    First ice!!

    Three walleyes in the pail.

    Livescope is absolutely insane.

    Watched all three come in and hit the rattle spoon.

    Ice fishing is one thing I really miss about Idaho. Lots of fun and a great way to deal with a cold winter.

    We could run 5 rods per person which at times caused a real circus when 2 or 3 were getting bits at the same time. How many rods can you use at a time?

    We are limited to two.

    Usually running one rod and a tip up in the background.

    I know some places allow up to ten.

    There’s no way a guy could handle ten lines with a hot bite, but I’d love to give it he’ll trying.

    Not sure what was going on at the farm this year. Had a couple older age class bucks earlier in the year showing up on a regular basis but about mid July most buck activity seemed to cease, they just weren’t showing up on the cams. This was for all but a handful of 1.5yr olds.
    Work had me tied up tight for all of our early archery season but I was thankful to have the first week of our firearm season off.
    Opening morning was a busy one, they were running everywhere in the dark. I could hear bucks grunting in several different directions. Once daylight broke activity slowed down but you’d still see young bucks pushing does around. Had deer around me all morning and that continued to be the case going into the afternoon.
    Right around 1 a doe came out behind me and milled around for a bit, her fawn joined her shortly after. They were there for the better part of an hour. Heard a deer walking and assumed it was the doe or fawn so I didn’t pay it much heed. I caught movement about 50yds to my right and saw it was the doe/ fawn. Turned back to the noise and this buck had come out of the thick cover at 15yds behind me. He caught me moving and spun around but only went another 15yds till he stopped to look back……..his last mistake. One 150gr Accubond thru the heart and it was all over.

    Hit this tree hard before succumbing.

    Though you are correct......I'd rather see someone not in the know fishing and learning rather than someone bust his balls about shit.
    Happy Now
    Use wet hands or gloves to handle fish. Wet hands or gloves will help reduce the loss of a fish's protective mucus.

    Thank you! That was like a nice warm water wash and it totally removed all the sand that was collecting in there.

    Yeah, for some reason the down converting the JPEGs to post to the Snipers hide seems to be taken out all of the really cool effects the camera got.
