Early Season Opener Plans   15 comments

The year 2012 was one hell of a roller coaster ride for me and the people in my orbit. Ahead lies 2013, a year that, at the moment, seems to stretch out in front of me forever. There are so many goals, new experiences, trips, and friendships to grow, and healing to be done. I hope your 2013 is off to a good start and continues to deliver on all you’ve hoped for.

The 2013 Early Season Trout Opener is about four weeks away, here in Wisconsin. Have you got a plan? My friends and I have started making plans. Here’s a shot of the stretch we’re planning to fish on March 2nd (sorry, I can’t spray the location all over the internet).

Afterwards we’ll wet our whistles here and recount the epic day of fishing we shared.

And after that, we’ll come up with many more plans, ideas to improve our success, and talk of hunting Turkeys, Deer, Musky, and many, many more trout.

Here’s to 2013!

 

An update from the deer hunter   Leave a comment

Stephen Rose and John Jackels went up to Cumberland, Wisconsin this weekend to get after some whitetail deer. I sent Stephen a text last night asking, “Did you get one?”  Here’s the update from Stephen as of 5:30 this morning…

Nothing yet. John got a nubbin buck on the first day but I failed to shoot when I had an opportunity. I sighted a doe in a small group but saw a buck following them out of the corner of my eye. I swung my gun to the buck, he saw, and immediately turned away from me and down a hill. He managed to alert all fived does in front of him at the same time.

Suddenly I had no shot and haven’t had an opportunity since.

The woods are really beautiful but the nice weather is keeping the deer on their beds. We haven’t seen many on our piece of land.

Guns went off everywhere the first day. I heard hundreds. But yesterday was pretty quiet.

Still got this morning…
