I too have been absent for awhile. Haven't had the camera out in weeks. Got that insulative foam sprayed on our foundation.Planted over 200 trees and some Nankang cherry and gray dogwood bushes. Sat. we poured a new 14'x40' patio and another pad under the hydrant by the barn. Just got done powerwashing the barn so I can paint it tomorrow or weds. Still have to steel part of the barn roof,move 20 ton of rock around the patio,install vinyl siding on 1 building,hopefully that will round out my 1st week of vacation!

I can't wait to get back to my regular job so I can get some rest! shocked

I'm still concerned about our friend Marc with the 400 2.8

Hope he's ok.

People come. People go.

But geez, I hope Marc didn't sink into the quicksand at a local wetland weighed down by that 400 f2.8!

MM, looks like you need a very definite break. Summer is supposed to mean relaxation, not vexation! gringrin

What, What is Summer and relaxation. I have been coming and going more in the last few weeks than I have all year. By the end of 4th of July I will have been to all areas of 2 states since April One.

Duluth, to the NE, Lac QUi Parle to the SW, MInneapolis to the SE, Drayton in the NW. As for North Dakota, Williston, Medora, Cavalier, langdon, Glenfield, Carrington, Lakota, Devils Lake, Hankinson, all for work in the last 3 months. I do have some niftey photos to show for it.

heck I am even going to Brainerd on Wensday for work.

I was wondering about Mountain Dew myself as I was posting the Golden Eagle Pics, I was thinking about those great Baldie Shots he had been sharing.

    • Yah - great looking decoys! MJ - I'm just letting you know I'm breaking into your house and stealing your spear rack.  And mount. I found a rickety old 5 tine when I cleaned out the garage.  I might give it a try this season.
    • I can't identify any of those for sure, and certainly wouldn't recommend eating any of them.  The first pic might be some older honey mushrooms, but it's pretty tough to tell.  I've got about 8 mushrooms that I can positively id.  Beyond that, it's just not worth being wrong.  There are still some fresh hen of the woods mushrooms around the metro if you get out into some oak woods.  You can find them around the base of big mature oaks and they are pretty easy to identify.  Found about 20 on Wednesday.  Many were a little old, but was able to take 4 nice ones home.  Here's a pic of one that I left behind.
    • I'm putting it on my calendar.  Don't forget the Nord Lord trophy since it has a new home to go to. 
    • Detroit News breaks 143 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson.   The endorsement is the first time in the paper’s 143-year history it has endorsed someone other than the Republican Party’s nominee. http://www.breitbart.com/news/detroit-news-breaks-tradition-endorses-libertarian-gary-johnson/  
    • Kind of like Trump did Monday night.
    • Gets on a bunch of talk shows. Jumps another 5 points in the polls.. This just ain't working the way it's supposed to...
    • Looks like it's unanimous then. Good thing my vote goes to Hillary since it seems everyone thinks she is the best person for the job.
    • In your situation I'd try to be standing around the time you expect the deer to show up since it sounds like your upper body will have branch cover but not lose drawing ability. I usually set up off to the side and a little behind the tree from the direction I expect the deer to come from.  That way I get the full benefit of the cover of the tree I'm in. I stand a lot though; I rarely sit.  My ears tell me quite a bit but I'm usually looking around that tree all the time and my body is close to it.  I seem to be able to get away with quite a bit of movement and am rarely at 15 feet or higher.
