Very Cool Sight

Recommended Posts

I was fishing on Constance near Buffalo last night when a bald eagle stole a guy's sunnie. It came in real slow and just dropped down right behind him. I'm not sure if the guy even knew it happened.

There's a big nest on Big Marine. The eagles are constantly circling around looking for fish on the ice. I agree it's a very cool thing to see.

Last winter, guy next to us pulls up a hammerhandle. Takes it and starts walking out to the middle of the lake about 200 yards away. When he gets back, he looks at us and says "watch this". About that second, an eagle comes out of the trees and starts circling. Less then 3 minutes later, swoops in and grabs that pike.

One of the coolest things I have seen.

We've had them land about 20 yards away and walk to the shack to steal the perch we flipped out the door. Thought the game warden snuck up on us til we flipped the shack open and saw the eagle standing there with his talons as full as he could get them! I bet he stole 3 of our catch. We started paying closer attention after that. Another landed close, but didn't come to the shack. We threw a small one his way.

Reminds me of the way I "relocate" the suburban rabbits I catch in my live trap.

Take them down to the MS. river by my house, near an Eagles nest.

This time of year, drop the rabbits on the ice... (after rattling the cage a bit) rabbits take off across the ice to get away from me, right into the waiting talons of the eagles.

I swear the eagles know my truck now.

Summertime the same way... only the rabbits go for a swim... then just like a fish.

I lost count... I think its up to 33 rabbits in the last 2 years.

    • 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.
