Firearm moose season opened up last week with unseasonable warm temperatures.  One would have guessed that  moose would be tough locate, not the case.  We had 4 adult tags in camp last week and by the morning of day three all tags were full.  John Gaffeny’s gang from Tweed, ON took a bull and a cow the first two mornings of the hunt and the Bobcaygeon boys took a bull and a cow on morning one and three.  Good times had by all.  Grouse were plentiful as well.  The warm temperatures didn’t seem to affect animal sightings.  This week is much different.  High winds and snow flurries are making hunting a little more challenging.  As a bonus last week we were able to get a few guys out musky fishing.  We didn’t have a lot of action but were able to boat at least one fish per day with a couple of other opportunities.  The fall fish are really starting to put weight on, Shawn Farr landed a 47 inch musky that had a girth of 21″.  The walleye bite this fall has been spotty.  Just a couple reports of  excellent fishing, most of what we heard was a slow bite.  The last few days I have been hearing tons of deer sighting.  That’s good to hear after such a tough winter the animals endured last season.
