Just got back in KY last night. The past 6 days have been the week from HELL!!! On top of a terrible wind storm that provided a ton of "horizontal" timber and a 24 hour power outage Tuesday into Wednesday ... I got to spend most of this time flat of my back and finally in the Park Falls hospital with a case of anaplasmosis (a tick borne illness similar to Lyme Disease) ... did I mention how much I HATE deer ticks??? Anyway, once diagnosed, the recovery is pretty quick once the antibiotics kicked in, and I feel almost back to normal now. From talking to my partner, after the storms passed through, the moisture really helped to woods and scenting conditions and the grouse hunting has finally picked up and became consistent, so if any of you guys are still considering going north ... you just may have lucked into the best hunting of the season.
