I guess I'll need to fire up my black helicopter and fly up to greenbush to kidnap more cougars and drop them in the vicinity of that fan to kill it once and for all. grin

While I'm at it, I'll tip the rotors to blow more snow down that way.

I got out Tuesday night after I put the little one to bed, ripped it right down the street to the Invergrove Hieghts trails. Put on 20 miles, the new Guns and Roses album blasting on my ipod, sled started and ran good, that's just good clean fun right there.

The process for me is the same every year, I stare at my sled in storage all summer and think "I should just sell it, I don't ride it that much, it's an expensive hobby...etc etc" then the first time I get it out and hit that throtle I think "ohhhh...right, that's why I got into snowmobiling, I'm never selling this thing!"

I got out yesturday on the lake. I had been waiting to get to the area with the big slabs, and it was fun. Forgot to use the airtight minnow bucket though--a little damp in the trap. Best of both worlds, sledding and fishing.

My buddy and I spent yesterday pulling out sleds from storage. We did the once over and then headed for the nearest east/west ditch. WOW! I forgot how much fun it is to plow through the fluffy fresh stuff!! cool

    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
