HSO/FM Winter 2010/2011 Photography GTG

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gals hopefully thanksgiving has treated you all well and everyone has full bellies now for a couple days. The last couple of weeks as the weather has been a changin' a GTG has been on my mind. Last year we had a decent turnout and it was nice to put some names with faces. I know I have read recently that at least one maybe more members here on this board will not be putting feeding stations out in the bog due in part to the problems that occurred last year. Is it a possibility we could still have an outing out there?? There obviously are many other places to met up as well. North shore state parks, around Ely is a beautiful area and you never know who may show their faces, ect. Just trying to start up a thread and see if there is interest and maybe throw out a few areas to go.

Not sure about dates as its tough around the holidays and I am finishing up my 5th and final year of college in Wisconsin so that restricts me some but if I cant the show will still go on without my presence. The best dates for me is between Christmas and New years.

I am always up for another gathering and dates aren't really a big issue with me. I am sure the bog will be just as good as any other year even with out some of the feeders. We may be in for a good winter finch season too. I have seen large flocks of them on my journeys.

Jeremy are you still shooting a 30D and if so do you have a battery grip? I have mine laying around along with two batteries. I'll give you a great deal on them if you want them.

Jeremy

I am up for a GTG. Might just look around the bog sometime this week. The semester is winding down and the lakes are not ready to fish.

Hey All - I just want to let all of you know that the photo GTG is a great day! As Jeremy said it was fun to put some faces to names we see here often and a great opportunity to learn from each other. I highly recommend it.

That being said, I'm not sure I can make it this year - a new grandbaby due sometime during the holidays, commitments to babysit and some travel in January, etc. (being retired is SO busy smile ).

Happy holidays to all of you - drive safely, enjoy the season!

I'd be up for one. Probably needs to happen yet in December, since my Saturdays likely will be gone baby gone once laker season starts.

Shoot one out there, Jason, and we can go from there. Saturday or Sunday Jan. 8 or 9 is workable for me at this point, but what do others have going on?

So far so good. Let's see who else might have conflicts. Come Jan. 15, I pretty much have to leave all my weekends open for lake trout.

Gosh dang! Looks like if the dates are the 8 or 9 I wont be able to make it up. I have to take a winter class to be able to graduate this spring. My time home is quite short and the only time I could make it up would be new years eve (Friday December 31) or Monday January 3. If I can't make it for the gtg, but I still want to come "up north" anyone have a little free time to go on a photo drive?

    • If things in there were actually a bargain they might’ve moved more stuff.  I’ve picked up a couple things there but not more than 5-10% of the times I’ve visited it.   The pricing coupled with the “as is” , no returns policy kept me a bit gun shy of making it a viable source of gear.
    • At least you’re settling for three strikes and you’re out!   Tough start but at least you know now and have a chance to rebound in some way.  Hopefully you can at least get that late season hunt on the “old” property.  Always tough when the permission starts fading after working and and getting to know a good property.
    • Looks like severe heartburn to me!😄
    • As stated for the above reasons....I totally agree.  I can tell you this much, I also hunt late into the season if I am not tagged out, and I loosen my sling more so my thick gloves will slide through it and I can grip my bow.  I have always shot with one, so i can't speak to shooting without one.  I get a piece of mind having it that I can relax my grip and now worry about the bow "jumping" out of my hand,
    • Antsy?  That would be an understatement.  I got out bow hunting 1 time last year due to the job I was working at the time.  That job is history and am now working a job that will allow me to hunt as much as I used to.  Last month has been pretty much a disaster.......the land that we hunt on, first when we went in to kill the areas for the food plot, the guy running the sprayer decided it would be a good idea to put Roundup on the clover plot I put in last year.  It was thick and awesome and I could tell the deer were just hammering it.  Mostly does and fawns, couple small bucks, but hey, when the does need a man, he usually shows up.  Needless to say, I was a little upset when this happened.  Almost lost it when the guy got done spraying the plot and then drove over to me and said "I killed that plot, we should plant a clover or chicory plot there".  Just shook my head and walked away.  Strike one......then about 2 weeks ago the owner of the property informed us that we would no longer be able to bow hunt on his land.  Only muzzleloader, and that's only if they are completely tagged out by then.  STRIKE TWO........so I just planted over 200 dollars worth of seed in food plots that I may never even get to hunt over.  STRIKE THREE!!!!   So now I am in scramble mode to try and find some private land to hunt or start getting out to scout public land in hopes to find a good spot.  All i can do is make the best out of it and hopefully things work out the best.  Either way.....I'm going to up a tree somewhere and totally loving the experience of sitting in the woods with mother nature, with a huge smile on my face!!!!
    • Hey all...........thinking about pulling the trigger on a new bow for the upcoming season (I know a little late in the year, but it is what it is in my world).  Right now I am shooting an Elite GT500 which is a double cam bow.  Thinking about possibly going to a single cam instead of the double but not really sure if that is the route I want to take.  Looking for opinions from folk who shoot either and what they like don't like about the bow.  Not looking for any bow bashing, just what everyone likes and why.  Thanks!
    • I did this with a friend. I actually think it was what is called back bacon not buckboard as he cut it out of the rear loin instead of the shoulder. IMHO it tastes really good. Like a ham of sorts. If it goes over well then I'll do a batch from the shoulder and I think the extra fat content will work better.   I used a bacon mix from Walton's that I ordered.
