More friends from the Bog grin The GGO was 8/10 of a mile north of Nichols Lake rd on Highway 7. The weasel was at the Arkola rd feeder.

Your pretty lucky, not many GG owls have been showing up. I like the bright blue background on it. I was down there for a very short time on Friday, but it was during the morning. I can't wait for the spring birds to start heading up this way.

Jay I went back on Saturday morning and could not find the GGO anywhere. I am going to try again this morning and will report if I am lucky enough to spot him.

Jonny I waited for Willy for about 3 hours and the little guy refused to make a appearance. The weather looks good enough that I might just give him another chance this morning grin

Nice to meet you Jim!! Your photos are great! The festival saw a lot of good stuff but missed on Great Gray Owl & Snowy Owl but the Duluth trip saw a Boreal Owl along the north shore.

    • A teleprompter really helps to not make people look stupid.
    • Team Europe had a chance last night. Leading late into the 3rd and the wheels come off. Even with a PP with under 2 minutes left to play they give up a short handed goal!? Tough one, but Canada is certainly the better team. Glad its over so we can get our players all back with the wild, but I did enjoy the tourney even though the US was terrible.
    • That would have been a fine answer.   Unfortunately instead he sat there with his mouth hanging open (figuratively) and looked like a total dolt.   This is the second time he has handled something in an interview poorly.  I guess he feels he needs the exposure but unfortunately he is not especially good at the interview thing.   At the very least he needs to practice deflecting the question.  Perhaps the "nobody especially" but "I prefer to look to American leaders of the past like (Calvin Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, William Calhoun, whoever he wants)"  He can't just sit there and and look stupid, which is what he did.    Maybe some role playing in preparation would have helped.   He can't be as ignorant and inept as he has come across in TV interviews.  
    • Del and D2E are now officially on the same side as Nancy Pelosi... http://sfist.com/2016/09/28/pelosi_chews_out_gary_johnson_voter.php
    • What? She has a Gary Johnson button in her naval?
    • This is probably the best answer, still though, Johnson is clearly the lesser of 3 evils.
    • The bottom (and top) plate(s) of your wall are stood on end.   
    • Thats a good point about setting the stand up on the side or backside of the tree.  I probably could have done that easy enough. In a pinch i suppose I could climb the same tree with my climbing stand on the backside and hide behind my empty ladder stand. I do plan to be standing when the deer walk through.  I should be able to hear them before they get into a clearing I'm hunting over so I'll be standing by time they get into visual range.  Any guesses at home many times I end up standing up for what turns out to be a squirrel? Of course all of this could be a waste of time since right now the forecasted wind conditions are completely wrong for this spot.  If the forecast holds I've got a couple back up spots I'll hit instead and will be using a ground blind or my climbing stand.
