Uncle saw some fox the other day said that they were about half grown. Been thinking of trying a set, getting an itchy finger.

I had two adult coyotes come within less than 75 yards when I was turkey hunting a two weeks ago. I was hoping they would got closer, they must of smelt me or didn't like the blind.

Thats happened a couple of times when I have been trukey hunting.

I keep hearing them on the river, but I suppose everyone does when they are hollering at the moon.

Had one run right in front of me south of Montgomery on 13...I should have sped up, but I had the wife's car so maybe I did the right thing smile

You might be hearing the pups right now, they cant keep their mouths shut this time of the year! I went scouting on Sunday morning, and found an adult pair and a juvenille coyote along with 4 little fur balls playing around the den. The pups were barking and howling all morning.

Man I feel for ya, your in a tough situation. If I were you I would put up my better ones and send them to NAFTA or FHA, then sell your average ones to a local fur buyer.

I got rid of everything I had last season, mostly to a local fur buyer, I took a butt kicking, but on the upside I am not holding any fur over. The fur market is looking no better for the up coming season

I went threw the work of putting up the 75 from this spring. Sent them to NAFA for the upcoming sale, hope things turn around alittle. Got good at it by the end. The 8.5 pounds of castor is what will make the money.

Did anywhere from 3-5 a day depending on my rotation of boards. I am just getting into putting my own fur up. Started with six, but that was to slow so i got enough boards for 15. I work for our city and am on call so I had the time, takes about 30-40 min to flesh and board them. Also did a few late coons and a couple coyotes, two otter and some rats. Hope to put up everything next year. Takes time, but nice to look at them all hanging around.

Those are some pretty yotes Lee, and that is a nuice pile of castor, I mean beaver you have there. I am going to start pulling the beaver out here in the next few weeks to put them up. Never done it before, but I bought a shefeild knife 2 years ago for that purpose, it is kind of an expensive wall decoration, so I think it is time to learn how to use it.

    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
