Today is the first day of rifle deer season, bucks only in this part of the state. Ever since they implemented antler restrictions 15 years ago which bucks have to have 3 points or more on one side we have seen a big difference in the size of the bucks we see.

33 degrees now and supposed to go up to 45 today.

Have a great day everyone. :D

A cool front is moving through today that's supposed to knock temperatures down a little from the almost 60 degree weather we had yesterday.

Have a great day everyone. :D

34 here this morning. It's been very dry as of late. Most of my bottom edge sets for mink and muskrat are no longer under water. I have not caught anything yet which has been a little frustrating.

Have a great day everyone. :D

I finished cutting up the buck I harvested on Monday. I ground up a lot of the meat and mixed it with pork because wife isn't a fan of older, bigger deer. Altogether I ended up with close to 70 pounds of meat off of that deer.

We had a little rain move through ahead of a cool front last night. Supposed to be in the upper 40's today and tomorrow.

TGIF Everyone. :D

Rifle season for deer continues today as doe become legal. Since I'm tagged out for buck I can only get a doe and I only have one tag for that. Today is also the last day of extended bear season so I can get a bear as well.
Good luck on the crappie if you're fishing today Chief.

Have a great day everyone. :D

You're doing a great job on the crappie Chief, that should make for a great Christmas feast!
I saw 6 deer all day yesterday. No clean shots were available. I also saw 2 dozen turkey. I'll be heading out later this morning to check the few traps I have out.

It's a cool 29 degrees here this morning.

Have a great day everyone. :D
