    Tom Luba Some days you just have no inkling whatsoever what will happen until it’s entered in the column designated as “your life” by the heavenly powers. A splendid example is one fall Saturday morning last year. Like many other days in October, I hooked up the boat and was ready to reacquaint myself with a number of smallmouth...

    After baiting and spraying Bacon scent on this tree, it’s common for bears to rub the scent all over them as this little guy is doing. Hit it hard again this week placing stands and baiting. Bugs are still an issue but weather has been cooperating.  While setting a stand I shoved some tree bark up my thumbnail and now it is infected. ...

    Besides the huge wind storm on Monday it was wonderful to be in the woods these past few days.  Those pesky bugs have not slowed down any.  Tuesday we set four more stands, my arms and hands are now covered with battle worn cuts and scratch's.   Time is going by fast, only 2 months till bear season.  ...

    I think this is the summer without summer.  Two days in a row up at 4:00 am and greeted by fog, light drizzle and 45 degree temperatures. Out the door by 5:00 am.  It feels like fall and nice for baiting and setting stands. I’m getting used to the pesky bugs.  Went solo this week setting a few stands.  Had to laugh a...

    Repeat, repeat, repeat.  To begin the first stand set up of the morning I ventured onto a private property area where beavers have flooded deep woods. I had to wear knee high rubber boots to stay dry.  It’s a very cool set up; the bait station is on dry land but the hunter’s tree stand is located in the water...

    By Mike Foss Almost a repeat of last week; set more stands.  Didn't take long with some bait stations as I have multiple bears now showing up for a free meal.   There is so much standing water it’s unbelievable. A huge rain storm on the weekend washed out roads everywhere. Along with the Mosquitoes and Ticks the Hor...

    Things are heating up. Found deep paw impressions on the forest floor of a monster bear that sends a flashback of the great monster bear, Snaggle Tooth.  This is a new private area that we will be hunting this fall, in this bear’s home range. He is alive and well.  He is not the only big bear I have located either....
