What's for Breakfast

11 posts in this topic

Mama came looking for breakfast at the edge of our campsite in Zippel Bay Saturday morning after she destroyed our cooler the day before.

Oh dear! I was finally going to break out the tent this week. After crossing paths with a bear in the dark in Glacier as a kid, I am really nervous about the little guys. And my 15 pound fuzz ball isn't going to help, is she? Maybe I'll start out down here on the prairie. Nice photo, though! Something about how the black items around the fire and his black fur play off that lush green.

Holy cow! Great capture! I think my wife would make me pack up the car after that.

We heard her snorting and stomping right after breakfast and were quite surprised when she poked her head out at the edge of camp. She was about 20'-24' away. Hubby was making the loud noises to try and scare her off and I knew not to panic. It's all part of the camping adventure.

Very interesting to say the least, bears are always to given the utmost respect aren't they!

By the way, how long have you been cooking with those "Dutch Ovens"? They are absolutely amazing and there's nothing that can't cooked cooked in them! I have enjoyed countless meals via the "Dutchie" as years ago I used to run wildness camps deep in the back country. Man how I miss those camps! cry

Stu -

We've been actively using dutch ovens for about 7 years now. ALWAYS for a German Pancake every trip and each time we camp, I try at least one new recipe. Ever try lasagna or pizza??

    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
    • We caught plenty of bass this weekend.  However most were small 12-13".  Deep fish were less than eager to bite.  Still seen a couple guarding nests yet. Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic. Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
    • We called at about 4 had them as close behind the blind but never came around for the nephew 
    • What great fun on a 4-weight fly rod!!  Those are dandy panfish.
