Have not made it up that far this year since all have my outings have been day trips. Last year did well south of Rapids and in past years have done well North of Nashwauk in the George Washington S.F. So many spots up there you guys should find birds. In my few times out I have been keying on low spots near water. It is so dry where i've been hunting most of my bird action has been coming near wet areas. Such a difference from last year when I couln't find a dry spot...Good luck guys give us a report.

The Grouse Society held their annual National Grouse hunt two weekends ago in the GR area. A fried was guiding and he said the grouse number are good. On the first day he and his party of two flushed 16 birds. Not bad. You should do quite well now that the leaves are down.

Be safe and good hunting!

My buddy and I hunted around Marcell on Saturday and saw 11

and got 3. No dogs this time. Saw at least one on every

OHV trail under .5 miles long. Lots of nice trails up there

and few people hunting. My normal range is Longville and lots

of hunters. Good luck

Was ATVing in the Remer area this weekend and saw a few grouse on the trail. I almost ran 1 of them over.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
