Lets here some good dog stories as well.
Can we attach pictures in this forum now?
Ive done terrible shooting this year and today was a classic miss of another gimme. 3 shots down a wide open logging trail and all missed. In the 2 years previous I would take too much time to aim and shoot and not get off a meaningful shot.
Now this year is just the opposite where I just point and shoot. I am probably shooting too high and behind. BUT ITS CALLED A SCATTERGUN FOR A REASON .
I agree with the ATV/UTV’s. They irritate the daylights out of me. The county land around me has basically turned into a racetrack for them. They run around locked gates, over berms, and are a ridiculous hazard on county highways.
At least by me, they arrived on the landscape in huge numbers in 2020 when the north woods population exploded. Money and credit came easy for lots of people, and so came all the obnoxious toys.
On the bright side, the way our economy is headed you’ll probably see a lot of these up for sale soon.
Graceonpoint I couldn't agree more.
Last weekend in Marinette county I could hear a ton of them going in one direction on a trail in the distance. It seemed like a convoy that went on for a crazy long time. As I hunted my way toward that trail and get near it I heard a some coming back the other way on the trail. When I got in sight of the trail I saw a bunch go by and after a while I thought jeez how many are there? So I started counting after quite a few had already passed. I sh$t you not I counted another 108 all in one pack. All revving engines, breaking the back tires loose, swerving around and tearing up the trail.
I guess they have an equal right to be there and it's great for the tavern owners.
Anyone else annoyed by all the ATV/UTV traffic? I hunt primarily Sawyer and Washburn counties its like being in a Mad Max movie some days, those dang RZRs can absolutely fly. I'm not sure what the laws are but it appears to be the wild west. I know gates don't seem to matter or an obvious bird hunter parked at the gate. People just head on in.
