On the Road with Steve and Ken, March Sax/Zim Bog

Recommended Posts

Been awhile since Steve and I have been out. Spent a day in the Bog looking for GGO's. For as many as were around yesterday, we saw only one and he crossed the road so fast we couldn't get a shot. Took our frustrations out on whatever else we could find:




Boreal Bad Hair Day:



Sorry, I like boreals:


Shot this guy so many times I think we may have cooked him:



Shot a whole 'nuther card but don't have the gas to edit them tonight.

Some super shots today, Ken and Steve! Hard to pick just one favorite and I have to agree with Ken that you can never get enough of those darn Boreal Chickadees. Steve I really like the aspect on the NHO looking down at you. It must be a treat with that 600mm and it looks like it has done a beautiful job.

Those are some really sharp shots.

I'm getting lens envy laugh

That owl sure wasn't camera shy.

Very nice work.

Great shots guys. Now I know how you REALLY get the great bird shots...you have them trained. All are very sharp with good composition (IMHO).

Great mix gentlemen.

I'm really drawn to the spruce perch/boreal chickadee images, some wonderful poses/personality.

I just don't know about the background control on the last two images....

Well, we went to the Bog again today. Who knew? wink

Same subjects, different day. Except after two days the DagNabitt Road owls only showed themselves with fleeting flights at last light. Ah well, it's not like we don't have gazillions of GGO images. frown

See now, I found those to be pretty studly backgrounds. Just goes to show ya how tastes vary. Am I sensing ambivalence? gringringrin

    • I did put some runner rugs down the center 😁
    • This team is not going anywhere with  Tom Thibodeau as there coach.  
    • Have to agree great game looked real good definitely more aggressive time will tell.
    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us.
