That's really pretty. I need to get out to the mountains. They're not that far from me.
We had lots of strikes, got some up to the boat, and my dad landed a Rainbow trout that he released. Not that big.... Came home empty handed except for some stories.
Last week we both bagged our limits and let a bunch of fish go. I reminded my dad that's why it's called fishing.
Here's some of the load out. Turns out trout love crappie jigs.
Well, even if you can't get outside, at least you're packin' a real gun under a cool shirt (I shall take the credit for introducing the guayabera to all my bros up here in the PNW)...
Series 70 Colt .45, loaded with Buffalo Bore 255 gr hardcast, confident it will stop a black bear or mountain lion, maybe a grizzly with proper shot placement. My wife and I like to walk trails in bear country, can’t believe a lot of people walk these trails with no defense at all, especially young people!
Most of today's young people have no real idea of the dangers that lurk nearby. Most have never been in the wild and even those that are, have no idea. If it does not pop-up on the phone screen, they have no clue
Nice Colt. I know it is comforting to have on you while walking in the woods.
That's a really nice gun! Be sure the critter means you harm before you shoot it. Smokey may just want to admire your pistol.
Yea, and they usually have their earbuds in- they couldn’t hear a grizzly 10 ft away.
I hope I never have to kill any wildlife with it, but it’s nice insurance!
Temperatures were nice even though we hiked in the rain at least part of everyday.
I did add a CRKT fixed blade to my hiking pack. The knife I used the most is the little Swiss Army. Carry handgun is a 442.
Great Pictures looks like a nice State Park.
I will be in Florida for two weeks in August. I may need to plan a day trip!!!
Mummy Mountain looms ahead.
A wide variety of mushrooms were popping up along the trail. I suspected these ones were not friendly. I mean, they look angry. And they had a knife!
Quick look back.
Bumped into some locals.
At long last we arrived.
So, I took only one gun this time, mostly to cut weight. I chose the G20 with 190gr copper mono solids. I removed the light, and made use of a couple 10rd mags. So 10 rounds in the gun, and 10 in the 5.11 pouch on my belt. Though I couldn't help but thrown a full 15 rounder in my pack, just in case. Less weight on my belt was a nice change.
Stunning and beautiful views guys!
It was a nice day. We had the place mostly to ourselves. The water was too warm for trout but the perch and crappie were hungry.
Unfortunately, the perch were way too small to keep. These guys however, will make for some nice filets.
I took my K6S and a "Dewclaw" from Scallywag Tactical. I ended up using the scissors on my Leatherman Juice.
That's a totally awesome view! Would make for a picture perfect postcard!
And it's great that you got to spend time fishing with your Dad! Doesn't get any better than that!
I had to cross the creek a couple of times
Not sure if it's clear but my foot was In the water and my Waterproofer (Nikswax) was still repelling water.
I like that view
And the obligatory boring gun porn. To be clear I actually was carrying all three of them
This is the view from the top
Got rained on a little
(Pro tip, if you're on top of a mountain and it starts raining you get down off the mountain right now)
Gerber USGI Multitool
Ugly green Glock
And my Camelbak HAWG pack.
@WisBorn old stomping ground near Gordon Wisconsin.
Mrs and I drove up and a few days later, our friends drove up and joined us for the last three days.
We fished the lake where our cabin was:
And hiked a little to Wisconsin’s largest waterfall. Actually this isn’t it… but we liked this one better
We also stopped by the local watering hole for some of Wisconsin’s finest ale. The locals had a good episode of gunsmoke playing on the tv.
I carried my hellcat the entire trip.
I wandered about seeing what I could see.
Lots of squirrels
A horse shoe washed out of somewhere. This photo does not show just how steep this hill is. The grade going from bottom to top of photo is got to be approaching 100% grade. My favorite AR at present was my firearm of choice that day. SBA3 pistol braced pistol, 9-inch 300 BO and AAC SDN-6 suppressor.
The shoe still had nearly all of the nails still in it and they were still clinched for the most part. It would be interesting to know how the horse lost this shoe or if possible this was his last shoe...
I shot two armadillos and failed to recover either of them. The first one, as best I can tell got back to his hole and the second one rolled/ran down into a deep ravine and I lost track of him. In the process of looking for both of them I can across this big old box turtle.
Thought you were going up at the end of this month? Looks like you had a good time!!!
It's hard to find a place that is more relaxing than UP-NORT (have a Northern Wisconsinite pronounce it for you)
Looks like a great time
