Where were you burning?

That is some of the cleanest Nomex I have ever seen. grin

Do you have anymore fire pics?

hahah fresh nomex straight from mifc i believe. I dunno why we have to send our gear back every year, I like it broken in and used looking. I told my crew members they oughta roll around in the black to at least look like they'd been on a few fires before. burn was down by rushford - have some fire pics from last year but those are the only decent ones from this year

Neat shots! At least yours was prescribed unlike the Carlos Avery fire today.

well apparently we were going to be called out for that fire, but we had to be demobilized in order to make it to work today. so i think mifc didn't want us going out unless we could commit to being out there for as long as it took. bummer, would have loved to work some wildfire instead of a 2 acre prescribed burn!

Good stuff, goblue!

Are you SURE this wasn't a planned photo op? The times I've been along on presribed burns as a newspaper writer or photographer, the Nomex was so broken in you had to hunt to find the yellow. gringrin

Again, nice pics! smilesmile

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
