Can we get the counter going for Wisconson? Hope everyone is having a safe and fruitful season so far!

Now I know some of you must hunt in the state across the border, anyone.anyone? My countdown has begun as I have three little ones I'm bringing to deer camp the first weekend. Grandpa has already said he'd take out the oldest to hunt on Saturday night. She has been after me to hunt for the archery season so far and I just don't have the stand to fit two of us but I am hoping that she will get out with Grandpa and have a nice evening hunt. She is 7 and won't be shooting but the interest is there and I hope she will keep it in the future. I am resignned to being the camp cook and babysitter for the first weekend but am soooo looking foreward to just being up there. The other two are 4 and 2 and aren't quite ready to sit on stand yet but are showing interest in archery target shooting. Just a matter of time I guess. I don't know what my wife is going to think when the three of us head out to deer camp in the years to come! Hopefully she'll accompany us but if not ....look out mastercard!(OUCH!) I'll be happy as a pig in slop if the kids want to get out with me though! Good hunting, let's get the Wisconson countdown on the board!

I'm with you, deer season opens on the 18th. Well, I hunt MN too, so really there is more than 1 opener. But I wouldn't mind seeing another countdown!

This will be only the second time since I started deer hunting that I will miss out on Wisc. The Colorado elk trip hit the timeoff and cash supplies too hard to go on another trip even just for the weekend. The countdown will just rub salt in the wound, but I sure agree there are lots of FM'ers that head over to cheeseville for the deer season...

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
