December 13, 2017 – Lodge cleanup

 The hunters are gone and the lodge is quiet until Christmas time as we are hosting this year and the lake is a great place to be. I have spent several days cleaning up around camp and out in the field. I still have lots of feed around so back I go hauling it out to the bush. Every year I tell myself all is good but once again I’m out tweaking stands. I feel that several stands will be improved with further shooting distance and larger viewing areas. 
The weather is exceptional as our daytime highs are well above freezing. This is great news for the mature bucks who need to build up there fat reserves. Mild weather and limited snow will go along way to getting these guys back in shape. 
I will add a few pics of today’s baiting and a few members of the clean up crew at the lodge are busy tidying up around the grain bin.
Merry Christmas everyone, Trent DeBusscheredec13-1 dec13-2 dec13-3 dec13-4 dec13-5
