I'm leaving for a bowhunting trip for elk on Thurs. Man... the seconds are ticking by soooooooo slowly! I'll do my best to take lots of pics and post a report again when I get back. Compared to last year, if we have half as many animals to take pics of this year I'll be happy! Wish me luck!!!

Where you going Scoot?

I'm doing my first trip for elk and with the bow besides this year. We're heading out to Idaho in Clearwater National Forest. Should be a fun trip, I don't have my expectations too high for this first year. An elk would be a bonus.

Thanks for the well-wishes, fellas.

Tom, definitely! I want to team up with you this year for sure!

Tip, we're readed to WY. Very generally, we'll be in the Medicine Bow National Park area. Good luck to you on your trip!

Rot, funny you should say that. My bro brought little mini bottles of Yag last year- the tiny shot sized ones you see at the checkout in offsales. We knocked 'em back when we got back to camp with racks on our packs.

DD, elk or no elk, I'll bring back pics!

    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
