It was a good weekend for the deer season opener. The weather was great and deer numbers are good. Saturday morning we did a good job towards filling the bonus antlerless tags we have. Terry got two, Wally got two and I got one. Eric didn’t see any and Gerry didn’t hunt that morning, he was holding down the cabin. Sunday, Eric made a great free standing shot on a forkhorn in excess of 250 yards. Terry saw deer, but none he wanted to shoot. Wally and I didn’t see a deer on Sunday. Monday, it was just Wally and I hunting. Wally didn’t see any deer. I saw seven; three had horns, but I wasn’t ready to take another one yet, so I tried taking pictures and that didn’t go very well.
Terry and I didn’t hunt on Saturday afternoon; we went fishing and fishing was a little slow. Terry caught three nice walleyes to keep and I caught a 27-1/2″ walleye. It was a nice fish; no camera, forgot it at the house.
Reports are that the fish bite was really good on Sunday, both on the river and at the Lighthouse and Morris Point Gaps. That seems to be the way it’s been all fall, good one day and not so good the next.
