Thanks all. I had some fun sneaking up on these guys during each dive.

I'm very impressed. This is not an easy species to "sneak" up on. Also curious about where around the area that you were able to get so close? Great images.

Thanks Shawn. Up the shore a bit at Stoney Point. Cool spot just to hang out if nothing else. Let me know if your not sure where that is. When I first saw them they were by the area of all flat rock and they saw me right off and moved down. I got back up on the road and ran down ahead of them and watched for a bit from the trees. They would dive for an average of 10 seconds so during each dive I moved making sure I was down behind a rock by the count of ten. (good thing it was not to a count of 15, I would of had to take a boot off and expose some toes) In the area they stayed for sometime had rather large rocks and I ended up agaist a big one on the waters edge. They seemed to favor this spot you may just find them there.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
