Kicked around for a couple hours this noon with Ken and all we could come up with was a gaggle of chickadees. Came back out this afternoon and it was a gray jay, and that was all.

Not much to show for an afternoon in the woods but, well, and afternoon in the woods, which is always a good thing. gringrin

A gaggle of chickadees was worth a million against a plethora of responsibilities at work! It WAS good to get out in the woods, if only for a little while.

You know winter is coming when you starting posting chickadee shots again. grin But then, I never get tired of them cute little rascals.

Actually, it's snowing 30 miles NW of here, as I speak. mad

BTW, Ken, that new grouse trail is about a mile and a half long and does end up coming back out onto the road where we saw the second gate. At one point there is what looks like a spur trail turning off of it, but I didn't take the spur to see where it dead-ended because of approaching sunset.

Total length of the loop, including return by road to the first gate, felt like about 2 to 2.5 miles. Lots of good stuff in there for grouse and deer, and I met two separate bowhunters who'd just got out of VCC classes and were looking for some fresh venison.

    • 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!!!!!!!!!
