Sooooo after finding the trail cam said I should have sat monday evening,when i check it on tuesday afternoon, and being total jacked up, the little consults I had with freinds, calmed my adrenaline and I decide to wait till wenday to hunt cause i could not get to stand tuesday till about 6-630. SiO I had a long sleepless night and slow draging day at work. But 5 oclock came and off to the woods i went.

I decide to play it cool, I knew there was lots of bait in the barrel, so i just snuck in, retreived the trail cam, Took a page from icehole john and spryaed some liquid smoke all around, I dont usually do that but for instances like this,i wanted him to come in earlier than the 740 range he currentl held. I got siuated into stand, viewd the pics from tuesday and thankfully I made the right choice in backing off on tuesday, cause he came in at 430, then 730 abouts. to small of a window to thread the needle, could have easily bumped him sneaking to stand........

so I climbed  into stand, and making more noise than I wanted to of course, like a boar in a china shop no less. I got settled in. I culd catch a whiff of liqud smoke from time to time. it was working its magic the wind was perfect, coming outa the south and blowing directly to the direct he was coming from. I set the go pro to record, and waited. sent  off a few pics to arch and scoot, who told me to quit f-n  around and kill it, while arch decide to keep me distracted fro the task at hand, which i caught onto right away.LOL! 

then It happend, here he comes! Thump thump thump my heart was racing, he stoped be hind some thick brush allowing me to stand, he took a few more step clear, broadside, I was about to draw but he turned and looked my way, He then turned and headed to the barrel, which allowed me to draw, he sat downkinda half way, reached for the barrel,THUP, TWACK!

bOY WAS THE HEART IN OVER DRIVE!! I knew I couldnt go after him right away, so i made a few texts and got down and quietly left the area, for reinforcements. i picked up a freind in town, gatherd a few things, and headed back. About and half later from an easy tracking job from a Rage 2 blade chisle tip, we found him piled up about fifty yards from stand. OH MAN!! i WAS JACKED FREEKING UP. iVE SHOT ALOT OF BEARS, but this one is pretty special. Turns out its not a he but she! and she tipped the scales at a solid dressed weight of 300 pounds! big sow. In special I mean she is my second Bow Kill. I cut my teeth on my first bear 15 years ago with a Bow. I havent killed anything since till last night. Only 2 bow kills to my belt and both were Bear!  What awsome start to the season!!

    • By only hot bathing them for 10 minutes max it seems to work! I've heard of the above methods but never did them.
    •   I took the blades back off then buffed them clean with a dremel, oiled them, and touched them up with a lazer hand sharpener.  Not sure if a guy can exchange since they aren't flat.   Added some pics so you can see the curve in them. I think they must be a "jet" blade.  
    • Can't wait to see.....  
    • Grape leaves are said to also help.  
    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
