#19 hits the snow hard!

Recommended Posts

On the way to the first set I found a springer hit on the road that had been dead a couple hours, I called the number on the caller and found the owner in Chicago for work but his wife was home so I ran the dog over and placed it out of site until he could return and take care of it.

The first set I had one come running in while I had the moon at my back and honestly never saw him until he was right on top of me. I was scanning with the binoculars and all of a sudden he was 40 yards away, saw me grab the gun and wouldn't stop for a shot. I called in the neibors giant white dog shortly after that and took a few yells to get it to run away. Then had one come in behind me and stop twice for a shot but it was on the other side of a fence I didn't have permission for.

Second set I parked the truck on the North side of the road and again broke trail to the south. I put out the caller and this time set up with the moon in my face and set up high on a hill. I let out a howl and had a pack fire up not 100 yards across the street. Another group lit up South of me. There was nothing I could do about the ones to the North so I decided to work the ones to the South. I threw several calls at them and 40 minutes later I saw the pair working their way across the field. The male disappeared behind a hill but the female stopped to take another look and that was one look to many for her as the shot dropped her in her tracks. 185 yard shot and #19 for me this year was down. She was an ugly one so she's getting a ride home and then to the carcass pile but another one down anyway. I'm thinking of giving it a shot again tonight to get that last one.

Good luck to anyone venturing out.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
