Late fall/early winter is upon us. Lakes are freezing over and it is an exciting time to be in Sunset Country. Late season is my favorite time for mature whitetails and moose, it also signals for me the beginning of a new season for wolves. Every year I get even more excited to purse these amazing predators.
Lots of exciting things coming up this season. A very busy guiding schedule is shaping up and tournaments are lined up. Looking forward to representing Kingfisher Boats, Natural Bakery, Okuma rods and reels, Minn Kota trolling motors, Northland tackle again this year. Let's get started! See you on the water!
It's nearly time for me to make my annual journey to Lake Michigan for the Sturgeon Bay Open bass tournament. This is my kick off to the season and really gets me primed for the months ahead. With the late ice out on Lake of the Woods this year the lake trout should still be shallow in the last weeks of May and I look forward to mixing them into the walleye trips I have booked.
Having a wolf tag in your pocket is never a bad idea, (you are allowed 2 per season in Ontario). Opportunity presented itself this December while on an annual moose hunt with some friends and I ended up with this gorgeous silver/black male timber wolf. I can't wait until my winter wolf hunting groups arrive.
With a couple mild winters the deer herd in NW Ontario has strengthened once again. I caught many mature bucks on trail cams this past season. Long time client Al Richards took this smokin' 5x5 in early November. Keep an eye on the trail cam gallery for more shots of some big whitetails.
