      WELCOME NEW UJ MEMBERS   06/25/2017

      It seems the word is out and UJ is enjoying a steady stream of newly Registered Members. Welcome to all of you, and we are all looking forward to your positive participation. I strongly suggest you review the Board Guidelines that have been in place since 2002. The most significant thing being that UJ is a NO POLITICS BOARD. LInk:  UJ BOARD GUIDELINES   Also UJ stays afloat mainly through Member Donations. Once a Donation is made you are placed in the Contributing Member Group with extra Priviliges. I am getting very few new Donations so hopefully this will spur that on a bit. Link:  New Members/Donations/Priviliges

The 3 WC were:

  • Adult female
  • Adult male
  • Juvenile, indeterminate. It was between the common length for a Male & Female

These were my first WC of the year. I am planning on taking out Betty again tomorrow afternoon.

Got buzzed by a Huey out hunting yesterday. It looked like they were doing banking drills.

Hub, yes I do. I shot a small popple in half Saturday but didn’t get a pic of it. I just shattered it and sent splinters flying. I probably blast 5 or 6 every year. The other day I had a Facebook memory from 3 or 4 years ago where I blew a hole clean through a 5 or 6 in diameter birch tree. It made me smile a little. I am good at a few things - finding grouse (not killing them), sawing off trees, and falling down in the woods. 

 

Here are a few of the pics that showed up on my Facebook memories in the last week or so.
 

 I believe this one is from 2 years ago:

This one is from 5 or 6:

That's just awesome. Several year ago a fellow member an I were huntin grouse in WI. He shot a popple clean in half. I laughed at him and said you missed the bird. His reply, "Hell no, I went 2 for 1." Sure enough the bird lay flopping 10 yards from the downed popple.

Last day of the early dove season for us.  It certainly wasn't the sort of dove season we had here 10 years ago, when you could limit out in an hour with a .410; but there were shootable numbers for the first time in three years.  I'll take that.  Maybe it will be even better next year?

Our last dove for this year:

I have no idea why they close the early dove season a week before grouse open, then the middle dove season (which we don't bother with once we can do real upland hunting) opens when grouse open.  Must be some logic there, but it escapes me.  Next week, no "wild" seasons are open, so we'll probably hit the hunting club a couple of times to warm-up for ruffs.
