Will be out to Rib1

Recommended Posts

Hi Jim, I probably won't be able to make it down there tomorrow. I have some work to do in the morning. If I finish up early enough maybe I'll take a ride down. There was a Boreal chickadee spotted today near by ribs1 so you might get lucky and have one show up. If you come up Hwy 53 it might be worth it to take Lake Nichols Rd across to Hwy 7. A great gray owl was spotted there on Friday. Its been a popular road in the past for them as well.

Well, with the word out, looks like I'll be taking most of my S-Z Bog trips on weekdays to avoid the crowds of weekend birders. smilesmile

Good thing no one knows where that other ribs site is, Jonny, or that one would be overrun, too.

I here you Steve!....I met Jim there earlier this morning (pure coincidence really) not much "action" for sure but then again it takes time for it to become "established"...We watched 2 gray jays and that was about it.....Jim continued on to the "weasel Site"...I went back to Hibbing via Hwy #5....Heading to "Carey Lake" in a few minutes to where I through some black oil for the chickadees yesterday....

Thanks for the report, man. I reckon that quiet site will get going pretty good once birds find it. It held a lot of woodpeckers, siskins, redpolls and chickadees last year.

I got there around 8 and set up my blind and was set by 8:15 and sat for a hour and only had a red squirrel. It will get going in due time but ribs 2 had plenty of activity.

Well, ribs2 had a few more days to build activity than ribs1, and I expect that has made the difference. Ribs1 will for sure put out over time, considering all the activity it had last year.

Well, I'm sure there has to be another spot where everyone is wishing you a Happy Birthday but since I ain't finding it, Happy Birthday Steve! You must be what, almost 40? Okay, 35. Maybe go out and celebrate with some ribs tonite! grin

Thanks man! They nailed my birthday over on the photo sharing board.

I actually celebrated all day today in the Bog, partly at ribs2 (boreal chickadees, b-c chickadees, northern shrike, gray jays, common redpolls, downy woodpeckers) and partly along Lake Nichols Road, where jayinMN and I coralled a great gray owl just after sundown.

Yes!

    • 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?
