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.

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 got back home, checked Coon Lake, Anoka. 3" at East access off Lexington. Only 20 ft off shore lots of ice cracking. 1" at the easement access West shore 3 ft. off shore. Couple 100 ducks on open water adjacent shore. 4 guys fishing the channel one with a double Eskimo hub. They said the channel had 4". May be a challenge to get my required 6" before Christmas with December warmer NOAA forecast. New K-drill rocks.   20201204_125309.mp4

      This was from today. West End, Wakemup Narrows and Frazer still have open water.

      Welcome and what would you like your handle to be?
    • opsirc
      Try a lake in the canyon area the other day. Solid 4-5" most of the way out,  but got close to middle of the lake, chisel went thru on second hit. Looked like maybe 2",  decided to turn around and head back to shore.

      After I made the handle, I then saw yours...then I was like darn. 364 days until I can change it again so it’s not weird😂

      wednesday I drove up to backus from Elk River along 10 and saw one portable out on Crow Wing Lake and other than that most lakes appeared to have for the most part just skimmed over.  the loop home from backus i went through crosslake and then over to 169 along mille lacs and there were some small lakes frozen over but did not see a sole out on them.

      Some bonehead decided to try driving out on Lake Bemidji this week already.  Of course he went through only 100 yards from shore.
    • gimruis
      I went yesterday for about 3.5 hours and got a couple.  Shoulda had a third with some better shooting.  I raised about 40 in addition to 5 deer.  The dog made a real nice retrieve on a wounded one too.
