WOW, the grey fox and cat are AWESOME.

I don't have any mounted yet, moving around in the bush requires everything to be mailed, they would not survive well being thrown out of small bush planes smile.gif

My neighbor trapped this coyote in 2005, so I mounted it up for a little practice. Didn't turn out too bad.

Thanks guys, I really like the grey fox too. I have to put in up, in an unfinished bedroom, because I have a 1 year old golden retreiver that thinks she should be able to play with it. I'm thinking I'm going to build a glass case for it.

Dag, you really did a nice job on the yote. Did you do the turkey too? Do you do it for a living or hobby?

Leechmann,

I had been doing taxidermy just as a hobby for the last year or so, but I just finished college so I may start bringing in some more work.

The turkey in my avatar I just finished for a buddy back home, my first time mounting a full strut turkey, and it actually turned out!

Leechman, I have a gray fox in my freezer from a month ago. Would you our your son be interested in mounting it in the same pose as the one in your picture. Let me know 320.248.8721. I am located in St Cloud.

SRF- I didn't mount that grey myself, I had a local taxidermist do it. He is one of a few people that I know that can do exceptional work. If you want his name, let me know and I'll e-mail it to you. This guy is pretty busy, so it will take about 14 months to get your mount back. It's worth it though. Let me know.

      Hi, I am writing on here to try to find the owner of some fishing gear that was left on East Rush Lake. I found it last Sunday morning and would like to get the gear back to the owner. If you can describe what you lost I'm willing to meet up and return your stuff back to you. I know how much it sucks losing your gear and starting over. Call me if you think it might be your gear.  Travis 651-315-9913

      Best to contact the DNR and let them access it to see if they think it's an issue before you end up with a fine.

      No, I went out the north access that you can't launch a boat on. 237th and Granda off of North Shore Trail. Very north end of Lake 1.

      Just a heads up that you cannot trap beavers on an WMA without a permit from the wildlife manager.

      The cost is for sure starting to get up there.  I've been wanting to take the kids but I just can't justify the cost for a weekend of fishing.  All of ice fishing trips end up being guys trips where we all split the costs, then it doesn't end up being that bad.  I'm guessing the bulk of the groups that outfitters service are groups of guys splitting the costs and that is partly what drives their pricing.  If they were pricing the houses and services with families of 4 in mind they likely wouldn't be able to charge nearly as much.    I can't fault the resorts as they are pricing based on what the majority of their clientele are.  Very few resorts are out there getting rich regardless.  I do however think hundreds of dollars a night for a single room shack with plywood bunk beds is a bit crazy when you really think about it. I pay less per night when staying in high end hotels in down town Minneapolis.

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.

      Still waiting for the fire marshal to determine cause. They are working on a plan but can’t knock it down until the fire marshal lets them
