I'm getting really excited for the ruffies this year. My pup injured himself early in the season last year so that sidelined us. Can't wait for the first walk in the woods!

Went out to chase some doves and crows. No crows but got 3 doves. It was good training for Finn before duck season.

the doves have been scarce, I had a chance at 2 this week, but decided they were out of range, and did not fire, that was it. looking forward to chasing grouse next weekend, I am thinking the woods will be busy with hunters on opener.

Well I talked to a few guides in the arrowhead that I know and it's not sounding good for numbers on grouse. I am going up to the cabin this weekend to mow the grass and get things ready for deer season. I will report how I do and what I see. I will also be scouting so newly logged areas for deer.

I jumped a few but only saw 3 that I could shoot at. 4 flew low and to close to the dog to shoot. The ones I shot at the pine trees to the shot. We did see 4 woodcock or heard 4 saw 2.

The birds were running off the trails and getting back in the bush quick. Finn did his job but the birds were so far back in the bush I could not see them. I went two for two yesterday but had 5 low flyers and some I heard but did not see. I sure love the north woods. PS there is a lot of moose running around I seen 4. Lots of tracks on the trails as well. Fall colors are popping so there is big numbers of people driving the back roads. I seen one accident I dodge truck flew past me and about a mile down the road a  Cadillac and the said dodge met. Please slow down on the little back roads.

Walked down the lane to check trail cams decided to bring shotgun with managed to get one dove. Should have had more but missed a couple and they others I had no shot as they disappear quick when the corn is over your head :crazy: Going to have to go back when I have more time to work the field good.  Went grouse hunting in morning but didn't flush any. We did flush 2 roosters though.

      My folks would go to St Cloud about once a month, and if we were very lucky, they would bring home a case of pop from Minars bottling. The old wooden red cases.  You could still get a cone for 5 cents at the DQ on the corner of 33rd.

      Have not heard a thing for months now on building progress- has the panic shutdown stopped the construction or are we still on schedule for a new store by July 4th ?

      Guy down the bay is nice but a bit odd. I mean he is still looken for the lefty monkey wrench we asked him for in 1996.   Few years ago he told me to come see his sign he made for a concert he was heading to.   So couple days later I was passing an he showed me the sign.   It read  "I LOVE YOU STEVIE!"   SO I ask, what concert ya going to  ~ Thinking it was  maybe Fleetwood Mack n Stevie Nicks...?   Nope he said I am Stevie Wonder guy!!!   I think of this moment a lot....Big Smiles!   T

      I usually fish mille lacs about 3-4 times a year, usually in the spring before it gets hot out there.  I do not stay there, as I live within 90 miles of the lake.  I sometimes stop for breakfast or lunch but that won't happen if I decide to go this season.  I will probably still go and make a half day out of it at some point.  I exclusively use artificial lures so I don't need to stop for bait and if I need to stop for gas I will pay at the pump.   I think there will be less people fishing it because they have encouraged people to fish "locally" (whatever this means is different to everyone).  Lodging options will definitely be more limited and bars/restaurants/resorts may not be operating as they normally would.   As for the fishing out there and the regs...can't say I agree that winter anglers are able to keep fish and soft water anglers can't keep anything AND have a month long closure, but it is what it is.  The walleye, smallmouth, pike, and muskie fishing is still fantastic and there is state record trophy caliber potential for bass and muskies right now.

      Always been googly eyed over the Judge!  Nice!  I had a Trans Am, a buddy had ‘68 Firebird with a built big block wedged in there.  Buddy’s BIL had a parade of cool cars in those days; Camaros, Road Runner, 442, and a big ‘ol Coronet 500 with a 440 he painted up real pretty.     Cone tops!    And the reel that wound the line on backward, but sweet!

      I was thinking April 20th for ice out but with the cooler night time temps next week I'm thinking April 27th now. The ice is starting to pull away from the shoreline which is a good sign.
