Anyone having any luck up there? Me and a few guys are heading up thur-sun. and wanted to know how you are doing. We will be hunting the paper mill land for the most part, unless you guys have any better ideas for the area.

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.

I'll be up there this weekend looking for them!!

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
