Any birds around the Aitkin area?

2 posts in this topic

This is my first post on this HSOforum. Opener was better than usual my brother and I got seventeen ten on Saturday and seven on Sunday. The rest of our camp totaled around 20 between three other groups. Our bag consisted of a mix of GWT, Ringers, mallards, BWT and woodies. Once again had to watch parties shooting at ducks way out of range(up to 150 yards), shoot early, and not chase their cripples. It would be great if everyone was ethical hunters. Anyways since openers there haven’t been many birds around only averaging a couple per morning. Just wondering if anyone knows of anything in the area. Let me know if you do. I don’t think much will happen till we get some weather up north. Good luck and remember shoot em in the face.

We had a good opener up there too getting bwt, gwt, woodies, ringers, mallards and a bonus lesser bluebill. I was up there on Wednesday morning and there were a few ringers around and I did see a couple of buffleheads and some geese. My guess is that starting in a week or too some northern birds will start moving in but it is gonna take some more cold fronts to get it started.

    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend....or yers?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
