In the stand

Harley and I are out for an afternoon hunt today. We had high hopes but Things are shaping up to be slow today. The wind is starting to gust, and the woods has a lot of gun hunters scouting last minute. Next weekend the Wisconsin gun deer hunt begins. 

It's fun to watch all of the blaze orange activity talking place. Sometimes even illegal.  Hanging stands early, bait piles, yeah gun season is a special time. It reminds me of watching some of the salmon fisherman in the river. (You know the kind). 

We found some good sign today, in a spot with no hunter sign. Hopefully it will play well this season.

November 10th Report: Lake Michigan

We got out this morning about an hour before sunrise with a WNW wind. Action was fair until the sun came up. We managed a handful of browns. Some are bound for the grill and others for the smoker.
