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!

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.

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.

      Just as a note, I got on the chain Saturday around noon.  Main lakes had a skim of ice, 1/2", shallow bodies(East lake) look like the ice was actually walkable, please don't take my word for that though.     Anyways, water temps were 34*.  I didn't fish much at all, just broke up enough ice to get some new data for mapping.  I did mark quiet a few fish, which is a plus.     On another note, has anyone else noticed the large group(15-20) of beds on Horseshoe just north of the meth hole, about 8-9FOW?  I noticed these this spring, and they're still there.  Thought it was kind of interesting they'd still be there even after all the boat traffic this year.

      Sounds like a fantastic fall!!

      Smith Farms Labradors?  My 8 year old British yellow lab is from that breeder in Grove City.

      In New Mexico? Not much. In Minnesota? A little more. Wheel boat, I assume for a 50 HP on a 15' boat. Bench seats? Does the outboard run? What's wrong with the lower unit? Does the steering work? Does the throttle work? Is there a trailer?

      Went out to check some ice on one of my lakes that seems to freeze over before most. 2-3". Still early but maybe another week and ice fishing has begun for me. We'll see. Anyone else getting excited. Now only if cold weather would hurry up and come!

      Thanks I know fishing, graduated with my brother, I graduated with his sister Patty. I miss chasing roosters.

      My older yellow Zoe came out of Pete Fischers Rex former owner of Fischer Kennels now with Dogtra and my newest black one Otter is from Mike Feldhege of Richmond AKA (Fishing) his male Drake and a cousins female Avery from a Grove city kennel. Both excellent dogs! both were fairly reasonable I train all my dogs myself done a few already takes a ton of time and paitence  but the rewards are worth it! My dogs are in the house with me and spend time with me in the boat and pretty much are with me all the time they are my second kids 😀  I feel this connection is what truely makes a good dog.  
    • smurfy
      Been good so far 👍 I will take you up on your offer some time.   Where did you get your young lab?? I may be in the market for one this spring as long as I don't need to take a second mortgage on the house.🥴
    • IceHawk
      Thanks Glen been busy fishing and hunting been a banner year for me in the outdoors for sure !!!  Had a phenomenal summer, fall walleye fishing, got a Buck and Doe gun season now my focus is chasing roosters as much as possible until good ice! Might be my last year in the field for my old lab as she is 13 still hunting hard but the joints arthritis are catching up to her. Plus side is my new pup 1 1/2 is really coming along great she's going to b a good one! Your more than welcome to follow me but I will warn you first you have to figure out what I'm driving. Bought a new 2020 pickup this spring with a off road  package now  you have to figure out the color and brand 😀🤣 Seriously anytime your more than welcome to join me just holler Hope retirement is treating you right.
