Timber Wolf

Thursday, Don and I took a ride in the forest area; not necessarily looking for something to shoot, but to see what we might see. We stopped three or four times to take short walks on some trails. One time I was standing on the road waiting for Don to come back and I saw something on the road. I didn’t have my gun with a scope, just my .410 bird gun and I just assumed it was a deer; but when we drove up to that spot, there were no deer tracks just wolf tracks. Then, several miles down the road, about 100 yards in front of the vehicle, out steps this big black timber wolf. Of course, he didn’t stand around long enough to pose for a picture, but we did get a good look at him. We did see three deer and four ruffed grouse for the day.

Deer season is going good. Gerry got a nice fork horn on Sunday morning. I got a doe and a bonus deer for the table on Saturday afternoon. Wally saw some deer over the weekend, but nothing that tempted him to shoot. Terry was not in the right place at the right time and didn’t see any.

Wally, Terry and I fished Saturday during the day for a couple hours and only caught one little sauger and a little walleye. Monday evening I fished for a couple hours and caught two little saugers; nothing to keep. Wednesday, I was seriously thinking of putting the boat away for the season, but gave the river another try. I fished late afternoon and caught five walleyes; kept three from 15″ to 18″ and released a 19″ & 26″. Surprise, surprise.
