Got back yesterday from a much needed long weekend in the western UP. Warmer and wetter than normal but over all success.
* Scouted a new spot for the rifle opener near a cedar gully, jumped some deer on a nearby bedding/transition area, thinks its goona be good!
* Anywho..we know of some "cheeseheads" that hunt about half mile from where I park, I walk in a good mile deeper into my spot. I had to laugh, I"ve never seen so much orange ribbon on trees where they walk in. Looked like a damn Mardi Gras float. Orange tape every 10' or so. Funny thing is that where they hunt isn't that thick. Then notice at least 4 trailcams set up all within just yards of each other. Good Lord!
* Drive home easy, but once I got to middle of southbound Mac Bridge traffic came to standstill for construction. Yep sitting mid bridge is a bit unnerving. That old girl sways in the wind.
* Stopped at Jay's in Gaylord, figured the 50 year promotion might be a good thing. Was disappointed.
