  1. I wouldn't call that a great shot..... In fact I would say that is a terrible angle to try and kill an animal. It was cool to see, but he was lucky with the outcome.
  2. Two pound Suffix Elite or Trilene XL for me (clear for both). Don't waste your time or money on overpriced tiny spools of "ice" line.
  3. I used to be a big fan of them, still use a few....but their drags suck. A $29 Shimano Sienna has a superior drag compared to the top of the line Cetus.
  4. Also worth mentioning, CASH IS KING Some vendors will knock off another 5% or better if you ask about paying with cash vs. paying card fees. I've spent a lot of dam money at that show over the years...... It's almost an evil event LOL
  5. Usually no "screaming" deals, but 20-30% off retail is pretty common. Possibly a little more if you haggle and price shop different booths, especially on the last day. If that is the only thing you are going for, you will likely lose money when figuring in gas, parking and admission. But if you've never been to the show, it is worth checking out and spending half a day there
  6. What the heck is a Star Tribune? Some archaic form of communication inked onto flattened tree pulp?
  7. Hey MJ, am I going crazy or did I have a post here from Friday that was deleted?
  8. To be honest, I'm unsure of the legal obligations of tagging with a kill tag in these situations. But for me, morally there was zero doubt whether to tag him or not. I had taken a great deer's life and recovered him in a reasonably prudent amount of time. I tagged him and registered him online. Now if a guy shot a buck on September 15th and recovered the skull on November 15th, that to me would be entirely a personal choice whether to continue hunting or not. Legally, one may very well have to go through a game warden to take the skull without validating a kill tag?
  9. The Final ChapterThis morning was bitter sweet in a couple ways.The first was the alarm clock didn't go off at 4 a.m. Which was nice, but it also meant I wasn't in a treestand today.At day break, I again loaded up Gunner and headed to Wisconsin. One quick pit stop for breakfast and we soon arrived.Once at the parking area, I leashed him up and off we went.Instead of cutting cross country up and down the terrain to get to the last beds, I decided it would be easier to take the longer route along a trail to get there with less effort. Running around on just a few hours sleep has a guy looking fo
  10. My buddy I was with pointed those aborted entolomas out to me. I've never had them. Where he is from they call ' em Pig Snouts. He said they are great battered up and deep fried.
  11. Both have their positives and negatives. I have carpet and like most things about it, but my next shack will have a rubber/vinyl floor with carpet runners/area rugs. Then you get the best of both worlds
  12. I fish quite a bit, but never enough..... Over fifty hours on the Verado this year, with lots of open water left. Never troll with it, the kicker takes care of that. No evening "cruises" around a lake either. Point A to point B. But I will admit It has idled part of that time because it is quieter than the pro kicker and I forgot to shut It off... The longest single run so far was 22 miles one way across Lake Superior to Isle Royale.
  13. A buddy of mine saw some pictures of my hens last fall and couldn't believe it was possible. He has hunted mushrooms his whole life and has looked for hens over the last ten+ years. During that time he had only found two baby hens in his area (eastern Wisconsin). I gave him a holler Monday and we set up a mushroom hunt for this Friday. Fortunately the mushroom God's didn't let us down, and we had an absolute blast!!
  14. Gotta love them lobsters, nice haul! I think they are the neatest mushroom in the woods. Nothing else really like them. This is the first year I have found them, and I only have "one spot", but it has produced pretty consistently..... Gotta gets me some more spots LOL
  15. Don't give up on Chanterelles just yet, just look for different varieties Right now a delicious pint sized cousin of the beloved golden chanterelles are popping. They take a little more time to get a collection due to their size, but they are just as tasty and add brilliant accent and color to many dishes. I picked 3 gallons worth as well as a couple hens today.
  16. Looks like a stinkhorn. Once the slime falls off they kinda look like a morel. A few of them got me excited a couple years ago until I got a closer look...
  17. Very nice guys. Those chants are huge! I snuck out on Friday for a bit and found a nice batch too. Looked and looked for hens, but didn't see a single one... Found chants, chickens, hedgehogs, and lobsters
  18. ColdTrack on here does butchering as well. He's over in Squaw Lake.
  19. With the Hen Of The Woods season fast approaching, I was wondering how you all get these hogs out of the woods? It is again mid-August, and my grass is as green as in June. Normally by now it is just crusty brown remnants of spring gone by (because of sandy soil and I never water it) For me, this is again indicating another fantastic fall ahead for the dancing mushroom When you find the motherload, do any of have any tricks for getting more than an armful out at a time? I just picked up a small frame pack that I am hoping will be a little gentler than my standard back pack. I am also t
  20. I found a patch of them this weekend too, the vase shape of the older ones got me excited from a distance. But the color and gills kept them right where they were. Just take a big'ol chomp and post back tomorrow if you are still alive J/K
