The week before Halloween my friends and I usually travel to Ontario, Canada, near the Northwest Angle. We would hunt deer on the many islands located on Lake of the Woods.

There was one year we got stuck 30-miles out when a storm blew in like the one this week. With 50-mile sustainable winds, we had 4 to 6 foot waves as we fought our way back to deer camp! We took two boats, a 17-foot Alumacraft and a Bayliner runabout. I was driving the Alumacraft, while wave-after-wave would crash over the bow; only to land on the motor behind me.

We pulled ashore twice to start a fire and wait for the wind to subside. The squalls would raise the lake to our face — drenching our souls and leaving a chill I still feel today!

Congratulations Kevin! This was his first trip to Arnesen’s Rocky Point Resort.
Of course, it’s always the new guy who lands the biggest fish!

This Pike was exactly 40-inches with plenty of battle scars. He was blind in the left eye with a bite on his back and the top tail fin was missing.

It was the week of Halloween 08 and Matt, Tim, Ryan and I traveled to the Northwest Angle of Lake of the Woods, about 450 miles from the Twin Cities to Ontario, Canada. This is serious big buck hunting country!

Pictured below: Tim and his 9-point buck!

We had a little problem Saturday morning trying to get our hunting license, but once we found someone who would sell us a license, we quickly packed our boats and were on our way. The first day was simply scouting and putting up tree climbing stands.
