With a fresh foot of snow on the ground, winter is definitely here to stay. The boat is tucked away in the garage and that's a wrap on the 2015 softwater season. Overall it was a good fall on the water. Hunting season is in full swing, which is a nice distraction while we wait for ice.
Check out the current (November/December) issue of Ontario OUT OF DOORS magazine for a deer hunting feature I wrote called North Woods Bucks. I'm still chasing whitetail but hope to have a good report by the end of the season.
