  1. Got my small hard side shack out today, good to be back out there!
  2. I did use it some earlier in the year. This year I purchased a kyak style paddle,much better. I rolled the canoe last summer due to my own mistake. Always need a life vest on, scared the dump out of me. I want to duck hunt more this year/ fall so it should work well. Overall very happy with it!
  3. Anyone thinking about fall bearing hunting? Collecting bait? Popping pop corn? I am doing both of these, something to make time go by.
  4. I have had a couple of good weeks of panfishing. The sunfish and a few crappies have been biting pretty good. I have been using a hair jig with a small plastic bait. I am really impressed with the amount of fish a person can get on one plastic grub! As always most of the fish were released with a few smaller ones for a couple of meals.
  5. Was over in east central Wisconsin today scouting, the ticks were horrible! Looking forward to hunting next week.
  6. Harvested 10 fiddleheads and 1 ramp today, gonna be good eating tonight!
  7. That's alot! I didn't have that many in my patches but yes, last year there were alot.
  8. I think a person has to be careful of over harvest as the ramps / leeks are slow growing. I try to selectively harvest.
  9. I had always wondered if you could transplant ramps? Maybe 3 years ago I transplanted 6 or 7 plants to the edge of my yard. Turns out you can, I checked on them today and I have 7 healthy plants! I also moved another 4 plants to the same area from another patch. First 2 pics are of plants 3 years and last one is a pic I transplanted today.
  10. Love seeing every one's harvest pictures online. Stay warm and safe.
  11. Good luck to everyone heading out tomorrow and for the rest of the seasons! I am hunting B season in Mn and D season in Wisconsin.
  12. First ramps of the year for me. I think this is the earliest I have ever found them.
  13. Looking forward to finding some new patches of ramps and fiddleheads this year. Looking back at past pictures, looks like another month + here in mn to new ones.
  14. Fat guy and pizza go hand in hand. I think it would be a fun trip.
  15. I have been thinking of making a trip to north east Iowa to try some stream fishing for trout, any tips or advice?
  16. I tried it when it first came out, may need to give it a try again.
  17. The good the bad and the ugly?
  18. I got drawn for D season, zone 4. How did you do?
  19. I was out for 3 hours this morning. I speared an eater and missed one. I also got a small one on the tip up. The pic is of a 30 inch fish I got last week.
  20. If nonresident, the first 2 seasons can be tough to draw. The closest I have drawn was the C season.
  21. I hunted Idaho this past fall for deer and elk. We seen a fair number of turkeys. I plan to go out a little early for the hunt next year. I was thinking I could add a turkey hunt to the fun. Does anyone have any experience hunting turkey in the fall in Idaho? I would be deer / elk unit 6. Thanks minky
  22. I didn't get an animal or even a shot but I learned so much! The importance of quality optics and hunting outerwear. The better shape a person is in, the more enjoyable and successful the hunt. I got to meet new people and hunting partners. Quality people only add to the experience! Learning a new game animal and way to hunt is so satisfying yet frustrating at the same time. In short, a trip of a lifetime for me but with the promise of a repeat next year.
  23. I recently spent about a week and half in the panhandle mountain area of Idaho. We were a mixed group of elk and deer hunters. What an awesome hunt in a great area. This was my first hunt for elk with an experienced elk hunter (childhood buddy). I learned so much. One bull was harvested on opening day. On day 5 we got into a bunch of elk with one being a herd bull, no shot. Next day was cow season so we backed out. Early the next morning we were back in the area. Fresh elk beds and urine puddles showed we were right behind the elk. Fresh tracks showed they were walking ahead of us but not running. I pulled off to let my buddy and his wife continue on. About a half an hour later a pair of moose hunters in a side by side pasted me on the logging road head towards my buddy. The elk heard the side by side and bugged out. The next morning we were going to try again but there was a truck at the trail head. The last morning of cow season a very large group of people were camped blocking the trail head, the joys of public land! We continued hunting and exploring new areas. We ended up with 1 elk and 6 deer before half of the group headed home. The other half are still out there trying to fill tags. I am already planning next years hunt. I learned so much and seen / explored new area. I only had an elk tag but hope to have both elk and deer tags in my pocket next year. I will also be better prepared next season. I am looking forward to next years two weeks of mountain therapy.

    Fall bird

    I was lucky last week to harvest a nice, young hen turkey in Wisconsin fall season. Happy to add the meat to the freezer.
