There are the Palisades on Seagull Lake, which just means really steep cliffs that are cool to view from the water.

The whole area has been burned over in the last 3 years or so, so the starkness of things makes for some great photos. Also with a lot of large vegetation mission you can see some things that have been hidden by trees for years and are exposed now. We found lots of little artifacts along the portages now that all the brush is gone.

Stay on the north side of seagull if you want to see forest - south side is has burned three times in ten years.

I was up there a few years back. Before the burn the area was awesome for blueberries. It should be better for berries following the burn.

Also I just got back from the Grand Marais/Gunflint Trail area. The locals say the blue berries are about 2 weeks behind normal. So you should be there just in time. Nothing like fresh blue berries.

I was at the trails end access yesterday just sight seeing and it looked beautifull and not burnt there. I can imagine that it was probly burnt in other areas of seagull though.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
