I sure wish we had wild flowers like that around here. I like the twins.

Nice work with the new tool, Dave. Sweet showy ladyslippers! And blooming early, unless you found them south a good ways. Up here in the locations I shoot, ours don't usually bloom until the end of June and into early July.

Mike, no showy ladyslippers down your way, but the small white ladyslipper, a gorgeous pure white ladyslipper, is a prairie flower and occurs in your area.

Steve, Do the pink and the showy bloom around the same time? I am heading up norht to look for the Pinks, around Danbury Wisconsin, sometime soon.

I found these about 65 miles west of the cities.

Dave, if you want pinks in northern Wisconsin the time is now. I found prime pinks a week ago up here, with many not yet prime at that time. They'll be popping off somewhat earlier down by Danbury.

For my pink locations, the first two weekends of June are typically prime. July 4th weekend is generally prime up here for showy ladyslippers.

Dave - I found 1 pink slipper the weekend of June 5. We went as far south as Gooseberry and as far north as Magnus and found just the one in Tettegouche in our campsite. Good luck on finding more. Also, I'm not able to send you an email, but I'd like to get more info on where you found this if you don't mind. I understand if you want to keep the location secret.

Debbie, I went tonight to check them and the rain took its toll. They are already starting to turn brown and they are torn up a little.

    • Retch, puke gag.   Good God, do you guys realize what you do to the more sensitive palates around here. I've watched buzzards walk right around a pile of pike to get to a good aromatic gopher. Please,  consider your Forum pals.
    •   Got it, I stand corrected.   Looks more like an AK than an AR though...

    • small lake actually. boat in 10 to 12 feet and casting to shore. i got mine on swim jig and paddle, spinner bait and jerk bait.  
    •   For $499, I'd buy it.   A Russian Gun? What, are you working for Trump now?    What do you mean "convert to 12 gauge"? I think Saigas are all shotguns, aren't they?
    •   Really, how deep?  Head scratch?    Oh, I think I'm smelling river.
    • Road Warriors!!!
    • that worked today    friend was throwing jerk bait and 4 nice eyes slammed it. funny!   
    • Cooler than normal temperatures, clouds and rain dominated the last week and slowed down the spring progression, including bird migrations and fish spawning. However, a warm-up in the next couple of weeks could change that quickly.River systems across the entire state are running very high, and while the Memorial Day weekend has traditionally been a popular paddling weekend, recreational safety specialists are cautioning that only experienced and properly outfitted paddlers should be on rivers when they are running this high. The Lower Wisconsin River set a flow rate record this week of 42,000 cubic feet per second at Muscoda and there are no sandbars available for camping. The river is running fast and deep, with some boat launches under water.Fewer anglers were out this week due to the rain and cooler weather and those that were reported mixed success. Along Green Bay one hot spot has been out of the mouth of the Pensaukee River where anglers have been catching limits of walleye. White bass anglers had a great deal of success, with some harvesting more than 20 fish from a few hours of fishing. .
