Heading North

Son-in-law and I are heading north tonight. Hitting the woods early Saturday north of Gaylord. Big Buck's Steak House is on the schedule Saturday evening after a day in the woods. Hopefully, there are a few yellows or greys to find first.

You should have no trouble finding a mixed bag if you know what you are looking for.

My parents started me hunting in Michigan in 1958. Been to Vanderbilt area 40 times or so. Hopefully, the ash borers haven't devastated our trees any worse than what they were last year. And, last year was looking bad for a lot of them.

Lot of 'em were going last year. Once they were dead we weren't finding any. Maybe after a couple years of being dead they'll produce like the dead elms did. Wouldn't that be something?

Re: Heading North

The ash have been dead around here in Ohio for a few years. Once they are dead, they are done. HOWEVER, If you see suckers at the bottom of the trees, some of the roots are still alive and those trees still will produce.

@Lowell....If you want really good food in Gaylord try Bennethums....it's the best food in Gaylord and the atmosphere is great....the one you mentioned has really gone way downhill....in my opinion...the food is awful now and way over priced....Bennethums is about same price range but the chef prepares everything fresh......just a recommendation...after living here a while....good luck in the woods

Re: Heading North

Ash borers? What exactly is it? Is that whats knocking the bark off the trees and turning it pale? Is it a parasite or a disease?
