Where the weekends are spent

Ice fishing season begins again and every chance I get you'll see me at one of these units.The portable hut beats the tarp, you can throw everything in the sled, ice auger,heater and your fishing gear.Drag this handy hut to small ponds for speckles or large deep lakes for great fighting lake trout though the hard water, any species of fish these are great products to use. The larger seasonal ice huts are great for the family's. Good warmth,plenty of room to play cards, watch movies, of course this is when the fish are not biting, or just enjoy the beautiful scenic view in front of you from sun up to sun down you gotta love the winter time for hard water fishing.

In the last three year's l've started my four day turkey hunt with the bow.

But, always had no luck, Just hens coming into my decoy or the Toms would stay a distance away for my bow. So this year my strategy was to take a bird first with my shotgun, then use the bow. It payed off the first day. I took a nice jake.

The next three days with the bow I was back to the same routine, Just hens at the decoy and Toms a distance away. Also the rain was a factor again, Maybe even the Toms just don't like me with my bow. Oh well, still had a great time with the Just Us Hunting crew.

Good meals and lots of new and old stories told. Looking forward to next year.
