that's at least three muskie lure artists and inovators gone in less than a year. Rolf, ''Bobbie'', and now George. i dedicated one muskie release each to Rolf and ''Bobbie'' this year and i'll make sure to dedicate my first one to George next year. hopefully i can get it on an eagle tail. but if not i bet i remember George everytime i do.

Really sad. I got to meet George at the first Musky Expo I went to a few years ago. Stand up guy that always had the sport in mind in everything he did.

My prayers are with the Wahl family.

We all owe a huge and forever unrepayable debt of gratitude and thanks to Mr. Wahl for everything he did in his lifetime to build the fisheries, lures, education, and the overall muskie environment that we all take advantage of and enjoy every day.

Most of us (myself included) never met the man, but if you walked thru the Muskie Expo for example, you enjoyed the windfalls of his efforts. Pretty crazy that an entire arena is devoted to a fish for an entire weekend, eh? That was George at work....

Regards to friends and family....

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
