Anybody been out yet? I'm headed up to Chippewa Wednesday through Monday. We'll be fishing as well. The old cast and blast.

Was out turkey hunting near Manitowoc over the weekend. Did kick up a woodcock out of some wet ground in a stand of hardwoods. Some cooler weather and more leaves off the trees would probably help a lot.

Grouse - my father in law can't run his dog properly in thick cover, so the dog kicked as many birds as he pointed because he lets him range 60-70 yards into the bush before he starts to call him back. Doing that is fine in a pheasant field, but if you're letting him run 40 yards past where you can tell where he is, that causes problems. Another guy ran him for an hour and a half and didn't have any issues keeping him close. That said, I blew a couple of perfect point/flushes on the trail edge. I still haven't shot one.

Woodcock - everyone who was willing to get deep into the popple and along swamp edges limited. Another guy in our camp has a wirehair that's a woodcock machine, so my time hunting with him was productive.

Good ratio, though.

I had a double get up in front of me at 10 yards and fly straight away from me, which would have been an excellent opportunity, but there was a stand of balsams at 5 yards. We had a few that were like that. I think the birds were running under them and then taking off.

We also caught a six-man limit of crappies in 2.5 hours with another ~15 released on top of that. I caught my new PB of 14" and we had 5 over 13".
