They are very nice, indeed! Try to get the prime sites if you can that overlook the lake (Cutfoot) and have beach access as well. If you look up the U.S. Forest Service site, I think you can look over the campgrounds and choose the site you want. You are correct that it is nice to stay out of the wind on the big lake. Only a real strong south wind can ruin these sites for having the boat on shore, but compared to the size of waves on the big lake, you should be in good shape.

We made our first campig reservations for the year in late December for Gull Lake in June. Can't wait to get back into the boat. If you ever get a chance to fish Cut Foot in late Sept or early Oct you would not believe the colors. We did this a few years ago. What the fishing lacked that day the colors made up for it.

Anyone know how fast East Seelye Bay fills up? I used to spend a week there every year when I was younger but I haven't been there in over 10 years. They used to fill up pretty quick back then. I'm looking to get back up there again this year. Is it hard to find a site for the weekend there or at Deer Lake arriving on a Thursday night?

    •     thanks pikestabber!!!  that will work!!!!
    • One of the young fellas in the extended family thinks he needs to buy a Bushmaster 5.5 rifle for general use and because he is now living in what he calls a "nervous tension" part of the Twin Cities.  Franky, it is all "nervous tension" to me but never mind,  what do those of you who actually own and shoot Bushmaster rifles,   about which I know nothing, think of them for quality, price and dependability. Personally, I'd rather have a Beretta 92FS or a nice little Ruger LC9mm and a REAL rifle is a bolt action, blued metal work of art with a birds-eye maple or burled walnut stock!
    • Cool pics, good job.
    • Wisconsin was a bust.   There were plenty of birds around, but they clearly are well educated when it comes to hunters.  Most hens were going to nests early, but nothing would respond to or come to calls of any kind.  I watched many birds that I would call to in a field turn and walk away, even jakes and gobblers with no hens.  Some birds would sprint out of sight!    I did come very close to a nice gobbler but forgot my range finder in my blind and didn't shoot when I thought he was a bit too far.  Ranging the area later proved otherwise...  I also had another group with a nice gobbler and a few hens that I had been chasing multiple times, they started going away from my calling, so I crawled up behind some thick pine trees to get close for an ambush shot.  Of course a hen busted me at 15yd and they disappeared...     After two solid days of rain, and this morning's rain with zero birds heard or seen I packed up and went home.  My brother called to tell me he shot a bird in the spot he told me I should go to...    All in all I only heard two gobblers actually gobble in three hard days of hunting, neither would come to me.  Many more seen.  I only heard one hen yelp back to me, again saw many others that would not make a peep...
    • So as far as anyway knows there should be no adverse effects except for extra work in the fall.
    • At my age Eyeguy I'm just trying not to lose too many.
    •   Sorry. Cell service down there was horrible. Had to wait till I got back to a real computer.
    • Kept me waiting long enough  congratulations Don
    • another good trick for good maters is once the tomatoes start forming is to put a tablespoon of epsom salt by the stalk about every 3rd-4th watering!!!!!!!! i'm a believer!!!!!!!
