Nice to finally be where the fisherman are real and the [PoorWordUsage] is left at the door step. Unlike the other place. Of course some of you guys that I have fished with kept this place a secret from me. I won't mention any names Doug.

Thunderman...I remember that day, was the only ice to be found. Were you one of the ones that stayed for the night bite??? That's when it happened that day. I think cnytim was there along with a few others.

Dark Cloud...Give him a little pinch to go along with that punch. You and your dad live way to close for me not to hook up with you guys at some point this winter.

Welcome aboard Kappy, I'm sort of new here myself although I know a few of the guys from years back. See you're from the Southern Tier so just make sure you represent the area as well as those two fine gentlemen do gringringrin. On second thought maybe the one fine gentleman, right AW? Sorry DC.

Mark...If I don't go Saturday I can leave my extra trap just inside the barn door. I can also leave my power auger if you want, that ice is thick up there. [PoorWordUsage] i'll even leave my little truck with both traps and the auger loaded in the back if you just want to take that. I know its hard for Dustin to get out with the new baby. Have dustin give me a call.

Pman...The only fun thing to do in the Southern Tier is fish or hunt and us boys down here learn to do that well. But I do love the Madison county lakes.

"A few years back"? - It's been a long time, I was just a wide-eyed teenager pounding perch on the north shore. grin

"Gentleman" - You must be talking about Tank because that word does not go with AW or DC. crazy

DC I remember the wide eyed teen-ager part, but according to others, not sure if it was perch you were "pounding" shocked. Yeah I was talking about Tank, figured if I didn't try to exclude you from the "two fine gentlemen" remark AW and Timmy would have been all over me.

Kappy welcome also . . .you must have a good memory if you can remember when DC had wide eyes . . .unless of course you got it mixed up when he bent over a hole. Some would say the face looks the same either way.

    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
