15 Days til Deer season, then the trails open

Opening Day of Deer Season today. This is probably no dig deal to those of you down in the flatlands but it is huge up here in the UP. Kids take off school, Doctors take off work, it is like the whole world stands still for deer season. But with all the snow some of the hunters have left already. Below is an email I got from my friend Bob from the Car Shack Deer Camp. They have been coming up here for 60+ years.

We tried to get to the “Car Shack” with a front end loader….decided the snow was too heavy…took 1/2 hr to just clear the 1st cabin and it would take 4-6 hrs to get to the back cabin…then how would we walk in the woods???  We called the others coming up and turned them around at FanDaLac Wi.
They may try in a week or so and stay in the First Cabin if the snow packs.  If so they will bring apples.  I am done till
spring unless I come snowmobiling in Jan or Feb.
At least I got a beef sandwich.  14hr drive up and a 13hr drive back in 48hrs.  What a guy will not do for a beef sandwich and a hug from Becker!!!!


Weather: a break for a bit from the snow

Trail Conditions: SNOW
