Yes indeed, cancer sucks. I'm glad to hear you were able to make those dreams come true, Hugo. Nothing better than an elk bugle in the cool, crisp mountain air. I love it. I hope you sty healthy and have a great fall. Thank you very much for the well wishes.
Anyone get out yet for some grouse that can share any reports?
I don't hunt in the woods so I am limited to prairie grouse. Unfortunately my new pup isn't far enough along yet and not big enough for the rattlesnake vaccine so I will not be out on the grasslands any time soon with him. We are also dealing with above normal temps so I don't want to take any chances because I know the snakes will be out yet. Plus I don't like running dogs in this heat anyway let a lone a puppy who doesn't know how to pace himself yet.
What’s the farthest south you’ve ever seen gray jays? My brother in law has property just north of Cloquet, but I’ve never seen any there. I see plenty in Grand Marais and Ely. But I think the farthest south I’ve seen them is in George Washington State Forest, north of Grand Rapids.
