While the past few weeks the bow hunting was as good as it has ever been for me and my brother, rifle season seemed to be a different story. As soon as we had gotten into our stands on rifle morning the deer seemed to quit moving. While I did fire a few 300 yard shots at a buck I was not able to get a deer this weekend. Hopefully they are moving next weekend.

After multiple years I bowhunting I finally got my first deer with the bow on Saturday evening. It was a slow but windy day, not greatly enjoyable until the last couple minutes. After a 20 yard shot the doe fell in the field less than 100 yards away.

The old floor in the boat was rotting and needed an upgrade so my dad and I set out to do just that. We not only replaced the existing floor and carpeted it but we also added plywood to the next bench adding about four feet of flat flooring

This year I have found out the that the youth turkey license is much more lenient than the one week license lotteries for adults. So I am able to hunt any of the five or six days seasons. So since my uncle and cousins had "A" season licenses I decided to hunt with them. The first few days were slow with only one bird coming to my call but hangin up almost 200 yards out. But on the last morning of the season my uncle and I left the private land to hunt public where we had seen a few birds the night before. Through out the morning I heard gobbles in the distance but then nothing for three hours until noon when I heard a gobble directly behind me. Three jakes and a tom stepped out of the woods immediately behind me. The tom unfortunately circled around me and didn't give me a shot. But the jakes were very interested in my hen decoy and stayed around. Just when the tom disapeared I shot one of the jakes. It was my first turkey.

I spent a majority of time in the spear house and the northern above is the only fish I saw besides one small northern while setting up. But it was 31" and big enough to keep me spearing.
The biggest perch of the weekend was 12" long and caught by my brother.

Ice fishing has been consistent for my brother and me. The crappies have been biting in intervals and we usually go home with at least a few. But this last time out brought a few firsts with it. The perch pictured below were about 11 inches and were the first perch we caught that didn't look like bait. We also had a camera down and saw quite a few northerns so we dropped a sucker down and added a few bobbers but unfortunately didn't get a bite on it. Maybe next time I'll be back with spear in hand.
