too.
