A Ride Down the Tomahawk Trail

13 posts in this topic

Tough time to get much for images right now. No reason to sit inside and stew about it, right? Took a ride down the Tomahawk, listened to the Twins game and got a few shots:

Biggest game I saw - a star nose shrew:

White winged crossbill:

An artsy interpretation of a crossbill:

Layers:

My buddy Dougie D. used to call this "Black Water":

And a ruffie that made it through the winter - at least so far:

That mole looks like a creature from outer space. I didn't know MN had such a species. I love your Crossbill. That's another bird I've never seen.

Nice shots Ken, the mole looks like he is about to freeze the tentacles right off his nose. I bet he is a first on the forum!

The cross bill is a killer shot too and I really like the composition of the grouse shot. Good job!

Ken I like the Layers shot. It looks like a layered cake made by mother nature. That Grouse better not sit out like for too long with all the raptors moving north.

I like the grouse especially, good job. That shrew has a face only a Mama could love. Good thing they don't have access to a mirror.

Thanks all. The grouse gives me another perspective on a type of shot. Thought I was too far away to get a significant shot, but really liked it after I saw it.

Never seen that kink of shrew before, thanks for putting it up. You called it 'game'. People call things they hunt and eat game, hum? Is a shrew burger any good? That grouse did turn out nice.

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
