Statewide L.E.T.S--Dinner question

Recommended Posts

Heya guys,
Paul and I will be on vacation till the the morning of Pokegama. Paul is trying his hardest to figure out how he is going to get the meal together, so I thought I might throw this out there. How does everyone feel about using the meal allowance to order pizza Saturday night? I'm not even sure if Paul will go for it, but it may let him rest his little head.
See ya on Pokagama,

I don't have a problem with that. smile.gif

I know Paul rushed back from vacation last year and sent the meals up with Cory. That was hectic....

Here's a thought going with what sheepshead said-

Why don't we just make reservations somewhere in GR and use the allowance to pay for part of it? We could do the pizza thing, I think there is one on 169, can't remember the name of it but it's on the Right hand side heading North. If I remember right they have pretty good zaa there. It would be the easiest and then we wont have to worry about the food or clean-up...LOL.

If we did this, we should call ahead and let them know we are comming. Everyone could kick in another $5 each and that should cover it I would think.

Any other ideas?

Tom is going to try to set something up with Sammy's. My buddy that did it last year will be up with me in Canada. That makes it practically impossible for me to do something for this event. I appreciate all of you understanding. Not too mention maybe I will get to do a little socializing. grin.gif

Even though I am not fishing with all @ Pokegama (had the Anoka Metro going that weekend)...

Two suggestions for GR pizza:
Sammies Pizza (in town after Cub by Kmart) Right (while heading north) / East side of 169.

Beno's on 2 East of town...

Both have great pizza and oh yea BEER!!

    • Nice!  Congrats to you guys!
    • Well Day 2 was a complete bust. Warm temps and high winds along with a full moon kept any daytime movement to a minimum at best. Onto the next.   Day 3 we got plenty of rest the night before and we’re ready to hit hard. We started off on the bluff where Cole had got his cow and before we could even sit down we had 3 cows at 600 yards heading at us. We lost sight around 500 and figured they would move right up the draw around 200 yards away. They didn’t follow our plan and disappeared forever. Around 10am we had some animals above us. We could hear hooves on the bluffs but never saw them. We had lunch around noon and then started still hunt ridge to ridge. Around 130pm we were on a sharp drop of when son says ELK! We immediately hit the ground as they were only 100 yards almost straight below us on steep bluff. We belly crawled to the edge and looked into the timber. We could then only see one standing looking straight away from into the wind. I slide my rifle up in front of me and placed the cross hairs behind the shoulder. My first opportunity at a Bull ever. Cole had him in the binos when I pulled the trigger. Not needed. He dropped right in his tracks. Cole tackled me and both erupted in laughter. Both of us total rookies had filled our elk tags 3 days into the season. Not sure if we are good or just plain lucky but either way it’s been an unbelievable experience.  Now we had some serious work ahead of us.  We literally had to pack him out an almost straight up vertical cliff. I have one really bad knee...all those years of jumping out of airplanes in the military have taken a toll on my knees. We each grab a rear quarter and made the first trek out. When we got back I was hurting. Cole said sit down Dad. I got this!! He then hauled out both fronts and loins in one haul. Went back down for the head and did that too. As I sat and watched him I was overcome with emotion. How did I get so lucky in raising such a grateful and helpful young man!  He got back up to me and we both broke down in tears and hugged for about 15 mins. What an experience we’ve had. The effort and hard work you go through on these hunts is like nothing else. It’s been the best we could of asked for and then some. We took the morning off while my buddy went back out. We did some scouting this afternoon and think we found a herd for tomorrow to go after with him along with trying to fill our deer tags. More to come
    • Looks great. Whats with the tray of rabbit food there? 😅
    • Gold finches are still hanging on. All juveniles though. Actually had a red winged blackbird at my feeder yesterday. 
    • So, I guess the show has a new director, and she wasn’t a big fan of how the show would drag certain things on. That’s why she hung Gregory in the first episode. Apparently she’s the reason Rick will only have 2 more episodes left. She’s not even going to drag out his demise. I like it!
    • Last batch of the season. I picked the rest of the unripe jalapenos for poppers. It sure was a great year for the garden. Just have some carrots and beets left. 
    • Oh - so that's what happens when a pike hits the camera.  Neat.  Thanks for sharing.
    • Congrats and that sure is a beaut!
