The picture is from a couple years ago at bear camp around Marquette. I love to bear hunt and the Baldwin camp is the perfect place to try and fool old “blackie!” Not only can I hunt bear, but I can fish for brookies from the creek, bow hunt for deer, or trap beavers. Boy am I looking forward to this upcoming September.
I already have a freezer full of bear bait and will be collecting donuts from the pastry shop just down the road. This year I’ll be using a crossbow for the first time. If I can get one within 40-45 yards I’m confident I can “Get er Done” as Larry the Cable Guy would say! The only problem I can foresee is I’ll be by myself, and at 67 years old that causes some concern for my wife. I can understand, but Dick Baldwin has always taken care of us Ansel’s, and I suspect he’ll be watching over me like he always does. It will be good to catch up with Gary and Nancy Baldwin and their two kids Paula and Matt, who happen to have four boys between them. Ruth and Dick are the Matriarch and Patriarch of the Baldwin crew and try to keep everyone in line.
I’m heading for the northwoods in the morning and will be working on the cabin for our 4th. of July family outing. It may be a week or so before I can get back to blogging, so be expecting a report from our big summer adventure.
