Well folks unfortunately I did not even get past the front door this morning...which may have been a blessing in disguise or the good lords way of saying not today. My 22 month old son, was missing his daddy something fierce lately, woke up at 0330 and would not go back to sleep nor would he allow me to leave his side...in as much as i wanted to go find that Gob, it pales in comparison to the bear hug my little man gave me. so the Gob will have to wait for another day.
I'll purchase an additional permit for next week and meet up with the Gob then...that will also give me the weekend to scout and refine my setup.
Rennat thanks for the advice, I had actually thought about doing just that when I missed out on the Gob that came in, but I was running short on time and hoped he might circle back around...but next time I just might put the stalk on him! I see your from Maine, love it there..I went to Saint Joe's on Lake Sebago...someday I'm going to retire there...just need to convince the wife
I appreciate all the advice given here, you fellas have been great and with each post you enlighten me more about the habits of these wonderful creatures, for sure I've only scratched the surface!
Hope to have picture for ya Monday morning, but I'm sure I'll have a few more questions beforehand so stay tuned!
