Labor Day weekend was a fantastic outdoor weekend! Camped Friday-Monday with my family. Met up with oldrookie and his son, tilesetter and his brother and some of their kids, and seabee and his family. I did a squirrel hunt/deer scouting trip on Saturday morning...no squirrels but very productive scouting trip. I saw 2 large does and a fawn at the waters edge on the way back to the hunt. I boated out to the hunting area, by far the easiest and quickest way to get there. Found the spot to put up a ladder stand while scouting and then found a drop shed with 5 points that had been snacked on by the squirrels and mice. Tilesetter rolled in with his gang that evening and we had a great visit "shootin' the breeze" around the campfire well into Sunday morning. Oldrookie showed up Sunday morning and later that day I took him and his son to the stand location I found on Saturday. They provided great help in us getting the stand setup. It was a long hike back through some pretty rugged terrain. Someone will score from this stand site. I setup a trail cam in the area so hopefully in about a week I'll get back out there and have some pics to post. Seabee and his family showed up on Sunday also and it was nice to meet them, really nice people. Looking forward to hunting with all of them this fall during archery season. At camp on Saturday evening we had a big wild game feed...Goose kabobs, venison steak, venison brats, Elk steaks, and fried fish. One of the guys in camp took 3 geese on Friday and 5 ducks on Monday. I caught 8 bass on Saturday morning while fishing my way back from the scouting trip, all on a top water Chug Bug, with 1 keeper in the bunch. Great way to end the summer....BRING ON DEER SEASON!!!!!
