was going to the store with my son around 430 this afternoon....i live in a rural area.....we take the dirt roads to the store.i was passing one road and saw some life...backed up and went down the road and drove up on four bobcats...i thought they were maybe lynx...but after i got home...looked at a website and they looked like bobcats...one was white...heard of that before....we drove right up to one of them and i even opened the door before that one moved....i have never seen more than one before...thought they where solitary...and the websites about them said that as well....it sure was something to see....ecspecially with my son...after the store we went back to look at the tracks....very large paws...i guess i have never felt so excited to see an animal in the wild like that...it was a real treat......

That's awesome Gary! What a sight!

Was your son as excited as you?

Your boy is six now? He's must be getting big! I think I saw him last when he was three or four. Enjoy your time with him!

WOW, that must have been exciting to see. I have some land just north of you and all we ever see and hear are coyotes. It's fun to see the younger kids start skirming around the campfire when they start howling. Wait 'til I start telling them the story of the pack of bobcats roaming the area, nobody will make a mad dash to the outhouse in the middle of the night anymore.

It's very possible these were Lynx kittens especially with large paws and acting the way they did. My boss is a biologist who has been involved with Lynx trapping. He was going to go out and check it out. Stay tuned for the results. smile.gif

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
