Re: Thoughts?

The tweaking you did to the layout is pretty snappy. I also like the .pdf file downloads you've incorporated - that's a nice touch. If anything, I'd probably add a little java script for today's date/time in the header. You might also find an ad sponsor, Pine Tree Supper Club perhaps, that would be ...

Re: Death of a Legend!

Jeff - a 'Blind Robin' is a typical Northwoods bar snack food item. Think of an embalmed herring containing a lot of salt and a smell that only the truly adventurous (or a similarly pickled) individual would consume without having a gun held on them. <small>[ February 10, 2007, 06:21 AM: Message edi...

Just let me know when you are up here next, Jeff, and we'll get together. Heck, I'd have settled for a pickled turkey gizzard or a blind robin at Kahn's Bar.

Re: Wishing Tom Freude well

While I was long gone from school before Tom Freude arrived, I did have the pleasure of meeting and working with him in the mid-90's when I would do presentations at the middle school during Fire Prevention Week. Tom always impressed me as a caring and very capable individual who was a tremendous as...

Re: Death of a Legend!

My point was that Old Scout, like me, enjoys a good buffet and could put a serious dent in the smorgasbord without much effort. Heck, the guy is big enough to twist the **** off of a grizzly bear. I could probably take him but he's older and wilier than me and would probably just leave me face down ...

Straight up. No points. Colts over Bears. This will be fun no matter how it turns out. Just be glad you don't have to feed Old Scout. I've heard that the All-You-Can-Eat buffet places around here try to lock the doors and turn out their lights when they see him coming... ;)

Re: Death of a Legend!

The Bears are quite possibly the worst team to ever make it to the Super Bowl. They've been the beneficiaries of a weak schedule, LOTS of non-calls/bad calls and just plain ******* luck all year. All Dungy needs to do is review the last Packer-Bear game and copy McCarthy's approach. 'Da Bears' got n...

Shed Antlers

Does anyone else here hunt for shed deer antlers over the winter? The bucks are starting to drop their old antlers now and will continue thru March or so. I go hiking about every week and am hoping to find enough of them to try making a few lamps.

I'm trying to think of a dignified, sportsman-like way to comment upon the play of the Chicago Bears this evening. Can't think of any.

Re: PACKER - Bear Game

I'll echo that, Jeff. The Packers don't belong in the playoffs. Period. HOWEVER, this being the time of year for miracles, I'd like Da Pack to pound the Da Bears in the regular season finale and then hang around the playoffs just long enough to knock them out of it. That would be sweeeeeeeeet! TBSS.

Re: Sledding in Tomahawk

You betcha! Frenchtown Park is great for tubing and sledding (or will be if we get some snow) and it's free. If you know your way around town - go one block south past Charlie's Self Serve on HWY 86, turn right just after the tracks, then go one block west and make a left turn. Continue to the top o...

Re: Seek your input regarding deer hunting

I hunted hard every day but Thanksgiving, sitting along trails and sneaking through bedding areas. I saw a couple dozen deer and passed up a few smaller bucks (less than 8 points). All in all an enjoyable year but not a great one. Based on my own observations and from talking with many others, I'd a...

Re: Lake Alice

Lots of stump fields and relatively shallow for the most part. The main river channel has some depth to it and there are also some other deeper pockets. You might want to contact the Tomahawk Chamber for a lake map. Night fishing off a pier, listening to the loons and bullfrogs while watching the sk...

I could go along with a lighter sentence if this had been a one-time event where these young men got caught up in something that they lacked either the maturity or the self-discipline to get out of.

Re: Lake Alice

Any impoundments on the Wisconsin River itself are kept at a very stable level (Lakes Alice and Mohawksin for example) so, no, you don't experience the fluctuations that you would with feeder rivers such as the Rice (Nokomis) and Spirit. As to your second question, it would depend on what type of fi...

Re: Lincoln County Policy

Ill eagles are usually taken to the Raptor Rehabilitation Center near Woodruff. You'd have to maybe check with a county board member or the Sheriff's Department about the other stuff.
