With a dog bump up to a canoe.
Shiawassee is always an adventure. Lol
There are a million things that can make you smack your forehead in that swamp. I was about 400 yards from the launch when my boat motor quit last week. After about a 100 yards of walking the boat back toward the launch through the flooded timber I finally noticed the kill switch cord hanging from my wrist.
Craig we are probably who you are talking about, we took 10 and the guy in 8 did point us in the right direction. Saw some things on the map that looked like dikes, we were incorrect lol. But like Aaron said, at least we buckled down and got out of everyones way with time before shooting light. We somehow managed to even get our dekes set in time, not that anything came by early.... Normally we would have hunted the PM so we could navigate in the light, but tough to do that this year.
Oh well, we learned a lot about the area. We shot ducks. We had fun. Got some exercise. I like to think we didn't piss anyone off too bad, but that depends on the hunter. Dude in 8 was nice. Dude at the launch who pointed us that way, not so sure lol.
Haha. That was my friend, Fred. He was hunting 6 or 7 and told me about a couple guys being lost. Next time just launch from Wahl rd. .5 mile boat ride and 1 dike pull.
Yeah that sounds just a little more enjoyable! Haha. I'll just chalk it up to scouting 1-8
Still betrer than chisel plow? AJ is a punishment magnet.
aj, if you need help with directions or how to get in somewhere, just shoot me a text or fb message. i'll save you some time and effort you laid down
how do two people pull a 1500 lb boat??? there arent many more than 8 dikes on the entire grounds..
by removing 700 lbs of gear each time. do you need video proof or can we just go with the story lol
and some serious power lifting.....
8 sets of deadlifts and farmers walks. love it
To be fair I was over confident. we both know Harsens like the back of our hand so, "we got this!!!!" we drew well, not that that meant anything but we were both wired to hunt.
I now live on the other side of the state so we have to get creative.
there will be a next time guaranteed
Shiawassee should consider installing mechanical winches on all the dikes with permanent rollers with opening for vehicles drive through. It is just so easy to do. Not everybody can afford $3000 Lewis winch for $1500 boat. Kayak is not a good way to go because of long distance for some of the zones. Also, need to update the map showing launch and pull over for each area. Current map is confusing.
Best thing to do is make a day out of it in off season and mark with GPS ..Not hard at all ..did it last year and have everything in hand to go anywhere out there..Not as hard as one thinks when you prepare for what your up against. Just have to put in time and get it done..
Do you want someone to shoot your ducks for you? You seem to want a lot of things given to you.
I see nothing about the map that’s confusing. Match irbil with satellite images as well and it’s pretty straight forward.
You can get a winch/saw combo for $800.
Wow, this is a tough one. I thought the chisel plow hunt would surely be the end of my ankles, but I thought the 8 dike hunt would surely be the end of my back. At least I didnt have to do the chisel plow field in neoprenes.....
Thanks for the offer kid! I will shoot you a PM with my #
C'mon you practically live there an know your private hunt club. Seems like couple of areas shown below should be accessed as shown but map does not clearly show that. Can you send some info for $800 winch, I need one. thanks
