I've never shot there but Little Elk lake is supposed to be decent. I think there's a culvert or something on that lake that people shoot by sometimes.

If you are willing to drive, Little Elk is good. Baxter is good too. 20, 25, possible 30's in Baxter. Been a long time since I have been to Elk.

shooting from shore might be tough but one could walk along the east side of freemont and get a good vantage point to the lake and it suprisingly clear there at times and carp can be seen otherwise the north road on freemont also.....baxter without a boat would be impossible and little blue you would have the culvert that goes under the road but if they are at the culvert I would go to the Baxter/Tennison culvert as there are less lily pads and more room to work.....other than that I would say maybe work the rivers in the area such as elk,miss, or rum......there is also the cuvert by the landing at elk lake in zimm.....tough to bow fish without a boat I would imagine

I live on little elk and their a tons of carp in it please take em out and the spill way on the south side does get pressure but there are a lot of carp in the creek. I live just off the lake and I have a dock that you check out dont know how many carp would be if front of the dock but my kids alway seem to see some. email me for more info at machonellc@yahoo.com

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
