  1. There I might have made it a little easier to read Hope we are all still around in another 10 years!!
  2. I just looked and saw that I was also a 10 year member on this site as of 12/11/2008...got me wondering if the fishingmn site was different, as I recall joining in march during a spring crappie boom on red. Sure enough I joining that site as of March 2 2005. It has been a great site to be a part of and have had great conversations, learned a lot, and have sadly seen too many members pass away. Very odd on that part when I find myself shedding a tear for people I had no connection to other than the love of the outdoors and reading and exchanging info on the interweb!

    Upper Red - What Am I Doing Wrong?

    Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake! The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away! From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear. Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing. Good Luck!!

    Muzzy 2018

    If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy. I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer. Good Luck to those that get out!!

    I think the trade sucks if they actually had the Heat's offer of Josh Richardson and a 1st round pick plus another player...even Richardson and the first round pick would be better then Saric, Covington, and a 2022 2nd! Maybe I am off on this (Saric and Covington aren't the worst return) but looking back I wish they had stuck with Lavine, Markinen, and Dunn! Oh well glad to put this behind us and start the healing process!! hope Butler brings the 76ers and their "Process" down!! Go Wolves!!
  6. well that is cool Dusty! Staying in deer camp for 10+ days sounds fun as you have plenty of times to hunt and not feel obligated to go out every morning or stay out all day! Good Luck!!
  7. Well the weekend came and went with little excitement, which for me, isn't such a bad thing! I sat in luxury this weekend and wonder if it was a reason I didn't see many deer...but then I thought back to years past and froze my butt off and saw nothing. This was way more enjoyable sitting in a box stand with windows and a heater! Heard a few shots out there so I know a few deer dropped...lets see some trophy pics!!

    Show Your Orange Motley Crew.

    Sadly I have never been apart of a group of no more than 3 and we never took pictures. Thinking back on the hunting buddies I spent years hunting with, I am not sure that I ever took pictures with the group. Sad thinking back on the hunting buddies and characters that have come and gone...I guess that is another part of opening morning that I love so much as I sit in the darkness thinking back on hunting pasts. I will try to start a new tradition with my new hunting spot tradition and snap a photo of the hunting party during the hunt. good luck to all and enjoy your hunting camp and group!!!

    Happy Halloween

    it was a little slower in my hood last night. We had about a 100 kids I would guess but expected more. Years past we have run out of candy but last night we ended up with 2 bags remaining and now become deer camp candy! Was a good night with good weather and a lot of happy kids!!!

    I agree that it was nice to see them come together and pull out a win without Jimmy. I really think they need to go back to Miami and tell them Josh Richardson, Whiteside, and a 1st round pick for Jimmy. Let's move on and get an asset that this team can use. With this trade listed we get a young upcoming player in Richardson, a rim protector in Whiteside, and a coveted 1st round pick that will land in the upper teens.
  12. Tis the season of a Minnesota Holiday and the opening of the firearms season for deer!! Where ya going to be sitting come sun up on Saturday? Tell us about your set up, your camp, your camp characters! Give an idea of why this time of year is special for you. For me, I am starting a new tradition (I hope), and hunting in the Crosslake area after about 10 years hunting in farm country in the Princeton area. As some may recall, last year I had a run in with a neighbor to a chunk of land that I had been hunting for 8-9 years, that resulted in the neighbor being arrested the 2nd time I had to call the authorities out to the land. Since that was not fun, and I cannot safely enjoy my time out there, I was left scrambling to find a new hunting spot. I decided I would go north to my in-laws in Crosslake. Father-in law has always got his deer up there and I figure as he gets older he will not quit hunting but should have help if needed. Also my kid is now 10, and will be joining me more in the next couple years, and Gpa will want to hunt with him too. I have some connection in the area through friends and just happened to notice that one of the acquaintances happened to just move to a former chunk of Potlatch land that looked real promising. So I asked if he minded me either joining him on his land, or parking on his land, and spreading out on the public land around his place. He said he wasn't hunting this year and that I could sit in his stand if I wanted!! So I scoped out the area and come to find that he has a nice box stand with windows and all the comforts needed for a long sit! The stand sits on a hill with valleys on either side of it. One valley comes out of a swamp and the other comes from a pinch point between a river and a lake! As much as I will miss hunting the land of agriculture and swamps I am excited to see what my future hunts bring me in the big woods of the north! Good Luck to everyone this year and most of all make it a safe one making memories!!!

    shot clock reduces to 14 on an offensive rebound has sped up play but the way the refs are calling games, at a very tight game, not letting the defenders touch a guy has created a lot of players getting into foul trouble and not being so aggressive on the D.

    does he need to? Sounds like he put a whoopin on the boys in the one practice he showed up and played in...
